Author, Kimberly Hix Trant releases an astounding novel about a true threat in our daily lives. We are building up a database for a future totalitarian society to use against us one hashtag at a time.
Decatur, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2015 -- Author Kimberly Hix Trant is pleased to announce the relaunch of her literary debut #hashtagged: This Is How The Future Started. #hashtagged is a gripping, thought provoking, and futuristic science fiction tale of a girl who holds the key to preventing an totalitarian future. With a unique concept, exciting storyline, and captivating writing style, the book is a must read.
This compelling storyline is based on the idea that humans are developing new technologies every day without thinking about the possible consequences. Every comment, video, post, and tweet being #hashtagged is creating a digital footprint. These footprints will be available in the future. Who will read them? How will these stored moments be used?
Since the initial release, the novel has left readers in awe of Trant's masterful storytelling. Reviewers are saying, "In the vein of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four, Kimberly Hix Trant's #hashtagged holds a secure place in the canon of paranoid fiction…She has created a world where the storage of information, regardless of the context and platform in which it is acquired, can be potentially deadly." Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer Grady Harp said, "She seduces us, gains our trust, and then takes on an adventure far beyond expectations. She writes with the surety of a journalist, but also with the style of an important emerging literary figure."
About Kimberly Hix Trant
Kimberly Hix Trant is a North Texas technology consultant with a degree in journalism from Texas A&M University. Her first exposure to computers came when her mother, an early champion of technology-based learning, came home with a TRS-80 computer and insisted Trant learn to use it.
Watching her granddaughter reminds Trant that future generations will never know the security and privacy of a life lived offline—and that everything posted online lives on.
The book is available on Amazon for purchase in Kindle and paperback formats.
