Free Day! Just a quick note to let you know that one of my e-books is currently FREE! I publish family-friendly fantasy under my maiden name—C. J. Milbrandt. In the Byways books, I tell the story of three brothers who take sibling rivalry to new lengths by racing each other across their homeland. Geared for young readers, the stories 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.
