Read My Short Stories
Been reading the previous storyline winners and I am very impressed with the quality of the writing. I really have nothing to add to this storyline other than joining both would make for an incredible novel. It seems like it would be easy to connect them since Eden is obviously the age of Henry’s missing sister. Her memories have been tampered with so she is unaware of her missing brother. It has the making of an entire run of 12 to 13 young adult novels. As Eden teams up with Vasquez to find her abducted brother and the “members” of Dodeka. The only thing that remains unclear is who is the true villain. Is it Dodeka, the hypono-therapist, or the government itself. Anyway it spins it would make for a great read... Hope I get to see these storylines in a completed format in the future. Is there any way both of these authors could win. I will give the other storylines a look...
