Storyteller and activist, Ana Levley, publishes her first novel, “Beasts: Beginning of the End, Volume I,” a futuristic dystopian sci-fantasy novel that also stands out for being pro-LGBTQIA+, feminist, pro-vegan, and pro-environmental. This controversial book would not typically be published and/or censored by major publishing companies, but the author believes in freedom of knowledge and expression.
San Diego, CA, August 15, 2018 — The book is set 1,000 years in the future, and it is a perfect utopia…or so it seems. Atlia, a prospective leader of the World Collective, is framed for her father’s telecide – murder by telegraphic, an advanced biotechnology embedded in everyone – only she cannot remember any this. She is deemed a lesser and is sent to the farm, a place where she learns an unforgivable truth about her society and family.
Ana Levley was born and raised north of San Francisco, surrounded by the water and redwood forests. She had a learning disability, which made childhood difficult and she coped with it by studying drama, musical theatre, cinematography, and dance throughout high school and college, graduating from UC Irvine. Most of her storytelling, though, came from helping raise her gregarious younger sister, as well as other children she nannied over the years. She now lives in San Diego where she has made her home with her husband and service dog Sadie.
Before publishing her first novel before turning 30 (a lifelong goal), Levley worked at film studios, publishing companies, and marketing departments, eventually creating her own marketing agency, which still operates today for promoting vegan products, services, and non-profits.
Levley will be holding the following launch parties/book readings:
August 19, 2018 – Band of Dystopian Authors and Fans on Facebook (Global)
August 25, 2018 – Eve in Encinitas, California (San Diego)
