The Luminaries



The forest is dangerous for a Luminary untrained…


On the day of Winnie Wednesday’s sixteenth birthday, she expects to be initiated into the vast world of the Luminaries—a global organization charged with fighting nightmares that terrorize the world each night.

But when the Dianas, a group of witches and the Luminaries’ mortal enemy, get to Winnie first, she finds herself caught between preserving everything she has ever known…

Or the total destruction of it.

On June 2, 2019, I started a “choose your own story” on Twitter based on an urban fantasy project I tried to sell in 2013. I never could have guessed how much the story would explode from there!

With thousands of people participating, The Luminaries grew into an entire online community. Each day, I added to the story, and readers vote on which action they want Winnie take.

On December 10, just over six months after the story began, we finally reached The End. But don’t worry! This isn’t the final end for the Luminaries. Winnie and the gang will return one day in published book form. 😉

Part of an ancient order called the Luminaries, Winnie and thousands of others protect the world from 14 spirits that slumber beneath the earth.

I, Susan, promise I won’t email you for any other reason. It will ONLY be for Luminaries-related updates, and I won’t share your email with anyone.

The Twitter story begins on June 2, 2019 and continues in a single thread all the way up to the last installment in December!
