Growing up, one of my favorite genres was Choose Your Own Adventure. It was like a videogame in print: you get to make choices, steer your character in certain directions, and in the end you reached different endings based on the decisions you'd made. I would spend hours reading them, going through the various story branches again and again no matter how many times I'd already done it.
The biggest problem was that there weren't enough CYOA books. After reading a book a dozen times through I would beg my parents to take me to the bookstore so I could check the shelves for new releases. And every time the shelves remained devoid of fresh content.
With that in mind, I'm ridiculously excited to announce: Ultimate Ending.
Ultimate Ending books are like Choose Your Own Adventure books on steroids! They feature:
- Exciting plots
- Richly detailed stories
- Clever riddles
- Challenging puzzles
- Mysteries to solve, via clue-gathering
- Get out of trouble mechanisms (die rolls, coin flips, etc...)
- Dozens of satisfying endings
- And of course, in each book, one Ultimate Ending!
Along with my writing partner Danny McAleese (who many of you may remember as Vozzek from his days as a LOST recapper) we're releasing the first six books today, with more to come every few months. The series is appropriate for ages 12-18, but is just as enjoyable for adults. We're giving the Choose Your Own Adventure genre a much-needed shot of adrenaline, and know you will enjoy the ride!
You can check out the series website here, or go straight to Amazon below. Although the books are available in digital format, they look fantastic in print. Happy adventuring!
