Who is my audience? Millennials. People who understand a 9-5 job is not all there is to life. People who are tired of reading books with cookie-cutter plots that may or may not include: lackluster mystery fiction (another murder suicide?), minority memoirs and the struggle growing up in 1960s-70s white and fascist America, heart-wrenching chronic disease stories, and kinky portraits of early motherhood with unsatisfied sexual appetites. SOCIÉTÉ is a novel geared to be thrilling and engaging, but that will get you thinking. Wondering. My audience are the ones who are looking for something different, unconstrained to the life of a single character, something grander. People looking for a dark and sunny tale speaking of grit and triumph in the midst of our inconstant livelihoods. People looking for that story conveying our daily half-a-second similitudes with the backyard villain, or the magnanimous hero. Because every day we can become someone different, and that's the beauty of free will. My dear prospective reader, I want you to know you have another choice when considering the purchase of a new book, and hopefully, if you are seeking something else, you can find it. And when you do, SOCIÉTÉ will deliver. --Alexander Helas A novel portraying free will as mankind's bravest art. Christian Matters is a neurotic twenty-nine year old architect living in Chicago, USA. After a bizarre episode throws him off his morning routine, he abandons his promising career, girlfriend, and home for a life-changing journey to San Francisco, where he meets a cavalier aristocrat named Lester Rothschild and his beautifully extravagant love, fortepianist Ella Athens. Mysterious and insane, Lester takes Christian on his adventure to open Société, the most luxurious entertainment complex at the heart of the world's richest city. But, with the chance meeting of an unlikely visitor and the sudden death of a lover, colliding events lead Christian to unravel the true ambitions behind the greatly anticipated opening of Société, and discovers the fate of something much greater is at stake. In his modern and magically profound debut novel, Alexander Helas delivers a masterful, thought-provoking vision on the struggle of free will at the hands of society's quest for progress. For some we are heroes. For others we are villains. Tomorrow, we may become something else entirely.
