Hey! When did authors go from being faceless loners to self-promoting public figures with state-of-the-art websites, publicists, booking agents, blogs, twitter, billboards, and (coming soon, no doubt) skywriting? Maybe it all started with Mark Twain, but things have gotten a lot more intense in recent years, and this may well be the source of my identity crisis.
GINGER IS BACK!
Ginger Crump and her fiancé-to-be Billy are back in another near-future (tomorrow!) adventure set in Flinkwater, Iowa, home of the world’s largest robot manufacturer.
Ginger is fourteen now, and she figures she can handle anything. After all, she’s dealt with sasquatches, zombies, talking monkeys, computer-induced comas, and other everyday oddities. So when folks in Flinkwater begin to lose their memories she figures it’s no big deal…until her own boyfriend forgets who she is.
To make matters worse, a mysterious censor has hacked every single digital copy of Charlotte’s Web by taking out all the talking animals and replacing them with human characters—and Ginger is only halfway done with the book! Will Ginger be forced to read a book printed on pulverized dead trees? And where will she find such a thing in futuristic, digitalized Flinkwater?
Will Billy ever remember her? Will she ever find out what happens to Charlotte and Wilbur? What will happen when Ginger herself comes face to face with the Forgetting Machine?

GINGER CRUMP HAS A PROBLEM
Several of them, actually, including a sasquatch, a zombie, a talking monkey, a plague of comas, and a DHS agent named Ffelps. But it's nothing she can't handle, because she has a plan.
Ginger always has a plan.
