Check out the blog Serial Distractions which posts about “fiction, reviews, geekery” and has reviewed x0 and rather liked it.
46. Ascending is the name of a collection of six interrelated novels that describe the adventures of the oddly gifted Zeitman family. The first novel, x0, concerns telepathic Lola as she finds herself the unlikely hero in a rescue mission in Nigeria. It has been available online since March 2012.
The second novel, y1, tells of son Zane who, unbeknownst to his parents, has always had an odd ability to alter his appearance. This turns out to be very handy when Zane finds himself in danger while working at a pharmaceutical company in Chicago, and even more convenient when his situation threatens his friends in the South Pacific.
Both novels, y1 and x0, occur somewhat contemporaneously and either can be read as a stand alone book, or these two books can be read in either order. y1 will be available electronically by the end of summer 2012.
The third novel in the series will be available at the end of 2012 and will continue both Lola and Zane’s adventures forward, as well as introducing the special gift of yet another member of the family.
The second interactive novel in this series, y1, has just come back from my exceptional editor/copy editor and is now undergoing the process of tweaking and massaging. In a week or two it will be headed off to the trio of highly adept and insightful friends who have taken on the task of guiding this series as part of their pro bono contribution to life. Then it is on track to be available at amazon.com and at smashwords.com by the end of summer 2012.
Also, the domain name for the y1 website/blog has just been purchased and construction there will begin shortly. Meanwhile, check here and on Lola’s Facebook page for y1 updates.
A short preview follows:
y1, fire dancing for fun and profit, tells of the adventures of twenty-four year old Zane Zeitman as he comes to terms with his first real job at Penthes Pharmaceuticals and with all the secrets he finds hidden behind the company’s calm corporate facade. Of course, it is hard to concentrate on work what with all the fire dancing and yachts sailing around the South Pacific, not to mention the odd shape changing that Zane’s own body seems to do more easily all the time.
And just when he thought real life couldn’t get any stranger, there is the additional problem of becoming a murder suspect…..
