10 v24 -- (books about) (love) (the 21st century)



Welcome to 10v24.net! (explanation of site name)

My name is James Banks (email, follow, blog). I am a writer and I make other creative things. I have four books available currently,
Sometime in the 21st Century
The Circle (or for free),
From Me to You, and
How Can We Love? (or for free).

What are these books about?

Sometime in the 21st Century is an immersive, emotional, psychological experience. It's a story of coming to terms with the future, when the future means being with someone (or not). It's kind of like a jazz album and it tells a strange love story.

The Circle is not the best artistically but may be of interest to people who like my other books. It's personal.

From Me to You explores the intense situations and emotions that people (or dinosaurs, parasites, undead creatures) find themselves in, in the form of greeting cards, sent from lover to lover, or from dinosaur to dinosaur, or ... from people to God...

How Can We Love? is a book you might read if you wished to challenge and inspire yourself -- to inspire yourself by confronting yourself. It's about the problem of Evil, trust, trauma, forgiveness, and living your best life.

What else do you have?

I had one other book before the public, which I have put "on hiatus" for a time.

I'm working on a very short book, entitled Destruction and Beauty, and some other short things.

What if I like what you do? What is your email address?

If you like what I do and want to support what I do, you can send me a tip here. $5 is a good amount. Buying a print book is also good.

If you think I can edit things, you can help me have a day job by engaging my services as a copy editor. My rates are reasonable.

But I'm also doing this for reasons other than making money, so send me an email, get in touch. (As of 22 June 2017, I'm not too famous to read your email.)

Site name

10v24 refers to 10:24, which refers to 1024, which is 2^10. 1024 is the number of bytes in a kilobyte, chosen because it was a power of two approximately the same quantity as 1000. 10:24 is like mixing computers and the Bible. There was an old blog hosted here originally which was based around 5 different 10:24s that are present in the Bible, ones which struck me as particularly interesting at the time.
