And the Winner Is....

Entry #3! Letters to the 5th Direction submitted by BellaVida

Congratulations BellaVida!! I'm most definitely looking forward to working with you!! :) Please email me at so that we might begin discussing the particulars.

I'm excited about the possibilities and can't wait to see what you've got imagined for each 'episode' of the serial!

For those of you who would like a refresher on which entry this was, here are the details:

Genre: Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Horror

Time Period: now

Main Character: Juliana
Juliana’s a 12 year old girl who has just inherited a trunk from her beloved grandmother’s abandoned attic. Among old photos and embroidery appears a box of letters her grandmother wrote to Juliana before passing. While reading the letters Juliana accidentally opens the 5th Direction, the super highway to other worlds.

Villain: Murcielaga
Created during the era of the first humans, Murcielaga, is one of the oldest banished creatures. She resides in the world where imaginary beings are kept so as not to harm humans.

What’s at stake: Murcielaga is angry she has been banished for so long. She is deploying her henchmen by the dozens through the 5th Direction into other worlds to create havoc. As revenge she is erasing and controlling people’s memories once she sneaks into their imagination. The history of the human race is about to be lost forever.
Each week we read another letter that leads our heroine into and out of peril. To further complicate the situation, her grandmother suffered from Alzheimer’s causing clues to be out of order, have mixed up names and clues written in different languages.

I hope everyone is as excited to read the first one as I am! :)

Congratulations again, BellaVida! :)
