Overview

VOYA PERFECT TENS AWARD

CYGNUS AWARD FINALIST

DANTE ROSSETTI AWARD FINALIST

Neworld Papers is brimming with action, adventure, and a touch of New Adult romance grounded solidly in thought-provoking science fiction.

Is revealing the truth worth the disruption of a society?

Fallon lives in a peaceful world that has no concept of war, or murder, or even love. It is a society that prohibits histories and pledges itself to "The Service of Today and the Building of Tomorrow."

Just weeks before he reaches adulthood, Fallon is torn from his sheltered life as a ward of the state. He is drawn into a subversive group that needs his secret talents and he quickly becomes a chronicler of discoveries that threaten to destroy the very fabric of Neworld.

Can Fallon handle the weight of the new responsibilities thrust upon him while he navigates relationships with the feisty redhead Aidan and raven-haired beauty Lenore?

This volume includes first two Neworld stories: The Historian's Tale and The Warriors' Tale. You might want to check out the reviews for those books when considering purchasing this book.

About the Author

Keith (KB) Shaw spent the first 15 years of his adult life as a theater designer, director, teacher, playwright and, occasionally, bit actor. He secretly dreamed of winning an Oscar or Emmy for Best Screenplay. Early on, he learned "a great play isn't written, it's rewritten." He discovered that he drew greater satisfaction from writing fiction than from writing plays and screenplays.

For the last 20 years, he has been writing for the education market, completing more than 1,200 lessons, interactive modules, and educational video scripts, most for the world's largest education company, Pearson. Shaw also hosted live educational broadcasts into K-12 classrooms across the country.

His education writing experience instilled in him a concern for the reluctant male reader, which is now a part of his writing DNA. It also led Shaw to found The Spectrum Children's Book Club in 1996. The website, which was cited in The Chronicle for Higher Education, ran for over a decade. It reviewed books and published short stories by such writers as Bruce Coville, David Lubar, Orson Scott Card, and Pete Hautman.

Shaw's goal is to write YA fiction that can entertains, enlightens, and appeals to both boys and girls. He is the author of two YA science fiction series: Neworld Papers and From the Shadows [ISBN: 978-0-692-97715-6] and numerous short stories. Shadows started as a web series on the Spectrum and drew more than 20,000 readers.
