About the Book:

Charles is an expatriated American living in Japan who spots himself in a sex video that has gone viral. Initially, he dismisses it as a fluke. His apprehension fades after a Japanese barmaid is convinced that he was in the clip and enthusiastically accepts his offer to spend the night with him. His new-found fame wanes when a supervisor at work watches Charles in a job-related video and notices that Charles’ facial expressions momentarily take on those of a different person. After this incident, Charles is convinced that his video “flukes” must be explained. His journey to discover the truth reveals: a former porno starlet with a “unique” talent; the couple from the viral video wants him to join a secret cult; the CIA is involved somehow; people with blue auras are important; disappearing people complicate things; a Russian gambler at a Korean casino with an agenda; and inter-dimensional reptilian aliens behind it all.

About the Author:

Born and raised on the West Coast of the United States. Has spent the past couple of decades in Asia. Has written five novels and dozens of stories.

Author's Note:

Clip was not written with a genre in mind. It is a "what if" story set in the strange world of post 9-11. It has a vague sense of a person waking up and realizing he has been transformed into something else, but he can't be bothered with such trivialities. I hope you enjoy the journey down the rabbit hole.
