Book Tours: Guest Post Serendipidus


I’m hosting a guest post today for the book tour for fantasy satire novel “Serendipidus”. The guest post talks about fashion. Without further ado, I’ll leave the word to the author!

Forever Fashion

Fashion is more than just beautiful clothes and gorgeous models. It demonstrates present day society, and it predicts the future. In my book Serendipidus, fashion plays a small role. I introduce a fictional designer, Milo Chagrin and his Forever Fashion—plastic bustiers, Styrofoam brassieres and cellophane dresses—clothing that will last until the next millennium.

This fashion displays a society so disconnected with nature; it will litter future generations. As the story continues into the despair of a decaying world, Chagrin adorns gowns with charred rubble studs and shattered glass beads. The face of fashion mirrors the conditions of the world and its people.

Fashion can take on a new fever of natural fabrics and adornments. Fashion, like the men who create it can reconnect with earth. Instead of designing fashion for models, imagine Mother Nature a fashionable icon.

Beautiful natural adornments are abundant—flowers, crystals, and shells. Who needs plastics and polymers? The true beauty of Mother Nature’s designs is many are degradable and renewable. Perhaps instead of looking for our fashion to last forever, maybe we can find ways for Mother Nature’s beauty to last.

About the Book

Serendipidus2Title: Serendipidus

Author: Jennifer Ott

Genre: Fantasy Satire

“Maybe it’s time to set aside intellectualism and experience the wonders of thngs that can’t be explained.”

The Earth has stopped rotating and no one seems to notice or care, except for bleeding-heart supermodel Venetia DeMille. While Mother Earth begins to fade into a silent death, Venetia clings to hope. She solicits the help of a scientist to help, but no avail.

Not to be hindered in her quest to save the Earth, Venetia sets out on a journey around the world to find like-minded people and caring souls – an exuberant youth, a magical healer and a man of God. Although together they are able to rekindle faith, their effort still does not provide results. It is a mysterious meeting of four horsemen that carry them to the east where they experience a connection to the earth and each other.

Could the forces that gather with their united efforts prove to be the remedy to save the planet?

Author Bio

Bio PicsmInspiration comes from watching way too much Monty Python. The abstract and the absurd way of looking at normal life, not only offers humor, but questions many problems in society in a light-hearted manner. If we can laugh at ourselves, if we can laugh at life, problems do not seem quite so difficult to tackle.  In fact, problems are not as complicated as they seem; everything is very simple. If you can laugh at it, write about it and read about it, most likely one would think about it.

Author Jennifer Ott has written several satire fiction, Wild Horses, The Tourist and two non-fiction books Love and Handicapping and Ooh Baby Compound Me! Her latest book about the homecoming of a Vietnam Veteran, Edge of Civilization will be released soon.

Jennifer Ott lives in Long Beach, California, enjoys the sun, the sand, the surf and lots of Mexican food.
