$0.99 Sale April 11 – 17, 2021.
From the halls of D.C. to the remote shores of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, OFF GRID is a wild ride through a dystopian near future of mass surveillance.
In the wake of a global calamity, the economy collapses. The Feds respond by wielding every power of the Welfare State to control the populace. A key tool is PivPal, an indispensable smartphone used to track citizens. As civil liberties crumble, resistance is relegated to flyover country whose residents—derided as off-gridders—cling to the time-honored virtues of freedom, self-reliance, and charity. Against this backdrop, Jenny Hernandez struggles to keep her rural church community nourished and safe. Hiding from the Feds, a team of inventors, and Jenny’s ex, arrive to complete the amazing plasma drive. They bring hope, but also the watchful eye of Big Brother. With the authorities closing in, local law enforcement must choose sides.
In the tradition of Atlas Shrugged, OFF GRID is philosophical fiction, wrapped in a political thriller, with a sci-fi/romance twist.

J. P. Redding has a lifelong attachment to the state of Michigan both as a vacationer and resident. While majoring in Political Science at a major university, he delved into classical political philosophies as well as socialist and neo-Marxist theory (which he rejected). During college, Redding took a stab at creative writing by enrolling in an advanced seminar. The results were mixed: his fellow students were encouraging, the professor less so. Subsequently, he went on to receive a master’s degree in business administration.
Redding’s business experience ranges from corporate executive to startup entrepreneur. He had a 14-year career with a Fortune 100 company, gaining first-hand knowledge of large bureaucracies in a regulated industry. More recently, Redding founded a software business that he nurtured into an INC 500 Company – one of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in the U.S. He is an inventor with multiple patents.
Redding enjoys extreme watersports including windsurfing, kiteboarding, and SUP surfing. OFF GRID is his first novel.
