I can finally tell you all about one of my secret projects!
Yes, only one . :) But don't worry, I have lots of things up my sleeves and you'll learn more about the others soon.
Anyhow, I signed a contract with Echelon Press. I'm one of twelve authors from around the world to participate in the exciting new Electric Shorts division. Written specifically for young readers, the Electric Shorts are high impact stories presented in a venue similar to that of popular television series. Electric Shorts will publish one story/episode each month in eBook. An Electric Shorts season will last six months. My first episode [Seeing for the First Time] in the "What You See is What You Get" series will debut on March 8, 2011.
Electric Shorts are written for readers between the ages of seven and seventeen with fast-paced and intense storylines.
Seeing For the First Time
Ever since she was six, ten years ago, Ana has to spend her summers with Gram. There's never anything to do, the closest beach is two hours away, and Ana's convinced her Gram is crazy. She's always talking to things that weren't there.
One day, Ana sees strange colors near Gram as she works in her garden. Gram says they're fairies. She can See them, and there are others who can. Ana's a Seer, too, she just hasn't seen her paranormal creature yet.
Gram gives Ana a book that explains about many different creatures: selkies, unicorns, vampires, and many others. The entry about werewolves mentions Ana's parents as famous werewolf hunters.
Now Ana's summer is turning more exciting and she plans on finding her paranormal creature. Even if it might prove dangerous… and deadly.
