WindowlandWindowland by author writer J.E. Ocean, writer, ghostwriter Central Ohio,

Obsessed with reflective surfaces, Jaaz looks forward to the yearly occurrence of a traveling festival that brings with it a mirror maze. One moment she’s watching herself going through the maze and in the next, she’s boggled by her image emerging from the glass. The other young woman anxiously entrusts Jaaz with a wand-like device claiming it will answer all of her questions about mirrors. Then the wand begins to glow.

Within minutes, Jaaz finds herself being chased by a group of enormous and fierce-looking men who have caught sight of the glimmer. While attempting to evade them, she loses track of her place in the maze and runs full-on into a dead end. Instead of breaking glass, she falls through and finds herself in Windowland.
