Development Pitch

We (both collaborators) see this as a 3-part movie series, but we're working on new stories that will spinoff from this trilogy, which might be viable for a tv series. Every book in the trilogy continues to up the stakes and develop the arcs of all character from Rayen to the antagonist (villain on future planet). The story is built like a thriller with a powerful ending to tie up the entire series, because that's how we write our individual books. This trilogy has been touted by adults as something they wished they'd read as a teen and enjoyed by all ages. We really didn't know we had something for a universal audience until we started hearing from kids as young as an 11 year old boy to adults in their late 30s, 40s, 50s and a 60 year old couple who wrote us. No one reads Time Trap without reading all of them and many write us asking about future stories in this world. Even though we each started out published in New York with our individual books, The Red Moon trilogy is the only young adult we've ever written. The strange idea came to us while brainstorming and we wanted to write it, but knew it would only work as young adult. Thank you for this opportunity to present our trilogy.

About The Author

USA Today bestseller Micah Caida is a melding of the two voices, two personalities and two minds of USA Today bestseller Mary Buckham and New York Times bestseller Dianna Love, which often turns up the strangest ideas. While creating the Red Moon trilogy, they hit upon a very unusual “what if” that exploded into an epic story filled with everyday teens facing impossible odds, but are the only ones who can save the world from itself.
