I am thrilled to announce the release of my new serial mystery, A New Rope, on Amazon Vella. This is a project that has been years in the making and inspired by the two Star Wars guys in my life, The Tech Guy and Sky Guy! I wrote this YA mystery during the pandemic, and they have offered up their input into the world of Beckman Falls. Now we need your thoughts and suggestions!
As a serial fiction platform, Vella allows me to share the story in bite-sized episodes, perfect for on-the-go reading. It’s going to be a bit like our pandemic project, where I’ll be asking for your input throughout the process. I’ll be sharing reader polls, asking questions, and giving notes about the story on the way. I want to hear your feedback and ideas as the story develops. Join me on this exciting journey and be part of shaping the adventure. Let’s explore new worlds and discover what’s at the end of the rope together!
For those of you who prefer reading full-length novels, I’ll be publishing the final version of A New Rope in print and e-book later this year.
About A New Rope:
Get ready for an adventure that takes you to a galaxy far, far away! A New Rope is an exciting new serial novel set in the charming small town of Beckman Falls. The story follows Skylar and his best friend Kalea as they work to save their dream retro collectible toy store, The Outer Rim, by finding a buyer for a rare Jawa action figure.
But when a mysterious business partner of a potential buyer appears at their grand opening with urgent news about the Gramble Treasure, the two friends find themselves caught up in a dangerous treasure hunt that could save or destroy everything they’ve worked for. Join in on a wild ride filled with Star Wars treats, a modern mystery, and a treasure hunt that will leave you on the edge of your seat. And don’t forget to share your input and feedback as the story develops – I’ll be sharing reader polls, asking questions, and giving you exclusive notes about the story along the way!
