There is a Tomorrow Redux

Genre: Fiction

As we look toward the beginning of a new century, new ideas, new perspectives, and new approaches to our society need and deserve careful attention. I know how difficult writing can be, and I commend you for the time and effort you have invested in your book. Former Vice President, Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Al Gore In these times we need hope and vision more than anything else. This is a book that offers both. It is a story about John, who time travels one hundred years into the future to witness some of the positive changes that will occur in society and the world. At heart, the tale is a sweet, spiritual, environmental story, but it’s real power is the author’s ability to involve the reader’s imagination in the exploration of the world as it could evolve. “There is a Tomorrow” made me think about what it will take to break out of our selfish, me-first, consumer and greed-oriented society, and about how we can replace it with a more spiritual, creative, Earth-sensitive and community-oriented future. In visualization, one of the first rules involves creating an ideal future scene, as realistic and believable in your minds eye as possible. David Nazar’s prose does just that, providing a wealth of details that leaves just enough space for the reader’s imagination to spark them into life. I believe the message in this book is a tremendous gift to the planet, a tool that can act as a catalyst to bring about positive social change. With so much focus on the problems of our present, it is a joy and a relief to be taken by the hand and shown an alternative vision of society, where humanity’s best instincts rise to the occasion. The telling and retelling of such stories may be the first step in achieving that reality. Sophia Zilla

And now he's set his sights on Michael Tiranno for reasons birthed in a painful secret past that have scarred both men. Already facing a myriad of problems, Michael once more must rise to the challenge of confronting an all-powerful enemy who is exploiting and ravaging innocents all across the globe and has set nothing less than all of America as its new victim.
