Welcome to The Eye-Dancers

Hello!  The Eye-Dancers is a Young Adult sci-fi/fantasy novel,  available as both an e-book and a paperback.  As the author, I have decided to create this little space on the Web.  It is my hope that this platform will be a meeting place for people to talk about, critique, and learn more about the book.  And also a place where other topics are discussed as well, from comic books to the Twilight Zone, from creative writing to quantum physics, from personal memories to short stories and many things in between!  Hopefully there is something here to interest everyone . . .

The story of The Eye-Dancers takes place in western New York State, where I was born and spent the first twenty-five years of my life.  Many of the characters, events, locations, and themes in the story are inspired from my years growing up in my old neighborhood in the suburbs of Rochester.  This was, in short, a labor of love, and I hope that comes across in the pages.  Nowadays, I live in the hills of central Vermont with my wife, Sarah, and our regal cat, Luke.  But the magic of childhood, of the adventures I shared with my friends growing up, has remained with me well into adulthood.  The Eye-Dancers is for anyone who likes to imagine, who wonders, “What’s really out there?”  “What is across the void?  Another reality?  Another world?”  It seems to me that when we’re young, our minds are more free and more open to discover the nature of things.  The Eye-Dancers asks some probing questions about what we term “reality,” and the four main characters in the novel  (Mitchell Brant, Joe Marma, Ryan Swinton, and Marc Kuslanski) must travel on an extraordinary journey to search for the answers.

For a snapshot of the book, please take a look at Chapter One, Chapter Two, and Chapter Three.

Thanks so much for reading!

Michael S. Fedison  (“Mike”) — author of The Eye-Dancers

    Congratulations on your book. It sounds intriguing and I can tell by your introduction, it was truly a labor of love. I’m glad you stopped by the Cow Pasture and am thrilled you decided to stay. Welcome to the Cow Pasture fence jumpers. I look forward to hearing more from you.

    (“…regal cat…”! My cat stopped being regal when my grandson and son moved in with me…now he’s “scaredy cat”!!)

    Your book sounds wonderful! When a story is built around one’s own memories, it gives such insight into The Person, the Author. I do look forward to reading it. I have always much preferred stories woven of such:) To be truthful, if I’d not had such an interesting and full life, I would never have even attempted to write a book…OR a blog!

    I’m not sure how you found me, but thanks so much for dropping in to The Old Fossil Writes…and then following me, as well!!

    Best of luck with your books and everything else😀

    Sounds like a fascinating book, and not just because I’m from Rochester, too. I think you may be the first Rochesterian I’ve met here at WordPress. :)

    Can’t wait to check out the book and see if I recognize anything… lol!

    Good luck with everything! Really!

    Hi Michael, I hope your book is doing great! I know I certainly enjoyed it and I hope my review was helpful and spurred on others to read it. Have you had a chance to read and review my Novel, The Girl in Black? I am looking forward to your review of it. I’m on my next novel which is Sci-Fi and a new Adult and Adult novel so I will be looking to you as a proof reader. Please let me know when you post your review of The Girl in Black. Thanks.

      Hi Lauren! Yikes.:) I was thinking I didn’t have the right book for a second, but then I remembered! I actually am reading your book The Starling . . . I have been backlogged with several projects lately and have been much too slow in the things I’d like to do–Like reading your book! I have started it, though, and am really enjoying it! I should have the review up within the next month or so. I do apologize for the delay.:( I am very much enjoying The Starling! Thanks so much for all your help and support, Lauren!

    How wonderful to come across this particular post! I did not realize that our stories seem to travel along similar, although, perhaps alternate lines.

    My own “Folded Dreams (“… – the Beginning”, & the novel which is in progress), have a touch of everything from, “after this life, what?” and “the truth is out there”, to Einstein’s, Fermi’s, Feynman’s and others’ theories of time and space, and the possibilities surrounding the question of what might mankind be capable of if we were to master the full 100% of our brains!

    I wish you lived right down the street so that I could have you over for a morning cuppa and a long discussion about very young children’s imagination vs. their wisdom…

    Regards,
    Pearl
