Hey guys and gals,
Starting today, Wyatt and I are going to post a serialization over at Wattpad. Wattpad’s a site where writers can post their stories one chapter at a time and readers can check them out for free and post comments. If you’d like to read our first chapter, you just need a Wattpad account (it’s all free), and you can check it out here.
Why are we doing this? Well, we’re trying to grow our readership. Also, the serialization is essentially a novel-length prologue to the novel we’re currently working on. The novel is fantasy/sci-fi, two popular genres on Wattpad, so we’re hoping people will check it out. Also, we’re hoping people will provide feedback so we know what we’re doing well, and what we need to work on.
Here’s a brief blurb about the series:
THE HAUNTING OF KALEB BELL
Kaleb Bell is one of five engineers in the town of Idlevine, tasked with maintaining the ancient computer systems which monitor and sustain The Sleepers. Since the death of his wife, Kaleb has struggled to focus on his important work, spending his time fiddling with useless machines and drinking the strange, illegal alcohol fermented by his only friend, Vlad Ramiro.
Then, one morning, everything changes. Vlad, the town’s Watcher, tells Kaleb he saw something on the security feed that hasn’t been observed in at least five hundred years:
The footage showed something–or someone–outside the town’s barriers.
Kaleb, Vlad, and Vlad’s assistant, Jameson Buford, set out to examine the barrier. What they discover will change their lives, and the lives of everyone in the town, forever.
We hope you’ll check the story out and let us know what you think. All of this is pretty new to us (not only posting a serialization, but writing sci-fi/fantasy), so we’re excited and hope you enjoy it. We’ll be posting (hopefully) a new chapter each Saturday.
As always, thank you so much for reading. Have a great weekend!
W & W Sawday
