So you got, you know, a device for reading readily-available, affordably-priced digital stories, huh? You got a Kindle/Nook/Kobo/iPad(shudder)/Android tablet?
… and you’re looking for some ideas on how to fill it up? Some fun reads to get you through these unseasonably wet days?
Well… it just so happens…
The cameras are on and the gloves are off in this battle of the sexes in space.
Say hello to Robin and Joe—contestants in 2034’s “Space Games,” a high-stakes reality TV show from Hollywood producer Sheldon J. Zimmer that is set aboard next-generation space station, ISS 2. The winner takes home a multimillion-dollar jackpot and a chance at stardom, while the loser faces the ultimate in public humiliation. Only former NASA astronaut Vince, acting as the station’s commander and the games’ sole referee, can separate sexy spitfire and martial artist, Robin Miller, from her brutal opponent, “Big Joe” O’Donnell, as the pair compete inside the cramped zero-g environs. Watched by millions of people back on Earth, the reality show rapidly degenerates into a deadly spectacle.
Space Games is a compelling story and a biting satire about reality television: those who make and participate in it – and those who watch it.

I used to matter… but now I’m just a girl in a ghetto, a statistic of the Non-Compliance Sector.
Shea Kelly had a brilliant career in technology, but after refusing to implant an invasive government device in her body she was sent to a modern day reservation: a Non-Compliance Sector, a lawless community run by thugs and organized crime. She’s made a life for herself as a resourceful barkeep, and hacks for goods on the black market with her best friend Wynne, a computer genius and part-time stripper. Life is pretty quiet under the reigning Boss, apart from run-ins with his right hand man, the mighty Quinn: until Danny Rose threatens to take over the sector. Pushed to the edge, Shea decides to fight back …
“…Non-Compliance: The Sector is a carefully crafted work of original fiction that offers solid entertainment from first page to last and never disappoints!” Midwest Book Review
“…Intriguing and fast paced, Non-Compliance: The Sector by Paige Daniels is a novel that can be quickly summed up in one word: awesome!” Readers’ Favorite
