Dianne Salerni : Writer of Teen and Middle Grade Fiction | Jadie in Five Dimensions

Jadie in Five Dimensions

Last week, I revealed the cover for Eleanor, Alice, & the Roosevelt Ghosts. This week I have a sales announcement to share!

Jadie in Five Dimensions is a mind-twisty, space-bendy adventure into geometry and physics. Inspired by Edwin A. Abbott’s Flatland, which fascinated me in middle school, and with homage to the great science fiction writer William Sleator (especially The Boy Who Reversed Himself), this story has undergone many revisions over the span of 5 years before transforming into a version worthy of publication. I have changed point of view and verb tense, rearranged events, refined the science and math elements, and dropped the number of POV characters from 6 to 3. (6 POVs? What was I thinking?) I can’t wait to work with my fabulous editor and the staff at Holiday House as Jadie’s story bounds into the finishing laps of its journey toward bookhood.

In other news, The Eighth Day series will soon have audiobooks for sale, and I just learned on Friday that the company producing them — Recorded Books — also bid on and won the contract to record Eleanor, Alice, & the Roosevelt Ghosts too! So far, 2020 has been an exciting year!
