After the Big Wave
by Cyn S. Sinclair

It’s 2080, thirty-five years after the world collapsed in a series of catastrophes known as the Big Wave. But the world survived, and new civilizations emerged through great advances in technology, all of it centered in cities. Those who live in outlying towns and villages survive by preparing citizens for city living and trading them against what they need, including the essential security webs that protect them from the threats of the new world. Seventeen-year-old Seelya is one of those citizens. From the small town of K’uuk, located on a devastated Vancouver Island, she is looking forward to selling herself as a high-value asset to New Vancouver. Identified as a Chosen One from birth, she hopes to become a human engineer and develop new technologies that will save humanity, for better or for worst. But before she moves, life in quiet K’uuk gets disrupted when a nearby town collapse and a surge of refugees arrive. On a trip to material collection, Seelya and the mysterious K are captured by ruthless debris pirates, vicious bandits who scour the ruins of the old world. In Seelya and K’s efforts to escape, trauma, love, hurt, and hope emerge setting the stage for a future that is yet to be written.

Cyn S. Sinclair has always dreamed of writing a novel about the world of the future, particularly a story that will spark new conversations about different economic and political systems that could emerge across the planet if given a blank state. After the Big Wave, book one in the Perfected Format series, is her first step toward realizing that dream. When she’s not busy working on building sustainable futures, Cyn is a fitness enthusiast, a creative cook, and a world traveller. She lives in Vancouver, B.C., with her husband and two sons.
