About the book: Mari Shu, a factory drudge in the year 4000-something, must choose how to protect her sisters, her purity, and her own conscience in a bleak futuristic society that’s been polluted by smog, rampant commercialism, tacky jumpsuits, sexual perversions, unjust socioeconomics, interstellar travel, and inconsistent use of the Oxford comma.

What other authors and critics are saying about THE ADVENTURES OF MARI SHU…

“Of all the books out there, THE ADVENTURES OF MARI SHU is one of them!” Gini Koch, author of the bestselling Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt series, which includes Alien in the House, Best Futuristic Romance of 2013 from the RT Book Reviews Reviewer’s Choice Awards

“I laughed! I cried!…When I was asked to write this blurb. I’m sure THE ADVENTURES OF MARI SHU is a great read. I mean, really, how bad *could* it be? But seriously, knowing Jody, it’s hysterical.” award-winning author Cathy Pegau, who knows Jody.

“This book contains many words in varied order. These words make sentences, mostly. Many people are pleased by the word clumps contained herein, and have paid actual money for them.  I have been too busy on a yacht with J.K. Rowling to read this book, but I’m told that Jody Wallace is pretty good at spelling. Can I get my $20 now?” — Lucy Woodhull, author of the funny sci-fi romance RAGNAR AND JULIET, which also features sentences, mostly.

“I haven’t read THE ADVENTURES OF MARI SHU, but I’m sure it’s great, based on the cover.” — The Anonymous Cover Designer

“I haven’t been so excited about a book coming out since… mine! And we all know MINE is going to be at least #10 on Amazon’s science fiction romance/spaceships/military/food/fruit/strawberry/fresh list!” — Sheryl Nantus, author of the “Tales from the Edge” series

“Not enough cats.” — Meankitty, world famous online purrrsonality

“THE ADVENTURES OF MARI SHU is so hysterically funny, raunchy, and shocking that I lost control of all my bodily functions.” — P.F. Ward (KRAZY FOR KAIJU), yet another indie author you’ve never heard of (which essentially makes this blurb completely useless, but whatevs).

“THE ADVENTURES OF MARI SHU was pretty okay, and I would have said that even without the bribe! Thanks, Jody!” — Eilis Flynn, editor and author of “Get It Done NOW or Die!” the memoirs of a managing editor in magazine-land during a time of deadlines

“Mom? What is this thing on my Kindle, Mom? I don’t think it’s for kids.” — Small Wallace, encountering the downsides of “automatic file downloads” on one’s reading device

“The Adventures of Mari Shu go together like warp plasma and peanut butter…with smog!” — KS Augustin, author of reasonably well-regarded SFR and fantasy such as Balance of Terror and The Check Your Luck Agency, both of which in no way resemble The Adventures of Mari Shu but you should totally trust this blurb anyway because blurbs are meant to be believed without question.

“The Adventures of Mari Shu is too much fun to put down but the officer who pulled me over said I can’t drive while reading an eBook.” — Laurie Prestia, author of Lorenzo Knits A Tomato (blog) and former Burlesque dancer and owner of Lima Pop Shoppe (Artfire)

“The Adventures of Mari Shu is the best book I’ve ever, never read. Plus, the author said she validates parking.” — Ivan Audi, not a penname made up by Laurie Prestia

“The Adventures of Mari Shu is more fun than a roller coaster! They make me hurl but this book is guaranteed Hurl Free.” — N. Ailsalon, a real person and not a pretend person that Jody asked Laurie Prestia to come up with to add more blurbs to the list

“The Adventures of Mari Shu…Jody Wallace has hit her career high, poor thing.” — Hannah Flipwhistle, a neighbor of Laurie Prestia

“I’ve never read anything like it! Actually, I didn’t read The Adventures of Mari Shu but hats off to Jody Wallace for scoring this bitchin’ review!” — Chaz Biffknocker, brother-in-law of Hannah Flipwhistle, a neighbor of Laurie Prestia

“I never expected to enjoy The Adventures of Mari Shu as much as I enjoy feeding my 18 cats. Kudos to Jody Wallace!” — Palmer Gud, penname of world famous author who isn’t Laurie Prestia

“That’s hysterical.” — Author Misa Buckley, when commenting on another author’s blurb for MARI SHU


Mari Shu’s adventures will be published in separate volumes of 35K-100billionK apiece. Why publish them separately instead of all in one 1,000,000 word plus volume? Because people would get tired of clicking back to the beginning over and over and over in order to follow all the threads and choices to their delicious conclusions! Chopped into manageable chunks, hopefully readers won’t miss a single, wacked-out word.

Warning: Books are spoofs and contain offensive material. Buttloads and boatloads of offensive, vulgar, disrespectful, and possibly triggering material. Sexual, political, economic, racial, physical, typographical, religious—really, trying to hit all the big ones.
