Forbidden Shadows is a young adult science fiction novel that is in the final stages of editing. It takes place 150 years in the future where having technological body parts (known as hybrids) is illegal. The story follows 16-year-old Asher Smizik, a hybrid, who has computer chips in his head that makes him a walking memory bank and a human calculator. He escapes his safe haven of 15 years from hybrid hunters who are out to kill hybrids to sell both organic and technological body parts on the black market. He is now forced to live in the shadows among people who declares his kind forbidden.


I am hiring talent to pose as characters from the book series in front of a still camera. The photos taken will be used by artists as references. The artwork created will be used on social media and may or may not be used in the book(s) itself.

I prefer candidates within a four hour radius of Virginia Beach, Va., but will consider all. If selected to go to stage two, a time will be set up for a meet & greet either in person or via Skype. The shoot itself will be held in Virginia Beach, Va., probably early Fall. If you live outside the 4 hour radius, a local photographer will be hired in your area which could push the photo shoot to a later time frame.

You will be paid a two hour minimum and $40 for every 30 minutes thereafter. Plus you will receive a digital copy of all photos taken raw and unedited, a digital artwork that has your likeness and a signed copy of the book.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you!

Role # 1 - Talon Knoebel Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Talon Knoebel is 13/14 years old. He doesn't really show up until book 2. He did not take the fact that his father was arrested by the government for assisting hybrids (people with technological implants). Hybrids are illegal and if the government finds any, the main computer chip is removed from their brain and usually the hybrid dies within a few days after. If they do survive the removal of the Garrison chip, they are thrown into an interment village for the rest of their life. Any "normals", every day humans with no implants, found aiding and abetting hybrids in any way, shape or form are sentence to prison for life with no chance of parole and no visitation rights. Matter of fact, the government annuls all marriages if one spouse is sentence to prison for helping hybrids and the other spouse is not sentenced.

Talon is bitter at everyone. The government, his mom, his dad, hybrids, his whole family, heck he is probably even bitter and mad at the coca cola delivery man. Talon, his mother, his older brother Kyle had to sell their house and move in with another family just to make ends meet. The other family, the Flints, have the same problem. Mr. Flint and Grandfather Flint were sentence to prison for helping hybrids. Mrs. Flint lives with her mother-in-law, her two boys and rents out rooms to Mrs. Knoebel and her family to help make ends meet.

Talon tends to go down the wrong path. He gets involved with the wrong crowd. He joins a youth gang known as the Red Eyes. Basically they are junior hybrid hunters. They track down hybrids and kill them.

Talon's brother, Kyle, is more of a key player in the series than Talon. However, Talon does play a key part in book 2. (I'm still in the revising stage for book 2 and I am learning new things each day.)

There are times the Red Eyes do the right thing for the wrong reason and wrong things for the right reason. Of course they will do wrong things for the wrong reasons and right things for the right reason as well.
