NEW from Tawny Stokes (my fave YA author) CARNIVAL WORLD

Carnival World 
Episode 1
For six teens and one young boy, an innocent ride at a summer carnival becomes a harrowing trip into another dimension where everything they've ever known has been destroyed and everyone they’ve ever loved are gone.  Now they have to travel a road through a harsh and unreal world where mutated creatures hunt them and a mysterious man with an ugly scar dogs their every move.  Guided by the Barker in their dreams, they each must face their past enabling them to perform a task in the present that will help them find a way home.  Every game played is a piece closer to solving the puzzle.
 
For Darien, the Strong Man, Nicole, the Tightrope Walker, Maddie and Justin, the Conjoined Twins, Summer, the Escape Artist, and little Sam, the Fortune Teller, dreams are lost, nightmares are real and Carnival World is the place they need to survive if they want to make it back home.

Please be aware this is Episode 1 about 16K words, 40 pages with 10 episodes planned.
