Thanks to everyone at agentqueryconnect for helping me with the query letter for this. It received four requests from agents for the full manuscript before ultimately landing at the Portland-based small press Unsolicited Press.

About the Book

​The rock band Saint Fox and the Independence is the key to taking back economic freedom.

​In a near-future London, eccentric revolutionary Janus Jeeves is the leader of the subversive organization the Arcane Society. When he recruits a charismatic drifter named Sam to headline a band that serves as a front for the Society, the group’s soaring popularity draws supporters by the thousands. ​

With the youth of the nation on his side and a biotech weapon that will revolutionize commerce, Jeeves will at last see his plan fulfilled: To reset a corrupt financial system and eliminate the wealth gap—without violence. Or so he believes.

Puppeteered by Jeeves, Sam is more than willing to champion the cause as Saint Fox—the honey-voiced, incendiary idol of the revolution. But before he knows it he’s a wanted criminal, with millions of devoted followers looking to him for their next move.

 

No war is without casualties.

 

The book is speculative fiction, and is available through the publisher, on Amazon in paperback or Kindle, or through your favorite retailer.

 

Best,

Corin

Corin’s debut novel The Rise of Saint Fox and The Independence, about passive warfare by means of digital commerce infiltration and the sweet sweet sounds of the electric guitar, has been released by Unsolicited Press, and is now available in paperback and Kindle from Amazon and other retailers. Reyburn is currently at work on its sequel which takes place in a high-tech agricultural society in a galaxy far far away, and another unrelated novel about a genderqueer tech geek who experiences an accidental spiritual awakening.
