Free Day! Just a quick note to let you know that one of the Byways e-books is currently FREE! This series tells the stories of three brothers who take sibling rivalry to new lengths by racing each other across their homeland. Geared for young readers, the books are full of the sorts of things I enjoy: mythical creatures, quirky folks, kind deeds, loyal friends, and a touch of magic. If you homeschool (like we do), you’ll also appreciate the educational twist. Each book is tied to a state, and I make a game of weaving people, places, icons, and claims to fame from that state throughout the story.
Today, you can nab Byways Book #4, which is tied to the fourth state to be ratified—Georgia! Up the Mountain: A Ganix Johns Adventure finds the youngest Johns brother at his fourth waypoint, but is he the tortoise or the hare? The upcoming peach blossom festival sounds like fun, so he decides to stay. But one little accident leads to big trouble, and it’s up to Ganix to make things right.
Haven’t read the first three books? Don’t worry about it. Although there is an over-arcing plot, each story makes sense on its own. They’re largely episodic since … I know my kids would always just grab whatever book was on the shelf at our local library. Feel free to mix-and-match. Or play favorites. ; )
Already read the book? Yay! Maybe you can tell your friends about this freebie. And the best way to cheer the brothers to the finish line is to leave a review. [Bonus: there’s a mini-challenge underway right now. Post a new review of any of CJ’s books, and I’ll send you a postcard from Tennessee!]
