UPDATE: While writing The Participants, I did my best to provide a complete story while leaving open plenty of room for a sequel – just in case my readers wanted more. And they did (you guys rock!). So The Participants is now book 1 in the series of the same name. Agents of the Demiurge is now available for purchase. Scroll to the bottom to see the cover and read the blurb.
Like The Participants on FaceBook to be notified of new releases in the series.
Zack Vernon is an immortal Observer sent to watch the world on behalf of the Creator. When his suicide attempt fails spectacularly and earns him a spot on the national news, the other Observers are drawn to him.
They believe Zack to be the reincarnation of a rebellious Observer from a previous world. Several of them plan to punish him for the sins they believe he committed. One of them wants back the man she has loved through hundreds of worlds. But Zack remembers nothing before the present. All he wants is a chance to end his life.
The Participants is a fast-paced 33,000 word novella.
It is available at the following retail sites for free:
Iteration upon Iteration, the Observers have watched the world. They have seen it begin mid-motion with people unaware they did not exist the prior moment. They have seen it end abruptly with people erased between one moment and the next. For millennium they have been privileged to observe worlds on behalf of the Creator.
Until now. The most recent world, Iteration 145, is broken. All evidence points to the schism among the Observers as the source of the problem. And the solution might require immortals to die.
Everything that is made must one day be unmade.
Agents of the Demiurge is a 46,000 word novella.
