The Karada

 

Every choice we make has a consequence. Even the ones made in other realities.

After the death of her beloved Gran (the last warden of this reality), Emma begins to experience terrifying lapses as she unconsciously crosses the threshold into other realities – realities in which she has made very different choices. Even dangerous ones. Meanwhile across the world, a hard-living hipster has found a way to jump from one reality to another, randomly intersecting and falling in love with Emma. With both a dark figure and a supernatural being wrestling in an attempt to control them, Emma and David attempt to collapse the bubbles of the multiverse into one in an attempt to hold their reality together.

Here is a teaser for The Karada, a transmedia production created with Tom Liljeholm, Jakob Berglund, and James Martin.

All Your Fates

All Your Fates

 

After being rebuffed by the girl of his dreams, David Blunt seeks second, third and fourth chances with her various alter egos that he’s found through a rift in the walls of the multiverse.

The Karada team is pleased to announce the launch of a prequel novel to the TV Drama: All Your Fates, released Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Recognizing that Wattpad is to text what Youtube is to video, the creators of All Your Fates plan to push the envelope by running the serialized novel like a TV series: with a cabal of guest writers, special scenes scored with music, key actors cast, and chapters set in real life locations for cross-promotional partnerships.

The fictional story will also have plenty of Easter Eggs for hard-core fans who want a richer more immersive experience to hunt down. If a website is mentioned in the story, the website will actually live online for some fun fictional bonus content.

The novel is a supernatural thriller/romance with a suggested rating of PG 13. The first chapter is set to be released on Wattpad on September 26. Two chapters a week will be released until project end. To read more visit: The Wattpad Insider or visit The Karada.com.

The Karada is a co-production between Queen Spade Creative, Tom Liljeholm, and Jim Martin.
