The book “Touching Distance” is at a discount

My book Touching Distance is available here at a discount between 5th June and 12th June.

A description of the book – we are closer to those further away than to those nearer to us.

A story about communication in the 21st Century. Is Social Media making us unsociable. Are all our heads in The Cloud?

The usage of language fascinates me and I am continually amazed at how many new words/acronyms/initialisms are cropping up in everyday life. There are so many ways for people to stay socially connected and it can become overwhelming at times especially when our comfort zones about sharing information are rapidly reducing.

Although communication has never been easier, it seems we are always trying to communicate with people who are far away to the detriment of those who are near by.

The hero of this story is at the centre of everyone else’s communications whether she wants to be or not. At work, on the bus, or at home, the people who are closest to her are in communication with people further away. She cherishes a conversation on the bus and realises how difficult it is to remove technology from our lives.
