add-to-goodreads-button3Josephine, Bodhi, and Caroline, live in a scientifically advanced

Victorian London as the Industrial Revolution is in full swing. Infrared goggles, dirigibles, and analog

computers exist alongside bustles, parasols, and high tea. On the grounds of an Old Saxon church, three

strange net-runners arrive from a future where everyone is assigned a barcode from the moment of

birth. What you buy, what you read, your health care history, your bank accounts, your measured

intelligence, are all captured by this barcode and sent to the feed of OmniCorp. Human data mining

forms the basis of a massive Industrial Complex, a thinly veiled profit center, based on the control of

human behavior. To interrupt the inception of OmniCorp, the net-runners, a subversive underground

group, enlist the aid of the steampunk Victorians to thwart a meeting between two men, who hundreds

of years earlier, laid the foundation for OmniCorp. Extraordinary figures race toward a rendezvous with

history, weave in and out of time, fight evil steampunk automatons, hide in Victorian brothels, fight

Indian mutinies, and take refuge in dystopian cyberpunk pawnshops, to insure a future where personal

privacy is protected over corporate power.

SJ runs three Indie Publishing companies: Crushing Hearts and Black

Butterfly, Hot Ink Press, and Vamptasy Publishing, UK.

Ten percent of all proceeds for SJ’s books go to Turning Point, a counseling

center for women in crisis or experiencing domestic abuse.

On a personal note, SJ Davis is the daughter of an ex-patriate British

mother and a Southern Baptist former CIA father. As a child, she spoke in silly accents and recounted

outlandish tales of fantasy over afternoon tea. To this day it remains her favorite activity. Born in Long

Island, NY, she was raised in the suburbs of Washington DC and went to school for a ridiculous amount

of time. She moved from Virginia to New Jersey to Philadelphia to Chicago to Detroit, and began her

writing career once her children were old enough to reach for the goldfish themselves. SJ is an avid tea

drinker, a stiletto aficionado, Doc Marten worshipper, punk rock listener, and lover of flip flops and

cardigans. She has a terrible sense of direction, loves gummy bears, and is a Johnny Depp fangirl.
