For your Bookshelf. Nothing encourages kids to read and reread a series like having copies on your home bookshelves. The award-winning Byways Books are available as both paperbacks and hardcover library editions. (Contact CJ via email if you’re interested in ordering author-signed copies.)
Zane Johns doesn’t look like his half-brothers, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any kind of family resemblance. He fits right in with his mother’s family (in looks, anyhow).
Celebrate everything! A quick post to mark the release of Byways #12, In the Middle: A Zane Johns Adventure.
If you’ve been following the series, you know that every Byways Book incorporates details from one of the fifty states—places, icons, landmarks, etc. Zane’s new adventure takes its cues from the twelfth state, North Carolina.
Which is nicknamed, “First in Flight.”
Because of famous stuff that happened in Kittyhawk.
The cover makes so much sense now … doesn’t it? : ]

“If this is a Wild place, shouldn’t it be more obvious? You could say that these are magic trees, covered in magic moss, growing out of magic dirt, and it’s all the same to me.” Bree asked, “Can’t you conjure up a pixie or a dragon, or at least a wisp of foxfire?”
“I’m afraid not, but we’re definitely in the Wilds,” said Jovan. “Since there’s a town nearby, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a wake forest.”
“Wake,” Jovan corrected. “Like a ship’s wake. When colonists enter the land without making peace with the wilderness, the wild parts retreat. Only a little magic is left in its wake. Just enough to hide some surprises.”
“Nope, this isn’t wake.” Zane peered around the woods from Hobo’s saddle. “Whatever these people did when they settled, they did it right. Magic runs deep around here.”
