BOOK SUBJECT MATTER:
A young Jacob is invited to witness an experimental test of a time machine built by his father and fellow scientist friend. The experiment turns into a twist of animosity and evil plot ending with the fellow scientist using the machine to perilously port himself into a time and realm of evil. With him, he takes a journal from the 1930s outlining the science of time travel. To save both his father and himself, Jacob and his robot dog are forced to take the painful time jump, landing in Nazi Germany. What is minutes between jumps in future America is actually a couple years spread in Germany.
Main THEME of the book:
Science fiction, struggles of Nazi Germany --concentration camps, the evil, those who were good, keeping and finding love for family and friends, standing for a cause
Don't establish characters in any look. we want the readers to imagine this themselves.
No bright colors.
Unsaturated colors in the winter palette, blues, blacks, hints of red maybe.
There are a few different scenes the authors told us that are major influences in the story that you can mess with.
-Laboratory- This is a major point in the story because it is where the TimeWorm is created and where are story started off.
-Holocaust Camp- Obviously this story is based in late 1930's Germany and the character finds himself in a similar situation.
Mainly though if you have an interesting idea that could form all of this together and it isn't found in this brief, go for it. The authors have expressed that they don't want to get in the way of the design of the book.
