Hey everyone!  Today's the first day of the Creatives Virtual Con, and the signups didn't go quite as planned so I don't have additional bloggers, BUT  I do have a spotlight for an author, J.R.H. Lawless, and his book Always Greener!  It sounds really interesting, especially for fans of science fiction, dystopian, or comedy, so let's get into it!


In the year 2072, new technology allows the television to be broadcast straight into and out of the human eye.  When a reality show offers a lifetime of lazy luxury to the one person living the world's worst life, everyone is out to prove just how bad they've got it.  Eight contestants vie for the prize, allowing the whole world to see life through their eyes, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  Only the show's ever-smiling host, an equally hopeful and hapless former weatherman, seems to have any faith left in humanity.  Each week, he struggles behind the scenes as he attempts to elevate the show and wring meaning out of his own unhappy existence.  

Clever, hilarious, poignant, and relevant, this sci-fi satire mixes the whimsical wordplay and humor of Douglas Adams with the bleak social commentary of Black Mirror at its best.  


For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, Always Greener will be on sale for 0.99 cents on Kindle, so make sure to snag a copy!  Click HERE for more information from the publisher, including  testimonies, reviews, and purchase links!


J.R.H. Lawless is a bestselling SF author from Atlantic Canada who blends comedy with political themes - drawing heavily, in both cases, on his experience as a lawyer and as Secretary General of a Parliamentary group at the French National Assembly.  A member of SFWA and Codex Writers, his short fiction has been published in many professional venues, including foreign sales.  He is also a craft article contributor to the SFWA blog, the SFWA Bulletin, and  His debut novel, Always Greener, is out now from Uproar Books, and the sequel, The Rude Eye of Rebellion, comes out in Fall 2020.  He is represented by Marisa Corvisiero at the Corvisiero Literary Agency, and would love to hear from you on Twitter, over at @SpaceLawyerSF!
