My Totally Twisted Secret Project

With the release date of CREED rapidly approaching, Lindsay and I have been fielding questions about what our co-authored voice sounds like,  how psychologically twisted our collective mind is, and do I need to read all of your co-authored pieces with the lights on?

Rather than simply answer those questions, we thought we’d take it one step further and actually show you! We toyed with writing a prequel-type novella to set the stage for CREED, but you know us…why write a novella to CREED when you can give them an entirely different book to enjoy!

After much discussion with our agents and an enthusiastic ‘go for it’ from our publisher, we have decided to utilize Wattpad to give the world a sneak peek at what they can expect from our co-authored voice. So here it is, a new, psychologically twisted, co-authored YA Thriller.

 “The darkness would've scared me years ago, but not anymore. If you couldn't see it,
 then you didn't know it was there to be afraid of.”
~Jake Holloway, SILO

About SILO: 
A year after a solar storm plunges the world into total darkness, seventeen-year-old Jake Holloway finds himself holed-up in an abandoned, cold-war missile silo with two of his high school friends, Keith Pressman and Evan Jensen. Stranded with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, they are fighting for survival against a society that has turned on itself. 
When their desperation for food and additional supplies reaches an unbearable level, they are forced to go topside. They plan to slip into the surrounding silos undetected, taking only what they need. But their moral code of not taking from the living comes crashing down when they find the unthinkable—a girl, Meredith, bloodied and bruised, huddled into the corner and refusing to speak or move.  
Haunted by her broken frame and vacant eyes, Jake can’t stomach leaving her behind to fend for herself.  Foregoing the supplies they originally came her, Jake brings her home, promising her safety. But it isn't long before Meredith’s presence triggers a series of unexplainable attacks which turn their underground haven into nothing more than a steel trap. Soon, protecting Meredith becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse…one in which not everyone will survive.  

Starting today, we will be sharing a chapter a week of our co-authored book, SILO, on Wattpad for the world to enjoy, hate, question our sanity, run screaming from… The last chapter of the book will drop the week of November 8th, the same week CREED releases!
So, go forth and be appropriately frightened as you realize just what our twisted minds of capable of.  Spread the word, leave a comment on Wattpad or simply enjoy the book in the dark confines of your own home. And remember to follow the book on Wattpad, so you can be notified when new content goes up!
