Welcome to the new home of all things “Unmasked”, my modern superhero short story about unexpected superhero giftings and looking for the value in your own unique gift.
Currently, Emery’s story is shaping up to be a much bigger world, with two sequels tentatively titled “Unbound” and “Untamed” in the works. If you enjoyed Emery, Jana, and Carter and their superhero high school world — stay tuned!
Since Unmasked is now published (see below!), I don’t want to share a copy of it freely on the internet as I did on the forum, but you can find on the forum here: https://forum.oneyearnovel.com/topic/48286-unmasked-ss/.
Email me if you’d like to keep up with new developments; I’m hoping to put together a group for Unmasked fans.
About the Stories
Unmasked (2961 words)
“If the masks came down, what would you see?”
Emery just wants a power like everyone else so she can finally make a difference. But when it finally comes, it’s more disappointing than anything. She wants to believe she can make a difference, but first she has to find the value in her own gift.
Unbound (9938 words)
“In a world of masks, who do you trust?”
Emery takes a risk to hone her abilities, leaving Jana and Carter behind. But it may cost her more than she bargained for.
