After 26 Years, Virginia Kress is Retiring and the Store is Closing
To My Valued Friends and Customers
It is with both sadness and excitement that as of Saturday, August 31 I am formally announcing my retirement and the closing of The Readers Loft.
These past 26 years have brought so much joy I don’t even know how to properly express it. Not just the books themselves but all the people that have come into my life as a result; customers, authors and co-workers alike. My goal from the beginning was to create a haven from the frantic world we all find ourselves living in. I hope you have found over the years that The Reader’s Loft was a place of refuge and peace for you. From our book clubs to writing circles to poetry readings I hope you have also found nourishment for your mind and soul. I will miss you all!
On a more positive note, Amy will be opening a new bookstore created in her own vision on
Washington Street in downtown Green Bay. While her store Lion’s Mouth will offer the same
basic services as our current store, the setting will be a bit more contemporary. We hope you
will all continue your patronage of our local independent bookstore.
Thank you for your support over the years.
All the best,
Imminent Dawn (Paperback)
Art-school dropout Chandra would do anything to apologize for her role in her wife's coma--including enroll in the first round of human trials for an internet-access brain implant.
At first, the secretive research compound is paradise, the perfect place to distract Chandra from her grief. But as she soon learns, the facility is more prison than resort, with its doctors, support staff, and her fellow patients all bent on hatching plots of their own, no matter how invested they might seem in helping her communicate with her wife.
Making matters worse, a dark wave of uncertainty crashes down on the compound, forcing Chandra to become an unlikely but pivotal player in conspiracies stretching from the highest levels of the North American Union government to the lowest dredges of its shadowy hacking collectives.
To save herself and her wife, Chandra and her newfound friends from the study will have to overcome the scheming of a ruthless tech magnate, the na vet of an advancement-hungry administrative assistant, and the relentless pursuits of an investigative journalist, all of whom are determined to outpace the others in their own quests to resurrect lost love, cover their tracks, and uncover the truth.
A twistedly delightful clockwork of intrigue and suspense, Imminent Dawn is an electrifying sci-fi debut from author r. r. campbell.
