ArkWatch ProductionsTM is a family entertainment media-based intellectual property company founded in 2003. Our company's objective is to be one of the world's leading producers and providers of entertainment and information, using its portfolio of brands to differentiate its content, services, and consumer products from other companies. We believe that the content we create and intellectual property we develop has shelf life and lasting value in the market because of the global interest in the topics that are at the core of our holdings.
We are committed to fostering a culture that embraces innovation, creativity, collaboration, and a solid dose of "entertainment through imagination." In this spirit, we produce novels, children's books, animation, and live action motion pictures that not only entertain but bring out the child in all of us.
We also believe our books have character, integrity, and imagery to create a world based on love of animals and the desire to save and protect the living treasures of our planet, and are based on the values of caring, friendship, and acceptance of others. In addition, we believe that the intellectual property we create, distribute, license, and put into the marketplace have an environmental message to make the world a safer and better place.
Furthermore, in the worlds we create with our characters and imagery, readers connect to the beauty, the messages, the enchantment, and the entertaining plot twists and turns that make engagement with the stories truly enjoyable, if not inspiring.
The Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey
Crow Monsterjunkie is a quiet, overweight Goth teen whose looks keep people at bay and make him a target at school. His older sister has found other ways to fit in. His only real friends are the lovable, enchanting creatures on his parents’ ancestral estate and his plastic Aurora monster models.
And he has secrets ---- too many, in fact, to hold.
Local suspicions about Crow’s European family legacy put his parents’ work at risk in the field of cryptozoology while a greed-driven plot ensues to expose and rid the macabre Monsterjunkies from their mysterious, secluded sanctuary at 1313 Road to Nowhere, Foggy Point, Maine. As the threats to his world increase, Crow must decide whether to rise above the tormenters or to descend into self-righteous retaliation. And, he can no longer contain the anger he feels towards his well-meaning, extroverted but absent father. In order to get support, he must relinquish his self-imposed exile and dismantle the emotional fortress he’s created to cope with too much pressure, too much trauma, and not enough trust in the good.
With elements of magical realism, light-hearted humor, an ensemble cast, and contemporary teen issues.
