The Ups and Downs of Being Dead

By M. R. Cornelius

Sci-Fi, Paranormal | Paperback, eBook


Fifty-seven-year-old Robert Malone is the CEO of a successful clothing store chain and married to a former model. When his doctor tells him he is dying of cancer, he refuses to go quietly. Instead of death, Robert chooses cryonics. He knows it’s a long shot. His frozen body will be stored in liquid nitrogen for the next seventy-five years, and then he’ll wake up in the future. Maybe. If technology figures out a way to bring him back. He’s willing to take that gamble. What he doesn’t realize is that he won’t lie in some dreamless state all that time. His soul is very much awake, and free to move about, just like the others who were frozen before him. He discovers that he can ride in the cockpit with the pilots, but he can’t turn the page of a magazine. He can sit in the oval office with the president, but he can’t prevent a child from dashing in front of a car. He can’t work, or eat, or sleep. These obstacles make it difficult to fall in love, and virtually impossible to reconcile with the living. Over the next several decades, Robert Malone will have plenty of time to learn The Ups and Downs of Being Dead.

After working for fifteen years as a cafeteria manager in an elementary school, Marsha Cornelius turned in her non-skid shoes for a bathrobe and slippers. She now works at home, writing novels, acting out scenes with her cats, and occasionally running a Swiffer across dusty surfaces. Like thousands of others, she thought she could write romance, but soon discovered she was a dismal failure. She did increase her repertoire of adjectives such as throbbing, pulsing, thrumming, vibrating, hammering, pumping . . . Her debut novel, H10N1, a thriller about a flu pandemic gone awry, received 5 stars from Midwest Book Review. The Ups and Downs of Being Dead, a story about a man who chooses to have his body cryonically-frozen rather than face death, received the Awesome Indie Award. The AIA medallion was also awarded to her third novel, Losing It All, a drama that follows a homeless man as he helps a mother and her two small children get off the streets. Losing It All also received the BRAG Medallion. Habits Kick Back, her latest novel, tells the story of a college girl who decides to kick her drug habit, only it isn’t what you think. She wants to stop taking all the pills that control her weight, help her concentrate, keep her awake to study, improve her mood, and even suppress her sexual appetite. All of Marsha Cornelius’ books can be found on her Amazon author’s page: http://amzn.to/SLhv6O Originally from Indiana, Cornelius lives in the countryside north of Atlanta with her husband and two molly-coddled cats who refuse to wear socks and dust the furniture.
