A couple of years ago, I learned about something called “Postcard Pitching” at a writing event. This is where you condense your idea for a story into few enough words for it to fit on the back of a postcard. I’ve decided to do this for a series of stories (aimed at children of 8-11) that I’ve started to write and hope to get published. It’s somewhat appropriate for this time of year, so here goes.
Far, far away in space lies the mystical world of Uto. Its home star, Sapienta Centauri, is the source of all intelligence in the galaxy and Uto’s rulers, the Guardians of Wisdom, have been its protectors for millions of years.
Now the Guardians face a new and terrifying threat. The cruel tyrant Arctos, ruler of the planet Vargul, seeks to claim Sapienta Centauri for his own and gain untold power over all the lifeforms in the galaxy.
Seeking a new ally in their fight against this threat, the Guardians of Wisdom turn to Earth. There eight reindeer who you all know of are tired of their old life. The Guardians take them to Uto, give them new bodies, knowledge and training. Once there to serve all the children on Earth, they now protect not only them, but all children in the galaxy. They are…
THE DEER STARS!!!
