THE BOOK: Electric Love
PUBLISHED IN: May 2016
THE AUTHOR: Philip Palios
THE PUBLISHER: Philthy Creative
SUMMARY: After years of living amidst the fog of addiction, Jordan Santarelli is cut off by his dealer and on the run over a past due debt. As he emerges into sobriety, he chooses to fight the overwhelming injustices that he had previously turned away from. Jordan believes the only way to spark action among the uninspired is to create a significant disruption. Impatient and angry, he attempts to shut down the Internet to force social change. Will he succeed?
THE BACK STORY: This is my debut novel and was inspired by a question I had on my mind at the time I began writing it: What if someone turned off the Internet? This question, combined with my concern for the direction our society is heading, produced Electric Love.
WHY THIS TITLE: I was listening to that song Tainted Love and thought it would be a good title, then I shuffled it and adapted it and thought about what I was writing, Electric Love came to the surface and stuck.
WHY SOMEONE WOULD WANT TO READ IT: If they too often wonder what would happen should the Internet fail us. If they wander the streets of their life and question why society is on a path to self-destruction and what they might do to change the direction. If they enjoy a good story.
