Author Extraordinaire, Hugh Howey,, put out the challenge in 2014 for writers to band together to write in the same universe. Amanda A. Allen along with 7 other amazing authors took up the challenge. We spent a year building out a fictional planetary system, complete with a massive world narrative featuring multiple peoples, languages, and storylines as well as detailed maps and a large amount of research into advances in Space Elevator, EmDrive, Ford-Svaiter Mirror, and spaceship technologies.
In addition, we came together with a clear goal: the Paradisi Project is an open-source world, meaning any author who wishes to join in may write any story they wish. Thus far, we have written in a variety of genres: YA romance, a contemporary romance, two action-adventures, a coming-of-age action-adventure, and two near-future scifi novells are on offer coming up September 1.

Thank you, Hugh, and we hope we make you proud!
