By Efehan Elbi

A novel about friendship and universes, and missed chances just a few worlds away.

Recently-dumped and searching for distraction, Lain comes across an online ad.

Seeking Investigative Partner for Priority Task:

Do you possess higher-than-average deductive ability? Does the world seem thinner to you somehow, more malleable than you once thought? If so, you may be just the person for a crucial mission.

Lain can't resist responding. Later, as the shadows gather around her, ashes in her hands, Lain wonders how far into the darkness she is willing to go.

2+ years in the making, Moonlines is the debut fiction novel by interdisciplinary artist Efehan Elbi, author/illustrator of the Genevieve graphic novel series.

A note from the author:

For years, Lain has waited for her story. From scripts to web-series drafts to short stories, she's hovered around the periphery, watching others take the stage. It makes me endlessly happy that, with the help of friends and family, she's found her place in Moonlines.

If you're curious, I've got the first 10 chapters as a preview, below. It may help you decide if you want to tag along with Lain and Kallista 'till the end.
