Life and death in a video game!
Quantum Hughes is the kind of guy who won't back down from a fight.
And it's a damn good thing too, because he's stuck in a violent noir world that is trying to murder him on a daily basis. The assassination attempts start at about 8:05 AM, and they continue from that point forward.
A chance encounter with a beautiful woman named Frances Euphoria puts Quantum on the fast track to electrifying action and gripping adventure.
But everything isn't fun and games for Quantum Hughes. A murder guild known as the Reapers are closing in, and they're killing people in the process.
Will Quantum be able to stop them in time, or will the Reapers get to him first? And just how connected is he to the Reapers?

Available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible.
Reviews for Book One:
★★★★★ "Reading The Feedback Loop is like taking a master class on how to write an engaging and expertly crafted novel." --Amazon reviewer
"Five stars. If Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Raymond Chandler, and Dashiell Hammett got together to write a LitRPG, and they used every conceivable piece of noir verbiage ever written (in the best possible way), they'd turn out The Feedback Loop by Harmon Cooper. It's funny, fast paced, and full of bullets. The poetry purrs like a one-two punch. This is Cooper's tough love letter to the crime noir and LitRPG genres. Excellent from page one to the heart-wrenching end." --Baron Sord, LitRPG author of Reternity Online : Rescue Quest
"The Feedback Loop has a core of solid noir, is wrapped in a rich coating of ultra-violence, sprinkled with witty dialog, and leaves you satisfied with a smile on your face ... but drooling for more. Bravo!" --Eric Nylund, New York Times bestselling author of HALO: The Fall of Reach, and Hero of Thera.
★★★★★ "Imagine if Sword Art Online was smart, violent, gritty and intense." -- Apollos Thorne, author of Codename: Freedom.
★★★★★ "A mad, insane totally awesome sci-fi story... With sharp writing and an edgy, fast-paced plot, it's easy to get lost in the game yourself. The extensive and graphic world-building with The Loop should especially impress gamers." -- Amazon top 500 reviewer.
