My newest novel is finally published and available!!!
HB --] Available on Kindle here...
New Sci Fi thriller explores future possibilities
What if a bizarre and catastrophic twist of fate turns the world upside down literally? Cyd Webster’s new novel HB inspires discussion and evaluation of the possibility of such a future.
The heroine of the story, Annelle Carter, takes the helm in working toward answering the issue of diminishing populations of men in the world. There are many twists and turns as controversies ensue as a result of her creation. Suspicions arise as the androids become more real and abundant. Conflict is displayed among many who can empathize, yet feel it is a sacrilege to go in the direction she is heading in her endeavor.
“This story exposes many problems that result from trends that diminish us as people,” says Webster. The characters are relatable and people from all walks of life can imagine how an idea, such as this, might be developed to answer a societal problem.
Webster hopes to inspire dialogue in readers as they relate to the characters and imagine how they themselves might feel in such situations and circumstances. Readers might be inspired to take action and be motivated in a positive way in real life, where such a novel idea with the android, may never, ever be necessary. “The story involves everyday people who are working out their lives through an unimagined circumstance.”
Coming soon in paperback by AuthorHouse.
I just read your review of Catcher in the Rye. That book has been turning up in so many odd places lately, I mean I've seen people reading it in unexpected places, or stumbling on copies of it in unexpected ways. Like it's suggesting that I should read it again. Anyway, your review convinced me that it's about time I do. So will you be studying in Istanbul for your phd, then? I'm actually hoping to spend a semester in Istanbul next year. We'll see how that goes.
Hey Cagil :) you changed your name! I am fine, still plodding on with my PhD. Am about to finish coursework and move on to taking exams. after which i will start writing the dissertation, which will not be before next year. Where are you planning to apply for your PhD? Anywhere in the US?
u take care too :) nice touching base after so long!
hey Cagil! i am fine, thanks. :)
i am still in the US, and my second semester here is nearing completion. i am not taking any courses in summer, and will be reading some stuff on my own. i can think of a dozen more interesting things to do (travelling would probably be at the top of my list), but unfortunately, i don't have the money to do any of those things :(. well, maybe later.
i watched so many good films recently! have you watched 'i've loved you so long'? i found it amazing! did you have to write a dissertation/thesis for your MA?
i am sure you will get a scholarship to start working on a PhD. what school are you going to there btw?
take care dear pal,
Yes, I am still in USA. well, you are quite the globetrotter, aren't you? ;-)) I do not have plans to visit London soon, but thank you so much. I love having friends from all over the world! You know you can stop by too if you are in this part of the world.
I am desperately trying to complete my assignments and papers for the semester, and all of them are due next week, so other than a haywire sleeping pattern and frequent panic attacks, I am fine! ;-))
MA in film studies? thats very interesting, indeed. you have diverse interests, and i think films are a good way to accommodate these varied interests. it should be an extremely good choice for you. i have taken to watching more films after i came here.
it snows here frequently now (it is snowing as i write this), so i don't get out much either. but i have plans to go visit my brother in pennsylvania once this crazy semester is over.
its nice to get notes from u too, zeytin pal!
am fine, but have begun to realize that graduate studies is no cakewalk!:P
ohio is alrite, but the weather is crazy! it was chilly yesterday, and today its warm and sunny...very unpredictable..
u r in koln?! one of my uncles stays in germany...in munich.

u take care too!

backpacking thru europe...hmm...*sigh* some guys have all the luck!!!:P
guess what?one of the roomies in my temporary accommodation is turkish. hes from istanbul. i boasted i had a turki e-friend,but was lost when he asked which part of turkey u were... i dont even know whether zeytin is ur real name!(i hope u know mine, its right there on the mail id from which the note alert gets sent...)
just finished reading a big fat modern bengali classic, and now ill go back to doing what i like doing best, reading literature and literary theory....and probably have some fun too, learning to cope up in a foreign country...:P
wow that's great-you taking your master's degree and having a part-time job as well...im thinking if i should also pursue my masteral...but im still taking my time working first...doing documentaries and all...im focused now on documenting feature stories on the lives of women and children being abused...i can say that im enjoying it...how about you?are you still into doing short films?
taoism, sufism, and quantum physics?
mamma mia, as the viennese might say!;-)
well, i have picked up a thing or two about sufism too while working as a project fellow in the university, and i must say that it is very very interesting!
and you have read a lot! now let me boggle your mind a little(might be a little presumptuous on my part though, i am awed enough by the quantum physics bit!) by mentioning that there is more than one ramayana!(the one in south india mentions ravana as the good guy!)and then there are the ones like the indonesian one(havnt read it, would love to soemday)...
and something for istanbul?? thats very generous of you, just bring anything you want, as long as you drop by if you are here...
you can mail me too if thats convenient, i chk my shelfari profile only occasionally....
