The Masquerade Ball

Book 3 of Masks Series
To be released!

Stay tuned for the final installment of my Masks Series, book #3 of my Silicon Valley novels! Slated for release sometime in 2020. (sorry, no final date yet)
After Caryssa Flynn and two of her girlfriends narrowingly escape a mass shooting in a trendy coffee shop overlooking the sleepy San Francisco Bay, Caryssa feels compelled to visit her beloved former stomping grounds of beautiful Silicon Valley. That amazing tech-hub capital of the world that had pulled her away from her loving family on the east coast, twenty-four years ago.
A gripping tale of heartbreaking recognition of the geopolitical connection to her much loved high-tech career, and America’s forever wars and VC funding spilling into our nation’s internal violence today. Could it be that America has become a multi-trillion-dollar corporate brand, a violent brand image at that?
The Masquerade Ball takes the reader back and forth in the timeline, a journey through Caryssa’s former international business trips and her once apolitical point of view while she sold and marketed computer electronics and internetworking gear to foreign markets. We go to the 1990’s China and Israel, back to the current San Francisco Bay Area and Caryssa’s post-corporate world. T.L. Mumley brilliantly captures a compelling reason for “uncooling” our nation’s worship of military technology and war while “demarketing” the deceiving narrative of “national security” by breaking the media trance of our TV and internet-addicted age.
