I have something exciting to tell you about today. A whole new (FREE!) way to enjoy a story. Last year Big World Network started up:
BigWorldNetwork.com began in early 2011, created to offer a distinct and entertaining way to read and enjoy both fiction and non-fiction in an episodic format, not unlike a television series. The concept is unique in today’s world of tablet readers and mobile devices, but not new. Series writing has been around since before the 1800s, and many authors have gotten their start by publishing with serialized installments (including Charles Dickens).The average BigWorldNetwork.com episode is between 4-7 pages, the perfect length to sit back and relax while catching up on your favorite series. BigWorldNetwork.com has also created an exciting, creative outlet for our writers. Many works published on BigWorldNetwork.com will go on to be published as complete eBook and print anthologies in the future.
What I think is particularly cool about The Big World Network is that they have audio chapters to their books, too! Just in case you’re more of the podcast type!
Today I’m featuring “The Secret” by Taryn Taylor.
Seventeen-year-old Delanie Hart has a past she wants to keep hidden. Moving to a new state and attending a new high school seems to be just the thing – until she accidentally sees a mark exactly like her own. When the people she is running from come after her, Lanie is left with a choice – give up what she wants or save her friends.
I’ve just started reading this, and I’m very curious to know what Lanie’s secret is. She’s a very relatable character already, and I’m curious to know just what her secret is, especially since she doesn’t seem to be the only one with that secret!
The secret has already finished one “season” of 12 episodes and is coming back for Season 2 on Monday, so don’t miss it!
Taryn Taylor grew up moving from small town to small town every few years. This helped her gain an appreciation for good books, loyal friends, and the fact that a home is a lot more than a house – it’s the people that love you. After receiving a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Communications, she finally began putting all of her stories down on paper, finding it most helpful to eat chocolate during this process. In between raising four amazing boys she loves to go on dates with her husband and watch movies late into the night.
