“Happy New Year” from the Cast of The Missing Five

01 Jan

The Missing Five Cover SmashwordYou question our use of the word “cast.” We don’t care that we are not actors in a play, film, or television show. Well not yet; but we are counting on it happening some day soon.

At this moment in time, we don’t care that we are fictional characters in Gwen Pegram’s debut novel, The Missing Five. Yes, she created us; but, YOU, her fans, breathed life into us by reading her book, enjoying our antics, even commiserating with us and giving her feedback on what you want to see in her sequel.

Oh yeah, did she neglect to mention it? There will be a sequel in 2014, and who knows, maybe a trilogy in 2015. You see, we enjoy being a figment of her imagination and our dream is to be on the big screen.

Our plan is to hound her in all of 2014 on marketing to get our name out there so we can become as real as she imagined us to be. And guess what, it’s working too because a little birdie informed us that she is entering her debut novel, The Missing Five, in three book awards for 2014–The Foreword Book of the Year Award, the Indie Book Award, and Writer’s Digest Book Award. These awards are for indie authors who published a novel in 2013.

This is how confident she is in herself and how much she believes in us, her fictional characters. And you already know that once she has a dream, there’s no stopping her.

We leave with you, her fans, a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.”

And, that’s our goal.

Happy New Year.
