Desert Storm

Desert Storm

(The third book in the Skeleton Project series)
A Novella by

Mystery, humor, horror, suspense, and supernatural--the ingredients of a read-me-under-the-covers kind of story. The Skeleton Project is a series of supernatural mysteries in the same vein as the X-Files or The Nightstalker shows. Written to be enjoyed by readers from sixth grade to senior status, you'll find these tales are a little serious and a little tongue-in-cheek. Please note: this is a series of short stories, minimum 5,000 words.

Episode 3: File #0003 will send Skeleton Project Agents Pershing and Minnis into the unforgiving heat of Nevada's Black Rock Desert. UFO sightings and a mysterious, ultra top secret Air Force base force our heroes to proceed with caution, but caution isn't enough. There are things waiting for Pershing and Minnis in the desert. It might be a link to Pershing's long lost pet fennec fox Max, or it might be the end of the Skeleton Project itself.

About the Author: Wayne Thomas Batson is a bestselling author of young adult fantasy and adventure novels. He's sold half a million books and counting, including the bestselling Door Within Trilogy. If you're a fan of Batson's fiction, you'll love this new series of stories.

About Batson's Short Fiction: "I wrote these stories for my students (Batson has taught middle school Reading & English for 22 years) long before the novels. I needed good, high interest stories to supplement the curriculum, so I wrote my own. Little did I expect that students would become so fond of the stories. I began to infuse each tale with cues for reading comprehension strategies (predicting, inferring, connecting, etc.), literary elements (plot, character, setting, etc.), and writing techniques (the 6+1 traits, figures of speech, suspense tactics, etc)... all to allow dozens of "teachable moments" in each story. For middle or high school teachers who purchase these short stories, feel free to print a class set for your kids. Enjoy!" --Wayne Thomas Batson
