The-Next-Day-Tour-Banner Enjoy Happy Geek Media's Debut of The Next Day

I don't launch into a book tour, or a book review cold, and this is no exception. When I was contacted by Amberr Meadows to participate in some book tours for her, I said "Sign me up! Anytime, anywhere." You see, Amberr is THE very first person I met when I started writing and getting involved in social media, and she has been the most generous and kindest woman in the world. She helped me when I hadn't clue one as to what I was doing. She's laughed with me over silly eCards and we've comforted one another when things weren't so great. She's a terrific inspiration for me and others around me, like Andi-roo and Aaron Brinker. We've all been doing this "writing and social media-izing" thing for quite a while and Amberr is a complete pro and one of the best people I know!

This book, "The Next Day" is an intriguing and very satisfying read. I have not finished it yet, but Mr. Milt Mays, the author has written a fine suspense-thriller and his characters have very real human foibles. One of the things I love about his style of writing, along with his clarity, is the rather wry outlook that he attributes to Alex, his protagonist. Alex could be "everyman", if everyman happened to be working with viral codes and on the cutting edge of weaponization of some of these very nasty bugs that the characters work with in the course of the book. 

Given our recent Ebola scare, and the idea of rogue-states, or individuals within these rogue-states getting their hands on and using either weaponized, or just plain, garden-variety viruses and bugs is rather hair-raising and Mr. Mays' approach is far different than a book like "The Andromeda Strain". I recommend this book highly; it is a thoughtful discursive into what could very possibly happen in the near-future and is well-thought out and beautifully written. I'm glad to be a part of this and would read any of his books in the future! Amberr, my thanks and love to you, as well! I'm happy that I could participate in the fun!



The Next Day by: Milt Mays
Genres: Thriller, Paranormal, sci-fi
395 Pages
Release date: November 10, 2014

***** Top secret bio-warfare after 9/11 changes an American geneticist and an Iraqi jihadist into the next evolution of man, one evil and one good, and their end game will decide the fate of the human race. Alex Smith, an adventure seeking American geneticist, remembers 9/11 with crystal clarity. A girlfriend was incinerated at the Twin Towers at the same time he was infected by a lethal virus he genetically modified in an illegal, U.S. bio-warfare facility in the Amazon jungle. Then he changes, physically and psychologically, into a creature he hates and must learn to control before he loses his work, his new love, and his life and country. Jabril El Fahd’s Iraqi mother, a nurse, dies in his arms, killed by the American embargo. His dreams of being a doctor are consumed in the fires of revenge and hate. He becomes a jihadist, Osama bin Laden’s right-hand man, and comes up with a plan to not just cripple, but destroy the United States. Infecting himself with a deadly virus to wipe out the American infidels, he changes into a monstrous creature he loves, and becomes more powerful with every hateful and lustful thought. Nothing stands in his way. Nothing except Alex.

I love you, and thank you for the kind words and helping spread the word about Milt's new book. You are a jewel among the rocks, and I'm so glad to know you.

Amberr, I would go to the sun and back for you! You took a chance on me when I was probably at my worst and I am so proud to be a part of this endeavor. I thoroughly enjoy doing this and bringing the best possible "product" to the public on your behalf; it is truly a labor of love! I'm so glad we met and I count our friendship as a highlight of my life!

Milt Mays said...

Thanks for your wonderful and thoughtful post and promo of my book. You and Amberr are great people to work with. Keep up the great stuff.

Thank you, Mr. Mays, for allowing me to participate in something that is clearly a well-written book and of fine quality! I don't want to make a pun, because it is after all the lowest form of humor, and also, I am not an inherently funny person, but you had me hooked when you mentioned "fly-fishing". Living here in Florida, I have fished some of the finest waters in the world, I believe and have enjoyed deep-sea, salt-water and fresh-water fishing immensely, although, I am a rather lame caster, when it come to fly-fishing, which is probably akin to mastering the viola. We really don't master it, we just learn to minimize or hide the flaws and bring out that which we are best at!

Wonderful writing and congratulations on the publication of a superb book! ~ Mary
