Sleep State Interrupt (The BetterWorld Trilogy, Vol. 1)
T. C. Weber, author

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

In Sleep State Interrupt, a giant media corporation has taken over the Internet, created an addictive virtual reality called BetterWorld, and controls nearly all information. Politicians do their bidding and a brainwashed humanity serves a privileged few. Waylee Freid, an unemployed Baltimore journalist with ever-worsening bipolar disorder, is the only hope for a brighter future. She and her countercultural friends bust a notorious teenage hacker out of jail and sneak into a closed presidential fundraiser at the Smithsonian castle, where they hope to record incriminating admissions that will wake up the world. Hunted by Homeland Security, Waylee and her friends must reach a sufficient audience by broadcasting their video during the Super Bowl. But to do so, they'll have to break into one of the most secure facilities ever built.
Reviews
Carolivia Herron, host of Epic City on WOWD-LP 94.3 FM and award-winning literat

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Sleep State Interrupt. A fast paced tale ... with a moral perspective. The digital game addict, Kiyoko, is a fictional masterpiece."

John DeDakis, former White House correspondent, former editor for CNN's "The Sit

"Journalism is changing at warp speed. In Sleep State Interrupt, T. C. Weber gives us a glimpse into what covering politics might be like in the future.  But as you'll see, even as technology changes, human nature doesn't. And that makes for a thoroughly enticing tale."

Literary Titan

"The premise of this story is like Mission Impossible meets the Avengers, but smarter in its portrayal of a dystopian world... Targeted advertising, subliminal influencing, endless privacy violations - all this is already unsettling. Weber takes this concept and pushes it to a terrifyingly believable level... Waylee's character was a masterpiece."

Sherri Woosley, author of Walking Through Fire

"In Sleep State Interrupt, Waylee and her radical friends must run, hack, and cosplay to fight a terrifying concentration of power and cronyism. Readers will hold tight through Waylee's roller coaster states and cheer her on."

T. Eric Bakutis, author of Supremacy's Shadow and Tales of the Five Provinces

"Sleep State Interrupt is near-future cyberpunk done right, featuring a diverse cast in a disturbingly plausible future. In a world where corporate, political, and media interests are aligned, a few courageous hackers risk their lives to change the broken system."

Zeke Teflon, author of Free Radicals

"Exceptionally well written, Sleep State Interrupt is a gritty, darkly humorous techno-thriller with flawed, believable characters, a taut, compelling plot, and a lot to say about the present-day USA. Highly recommended."
