portrait01_med Welcome to my website and thanks for stopping by. I have published eBooks, but they’ve been pulled for re-launch later with accompanying print versions. I have also achieved professional editing status. Check my editing services under the “EDITING” tab. They are the most thorough for the most affordable prices.

Here are writing projects for books that have never been published.

capitolium1_loresCapitolium: #1 The Heart of the One

                    {Under the pseudonym of Dakota Orlando                         See www.DakotaOrlando.com when active in 2019}

First in a Series

The Hunger Games without the games. Where humankind’s inhumanity to humankind is the game in the 28th Century—and where wealth rules poverty! Could this be our future?

 “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”

1984 by George Orwell

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

“I’m so tired of being hungry. To be free to live and enjoy life is almost beyond my understanding. To have others look at me and see an equal would be a magnificent luxury. But the reality is … starvation is our livelihood, fear is our security, and hopelessness is our dignity. There is no hope … or is there?”

Electra of Bawl Mehr – In the year 665 A.W. (2730 old calendar)

Capitolium: #2 The Keepers of Tyranny

Second in a Series

What if the rich do get richer? What if the poor do get poorer? Where will it all end 700 years from now? It ends in a land called Capitolium … or does it?

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

“A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock [a holding area in a court for the criminally charged] and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men’s lives should not stake their own.”

The Salvaging of Civilization (1921) by H.G. Wells

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

“We are on the cusp. Starvation is no longer our livelihood, fear is no longer our security, and hopelessness is no longer our destiny. Education can be our salvation. Let us go forth and seek it, the tool to throw off the reins of the oppressor.”

Electra of Bawl Mehr – In the year 665 A.W. (2730 old calendar)

“[Justice is …] the heart and spirit of men who resist power.”

Woodrow Wilson

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

“Every state is innocent in its own judgment, yet only the righteous can own justice.”

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

“We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.”

Stephen Hawking

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

“No matter how honest humanity builds its society, the greed of humanity, if allowed to flourish, will find a way to destroy it.”
