My Third Published Story: Parallel Jump

Cameron D Garriepy, short story, novella, ebook, YA fictionI’m pleased to announce that my third self-published work, Parallel Jump, is now available from Amazon as a Kindle download or—for you Prime members—free borrow.

This project is dear to my heart. I wrote it as a Bar Mitzvah gift for my friend J. It’s a young adult fantasy/sci-fi/light steampunk novella set partially in Boston and partially… elsewhere.

For the print purists among you, I chose to publish Parallel Jump simultaneously as an ebook and as a paperback. It’s available through my CreateSpace store and through Amazon.

From the Amazon description:

Fourteen year old Jack Snow is late for baseball practice when a unusual young woman and her brother cross his path. Jack knows answering Calliope and Phineas’s call for help means he won’t make it to practice, but he cannot imagine how far from home he will end up as a result. When a mysterious force draws him through a crack in reality, leaving his two new acquaintances stranded behind, Jack, Phineas, and Calliope must all make their way amongst strangers to find their way home.

At nearly 14,000 words, this short work is only the beginnings of my explorations into this fictional universe. Come along with me, and imagine what could be. It’s my hope that while this was written for a clever teenaged boy, there’s no one who can’t enjoy this story.

  5. I know I’m usually wordy so I hope you will understand the meaning packed in these four relatively simple words:

    You. Are. Doing. It.

    (Oh yeah.)

  6. Can’t wait to hold it!

  7. It sounds fabulous, Cameron: I expect Maddie will want to have a read, she loves stuff like that: all the best as it goes out there into the world….

  8. It has been a long time since I was a young adult,but this was still a truly great read! I’m already looking forward to the next installment. The story draws you in,and your skill as a wordsmith is amazing as always. Our Jack may have been the inspiration,but you are,as always, an inspiration for me.Yours is a gift to be proud of, as you are a daughter I am always proud of.
