Get Behind the Scenes of Patrick Carman's New Novel

Patrick Carman is the author of Skeleton Creek, the cool book that reads like a journal and comes equipped with passwords to access videos online that tell part of the story:

Strange things are happening in Skeleton Creek . . . and Ryan and Sarah are trying to get to the heart of it. But after an eerie accident leaves Ryan housebound and forbidden to see Sarah, their investigation takes two tracks: Ryan records everything in his journal, while Sarah uses her videocam to search things out. . .and then email the clips for Ryan to see.

In a new, groundbreaking format, the story is broken into two parts -- Ryan's text in the book, and Sarah's videos on a special website, with links and passwords given throughout the book.

The second book, The Ghost in the Machine, comes out in October. In the meantime, you can check out a bunch of cool sites until the release, and see what's going on behind the scenes!

Follow writers, directors, and actors through Twitter, vlogs from the set, production photos, and live chats.

The back lot gives young readers an unparalleled look behind the scenes as we create, shoot, and edit the next project.

This is where readers can find out quickly what's happening from day to day.

Check it out, it's really fun!
