Nobody really cares.
Jason, like everyone else, lives in a fantasy facilitated by computer glasses that project images right over the parts of the world he doesn’t like. With a sports scholarship and an amazing new girlfriend, he leads his college team from one victory to another. As long as they ignore the constant barrage of terrible news, their lives would turn out to be perfect.
Until the government discovers his father’s secret. Until his artificially perfect world comes crashing down.
Will Jason and his allies survive the manhunt long enough to finish his father’s work – to commit theocracide and set the world right?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I write in many genres. My next book is high fantasy. My latest book, The Actuator: Fractured Earth, is actually a multi-genre setting where the characters move between genres. (I know it sounds strange, but it works in the story.) Theocracide, though, is a dystopian sci-fi. And if I am forced to choose one genre I love above all, it is sci-fi. Theocracide is different in that it’s very literary. So it’s like Vonnegut (Slaughterhouse 5) or Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451). It deals with a lot of relevant social issues, despite being set in the future.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write what you love and don’t stop. If you try to write for other people or to catch a trend, it will sound inauthentic. As an art, writing only works if you are expressing your own feelings and ideas. There will always be a million reasons to quit. However, you only have to let one of them sway you to end your progress. An author isn’t somebody who once wrote a book and stopped. You can’t make a masterpiece the first time.
Moving often as a youth, James Wymore’s family finally settled in the desert paradise of Utah.
He spent a couple years in Korea contemplating the balance of opposing forces. After learning chaos theory in college he found the ideal environment to continue his studies of the uncontrollable, and became a teacher. He earned a Master’s degree before departing from the academic path to seek the greater freedoms of fiction. Still fascinated by the borders of randomness, he now spends his free time playing and creating games with his friends and children.
Although he patiently awaits the Tallest Writer in History award, James Wymore has won several awards for his short stories.
His early books, rumored to have been written as young as sixteen, are forever locked away. Now a published author, he has realized one of his childhood dreams.
In his dwindling free time, he draws a line of death themed comics called Parting Shots. You can see them along with games he makes and his disorderly blog at http://jameswymore.wordpress.com
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I had several of the ideas in Theocracide long before I started the book. The idea that really made it impossible not to write were the computer glasses. I was waiting in my car when it just came over me all at once. A nearby book was the only paper I had. So I started drawing pictures and writing ideas in the end pages. Once I had that idea, I knew I had to write it.
