The future of Rapunzel, floating towers and braided silk

Braided Silk has released from Liquid Silver Books! This novella features a future of urban sprawl, pollution, bio-tech, and an out-of-control mad scientist. But it's also a story of self, finding what it means to be human, and love. Between primal attraction and expectations, love can get lost, but Zel and Langley struggle to find and keep that bond between them.

My second Future Tale, Braided Silk is another twisted fairytale in the futuristic setting of New Castle. Read an excerpt on my website, or check it out at Liquid Silver Books.

Braided Silk

Futuristic Romance/Twisted Fairytale/Biopunk -- Novella
Rapunzel was made with technologically advanced hair. As a trained Mother agent, Zel can't escape the DNA that makes her a pawn in corporate espionage. Kidnapped and held in a tower on Gothel Island, she falls to the sexual allure of her captor’s son, Langley, a man whose every tantalizing touch makes her forget she wasn’t born human.

Langley Gothel protests the existence of creations such as Zel, but when faced with losing her, he sees the truth: Life is precious, whether born, modified, or shaped in a Petri dish. He does the one thing he's thought he'd never do. He has to give up Zel, or become a mod. But will that be enough to get them down from the floating islands and safely to ground?
