Exciting news, readers: 1000 Faces - my Black Mirror-esque entry into the Nerdist Sci-Fi Contest - has been chosen as the monthly pick for the Break the Bechdel with Strong Female Characters Syndicate. This is a real honour and I’m so delighted to share with you the syndicate’s reason for picking 1000 Faces:
In 1000 Faces, J. Graham-Jones has captured one of the most insidious fears that waits below the surface of almost every modern interaction- privacy. Kara, the protagonist, is a woman who seems to wear a mask to keep out those around her as well as all those who read her story. Jones’ voice is crisp and mysterious, masterfully easing us into this very possible future through the eyes of a woman we can’t wait to see come into her own.
The support of the syndicate has pushed 1000 Faces into 5th place in the Nerdist contest. We’re now within 16 readers of the top 3 and victory!
More importantly, don’t forget to preorder. There are only 10 days left in the contest, and your preorder could be the difference between Kara Finch hiding behind a mask forever, or stepping out into the spotlight...
