Fluence is published

Fluence is published today, 26 June, and available online in paperback and as an e-book from major retailers.

There’s lots of information on my website, where you can browse the first few chapters, take the Fluence Test and read the blurb.

The first review through the door is from Celia Wade-Brown, the Mayor of Wellington in New Zealand.

“Oram offers a glimpse into a Dystopian London where social media use moves from mild addiction to a visceral quest for survival, where commodification of experience and shallow responses sound warning bells for our species’ continuance. Current debate about benefits and who’s entitled to support reach bitter depths . Fluence’s mix of characters tumble today’s class system and focus on appearance into a rat race where empathy is rare and no-one knows who is friend or foe, even within their own family. A fast-paced and eerily visual read.”

So… imagine a dystopian world: where you are defined by algorithms; where corporations are in control of the government; and where your social media influence determines where you can live. Imagine the dystopian world of Fluence.
