Why hello there!
Today I have the chance to take a part of a blog tour for M. Black’s book Quantum State. Check out the book deets, an author interview, and even a giveaway below!
About The Book
In a distant future only known as year 61 of MAQS, the quiet utopian district of Cherni contains the perfect system. Everyone is assigned a duty, and life is harmonious directed by the chief quantum computer: MAQS.
But Masha Mikhailov is not convinced of MAQS’ sincerity and is determined to escape. Aided by her best friend Esfir, Masha’s plans take a surprising turn when she is assigned to marry the Keeper, Kazimir.
With both time and options running out, can Masha find her way out… or be forever trapped in the “perfect” life designated for her by the powerful AI?
About M. Black:
M. Black is Ami Blackwelder and writes for the brand ENTER TOMORROW. She is a Montessori teacher, helps the deaf and hard of hearing, is an avid Pescetarian, believer in animal rights and wildlife conservation, and a lover of books. she is the author of the never-before-seen-concept Animal Graph, and dubs herself the ‘Robot Girl’ since many of her stories revolve around robots and A.I. She has a Siamese cat named Lotus from Thailand when she was an educator there and he shows up in all her robot books. She adopted a cat named Ash in the States who also shows up in all of her robot books. She loves reading on Kindle Unlimited and only buys paperback. She enjoys many vegetarian dishes like veggie lasagna and four bean chili. She also likes watching movies, gardening, the beach, and hanging out with friends. Of course most of the time you will find her at home, pounding away at her computer.
1. Where did you get the inspiration for Quantum State?
I saw a show on how a computer is predicting crimes in certain states and thought about what that would mean if a computer started doing that for everything. How much freedom would we give up?
2. Do you have a favorite character or scene?
I love it when our main character realizes the truth of everything and is speaking in the final scenes with the powerful AI.
3. Any interesting projects in the works?
I am finishing up book three in the Electric Gardens series, a four part series. If you love Terminator, Logan’s Run, Maze Runner, Divergent…you will love this series. It is a world where robots control us and Lexi019, a teenager, is just trying to break out of the Compound she has been in for the last twelve years.
4. How long have you been writing and what made you start?
I’ve been writing since Elementary school. First short stories that developed into full length novels. I’ve been publishing since 2009.
5. What gets you in the mood to write?
Do you have a cozy nook or stop by the local coffee shop? Tea and my bed. A good cool breeze;)
6. What was the publishing process like for you?
I love writing. I don’t care for publishing or marketing. There is a lot of time spent I’d rather put toward writing.
7. Just for fun, what’s one thing not many people know about you?
I am mostly vegetarian, except for occasional fish.
