Made of Stars

(2013)
A Novella by

 
THIS IS A NOVELETTE CONSISTING OF 6,000 WORDS OR EQUAL TO 35 PAGES.

ABOUT THE BOOK: A genius vampire named Sinclair creates an alternate world where vampires can experience a traditional human life of love, marriage, and children. Sixteen-year-old Gabriel is his beta tester and volunteers to fall in love with a coffee shop girl. But when the pain of love becomes overwhelming, Gabriel wonders about his decision. "It's too real," he tells Sinclair. "You made it too real."

GENRE: FANTASY, OCCULT, PARANORMAL, TIME SHIFT, and as one reader delightfully called it: PHANTASMAGORIA

Dear readers,

MADE OF STARS started out as a fun afternoon project with some friends. We set the timer and wrote for two hours, and I came away with the first few pages of what I then called THE PALE BOY. I made that first chapter (just a few pages) available for free online, and was surprised to see that people not only downloaded it, they began leaving lovely reviews.

I was afraid the story was just too out there, too confusing, but the huge lesson I took away from this is to TRUST THE READER. I contemplated making this a full-length novel, or at least a novella, but for right now it would still be classified as a short story, but getting close to novella length. It is a complete story at this point, but I can also see where it could go on and on. So once again I will let readers decide. What do you think? Leave it as a short story that has a beginning, a middle, and an end? Don't mess with something that already feels complete?

FYI: if you like MADE OF STARS, you might also like MAX UNDER THE STARS. Totally unrelated stories, but they are both fantasy and have a similar tone.

WHAT READERS SAID ABOUT THE PALE BOY:

"Brilliant! Unique! A Mesmerizing Mini-Story in a Class of Its Own--"

"Wonderfully weird, a delightful little phantasmagoria. Haunting.."

"Very good idea and even though it is a short story I found myself sucked in right away and on the island wondering what would happen next. "

"This is one of those stories that you can read many times and bring away something new each time. "

"The story is very, very well written; well written to the point that I have trouble getting it out of my mind. "
