Make it YOUR story

There nothing new under the sun. One tactic that's been around forever is to take a story we're all familiar with and give it a little twist. Change the familiar ending. Or tell it from the POV of a different characters. That's just what happens in the new novel, Finn, that's getting a lot of good buzz.

USA Today says "Jon Clinch's Finn is a brave and ambitious debut novel inspired by Mark Twain's masterpiece, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. It fully imagines the life of Huck's violent, alcoholic and bigoted father. It stands on its own while giving new life and meaning to Twain's novel, which has been stirring passions and debates since 1885."

What can you make your own?
