Ms. Never
is a novel about a woman with apocalyptic depression, and a guy who buys human souls using the terms of service in cell-phone contracts. They fall in love and soon have to risk everything to save their family - and reality itself.  This campaign is the best way to preorder Ms. Never at a discount,  to share the credit for its success, and to get some great rewards. The limited edition rewards will be available through November, and I will start shipping physical books in mid-October. 

Ms. Never - What It's About
· What do we give away when we click “I AGREE” to the terms of service in our phones?
· Why are the billionaires squirrelling away all that money for?
· Why do professional sports teams need new stadiums so often?
· And why is everyone so depressed?
Ms. Never takes on - and possibly solves - these mysteries in startling fashion.

Ms. Never - The Story
Farya Navurian seems like an ordinary young woman trying to get ahead in the city, while struggling with lifelong depression. But her depression is anything but ordinary - it has the power to destroy time and space. Growing up the moody daughter of a space-faring hero of The Greater Anointed Imperial Ohioan Commonwealth, Farya annihilated most of that world and its history, leaving behind the husk-like Buckeye State.

One day at a record swap, she meets Bryan, a divorced telecom CEO. More than record collecting, what they share is that they each carry a howling secret. Bryan’s business is a cover for a bigger operation that buys human souls and sells luxury afterlives using shady terms of service in mobile-phone contracts. The two of them fall in love, and as they start a life together, their secrets back them into a corner where they have to come clean - and take drastic steps - to save themselves, and possibly reality itself.
