Joule: a young city founded by a faction of America's elite claiming it would become "the spark of a new era of Humanity." Most of the world saw it as a dangerous playhouse for a power-mad oligarchy, but to people like John Nakae it was a chance to escape a life of stagnation and decay. For five years, it was exactly that... Yet, real change proved difficult to grasp. Even as the people around him pursued progress with more fervency than any generation before, nothing had fundamentally changed for him or humanity.

Until one night, under the shadows of that city's shining towers, the new era truly began as a nightmare became flesh.

John nearly meets his end at the clawed hands of that nightmare, but in the aftermath discovers a similar phenomenon has blessed him with the potential to twist a part of reality to his own will. Others like him emerge in the city — as do ever more abominations — and he soon finds himself on the frontline of an investigation into the growing mystery. Not merely to understand, but to control.

About the Author

Connor McGwire is in fact a Software Engineer moonlighting as an author. If you had seen little four-year-old Connor busily working away at this two-page Neopets fanfiction (an entirely innocent endeavor removed from its current connotations), you might have thought him born with all intention to write for a living. However, by the time Connor was sixteen he figured out how to estimate the cost of moving out and chose to have money instead.

The love for storytelling never did die, and while he was spending his professional career wrestling twenty-year-old banking systems and prototype missile test equipment, he pursued small writing endeavors on the side. For a while, that really only meant the Pen-and-Paper RPG campagins he wrote and ran for his friends, but eventually, that lead to the writing of a novel called Metanoia in 2022.

Now that his work has been released to the world, he will return to making money(?).
