Synopsis

Every year over 800,000 people are kidnapped, most never return.

JUNE 11TH, 1972 - A clear sunny day at a New York park as families and children enjoy the day. A mother and father tend to their son as their daughter strays off away from the park drawn to a figure in the distance. Before either parent realizes, their young toddler is mysteriously gone, nowhere to be found.

PRESENT DAY - Blake is a seasoned war veteran and gun for hire. Between Blake’s rough childhood, and years of operation, he’s not one to be messed with. Only after meeting Casey, does Blake learn how to love and care for another, and see the world more peacefully. She turns his life around, convincing Blake to walk away from a life of war and killing.

One night out on the town and at dinner, Casey is taken despite Blake’s attempts at thwarting the kidnappers. Convinced this was not a normal kidnapping, Blake relentlessly works to find out the truth and find his wife, despite authorities showing little care and effort in assisting. Time passes and eventually with help from another victim, Blake learns the devastating truth involving the past 50 years of kidnapped victims. The wealthy and privileged of another parallel world are taking our loved ones to replace theirs, and our government is in on it.

Blake makes it his personal mission to find a way to this new world to get his wife back, no matter the cost. With new help, he finds his way to this new world only to learn that bringing back lost ones will not be as easy as he had hoped as they no longer have memories of their past life. Blake’s battle will pit him against the wealthy purchasers, the new world corporation behind the kidnappings, and even our own government in his attempt at getting his wife back, and his life.

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:

Mirrors is the culmination of years of development. It is a story that has been brewing in my head every since I was in college. I was always frustrated that throughout my life it was very rare to find a movie that both myself and my significant other would both enjoy. I wanted to write a movie that was filled with action, drama AND romance.

Mirrors is actually two ideas I had that eventually combined into one to form a complete story. At the end of the day, it’s a love story. The unstoppable love a man has for his wife surrounded by mystery, action and thrills.

I struggled back and forth on whether to write this as a book vs. a script. I’ve never written either and even took some classes and began the script writing process but eventually realized that I needed a more tangible end result, thus re-focusing on the process of writing it as a book.

The overwhelming positive response I’ve gotten from friends and family on the excitement of the story is just about all the motivation I need, but I’d be lying if my true hope is that someday I finish this book, and someday, I’ll see it on the big screen.

This isn't about making money and to prove my point, I'm donating 20% of book profits to the Hand in Hand children's shelter (http://www.handinhand.org) in Everett, WA. My story's main character follows a similar path as the children that benefit from this organization, and I'm thrilled that I can combine my passion to accomplish writing a book and combine it with giving back to this great organization.

Outline

Prologue - 1972

A typical summer day at a park in New York City, families and their children enjoying the day. A mother and father struggle to manage both of their twin children and lose sight of their young 5 year old daughter who runs off. The child’s attention is drawn by a strange figure, and within seconds disappears followed by the panic of his parents once realizing she is gone.

Chapter 1 – Present Day. Establish main character and his background.

Blake Collier is flawed. We learn of Blake’s rough childhood. One that involves the loss of his parents at a young age and being bounced around foster care system. Blake grows up a misfit, and eventually lands in a place where his misplaced talents can be put to good use. Blake is a war torn hero and we are introduced to the precision, leadership and tenacity of his abilities during his last mission before retiring to a life he never imagined possible. Blake has killed hundreds all in the name of freedom and justice, with little to no emotion. After quickly and easily dispatching a ruthless drug lord and his cronies, Blake returns back home to settle down with the love of his life, Casey. A woman who has shown Blake a new life, having him question how he sees the world, and treats others, one that he begins to embrace.

Chapter 2 – Further establish main character and secondary character (his wife Casey) and their incredible love of each other. Establish how Casey has changed Blake for the good.

Blake met Casey on one of his missions. She was a volunteer doctor in a war torn land. Ironically Casey comes from a similar background, but channeled her struggles in a different way. Casey is the first person that Blake has ever loved. She shows him that there is a life for him that does not involve hurting others to mask his own pain. They have a built a normal life.

Chapter 3 – Casey is taken.

