Tracy S. Lawson, an author, friend and client has just signed a deal to write an Adult Novel (one in a series of 3) called Counteract.

I met Tracy when she was just realizing that this book was going to happen – meaning she HAD to write it. She knew it was good, really good, and after reading the first chapter so did I. I was super excited to  help her create a website where she could send perspective publishers. At the website you can download the first chapter and get a flavor from the website, what it’s about.

You see, if you have an idea for a book and are going to send it to perspective publishers, you pretty much have to have a supporting website and social media just for the book. It’s the nature of publishing today.

Tracy and I also created a website for her as an author, as she writes other books as well.

I’m so proud!

Buddhapuss Ink LLC, a NJ based book publisher, is pleased to announce the signing of author, Tracy Lawson’s debut New Adult novel, Counteract, with first rights on the next two books in the trilogy. The book is set in 2034, just as the US braces for a chemical weapons attack—but is the government’s antidote the greater threat?
“Readers who love dystopian novels like Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, and 1984, will love this series.” said MaryChris Bradley, Publisher of Buddhapuss Ink LLC. “We are excited to be publishing our first book for the New Adult audience by such a talented author. Counteract is the story of a guy and a girl brought together by a terrorist attack, and the discovery that sets them racing to expose a high level conspiracy that might destroy the country from within.”


“I write dystopian fiction partly so it will stay. . . fiction.” states Tracy. “I believe that introducing these themes in books geared for this age group will open their minds to the ideas presented, and better prepare them to take on the task of becoming the thinkers, and questioners, our future may depend on.”
Tracy Lawson knew she wanted to be a writer from the time she could read. In the first grade, she authored sixty-seven contact-paper bound books. Though that pace proved impossible to maintain, she always intended to be a “real” author one day.
While working toward her Bachelor’s degree in Communication at Ohio University, she studied creative writing with Daniel Keyes, author of Flowers for Algernon. After short stints as a media buyer, and an investigative analyst, she settled into a 20-year career in the performing arts, teaching tap in Columbus, Ohio, and choreographing musicals. Though her creative energies were focused on dance, she never lost her desire to write, and has two non-fiction books to her credit: Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More, winner of the 2012 Ohio Professional Writers Association’s Best Non-fiction History Award (McDonald & Woodward), and Given Moments (Fathers Press).
Tracy’s love for writing new adult fiction is sparked by all wonderful teens in her life, including her daughter Keri, a college freshman. Counteract is Tracy’s first novel.
