An original publication. These are the first three 25,000-word volumes of a nine-volume Young Adult serial with mystery, romance and missing memories. The three volumes together equal the length of a traditional book.
Volume One of the Dead Ringers serial
Jade’s memories of the two days she went missing are slowly returning, but they involve a blinding headache and an evil clown with a syringe. Not exactly the stuff of sanity.
Volume Two of the Dead Ringers serial
Max insists Jade’s best chance to find out why she remembers so little of her abduction is to team up with him. But can she trust him?
Volume Three of the Dead Ringers serial
Someone in Midway Beach isn’t who they seem and unless Jade and Max can figure out what’s going on, they could become the next victims.
Targeted Age Group:: Young Adult
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After more than thirty print-published books, I’m going indie with the nine-volume Dead Ringers serial. An author has to go where the idea takes her. I kept picturing a teenage girl who knew she’d been abducted but had no memory of what happened. I adore books set in the real world with one skewed element that takes the story in an eerie direction.
Each volume is about 25,000 words, notably longer than the installments in most serials. Three volumes together are the length of a traditional novel.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Jade Greene, my heroine, won’t give up no matter what. She’s modeled after all the strong women I know.
About the Author:
Darlene Gardner no longer spends her days waiting for an athlete to say something interesting. Nope. Now she makes up her own quotes and torments people. Fictional people. Promise.
Although leaving her life as a newspaper sportswriter behind for love and romance worked out pretty well, she’s veered off in a haunting new direction with the Dead Ringers eBook serial, landing at an beachside carnival where evil lurks and nothing is as it seems.
Darlene has more than thirty books in print, from single-title romantic comedies to emotionally charged family dramas. Updated editions of her romcoms, as well as a couple romantic mysteries, are available for the eBook market.
