Vote in the Doomsday Code Short-Story Contest!

TimeRiders Sal, Maddy, and Liam are on a mission to save the world from the potentially detrimental effects of time travel. It’s no easy task: They have to be crazy smart, exceptionally perceptive, and incredibly brave. But their work is essential. One small change to the past will have a huge impact on the present.

Inspired by Sal, Maddy, and Liam’s adventures in The Doomsday Code, the third book of the TimeRiders series, we challenged you to write a story set in a present where a major historical change is a reality. The entry period has closed, but now it’s time to vote for the 10 finalists who will be sent to author Alex Scarrow for judging!

Voting will run until Monday, November 5 at 5:00 p.m. ET.

One grand-prize winner will receive the first three books in the TimeRiders series (TimeRidersDay of the Predator, and The Doomsday Code) and the Guardians of Timetrilogy by Marianne Curley (The NamedThe Dark, and The Key).

Four runners-up will each receive copies of the first three books in the TimeRiders series (TimeRidersDay of the Predator, and The Doomsday Code).
