In honor of the release of Byways Book 1: On Your Marks by C. J. Milbrandt, I’m hosting a Q&A, offering review copies, and doing a fun little giveaway. Not sure what I’m talking about? Here’s the basics:
- I write family-friendly fantasy under my maiden name (C. J. Milbrandt).
- The Byways books are early chapter books, geared for young readers (K-2).
- This series is “born on the 4th of July” because of a game hidden in the stories.
- The three main characters are brothers who take sibling rivalry to new lengths.
- A race ties the series together, and books rotate between the brothers’ POV.
- Simple enough for young readers, plotty enough for parents and older siblings.
- By the time we reach the finish line, Byways will have 50+ books!
Help Me Celebrate!
♦ Ask me questions about the books, the cast, the setting, etc. Not sure where to start? Let me help: Byways Page | Byways FAQ | Byways: State by State | The Land of Liberty | Meet Ewan the Eldest | Meet Zane the Rebel | Meet Ganix the Scamp | Meet Ian Johns | A Touch of Magic
♦ Answer me this! If you could Change into an animal (like Ewan, Zane, and Ganix), what form would you want to take?
♦ On Your Marks: The Adventure Begins is just $ .99 and is currently available at both Amazon and Kobo. It should pop up on Barnes & Noble soon. If you know parents, teachers, or librarians, tell them about the series!
♦ I’m making a limited number of review copies available! Email your request to christa [dot] kinde [at] gmail [dot] com. First comers will receive a complimentary copy of the On Your Marks e-book via Amazon in exchange for an honest review.
♦ Comment below to be included in a drawing! I have some of the cutest little promo cards to share, featuring all kinds of Byways cast portraits (not just the brothers). If your name is drawn, I’ll send a few your way. : )
There you go! I’ll be answering questions all weekend. The drawing will be held on Tuesday, July 8 … so you have plenty of time to chime in!