On a seemingly simple date night at a local restaurant, Casey is taken. After excusing herself to go to the restroom, Blake’s instincts kick in and senses trouble and only reaches Casey’s kidnapping a second too late to save her, but soon enough to see that this was no ordinary kidnapping.

Chapters 4 - 6 – 1 year later. Establish how Casey’s disappearance has impacted Blake and what he’s done and is still doing to find her. Introduce the character of Roger, another victim of one of the strange kidnappings.

A year has passed and Blake has refused to give up finding his wife despite local authorities doing so. Blake has painfully reverted back to his earlier personality traits, often going too far in pushing to find answers. Blake believes something is awry involving his wife’s disappearance, and it is confirmed when he meets Roger, another victim of having lost a loved one due to a mysterious kidnapping. Roger has been spending the past 20 years trying to find his missing sister and has stumbled across what he believes not only the answer to where his sister and Blake’s wife is, but perhaps the answer to most of the kidnappings of the past 50 years.

IN THE INTEREST OF NOT RUINING PLOT POINTS AND TWISTS, THE REMAINING OUTLINE IS PURPOSELY BRIEF:

Chapters 7-9 – Blake ups the ante in his search for the truth.

Chapters 10-12 – Blake and Roger come up with the plan and get to the parallel world.

Chapter 13 – We learn about the corporation and technology behind facilitating the kidnappings.

Chapters 14-16 – Blake tries to get acclimated to this new world and start their search while coming across some help.

Chapter 17 – The corporation gets help in tracking down Blake.

Chapters 18-21 – Finding Roger’s Sister

Chapters 21-23 – Blake gets to Casey, but is captured by the corporation in the process.

Chapter 24 – Blake comes face to face with antagonist and learns another truth.

Chapter 25 – Final conflict

Chapter 26 – The truth is revealed.

Chapter 27 – Resolution

Audience

Primary target audience:

• Male
• Married
• Aged 26-45
• Enjoy reading thrillers, mysteries and sci-fi

Description of an ideal primary audience reader:

Rick is 43, married with two kids. He went to college and works as a mid-level executive. Rick loves the grandiose of big sci-fi and epic action thrillers…especially ones that feel more grounded and closer to reality. Books and films that take him to a believable place, but far enough from reality to be fantasy. Rick is drawn to anti-heroes, main characters that are rough around the edges, but are grounded in doing the right thing, albeit braking a few laws along the way if necessary. Although Rick isn’t a huge fan of in your face romance themed stories, he’s a sucker for books and films that have epic love stories as their base. Parallel universes, time travel and space travel all massively appeal to Rick.

Secondary target audience:

• Female
• Married
• Aged 26-45
• Enjoy reading love stories, thrillers, mysteries

Description of an ideal secondary audience reader:

Diane is 38, married with multiple kids. She's educated, and was a stay at home mom until her children got older, and she returned to doing some consulting work. Diane loves to read and goes back and forth between mysteries and thrillers and romance/love stories. Diane loves stories that feel more realistic that she can relate to. She's not a fan of the over the top romance novels, but occasionally will read one or two.

Competition

Dark Matter by Blake Crouc
Publisher: Crown
Publication year: 2016
 
Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human—a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of.

The Breach by Patrick Lee
Publisher: Harper
Publication year: 2009

A novel of unrelenting suspense and nonstop surprises, The Breach immediately rockets author Patrick Lee into the V.I.P. section of the thriller universe. A treat for Jack Bauer (“24”) fans and “X-Files” aficionados, it is a white-knuckle roller-coaster ride that combines the best of Dean Koontz and Michael Crichton with a healthy dollop of Indiana Jones thrown into the mix—the perfect secret agent/government conspiracy/supernatural adventure.

The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower by Stephen King
Publisher: NAL
Publication year: 2003

Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea. Roland is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape. The people he encounters are left behind, or worse—left dead. At a way station, however, he meets Jake, a boy from a particular time (1977) and a particular place (New York City), and soon the two are joined—khef, ka, and ka-tet. The mountains lie before them. So does the man in black and, somewhere far beyond...the Dark Tower.

