Okay, ‘Good for One Fare’ remains free for today if you haven’t grabbed a download of that just yet.
And now, added to the festive freebie pot today and for the next 48 hrs, there’s ‘Neverville’ – my children’s fantasy adventure book.
Sometimes it’s not getting your children into books that’s the problem,
it’s getting them back out……….
Some writers take on writing challenges for fun, but this time round and for this writer it’s much more than that – it’s to write his children to a place of safety when an unseen author takes over his story and plunges his children into danger – taking them to a place of wonder and danger – dragging them into ‘Neverville’.
For Sam & Georgia what start out seeming like just ordinary and fun dreams, suddenly take a dark turn, with only the sound of their father’s keyboard and the characters he still has some control over to help them escape.
With wizards, fairies, trolls, mermaids, some familiar faces and some all new creatures in this new fantasy land, Neverville is a place both beautiful and deadly, with twists and turns that keep the children wide awake but still dreaming.
Written initially as a NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) project, Neverville was influenced by its own lead characters by being read to them each evening as a bedtime tale, leading to many of the more outlandish plot twists along the way. I hope that those sudden twists and the story coming in one large instalment, leaving the reader to choose where to stop each night, will give a few gasps and giggles to other children – as mine wanted it as an ebook so they can read their own adventures over and over again.
