Maureen Johnson Posts Part 1 of a ‘Shades of London’ Prequel on Wattpad

Maureen JohnsonYoung adult writer Maureen Johnson has penned a short story, a prequel to the Shades of London series, called “The Boy in the Smoke.”

Readers will be able to access it for free on the social storytelling website, Wattpad. So far, a section of it has been posted online. Three more parts will be unleashed throughout the rest of the month.

Here’s more from the press release: “‘The Boy in The Smoke’ takes place before The Name of The Star, the first of the Shades of London series, and details the events that led to Stephen Dene developing the ‘sight’ that brought him to his unusual occupation as de facto leader of the Shades, London’s secret ghost-fighting police. A section of the short story will release every Monday for a month, beginning on August, 18th, till the story is published in its entirety.”
