A superstar is killed for the secret to her amazing talent

Standard

Enter a new integrated multiplatform system: MEND™, a technology introduced through a powerful story

Rachel Barrington’s final concert is jam packed. Word on the street is that the superstar is under surveillance, a pawn in a familial dispute. Her inventor father and her lover are at odds. This is a volatile combination, since they both are working on a top secret experiment surrounding the DNA of Rachel’s ancestors. The suspect list is narrow, kept tightly under wraps. The family is about to engage in a sport that most of us have never dreamed of.

Upon her passing, an acoustic trick known only to her immediate family, allows them to piece together musical clues that she has left behind; and interpret the clues for their own private enterprise. Within seconds of her death, an international fight breaks out over the family’s right to withhold valuable data that could change the direction of human kind.

As the fight heats up, a traitor in the family surfaces. Who murdered Rachel? The murder itself becomes almost inconsequential to the larger picture unfolding on the global stage. A sudden explosion emanating from the inventor’s office is streaming undecipherable data across the sky. All eyes , iPhones, handhelds are glued to the stark moment. The night sky is bright like the day. Meanwhile the resounding echo of Rachel’s song has landed in the ears of a child about to unlock the dangerous colliding pathway. Here comes the split second access for us to come aboard. You won’t want to miss this once in a lifetime access.

MENDing the Gap Between Fiction and Reality

It’s not often that consumers gets to fully immerse themselves in, and become a part of, the product that’s sold to them. But MEND, an interactive story, is both an ambitious product and small business that seeks to combine fiction with reality.

The genesis of MEND is rooted in a fictional narrative written by Mardi-Ellen Hill, who conceived an entire business plan and company around the idea of an interactive story.  What she came up with is an operating system that allows people to interact with elements of the story and use the system to engage with those elements, such as a decoding a secret language that drives the story’s plot. MEND is a device that places readers of the story straight into the heart of the action.

The original book bible follows a female protagonist named Lily Barrington who’s family’s checkered past comes back to haunt her, placing her in grave danger. MEND is an invention within the story fought over by the characters and also the real-world product of Hill’s business.

The system allows readers and consumers to further participate in the narrative elements of Hill’s sweeping epic, almost like an interactive digital encyclopedia. Users can use MEND’s musical language system to decode the secret languages of the story and discover profound clues to the diabolical plot unfolding.

Hill realizes the concept is a lot to take in, noting that her biggest challenge is “articulating the difference between MEND, the work of fiction and MEND the real time operating system. MEND is both a work of fiction, and a work of reality.”

With the creation of MEND as a tangible and consumable product, Hill has bulldozed through the passive limits of storytelling, fostering a truly immersive audio-visual story that readers can actively participate in. And Hill doesn’t plan on slowing the expansion of MEND anytime soon.

“Taking off as a business is the exact stage MEND is entering now,” she said. “I always knew that after the initial conceptualization phase I would be looking to partner with a publishing company, a movie production company, a gaming company and private enterprise partners.”

Currently, the story of MEND is being produced as a script for Hollywood and has already been staged as a play production that sparked the concept for morphing MEND into other adaptions, such as books and games.

However, the most exciting part of Hill’s journey has been the evolution and innovation in technology that has enabled MEND to become a truly interactive journey for consumers.

This activity was a lot of fun, especially considering a lot of this technology did not exist when I first wrote the story. Suddenly much more of this story was understandable to a much wider audience.”

With technology continuing to catch up with Hill’s effervescent imagination, the sky’s the limit for where she’ll be able to take us with MEND next.

A simple lullaby tune morphs/ evolves over centuries. The song has supernatural powers. This family tune can be used miraculously to unlock signature content. The characters born to the ancient Barrington dynasty spin map data from musical language into language we know and understand!

THE SKELETON SCORE, first book in an epic tale, is a story of inheritance, identity and espionage. Diabolical, and thrilling, the characters of the Barrington dynasty are driven by their innate talent and power to control the world. Enter the 21st century. Evolution brings mechanization into the character’s lives. Suddenly the dynasty is aware of the enormous trading value of their power. (To read more about the Skeleton Score, contact Mardi-Ellen Hill.)

An inventor in the 21st century motivated by revenge surrounding his own genetic background is out to share with the public, the most secret of all powers — a secret his family has kept hidden for centuries. With the help of a cousin who programs data and incidentally kills for a living, the inventor threatens his own clan, almost putting them to bed for good.

Inventor Henry Barrington uses two of his own children to show the public how a message-relay can extend all around the world in one nano-instant, a rogue signal that competes hands down, with the biggest big data online.

Only the hands of the real time public can make the final leap into the world of MEND™, and bring the invention itself to the next level… time is ticking!

The operating system inventor Henry Barrington designs, actually works. The dangerous hands are those of Lily’s own DNA – a child she has no idea exists is able to unlock the family source code. That child is used to identify Lily and kick off new mobile technology.

Using the technology, a user’s personality traits, ID and performance capabilities can be quantified, measured; sent anywhere on the planet for printing and archiving as critical data and content.

Lily’s allegiance and loyalties have seconds to take a daring turn that will affect us all.

Mardi Ellen Hill – MEND™ Creator

MEND™ is a new tool kit of technology. The invention is introduced via a launchpad story for the age of social media.

THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD saga, tells the story of the hidden history of the world, of the hidden order that underlies the visible, and of the family whose special perceptions and powers have used the hidden order to shape the world’s history.

Always there have been the Barringtons – not under that name alone but under many, from the start of human history to the present. A specially gifted genetic line, they alone know the hidden order beneath the visible – an order of sound, of power, which is vast and almost entirely hidden from the rest of us. The family’s internal conflicts are written large in the history of the world.

THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD saga begins with the prequel book: THE SKELETON SCORE. Events in the present and near future unfold a tale that goes back in time over several books. Each volume deepens the meaning of future events and the final volume culminates in the events that began it all – inventor, Henry Barrington’s simultaneous discovery of the Barrington secrets and his own. (To discover more about the Skeleton Score Book series, contact Mardi-Ellen Hill).

The stakes are climbing. Henry’s invention finds its way to his daughter Rachel and a secret love child in Paris. His own office explodes. Rachel is killed. Her untimely death hits the airwaves. Without their tools we are hostages and helpless in a family war; a war with a long history set to climax now. We need their tools. Risk finds reward when we uncover their magic.
