Lani Massey Brown had this to say about her new novel:

A Margin of Error: Ballots of Straw dramatizes how easy it is for one dedicated techie to steal an election. Sadly, as my novel reveals, even a paper trail will not ensure one-voter-one-vote-every-time. Here in Florida we’ve banned paperless voting machines. In Sarasota we’ve scrapped touch screens only to quick-quick replace them with optical scanners…another stand-alone vote-counting machine that can prove just as fragile, just as susceptible, just not as visibly flawed. While the heroine of my novel scoffs at the notion of a silent coup marching across the country in her fictitious voting machines…. How will we know it’s right?
