Ship of Fire

(2012)
(The fourth 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 7,000 words.

Episode 4: File #0004 will find Skeleton Project Agents Pershing and Minnis heading to the North Carolina shore for her parents' huge Halloween party. But the sleepy coastal town of Redport has a bloody secret. A three hundred year old mass murder, ghostly sightings of a fiery pirate ship, and dozens of unexplained deaths--will test Pershing and Minnis' wit and will as they attempt to solve the mystery of the Ship of Fire.

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
