Development Pitch

I envision this story as a TV series (animated or live-action) done to usher in a new era of entertainment for people looking for an in-your-face fantasy that captures all beats and doesn't shy away. It's a fresh concept, easy to follow on the surface, but also has profound meanings for those who like to dig deeper. It's a simple flower with complex roots. Thematic Layers: At its heart, it's a coming of age tale with young adults living life as they normally do but coursing through its veins are terrifying aliens, ill-willed corporations, mystifying magic, and symbolic spirituality, which flow into an engaging and well-written mode of storytelling. Inclusiveness: African-American, German, Latino, Alien hybrid, male, female, so forth. The story is inclusive of a variety of different racial backgrounds. Mysteriousness: The story is spectacular, spoon-feeding the audience with bits and pieces of information like a puzzle waiting to be completed. It pulls in lovers of fantasy, explorers of science fiction, and the sleuths of cosmic mystery. There's a little bit of something in here for everyone. Marketability: Due to the story's magical concepts and items, proposed other worlds, large roster, and other expansions beyond the first book, it has the potential to extend its own reaches into other mediums and merchandising. The fact that it features young protagonists makes the story easy to follow and usage of language is very modern and relatable. Characters are believable.

About The Author

In 2016, J.J. Angel was a part of an anthology called Voices from the Bayou, in which he loaned his words on several troubling events that year in Louisiana. The Great Flood of 2016, the shooting of Alton Sterling, and three deaths of police officers. His written portion titled, “Still Water Runs Deep” is about an outward conflict clashing with his own inner conflict, both as a flood victim and a misguided African American male. JJ prefers to write stories focusing on the supernatural with spiritual awareness intertwined somewhere in the plot. Warriors of Potentia is his most developed work with one completed book and more follow-ups on the way.
