So, I’ve been wanting to share a bit of fun news for a while, but didn’t want to jinx it until I knew it was a done deal. I’ve been working on a bit of freelancing for a cool app called Episode. It’s all about interactive storytelling, in a fun, animated format. What does that mean for you? This is basically like reading an animated comic book on your phone (any Android/iOS device) for free when you download their app. You get to make choices about who you talk to, how you interact, even what you’re wearing!
The story I’m writing for them is called Always Talk to Strangers. Here’s the teaser blurb:
The sheltered daughter of a tycoon is saved from a violent attack by a handsome stranger with a mysterious secret – but is he friend or foe? She won’t know who to trust as her own powers emerge, and her past proves to be the most mystifying of all.
In typical Lisa Olsen style, you’ll see lots of twists and turns, love and betrayal, a sassy heroine who comes into her own power and a whole lotta secrets to be uncovered. I hope you’ll check it out, the more readers I get, the more prominently they’ll place my story.
Here’s the link to get the apps (or you can find them on your phone): http://pocketgems.com/episode-interactive/
My story is listed under the “Fantasy” category and then under the “pilots” section.
In addition to my story, there are dozens of other animated stories there and if you can even try the writer’s portal if you’re interested in trying your hand at animating your own story for fun.
