Novus Divide is set in the near future in a city divided by vast wealth and extreme poverty. Jake Marshall is a man in his early thirties who’s pissed off at the world, but no longer cares enough to do anything about it. An unexpected request to find a young boy on the other side of his divided city forces Jake to open his eyes to the things he’d chosen to ignore. A chance meeting with a charismatic guerrilla terrorist by the name of Flint Nassari shows Jake that not everyone is ready to role over and accept what they are given.

We can’t quite guess what genre this is. Because it’s set in the future we’re thinking science fiction?
It loosely falls inside the Dystopian Science Fiction genre, but it’s cynical and grounded. I would say it’s not necessarily designed to appeal solely to science fiction fans.

OK. Is there anything out there that appeals to a similar demographic?
Fight Club.

I’ve written Novus Divide in a modern and informal style, and I’d like to think of it as being culturally and socially aware. Jake moans and swears a lot, so anyone who prefers more genre driven, traditional, conventional novels might find it a bit much to take.

They’ve been warned. What else do we need to know about Jake?
Jake is a good man, but too much time spent in the city of Novus has made him numb. The only person he’s ever really cared about no longer talks to him and he spends most of his time wallowing in self pity.

They say most first novels are highly autobiographical (whether they were intended to be or not) and it’s safe to say there is a lot of me in Jake.

That’s such a bleak thing to say about yourself! Fill in the rest of the picture.
My name is Adam John Guy, I’m from the southwest of England. I studies Philosophy and Anthropology at university before completing a Masters degree in International Development. I love to travel, and started writing as a way of trying to express some of the things I’ve found frustrating about the modern world.

Do you have a website?
No website.

What about social media?
Social media is not my strong point!

What’s next for you?
I’m currently planning my second novel. I have loose themes, and I want it to be more of a character study that follows the rise and fall of someone with great power. But I still have a lot of work to do.
