It's one of the reasons I've been SOOOOO damned quiet on this website for so long. I've been working on it in top secret. Why so secret? Because,truth be told, the world moves quickly these days and *ideas* have to be kept in a dark place where no one can see them until you're ready to unleash them on the world, or...surprise, surprise...someone beats you to the draw.
So what am I allowed to tell you about ReMade? It's a trilogy. It's for more mature teens. It's a cross between the scifi movie classic THE THING and Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD.
I'm not gonna lie...it's grim and gross. Starting with the first page.
Imagine a virus that can absorb all creatures it touches, transform it into a gooey, slurping biomass which it can reform into anything provided it has a DNA template to work from. (okay...so far, very much THE THING). Let's go further, imagine the virus is gradually developing a 'collective mind' that can think...can learn...is gradually learning about this new world it's been released into. Imagine this virus is able to overcome every species barrier...it can absorb ANY living thing, animals, plants, bacteria!!!
Now...imagine you, and a tiny minority of others, are the only ones who appear to be immume to it. There must be a reason why just the few of you aren't being absorbed. Why? What commonality do you few people share? What variable do you have in common? Is this variable permanent, perhaps hereditary? Or...is it just temporary? Is it something you're doing? Wearing? Thinking? Feeling?
You better find out before the virus does.
And you better make sure....whatever it is you're doing to keep from being liquidized, that you keep on doing it.
