At last! On Amazon Kindle, Red Anemone Books is running a 99 cent e-Book promotion through the end of October for my science fiction novel “Autonomy.” Honest reviews welcome. Please pass along the news. Many thanks!

Autonomy (Science Fiction Novel)


Autonomy by Jean-Michel Smith (Science Fiction, 362 pages)

When Cal Sheldon puts himself into an artificial coma and loads his mind onto the advanced computer he and his university colleagues secretly designed, he leaves behind a dying Earth and discovers new life in the world they’ve created. This breakthrough gives rise to an underground community and launches an illegal scientific renaissance. But can they stay ahead of those who would destroy them? And do they have the courage to embrace a radical plan for survival, one that might give them the freedom they seek, but could cost them their very humanity?
