For those of you who don’t know. Story Time was an idea I came up with that attempts to bring the author and the audience closer together before the tale is done. I figured that people would love to be able to play a role in the events of the stories they read and the characters they shared their imagination with. So far I’d have to say that it has been a postive experience. Since the first story launched about two months ago the site has had a steady stream of visitors and has played host five active storylines in five different genres.
Other authors have expressed their interest and we’re yet to have their opening chapters but it has been growing slowly. Plus it’s got this really cool logo and everything. 🙂
The reason for this post is to spread the message that Story Time is alive and that there are some pretty cool tales being told by people who would absolutely love your input. Here is a brief synopsis of what is there right now:
Caster’s Web of Deceit
Bluefeather, a macaw, and captain of a merchant galley, is forced into making a deal with a trecherous water caster. The spiteful mage doesn’t mind putting the crew at risk in pursuit of her mission. Bluefeather is left with little choice but to do what she says and try and do best by those under his care.
In a not too distant future, technology suddenly stops working. Holden, CEO of a technology mega corporation and one of the world’s wealthiest men, just wants to get back to his family. Unfortunately, they are on the other side of the city and he has some more immediate troubles.
Kade finds himself in the middle of a forest in the Montana wilderness, with no memory of his past. All he has to guide him is a crumpled bit of newspaper with one word written on it. Run!
Rochelle just wanted to go shopping. Instead her quest for the perfect little black dress was interrupted by a strange man who shoved a briefcase in her face demanding that she hold onto it for a while. When they started threatening those around her things went really down hill.
Tamara Jackson is a typical teenage girl. Juggling school, dancing, and a mother that “just wants her to do well.” Then, her best friend, Kaylee, drops off the map for a few days and TJ is called in to help find her. It turns out that not everything is as it seems.
If there’s something on that list of tales that might interest you, then please take the time to read them and have a say in how they turn out. As a writer I know how great it feels to interact with your readers, and I am sure that every one of the authors above would love it if you took the time to stop by.
