CONTINUE WRITING THE POLITICAL SAGA OF NATE SCHICK

A mysterious man called Nate Schick runs for president, backed by dark money nobody can trace and a vast network. Where did he come from, and what does he want? With America on the brink of a civil war and culture descending into complete insanity, Shick looks like he could be the answer to everyone’s prayers. But he has his own agenda, and his home planet has a completely different plan for what he’ll do once he’s in the Oval Office.

INTRODUCTION

The line stretched several hundred meters out from the Holden Hills High School auditorium, a susurrus of cheers rising up into the late summer heat as a black limousine swung into view. A bulky firefighter hoisted his sign as high as his pudgy body would allow, and a screaming blond woman tried to run to touch the vehicle, blocked at the last minute by a slim Secret Service man towering over her. Slowly, the chant of the crowd became discernible…

“Nom..i..nate, Nate! Nom..i…nate Nate!”

The limousine had disappeared into some back entrance and curious onlookers including some teenagers were crowding around with their cells trying to get a pic of the man of the hour. They might have caught the cuff of his pants at most. Nate Schick was known to walk fast. And he’d moved faster up the ranks of the political game than anyone had ever expected, including in his own Democrat party. 

Where did his funding come from? Where exactly did he come from? 

The talking heads on TV were making hay while the sun shined, speculating to high heaven about who exactly this Nate Schick was and why his record was so spotty. They wanted to know how he’d built a vast network of contacts across the country, how he had more dark money pouring in than Sauron and where exactly he’d gotten such a commanding grasp of politics. Was this guy a Manchurian candidate or the next great hope for the left? 

But for the swelling crowd of teachers, firefighters, small town office workers and curious high schoolers on the late August day, these questions were the furthest thing from their minds. They didn’t care who Nate Shick was or where he was from. They just thought his whispy blond mustache was hilarious and that his new plan to save the economy by eliminating gender and work was absolutely brilliant. They finally had purpose in their lives, and it was all thanks to this strange little man. 

Nominate Nate.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Think you’ve got what it takes to be an author writing a political thriller? We’re here to help you achieve your dreams.

Getting started is easy.  Sign up for a free account at Next Chapters and follow the Schick for President campaign in Alienated, a novel already in progress on our writing platform.  Then write and add your next chapter to the story. 

While the plot and characters are outlined to help guide writers collaborating on this novel, you have complete creative liberty on your chapter, taking the story on whatever path you wish.  You can suggest any change to characters or the plot that fits your vision for the rest of the story.

Your work will be read and considered for approval as an official chapter of this novel; meanwhile check some other great works on our platform and craft additional chapters there too.  Or start that great story inside you waiting to be told for others to join in and write alongside you.  If you’d like help improving your writing craft on this novel or one of your own, we can help there too.

If your chapter is accepted as a part of this novel, you will share in any profits generated from publishing and selling Alienated.  

And don’t worry about rejection!  If the editors decide to go in a different path than your submitted chapter, you will have the option to continue writing a copy of Alienated using the chapters including yours to finish and complete writing your story.

F.A.Q.

How much does it cost?

Registration on the Next Chapters writers’ platform is free.  While we have some paid writing services you may opt to buy, it’s perfectly possible to start and finish your book at no cost to you.  Participation in Alienated and dozens of other novels is also free – no cost for a Next Chapters account as well as being free for you to participate in writing this novel!

Will I be paid for my work?

Yes!  For every novel completed and published on our platform, authors are compensated a percent of the profits earned based on their contributions to the novel!

What if my chapter isn't selected for inclusion into
Alienated?

Maybe your storyline doesn’t fit the idea set by the editors for this book, or perhaps someone else’s chapter was chosen instead of yours.  No worries!

If your chapter isn’t selected to be included in this work, you will be able to take the story – using your chapter –  as a separate novel in progress, with you as the editor of this new version.  You can use all the prior chapters in your book, so you can complete your version of the story behind Nate’s campaign for president.

Similar to the original book, if your novel gets completed and generates a profit, you and all the participating authors will receive a share of that revenue.

I need help with something not mentioned on this page.

While we can’t fit everything on one page, we’ve never seen a problem that we couldn’t help overcome.  Send us an email with any question or comment and we’ll get back to you!
