GIBSONS, BC, CANADA (11/05/15) – People around the globe are tapping into their collective creativity to discover a future that stretches beyond fossil fuels. It is a future that is more vibrant, abundant, resilient – peaceful.
That future fits easily into Oliver Bruce’s pocket. What will he do with it?
Goodnight Sunshine is the story of a disenchanted middle-aged family man who finds an intriguing message about a potentially world-changing invention, leading him to the jungles of Ecuador to seek its existence.
Author Mark Cameron gave up the conventional life for one of exploration. He left his software start-up and loaded his family into a camper van to lead a simpler life—a life that led him on a journey across the United States, and eventually to Ecuador. Now, in his debut novel, Cameron taps into that experience as he speculates on what could happen if a solution to the world’s energy needs fell into the right—or wrong—pocket.
“This is the story of one man’s mid-life awakening,” says Cameron. “In many ways it reflects my own path toward consciousness, though Oliver’s journey takes place over a much shorter timeframe, and with a lot more at stake than my own. The novel covers territory that is familiar to me—both geographically and personally—while exploring potential outcomes that are well beyond the scope of personal experience.”
Goodnight Sunshine is scheduled to be released on November 26, 2015. Cameron will be reading from his novel at the Gibsons Public Library on Saturday, December 5 at 2 PM, and is planning a BC book tour in June, 2016.
