Author Nancy Richardson Fischer is a veteran storyteller. But in the age of the internet, the publishing industry has faced unique challenges, and reaching audiences interested in reading new stories has become more difficult. For Fischer, it was embracing new technology – including Skype – that has helped expand her horizons in the publishing space.
Fischer first heard about Skype in the most unexpected of places: a small fishing village of Prea, Brazil. “Everyone in the middle of nowhere knew about and used Skype.” After her trip, she started just using Skype video calling to keep in touch with friends.
But that changed when she decided to take a new route to publishing her book Pandora’s Key, her first foray into young adult fiction. Pandora’s Key, Book One of The Key Trilogy, is about Evangeline, an Oregon girl whose life is uprooted when she is given an ancient key that plays a pivotal role in a prophecy stemming from Greek mythology. Unless Evangeline can discover her true identity and use her wits and newfound powers to fight her deadly adversaries she will lose everyone she loves…but can she accept who she really is and save the world?
