REAWAKENING  is a Sci Fi love story that laughs at life and tells its tale.   "Notsew" is a far away place where everything you learned about life on earth is turned upside down.  This book is my second publication; the favourite of my dear sister, Muriel, to whom this book is dedicated.

In her memory, I will share this excerpt from REAWAKENING with you.

Once within its sparkling, white interior he became a small but important part of the bustling throng of Primes and Midescents who were arriving on duty or departing at their shift’s end.  Apart from the Newolds who never leave the Reawakening Centre until they become Midescents, no one had access to the Centre except for the Primes and Midescents so assigned,

But in this, as in everything else on Notsew, sometimes mistakes occurred. Throughout his own justification on Notsew to date Jim had heard of only one such mistake and it was a huge one with a devastating outcome.

No one could ever understand how the impossible became a likely, feasible reality but somehow a playful, imaginative, erratic Midager managed to devise what appeared to be an authentic entry card. How he evaded detection when he left the Midager Centre was anyone’s guess but somehow that was exactly what happened.  He did just that.

Gaining entry to the Reawakening Centre was intended to be a simple procedure for those authorized to enter.  It was unfortunate that on this memorable day the trouble-maker also found the process a simple one to accomplish. The Midager inserted the identity card which the machine accepted as authentic.  He punched some numbers at random and gained quick and easy entry.  It was as simple as that.

Of course, once he reached the interior no one paid him the slightest attention because, of course, everyone knew that wrongful entry into the Reawakening Centre was unachievable.  The Midager, unnoticed, entered the sleep space of the Newolds and began stuffing soothing capsules into their tight, often toothless, mouths.  It was not until then that all hell broke loose.  Those Newolds capable of doing so were crying out to be rescued.  It was only then that the irresponsible Midager drew attention to himself and was captured.

And, of course, again The Powers deemed it necessary that the Midager be chastised. He had no way to escape the punishment and he received his comeuppance. He was denied soothing capsules for two weeks.  To a playful, irresponsible Midager this was a fate worse than compaction.
With regard to this book let me share with you one review by Maggie Kirton who, at the time of writing, was the Executive Director of Wynterblue Publishing Canada.

She writes, "Every now and then a manuscript comes across my desk that completely captivates me. Austin has reached inside the human heart and removed all boundaries pertaining to everlasting love and her ability to play with the English language successfully is astounding.

Austin's Reawakening is a must read. It will take you into a land not far from your heart and bring you back to earth again believing that all things are possible with love and hope." 
Another review of REAWAKENING:

" Let me first wipe my droplets of moisture from my eyes. Some shed from sadness of a love so strong and true, that never seems to be a " togetherness of two the way I would hope. Then some shed for the amazing job Austin did in making me laugh at the craziness of our "human" lives.
"Reawakening" is a story I could not give anything less than 5 stars to. It is a love story, mixed with sci-fi, also mixed with drama and the comedy that sneaks up if you have the ability to laugh at oneself. Would I go as far as calling this book a I cannot! It is a book of love, true love, something many think they know, but will realize if by this story very few may actually have it right. A love on earth where age, appearance were not important to the two involved, happiness, comfort, and love was without a question in their lives. A must read for men and women.
