Time Angel Interactive Book Project
Students, I have posted a draft of my new book, Time Angel. But I know I’ve made mistakes. And I know you can help me tell the story better. Let me know if you find spelling or punctuation errors. Are there parts of the story that are confusing to you? Do you have some ideas for me about how to make my plot, my character or the world of the book come alive? Are you an artist? Send me some illustrations.
Although I can’t promise to include illustrations in my book, I will post them on my website.
Post your comments on my website by October 15, 2013 or email me your comments and/or illustrations. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
By posting on my website or emailing me your comments, you agree that I can include your first name and school name in the back of Time Angel when it is published in 2013 and that you are giving me the use of your ideas to help me make the book better.
Technology is so cool. I can’t wait to write the very first interactive book with students. If you and your classroom get engaged in this project, ask your teacher to invite me to Skype with you. I look forward to meeting you over Skype.
Happy reading and thanks for your help!

“White…subtly poses questions surrounding advancements in technology and capitalism in this well-imagined and disturbing future….Readers will be eager for the sequel, so they can learn more about the logic of Chronos time travel and follow the next steps in Shama’s fateful journey. ”Kirkus Review, May 2011
“Tell me a story, Dad.” “Once upon a time, there was a girl who was born out of time.” “What does that mean?” the boy asked. “She was a Time Angel. She could travel back and forth without damage to herself or to time.” “Is the girl real?” “A legend.” “But legends are real?” A [...]
Chronos Academy 0001 hours The sign on the wall read Quarantine. No visitors allowed; still, Shama Katooee sensed a presence, people watching her. She could hear voices, so faint they sounded like thoughts, chattering away in her head. So faraway, they could be colonists on Venus. She lay on the clinic bed, her long hair [...]
