kNewspapers: A Novel About Love and Citizen Journalism by K. Paul Mallasch

kNewspapers: A Novel About Love and Citizen Journalism by K. Paul Mallasch
$0.99 or FREE for Prime Members

Downsized in 2005 from a midsize daily newspaper in the Midwest and on the run from a soon-to-be ex-wife, intrepid webmaster Paul Malinski transforms into kpaul. His goal is to start a news and information source from the ground up, something truly by the people and for the people.  

On his journey, he learns a lot about journalism, greed, love, black holes, Occupy Wall Street, robots and automation, poetry, selflessness, mental illness and much more. Perhaps most important, he learns about himself and that one person alone can't do everything.

This is an autobiographical novel, a work of fiction that describes the continued decline of big media and the rise of "citizen journalism" as seen through the eyes of a man who believes that Journalism is much too important to leave to large corporations.
