The next Story Adventure!

It's almost here! Cas Lester has posted her prologue, to get you warmed up for the official start 22 September 2014.

Cas writes the HARVEY DREW AND THE BIN MEN FROM OUTER SPACE series and she will be posting a new chapter of her third HARVEY DREW book every Monday, and YOU have to help. Or the Evil Editor will be very mean to Cas!

If your idea gets used, your user name will get printed in the back of the book when it is published. We're also going to build a ship's manual for the Toxic Spew with your help, which will also be included in the actual book.
