Contemporary Fiction


When President North bans unnecessary travel to help control a deadly virus, the nation's tourism industry goes into a tailspin. Digital Darling, the tantalizing hostess of an underground travel show, becomes a persistent critic of the president's policies, and very soon an Internet sensation.

North instructs the National Security Agency to get her off the air, but the task falls to a ruthless agent and the Feds look the other way as the body count rises. Through a long, hot New England summer, Digital Darling, her lover, and their hacker sidekick risk everything to wage a dangerous war of perceptions against the government.

A war that has everyone asking, who is the real patriot here?

Non-Fiction: Social Commentary


"This book reads like a roaring fulminating speech. Richard Roberts' itchy ire is directed at numerous present-day ills—influence peddling and surveillance of our daily lives by the government; politics; the over-medication of old and young; scummy fund-raising scams and insurance that doesn't always insure; the mall addiction of the young; and more. Remembering the '60s, with its flower-powered down-in-the-streets populism, spontaneity and effective action, Roberts laments the way the world has turned and wants Baby Boomers—The "Biggest Generation"— to replant those flowers and provide a little sixties spirit to the currently young...Whatever is grass-roots (indeed grass in all its meanings) appeals to this enlivening ouch-sayer, Roberts admires, and resembles George Carlin whose half-grouchy irony always bears common sense. "If you want to hear the truth," he writes, "listen to blacks. Or comedians. Or even better, black comedians. Or comedian Lewis Black."

Baby Boomer Press logoBaby Boomer Press is dedicated to publishing books about the nation's largest generation—the nearly 80 million Americans born between 1946-1964. While much is made of the diversity of our generation, we are held together by an inner voice—forged by the tumultuous events of the 1960s. As a group we are idealistic, optimistic, global, spiritual and inclusive. We are environmentally aware, independent-minded and share a healthy distrust of large institutions, especially big government.

As we approach the final stage of our lives, it is time to build our generational legacy. To put our competitiveness, can-do attitude and willingness to change things back to work. We represent one of every three voters. We hold every important position of authority. We control the majority of the nation's wealth. When we act as a group, there's just no ignoring us. Today we have real power, not just flower power.

Baby Boomer Press publishes materials that reflect and promote this point of view. We are non-denominational and unaffiliated politically. For more information regarding terms, or to order books directly from the publisher, please write:
