Cyborg Sunday, Update 2.18.2018: Five Stars for At the Hands of Madness!

It is four A. M.

Why am I awake right now?

Writers never sleep.

–“Hustle” by Yours Truly

 

WHAT. 5 star review for At the Hands of Madness!

It’s only one review so far, but it’s so awesome to see this book get such praise. Some snippets:

“An emotional rollercoaster.”

“You can perfectly imagine what Holton is narrating and that makes you grin more than once.”

“The tension is constant all through the book, and the author’s imagination tricks you and challenges your mind, even when you don’t expect it.”

“His writing is spotless and his effort in perfecting every detail is obvious.”

Now where is the ‘big grin’ emoji on WordPress…

I’m also polishing the script for These Walls Don’t Talk, They Scream, a novel coming soon from HellBound Books. It’s a big lower budget than the At the Hands of Madness film would be, but as my coffee mug says, Good things come to those who go out and fucking hustle.

No, it actually says that.

In cyborg/diabetes news, Methyldopa, a blood pressure medication, could have the potential to block the DQ8 molecule, which appears in 60 percent of people at risk for Type 1 diabetes! Obviously, this doesn’t help me, but it might help the people you love.

Allegedly, scientists can predict the illness with near 100% certainty, and Type 1 is only 5-10% of all diabetes anyway, but considering that Type 2 is preventable (or treatable) through healthy diet and exercise, we’re well on our way to stamping this bastard of a disease out!

Byte me, big pharma.

An article from last August states that we’re “one step closer” to a T1D cure through islet cell implants thanks to ViaCyte. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen researchers exploring this option, though, so I can only hope these clinical trials pan out.

ONE OF THE TRIALS IS RECRUITING.

I’m ending the post here so I can investigate further.

See you on the other side, kids.
