Conspire

Conspiracy, Conspire: make secret plans jointly to commit a harmful act; working together to bring about a particular result, typically to someone’s detriment. ORIGIN late Middle English: from Old French conspirer, from Latin conspirare agree, plot, from con- together with spirare breathe.

Definition borrowed from the Wikileaks Manifesto by Julian Assange.

The idea for Conspire came to me relatively fully formed. I started writing it in late June 2010 and have recently decided to self publish through Smashwords. You can also read a review on What Book to Read here (by my mum!).

Just to wet your appetite, below is the foreword:

The Bilderberg Group is a real conference, named after the location of the first meeting in 1954 at the Bilderberg Hotel, in the Netherlands. Originally formed to support Atlanticism (a stronger relationship between Western Europe and the USA after World War II), the group promotes Cooperation in political, economic and defence issues. With around 130 members invited each year from government, commerce and media, the group was largely kept from the public eye, until recent years when the digital age has made secrecy of this scale near impossible.

Although the media now know of the existence of the group and most of the recent attendees, little is known about what is actually discussed at the meetings. Members are completely barred from revealing anything about their involvement, which has led to many conspiracy theories surrounding the formation of a New World Order, or a World Government, controlled by the elite of the Western World.

With past members alleged to include Hilary Clinton, Tony Blair, Angela Merkel, Bill Gates, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and David Rockefeller, unsurprisingly there are many raised eyebrows about the continued secrecy surrounding this annual meeting.

You can find out more about the Bilderberg Group by Googling ‘Bilderberg Group.’

Since I started Conspire, there have been a lot of things going on in the real world which are closely related to the themes in the book. Julian Assange, who I knew little about when I started the plot, is referenced in a few places in connection with ‘leaks’ and ‘insider knowledge of conspiracies’. The revolution that swept through Tunisia, Egypt and Lybia (ongoing) is somewhat related to themes in Conspire. There are other things also going on which pop up in my fiction, but I’m not going to give too much away!

      Well, anybody who sutgsegs it is accused of hating kids. Since I know you don’t, that is a bogus charge, but they will make it anyway.And if you view schools as most parents do, as daycare with lunch provided that other people pay for, you can understand that cutting it will be viewed as a tax raise by them.Sure, they get 12 years benefit and pay for another 50 or 60, so they are being stupid, but hey it all boils down to stupid doesn’t it?

      I could watch a dvd but the point is I want to go to a theater and eat pprocon and watch a good movie. Guns of Navarrone is good. There were lots of good movies made in the late 60 s and 70 s but today’s general release movies have forsaken plot and acting for CGI. Many are remakes or reboots (Planet of the Apes) that didn’t need to be made.This year has been particularly bad.

      Hard to comment witouht knowing which Nikon model, but I agree that for comparable price points they deliver comparable performance.I generally recommend people pay a bit less for the camera and get a good quality lense. If they can afford just one lense, I recommend the Tamron 18-200 or if they can afford it the Tamron 18-300. I never recommend buying the kit. There is a bunch of junk it it that wastes money. Buy the body. Buy a great lense. Buy a case that matches your portability needs. Get Photoshop, or Elements if on a budget.

  1. They are some relatively new Intel based processors in the i3, i5 and i7 lines which look very promising for gaming. If you don’t have Windows 7, be sure to read my article on how to use a PS3 Sixaxis controller with Windows XP or Vista.

    Dear Victoria. I am a freelance permissions editor working for Cambridge University Press and have been asked to contact you to ask your permission for CUP to reprint an extract of your book ‘Conspire’ in a forthcoming educational course book. I couldn’t see an email address online for you and would be very grateful if you could get in touch with me to discuss this further. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Rebecca.
