Breath (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Don’t flinch- see the truth.

A village bent by the tyranny of an evil Overlord rallies behind the single, strong-willed man who can save them from destruction. Ralic, the son of Ralic the 11th and chosen liberator of his people, is a guy who sees himself as perfect, but will find in the coming day that he still has much to learn. Armed with the Sword of Destiny, the only weapon powerful enough to destroy the evil Overlord, Ralic seeks out a dark castle tucked away in the furthest recesses of a forbidden forest.

A battle of brawn and wits ensues, reality descending into chaos and madness for Ralic, his wife, and the people of the island. When an identical, fake hero appears, Ralic’s relationships and life are put to risk as it’s up to his newly-wed wife to discover the Overlords’ secret and save her love. Nothing is as it appears, and as years of treachery are set ablaze, the villagers come to see that there’s much less they can hold onto for support in the face of such an incredible threat. Soon, the people learn the value of holding fast to that which is true, honest, and sacred, something too humble to be praised, but too powerful to be ignored.

In this fun, empowering short story, discover the real meaning behind ‘The pen is mightier than the sword.’ Explore a blend of science fiction and fantasy, weaved through with both thrill and action.

The Submarine Full of Bees: A Bedtime Story For Kids Aged 5 to 10

A Bedtime Story With Added Buzz


This story is a little bit different from other stories. Usually stories are about other people but this story is about you. And usually stories are made up but this story is all true. It’s about the amazing underwater adventure you had today with those bees.
I know what you’re thinking: you’re thinking: I didn’t have an adventure with any bees today!
Oh yes you did! But you can’t remember because that magic flower made you forget.
Let me explain ...

****************************

In this humorous and wildly imaginative read-aloud bedtime tale, the listener hears about a submarine expedition he/she embarked upon earlier that day to explore the uncharted depths of a muddy puddle. It's one of the thirty-one stories that make up the critically acclaimed collection A Month of Bedtime Stories, oh yes it is!

Reviews of A Month of Bedtime Stories:


A wonderful book well worth adding to any collection - Book Reviews and Giveaways

I loved each one and never once was ready to put the book down - Chodi Kid Books

Looney, wacky, imaginative and borderline crazy tales that McFarlane pens with absolute abandon - Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Top 100 Reviewer / Vine Voice

Scuttlebutt Brightly And The Creeper's Fuse (Book 1): The Adventurer From Bilgewater (An Unofficial Minecraft Book for Kids Ages 9 - 12 (Preteen)
GENRE: Children’s Adventure

(An Unofficial Minecraft Book for Kids Ages 9 - 12 (Preteen)

Book 1: The Adventurer from Bilgewater
Scuttlebutt Brightly has always fancied himself a hero. A dashing, swashbuckling treasure-hunter who spends his time looking danger in the face and laughing. Only problem is, Scuttlebutt is a teensy bit of a coward. So he spends his days using his over-developed story-teller’s tongue to pretend to be an adventurer. Which, frankly, hasn’t work very well so far.

But his fortunes change when he meets Soot, a talking (and surprisingly polite) creeper on a mission to end the bitterness between his explosive kind and humans. Soot wants to find the sorceress who gave him the ability to speak, and needs a guide to take him to her distant island home. Despite the many dangers, Scuttlebutt volunteers…once he learns of the fabulous treasure on the island, of course.

Joined by a tough-as-nails barmaid, an exiled prince, a muddle-mouthed professor and a duck (or is it a chicken), Scuttlebutt and Soot embark on a daring adventure into the perilous wild. They’ll face odd-speaking assassins, cat-wielding pirates, dastardly traitors and pigs that can’t walk straight. All on their journey to Creeper’s Fuse, and the terrible secret that it holds.
