I’m pleased to announce that the first book of The Chronicles of Ethan Grimley III: A Walker is Born is live on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle versions.
I’m hoping to have the second book, Cronus Attacks, in the next couple of weeks.
In this first book, Ethan’s secret attracts the attention of Devon and Ella, people Ethan doesn’t know. They attempt to get him to reveal information that he has promised to keep secret, yet Ethan refuses. This refusal causes its own problems as Ethan has to figure out who to trust.
A Walker is Born is mostly an introductory book. Ethan first discovers the ‘hidden world’, but he really doesn’t sink into it until the second one.
While its intended audience is primarily 8-10 year olds, there is a little violence, as the bad guys have to be fought, but it’s no worse than many of the superhero cartoons that are currently out.
There’s also plenty of white space for the more reluctant readers, and the reading level is about 3.5 (halfway through third grade). I’ve tried to keep vocabulary in that age range while still including words to challenge the reader.
