A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
From Paul A. Moscarella:
Machinia, my book about the future, began life as a high school English assignment written on an Olivetti typewriter back in 1985. Getting from there to publication took time, effort, numerous manuscript rejections, and a lot of resilience. It also took a lot of computers! The original manuscript was typed on a Commodore 64 home computer whose memory limit determined the size of each chapter. Only the upgrade to an IBM PC opened the gates to editorial freedom and Machinia broke out. The novel has gone through about ten computers in 30 years finding its final home on an Apple MacBook Air. Storage was about the same: floppy disks, USB thumb drives, and finally the Cloud. It has been a labor of love that is finally having its true freedom, in the hands of readers.
Machinia is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indigo, Walmart, and directly from my publisher Pandamonium Publishing House (Signed copies can be purchased from Pandamonium). Many independent booksellers also carry the novel.
*Orders for Canada can also go through Amazon.ca and Indigo Books
