Humor Fiction Novel "Commune: A Social Experiment" Wins New Apple E-Book Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing

Dayton, OH, December 20, 2015 --( Commune: A Social Experiment by Java Davis receives Medalist Honors in the Humor category of the 2015 New Apple Summer eBook Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

Book Synopsis
Commune is the story of an apple commune and the disparate group of wanderers who end up there. The commune becomes a microcosm of conflicts: dedicated vs. slacking, honest vs. traitorous, hopeful vs. cynical, and most importantly, connected vs. disconnected. Is one woman's vision enough to carry the apple farm to a comfortable prosperity? In this piece of ensemble fiction, the diverse cast of characters includes Momo, the founder of the commune and legal owner; Maia, a former business school roommate, who has something to hide; Linda, another college roommate, who thinks a commune would be a fun vacation; Bobby and Baz, fraternal twins who have a differing view of farming; Dan, the supplies delivery man, who loves the parade of women who come and go at the commune; Dulcie, a bitter, displaced chef; Kick, a self-styled Buddhist; and many others. The future of the commune often hangs by a thread. Who can Momo count on for help when the going gets rough?
