NEW YORK, July 2016 — Easley, SC resident, John E. Parnell, is delighted to announce the release of his fantastic novel, “The Genesis of Quave” which is already hitting the bookstores everywhere. The all-new book, the first of an anticipated trilogy, “The Genesis of Quave” tells the story of a new and hyper-advanced virus (a Quasi-Autonomous Viral Entity) which is used experimentally by a politically-motivated hacker group, who target a bank.

John, the author, is a retired teacher who holds teaching certification in physics, chemistry, biology, general science, mathematics, and business. He published his first book — “Computer Science Advanced Placement Guidebook,” in 1985, after which he wrote for McGraw-Hill, Pearson Education, and others.  With great enthusiasm and love for stories, he meticulously wrote the fascinating novel which features thrilling suspense that is sure to delight readers.

John provides a summary of “The Genesis of Quave” and how readers will fall under its spell:

The story of the titular ‘Quave’ concerns a group of politically motivated hackers work out of a converted apartment in Queens, New York, and after failing to hack a bank with a traditional virus, decide to create something entirely new. The result is a virus which becomes more than just a virus – a virus that becomes its functioning entity.

“Over the course of the novel, Quave grows stronger. It has the potential to solve global warming, cure cancer, but it has equal potential to destroy mankind. The group of hackers must decide whether to let Quave continue to run free or destroy their creation. Which leads to another, more terrifying, question – at this point, do they even have the ability to destroy it?” stated John.

“The Genesis of Quave” is available in print format (perfect bound – both “normal” and large print editions, and hardbound), as well as audiobook and ebook, through online stores and brick-and-mortar retailers.

The days of ethnic minorities being labelled as an Latino-American, African-American or Asian-American may soon come to an end following the launch of the social movement, Hyphened-Nation.

There is no doubt that hyphenation creates separation and many problems for individuals placed in these categories. In fact, it was former American President, Theodore Roosevelt, who said: “A Hyphenated American is not an American at all.” But Hyphened -Nation is on a mission to change all that.

The movement was founded by Nicole Draffen and was inspired by her travels overseas. She said: “Living abroad was an eye opening experience. I grew to understand certain aspects of American culture better, the longer I lived overseas. The differences were startling, and lead me on a journey to understand why the United States is one of the only, if not the only country, that hyphenates its citizens by ethnicity before nationality.”

Several movements have been formed advocating for equality of different minority groups. But Hyphened-Nation is one of the few social movements fighting for equality for all ethnic minorities in America. Launched on April 20, 2016, support for the movement is growing rapidly. To date Hyphened- Nation’s Instagram page has more than 8,329 followers and 5226 Twitter followers.

Members of Hyphened-Nations are encouraged not to check the box on applications that ask for their ethnicity, wear a unique wristband and contact their state representative to support the efforts to end ethnic minorities from being miscategorized as Hyphenated Americans.

The movement also inspired the book, Hyphened-Nation: Don’t Check the Box. This dynamic book is about the author’s insights while living in the UK and her experience of being treated as an American, rather than as a hyphenated one. It also focuses on ways the U.S. and Europe differ culturally via media, and how a bridge might be created.

Draffen writes in her book: “The hyphenation of your nationality minimizes your standing in the nation. The hyphen might as well act as a minus sign. Both are represented by the same symbol, and have the same consequences. Just as a minus “takes away” a numerical value, its counterpart hyphen lessens the value of your nationality.”

Hyphened-Nation: Don’t Check the Box is available in Kindle format on for a retail price of $3.99. To buy the book, click here.
