When Cyber Worlds Become "Real" Life: Glitched Published by Outskirts Press

Lincoln, AR, November 24, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Glitched: Reality Bytes by Arleen Walker. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the contemporary fantasy and fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/glitched-realitybytes was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

In Farmville, she had to come to grips with the fact that she wasn't dreaming, but really was on her self created farm. In Frontierville, she had to prepare herself for a wedding to a near stranger and learn how to live off the land. In Mafia Wars, she had to figure out how to keep from being assassinated in her own multi-million dollar casino and get out of the games.

Still, for twenty-five year old Judeanne Stevenson, it was less work than taking care of her crippled mother, putting up with Wendy, her bossy little sister, or running the bookstore that was just a trophy business for its wealthy owners. The cyber reality of Judeanne’s Zynga games had become her “real” life.

The night she felt the tug on her mouse hand, then the pull on her forearm from somewhere inside the glimmering monitor in front of her, she had first thought it was a trick Wendy had somehow figured out how to play on her to get her to slow down and enjoy life. But then, as she awoke in the bright landscape of Farmville, she knew her life would never be the same. How could she escape this world and return to her real life?

Glitched-Reality Bytes is a contemporary cyber fantasy guaranteed to please and delight the millions of Zynga gamesters who have ever left-clicked their way into or out of a virtual game reality. To all those who have farms, homesteads, and mafiosa, this is a step into a real page turner of adventure.

142 pages in length, Glitched: Reality Bytes is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the contemporary fantasy and fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Glitched meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $10.95.

Additionally, Glitched can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
