Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Chris Moujaes will be taking over our Twitter account.
Film producer, entertainment executive, character designer, and author, Chris Moujaes is the founder of HEROHELIX, a studio that produces original fictional universes through books, graphic novels, and animation. As the former Head of Original Entertainment at Funimation, a division of Sony Pictures Television and worldwide leader in Japanese anime distribution, Chris managed millions of dollars in motion picture production. He is credited as an executive producer on the anime movies Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker and Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, based on hit video games by BioWare.
Written and produced by former Head of Original Content at Funimation, Chris Moujaes, the audiobook is narrated by Todd Haberkorn, known for his anime, video game and animated series work in Fullmetal Alchemist, Fairy Tail, Soul Eater, The Legend of Korra, Avengers Assemble, Attack on Titan, Ben 10, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Naruto Shippuden, Monster High and Destiny 2. Moujaes creates a new opportunity for audiobooks by presenting anime-inspired content with outstanding voice performance, plot and character development containing anime flavors. Audiobooks let readers experience new, fictional worlds and imagine them with the vivid artistry that anime is famous for.
Flux Destiny: Fortuna’s Rings is the first installment in a coming-of-age series following Marco Mendoza and Hugo Wandschneider — two teenage outcasts with supernatural talents in a universe where destiny itself is a controllable force. When the mysterious Board of Trials orders them and their headstrong Clockbot, Lucky, to investigate a situation at Anderes — an isolated city straddling a gigantic rupture in space-time nicknamed Big Mouth — they discover a plague of blood-thirsty, biomechanical creatures called Cankers that are wreaking havoc on the city. Marco and Hugo must put aside their dislike for each other to try and uncover the source of these mysterious attacks and save Anderes from certain destruction.
In my career, I’ve had the unique experience of creating anime film and television content that bridges Japanese and Western-styles of storytelling,” Moujaes says. “I saw an opportunity to bring the best of both worlds together in this new category of anime-inspired works, which is a successful novel now coming out in audio form for those who love anime characters in expression.”
Published by Haiki House Press, the first audiobook chapter is available to listen to for free now. The paperback edition of Flux Destiny: Fortuna’s Rings is available at Amazon and received five stars. Follow Flux Destiny at www.fluxdestiny.com or @fluxdestiny on Facebook and Instagram.
