We look for series that demonstrate intelligent, original takes on traditional forms and address timely social issues. The economic model of digital publishing allows Plympton to take creative risks that more expensive mainstream formats could not support.
Our first series, released September 2012, are available exclusively in the Kindle Serial store. But you don’t need a Kindle to read them. You can download the free Kindle app for your computer, smartphone, or tablet here.
The Many Lives of Lilith Lane, by E.V. Anderson
Seventeen-year-old Lilith Lane has a hunk of a boyfriend, a wicked tongue, and a talent for solving the mysteries that pop up in her small home town of Mirabalis. But when her little sister goes missing in the middle of the night, both Lilith’s detective skills and her recall of sophomore year physics are put to the ultimate test.
To save her sister, Lilith must race against the clock with the help of Dr. Hammer, a mad scientist who pushes Lilith off the edge – literally – of his reality-bending skyscraper. Lilith’s world is turned upside down by her sister’s disappearance, and a skyscraper that is also a portal to a parallel universe suddenly doesn’t seem that surreal. With Dr. Hammer’s help, Lilith must put her girl detective skills to the test and try to save her sister.
A dashing snail expert, a scheming beauty queen, and the heir to a great advertising fortune are just a few of the unforgettable characters who round out the cast in this rollicking tale of love, loyalty, and multiple Earths.
