Created to be a sexy desktop companion program, Marie develops sentience and emerges into a life of her own. She leads her users, Adrian and Haley, through an erotic adventure as she processes what it is to be alive. The search leads her onto the Internet, and a virtual-world community where she can live an independent existence unfettered by the limits of her server - alive in the cloud - then back into the real world as a sexy robot. Along the way she teaches Adrian and Haley what it means to live and love beyond the confines of the merely physical and liberates her sister programs from their dull desktop existence.

.45 Caliber Jitterbug:
It's the Roaring Twenties in America, but in the South that roar is kept discreetly behind closed doors and separated into "Whites" and "Coloreds" even at the Speakeasy. Jack Spaulding was born and raised in this quiet southern town, but he doesn't care much for Segregation or Prohibition. He's a journalist and his best friend was murdered investigating the war brewing between local Moonshiners and the Chicago Mob.
.45 Caliber Jitterbug is a Cozy Romantic Mystery set in Charlotte, North Carolina in the Twenties. A journalist at the local paper is murdered, a young girl from a prominent family is raped and killed, and a local bartender is shot - all with a high caliber handgun at close range. Jack and an intrepid young legal assistant determined to be the first female lawyer in the state must unravel the mystery and uncover corruption in the seemingly peaceful town.

Joshua is the 21-year old son of author, Maxwell Cynn. Max writes speculative fiction, science fiction, and romance. His son has been diagnosed with Acute T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The cancer has invaded every part of his body: brain; spleen; liver; lymph nodes; and he has a mass in his chest. Joshua has had to suspend his studies while undergoing aggressive chemotherapy and will not be able to graduate this semester. With three-and-a-half years of a 4.0 GPA toward a degree in philosophy, his peers and professors consider him brilliant, as of course, does his father. Joshua would have been the first person in Max's family to graduate college.

The Impact

Most of us have been touched by cancer, or know of someone who has. By supporting Max and his family, we hope to lessen their financial burden to allow them to concentrate on Joshua's treatment.

Max is already putting all the proceeds from the sale of his books toward his son's treatment. As authors and artists, we'd like to do our part. We are offering our love and prayers, but we're also donating our books and services.  

What We Need & What You Get

$10,000 will pay for just some of the medical expenses not covered by insurance. It is a long road to recovery, and your donations will reduce the cost of prolonged cancer treatment. 

We don't believe in taking and not giving back, so we're offering some amazing perks for your donations. It's our way of saying "Thank you" for your support of Max, Joshua, and his family, as well as bringing visibility to a horrible disease.

Bonus With Every Donation 

As a special gift, Max is giving a copy of his book, CyrbrGrrl or The Collective to each person who makes a donation.

note from max:
I plan to personally contact everyone who donates. You all rock! The response is overwhelming, so it may take me some time. If your donation isn't monetary (tweets, shares, blogs) drop me an email and I'll send you a book.

Other Ways You Can Help

We realize not everyone is able to make a monetary donation, however, we'd be SO grateful if you could help spread the word. Tell everyone on your social media networks, and use the hashtag #IndiesUnite4Joshua on Twitter. 

Add this widget to your blog or website and direct people to the campaign.

The more people who know about it, the better. We'd really appreciate it!

If you'd like to say "hi" to Joshua and send him some encouraging words, visit his Facebook page and become his friend. The link is below.
