About the Book:
Charles is an expatriated American living in Japan who spots himself in a sex video that has gone viral. Initially, he dismisses it as a fluke. His apprehension fades after a Japanese barmaid is convinced that he was in the clip and enthusiastically accepts his offer to spend the night with him.
His new-found fame wanes when a supervisor at work watches Charles in a job-related video and notices that Charles’ facial expressions momentarily take on those of a different person. After this incident, Charles is convinced that his video “flukes” must be explained.
His journey to discover the truth reveals: a former porno starlet with a “unique” talent; the couple from the viral video wants him to join a secret cult; the CIA is involved somehow; people with blue auras are important; disappearing people complicate things; a Russian gambler at a Korean casino with an agenda; and inter-dimensional reptilian aliens behind it all.
About the Author:
Born and raised on the West Coast of the United States. Has spent the past couple of decades in Asia. Has written five novels and dozens of stories.
Clip was not written with a genre in mind. It is a "what if" story set in the strange world of post 9-11. It has a vague sense of a person waking up and realizing he has been transformed into something else, but he can't be bothered with such trivialities. I hope you enjoy the journey down the rabbit hole.
