The winner of the Touch of Fate book giveaway is Judy Cox, who was of the opinion that in the year 2450, we would stop hating one another, try to do good things, and the government would recognize the need for equality for all people.
I want to thank everyone who entered my contest, or who just visited my website over the weekend. For those of you who are still interested in reading Touch of Fate, Amazon.com still has the kindle for $0.99 — I honsetly have no idea how long that will last.
And though all of you made it difficult to pick and choose, here are a few of my favorite predictions of what the world will be like in 2450:
“Hopefully by then we’ll have figured out a way to live sustainably!” — Melissa (I hope we figure it out a lot sooner than 2450!)
“think that by 2450, at least one compatible, habitable planet will have been discovered and a colony ship will be on its way if not already landed and settling in.” — GoodyScrivener (And may I add that I volunteer?)
“What I do hope is that one day everyone is going to be treated equally no more gender/love/racial lines drawn in the sand.” — Drea Becraft (This seems to be a popular sentiment. My heart hopes right along with you, although my brain wonders if there won’t always be some new way to divide humans into groups.)
“I would think that there would be robots to do housework.” — June M. (You should meet my robots — Chase, our vacuum cleaner, is a cute little Roomba that bounces off the walls as it cleans. Max, our lawn mower, is a Robomower RL1000 who uses a buried wire to find the edge of our lawn. I want a robot to clean the bathroom, but my husband, who’s really into robotics, thinks it would be exceptionally difficult to design. Ah well.)
“I think everything will be just like the Jetsons!!!” — mommy_to_7 (I’ll take Rosie!)
I very much hope some of the more dire predictions don’t come true, but of course, my own imagination took me to the dystopian world I present in The Immortality Virus.