Replay by Ken Grimwood
Publisher: William Morrow
Publication year: 1998

Jeff Winston, forty-three, didn't know he was a replayer until he died and woke up twenty-five years younger in his college dorm room; he lived another life. And died again. And lived again and died again -- in a continuous twenty-five-year cycle -- each time starting from scratch at the age of eighteen to reclaim lost loves, remedy past mistakes, or make a fortune in the stock market. A novel of gripping adventure, romance, and fascinating speculation on the nature of time, Replay asks the question: "What if you could live your life over again?"

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Publisher: Harper
Publication year: 2014

Cloud Atlas meets Orphan Black in this epic dimension-bending trilogy by New York Times best selling author Claudia Gray about a girl who must chase her father's killer through multiple dimensions. Marguerite Caine's physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite's father is murdered, and the killer—her parent's handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him. Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul's guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father's death is far more sinister than she expected. A Thousand Pieces of You explores an amazingly intricate multi-universe where fate is unavoidable, the truth elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.

Mirrors shares similarities with these books in that they all use a parallel universe or dimension as part of their story arc. They also all contain strong main characters that face a struggles and decisions to be made that will impact both not only their own selves and those around them, but both worlds they encounter. Where Mirrors differentiates is on a couple levels. First, the technological differences between both worlds are more subtle. The parallel universe in Mirrors is not that vastly different than the original one with the exception of a handful of technological advances around transportation, weaponry, energy and of course travel between both worlds. The extreme similarities between both worlds will allow for interesting story telling and complex main and secondary character dynamics as they deal with those similarities.

In addition, Mirrors at its core is a love story. It’s the story of a man who will go to any lengths to find his wife. This includes his internal struggle between reverting to his old combative/ruthless self vs. maintaining

i2i Publishing logo i2i Publishing

i2i Publishing was founded by Lionel Ross who is himself the published author of eight books. He knows, only too well, the almost impossible task confronting a new author when he seeks to find a book publishing company. Writers devote months and years of their lives to crafting and creating books devoted to the education and entertainment of unseen others. They then discover that their beloved manuscript is just a piece of often worthless merchandise in the eyes of the vast majority of book publishing companies. New authors receive countless numbers of rejection letters from the mainstream publishers who prefer to play it safe with either established authors or celebrity authored books. Finally new writers turn in desperation to the so-called Vanity market. There they are promised, in return for vast sums of money, that their book will be published.

Now there is another way, the i2i way. We DO ask for a small financial contribution towards costs but only on a SHARED RISK basis. And after that initial payment, the risk is all ours. We know from personal experience that most new authors are not 'made of money.'

We are always open to submissions and promise a quick response, be it positive or negative.

We are NOT a self-publishing organisation - rather a partnership between Author and Publisher and where your book, if accepted, will have an internationally recognised imprint - i2i

If you want to see your book on bookshop shelves and on the websites of electronic booksellers worldwide just ask us to consider your manuscript.

Virtualbookworm Publishing logo Virtualbookworm Publishing

Virtualbookworm (VBW) Publishing was founded by a writer frustrated by the long wait time and occasional heartbreak often associated with the publishing industry. After researching the various "alternatives," he discovered a number of subsidy publishers that would publish any author ... for a price. Unfortunately, many reviewers (and readers) thumb their noses at books from such houses, since all it takes is cash to get published by them.

Then he discovered self publishing and the endless opportunities it presented. However, such a venture requires countless hours of research of printers, proofreaders, artists, etc. And after publication, even more time is consumed trying to market the book.

So, Virtualbookworm.com was established as a "clearinghouse" for authors, since it offers virtually everything under one roof. Although we now charge setup and design fees, those costs are kept to a minimum so as to cover all expenses. And, as with "traditional" publishers, we carefully review each manuscript and only offer contracts to authors who truly have exceptional manuscripts. We don't print garbage, and we want our authors to proudly say they were published by Virtualbookworm. If we accept your book for publication, you can rest assured that it will be sold next to other quality books, and not just work that had enough money behind it. And, you'll receive some of the best royalties in the business!

Since our initial costs are so low, we want your books to sell as much as you do.
