I’ve dropped a few hints, but here is the first official notice about, Solitude, an upcoming serialized suspense Twitter-fiction by yours truly. Sign up now to follow at http://www.twitter.com/solitude_story! You can see the first trailer here!
Solitude will track the communiqués of a man who starts off in an ordinary government job, only to have things so frighteningly wrong all of a sudden. The interactive prologue begins on 20 May 2009, so make sure you sign up early and pass the word. On 1 June, the story will officially begin with updates nearly every day throughout the course of the summer. The story will conclude on 20 August.
The prologue segment is outlined, but it is also open to interaction. The main character of the story will respond to your questions , comments, and messages, and the readers will have a chance to influence the development of the context for the story proper. Each day in real-time will pass as a day in the main character’s life.
The main story will take place over the course of a single day, spread out for the readers over the source of fifteen weeks.
Make sure to sign on as a follower early, because everyone who signs up before the prologue is over will be automatically entered for the chance to win one of five signed, spiral-bound copies of the full text of Solitude at the conclusion of the tale.
It’s going to be exciting, so make sure you don’t miss it!
