transports author Alexa Wainwright to an alternate universe where the
characters from her novels are given the breadth of life. Having just
made a vow that she would do whatever it took to once again achieve
the international acclaim of her debut novel, Alexa doesn’t realize
how ominously that vow would be tested. In this altered reality,
she’s introduced to media mogul King Blakemore who offers her an

get so much satisfaction in the writing process. I take care to
choose just the right word, to make sure each sentence has the right
cadence. I appreciate other writers who respect the craft in this
way, and I hope my readers do so with me. Writing is a need, a desire
for expression, and springs from well within my subconscious mind.
Thoughts rise up, scenes rise up and blend in with the over-arching
story. These thoughts emerge whenever they want to and wherever I am
and probably not when I am at the computer. The computer is for the
craft, the technique. The thoughts come during walks, or while
driving the car, or at the grocery store. I am the willing recipient
of these thoughts and so they seek me out. It’s a mystery this
business and art of writing and it keeps me enthralled.

When death washes ashore on reality TV, who’s to blame? And what’s real?

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

“Intelligently conceived and well-executed…A mystery that thoughtfully reflects on the hazy line between suspicion and reckless mania.” – Kirkus Reviews

Zack Hacker the author of Cut Reality a murder mystery 

Join Jason Debord as he seeks clarity following the death of a reality TV co-star and ends up uncovering criminal conspiracy.

When Jason returned home from competing on Beached he’d lost weight, couldn’t sleep, and felt more alone than ever. But, he expected those changes. Jason had no way to predict that one of his fellow competitors would fling himself from a cliff. Unless he didn’t.

Jason can’t believe it, but the network broadcasts the alleged suicide to the world, so he pushes forward in his own amateur investigation. Met with resistance from the cast and crew, he persists only through the support of his developing romance with Blake, a psychologist who observes alarming similarities between her patient and her partner.

Events in Cut Reality have a variety of interpretations. While under the watchful eye of the public, Jason has to decide: is what he uncovers too coincidental to be true, or so hard to accept because it’s his new reality.

Buy Zack Hacker’s anticipated debut novel to find out what Jason discovers…

What critics are saying:

“On the surface, Cut Reality is a murder mystery; but actually it is much more…Highly recommended for those who like their intrigue steeped in philosophical insights and dilemmas.” – Midwest Book Review

“When I heard the premise of Cut Reality, I almost died…and I wouldn’t lie about that.” – Jonny Fairplay, Survivor NSFW

“[Zack Hacker] makes poignant critiques though subtle plot developments, holding back from judging society at large, but willing to poke holes in some of our accepted values…From the first tension-filled scene…Cut Reality will keep readers guessing, but also leave them with plenty to think about.” – SPR

“The perfect genre book at the perfect time.” – San Francisco Book Review

“Cut Reality is the type of thoughtful, provocative work that you don’t see much of in the reality TV fanbase anymore. I had a lot of fun reading it.” – Mario Lanza, author of When It Was Worth Playing For, The Funny 115, and host of Survivor Historians

“★★★★★ I have always loved books that can surprise me – this book did that and more.” – Readers’ Favorite Reviews

All of these actions are to show police that he is actively searching.
Deep down, though, he just doesn’t care anymore. But, does Rory’s
