Today is a very exciting day for me! The very first emotobook I have edited, the thrilling and suspenseful EmotoSingle Suburbians, written by William Kosh and illustrated by Loran Skinkis, went live this morning! It is a heart-wrenching story about a young boy, just entering his teenage years, who has to deal with a horrible secret. As you sit on the edge of your seat, you follow him through his struggle to retain his sanity and to keep his friendship intact. It is only $2.99 and is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords (it will be available with Apple soon, they are just taking a bit longer).
Some of you who might not have followed me for very long might be wondering, what in the world are emotobooks? To begin with, emotobooks are ebooks with illustrations blended with the text. Each abstract illustration amplifies the emotions of the characters and heightens your own sensation as you read. They are crafted by taking the highest quality popular fiction and inserting custom-made illustrations from a talented artist.
That leads to the next question: What is an EmotoSingle? The answer is simple: EmotoSingles are short emotobooks, usually between 6,000 and 10,000 words. They are an emotionally-packed short story that you can read on your commute, during breaks, or while you are lounging at home.
For the past several months, I have had the great pleasure of connecting with William Kosh and Loran Skinkis (the author and illustrator of Suburbians, respectfully) through Grit City Publications. While I am still beginning my editing career, I have learned a great deal from these two wonderful and talented individuals. We have created, through hard work and dedication, a moving and gripping EmotoSingle that will wow everyone who reads it. It has been my privilege to work with them, and I am entirely grateful for the drive and creativity they have brought to the table. Thank you, to you both.
