Message from JMS:
[quote]J. Michael Straczynski - Hang with JMS

We are now exactly 3 months from publication of my new novel THE GLASS BOX. Fun fact: if everyone on this feed pre-ordered a copy, it would debut on the NY Times Best-Seller List. I think that would be lovely. Shall we make some noise?

From the  listing:
THE GLASS BOX is a hard-hitting, fast-paced sci-fi novel about the choices we make and the ramifications we face.
Riley Diaz was born to fight. When she is sent to an American Renewal Center for reeducation, Riley declares a one-woman war against the ARC program's bag of dirty tricks designed to break down dissidents.
Acclaimed creator @becomingsupermanjms takes readers on a mesmerizing journey inspired by pressing contemporary issues, including our right to protest and the threats designed to undermine that right. Told with drama and heart, THE GLASS BOX is a moving story that features a colorful and often eccentric cast of characters readers will fall in love with.
