About

The Sanction Chronicles:

A Young Adult Series that comes out in serial installments every month. Readers follow students throughout their school year in the all Paranormal town of Sanction New Hampshire. The books will be available in ebook, print, and audio books and supported on our Sanction Blog. 

Goal:

Provide a full year of access for readers to The Sanction Chronicles Paranormal Young Adult Series. We will be reaching out with e-books, print, our blog, and social media. We want to create an online world that can be visited daily. Your support will help us keep our blog and social media running and posting new content multiple times a day starting September 1, 2011 - June 2012.

- Short Stories

- Posts from the authors and characters

- Art Work

- Deleted and extended scenes from the books and characters only found on the blog

Who is Involved:

We are 30+ authors, bloggers, teenage test readers, and everyone who has contributed to the blog and books.

For the majority of the authors this will be their first book ever, many are learning by writing exclusive stories for the blog. We want to give them the opportunity to build their name as we grow with Sanction.

What the Money is For:

We are releasing 10 ebooks between September 2011 and June 2012. The blog is constantly supporting that. So our Goal is $5,000 and our dream is $10,000 for - 

- Web Hosting - Online Support

- Original Artwork for the Series

- Copyrighting the Books and Blog Stories

- Formatting Original stories from the Blog for e-readers.

- To make sure we can run for all of Year 1 (Sept.-June) - Give our students their school year.

Project Details 

Welcome to the town of Sanction New Hampshire, one of the three largest all supernatural towns in the United States!

 This is where our Young Adult Series is set and here is what makes us different from other projects that have created Paranormal Series.

We are following our characters in real time throughout their school year. Readers can interact with the characters and the authors on a daily basis.

Oh and we have authors. Seven so far in the books being published and another twenty writing original content for The Sanction Chronicles blog. We are all working hard to make this project interesting, interactive, and offer great free reads and content.

So what do I mean by the series running in real time?

 I mean that we treat Sanction and Wind Haven High School like a real town and the characters as real people living day to day through Social Media and our blog. We release one e-book a month following the main story line- a whole month seen from the point of view of three characters. As the events unfold in the book the blog shows the town and their reaction. On the day of an event from the book we write and address the events in real time.

I will not list a spoiler, but 11:30pm EST Halloween night something happens in Sanction. 11:31 students begin posting tweets, discussing it on Facebook, and more. There is more to the town than we can possibly show in the books themselves. We want readers to interact with the town and the characters so we have started a massive undertaking. Creating a town.
