Attention YA fans: The Ravens Crossing

YA fantasy fans, check out this promising new series by Andi Lea, Amanda Corlies and West Thornhill: The Ravens Crossing

What is The Ravens Crossing?

The Ravens Crossing (TRC) is a young adult internet-based, interactive, fantasy series set in a fictional world within a real city. TRC has been in the planning stages since 2011. The Ravens Crossing:

  • Written by multiple authors.
  • Created with a team of editors, content advisors, artists, and graphic designers of all ages.
  • A long term project with an intriguing cast of characters.
  • A series of stories involving multiple characters, multiple points of view, and one goal: To tell a continuing tale of extraordinary events.
  • Celebrates diversity.

Months of development have been dedicated by the TRC team to create something that has never been seen before on the internet. The building blocks were set into motion during a weekly coffee get-together. From there it took on a life of its own. All of the authors agreed to work in a flash fiction style, limiting each daily episode to 1,000 words or less. TRC will grow, change, and evolve as the stories unfold.

What Can Readers Expect?

Expect the unexpected! Readers can find something new at TRC every day of the week.

  • Monday through Saturday: One story each day.
  • Sunday: Special content, news, information, and surprises.
  • Interactive participation: In time, readers will join in the fun. 
  • Direct communication: Chat with the team at TRC.

For a moment there, after only seeing your subject heading, I thought you were going to announce you are writing YA! O_O

Stylistically, I think I could write YA since I choose pretty direct words, but honestly, writing a teenaged protagonist doesn't really interest me. I like my characters at least 35 if not 45 or older. My own teens and twenties were hard enough...don't want to relive them through writing in that headspace.

Funny enough, I do read it. One of my favorite authors lately is Paul Westerberg, whose series Uglies influenced Zero Hour a lot.

(Sorry deleted comment as I didn't want it to come across as being negative)
Do you mean Scott Westerfield?

Oh, I must! I have a fever, I'm not making a lot of sense.
