The rewrite and professional edits for both Mystery at Shadow Lake (Book #1) and Escape From Shadow Lake (Book #2) of the Spencer Kane Adventures are complete! The revised books are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and other popular book sites.
The paperbacks have also been revised, including bright new covers, and can be found on your favorite book sight as well. (If you don't see it right away, give it a few days and check back.) Check the Spencer Kane Adventures tab of this site for the 'new look'.
If you tried the series in its' early days and thought it could use some 'spiffing up', consider it spiffed! Excessive wording, grammar errors and any unfriendly middle-grade/teen references have been removed.
The series can be enjoyed by most (if not all) members of the family.
Book #3 in the series, Return to Shadow Lake will be the next project. Although it's already professionally edited, I will review again for any wording that is possibly inappropriate for middle school/teens. I will announce the availability of this revision also, which should be within a few weeks.
Movie night is a popular way to spend quality family time. Ever thought of changing it up occasionally, and have a Reading Night? With books the whole family can enjoy, it opens a new world of entertainment ideas for the kids.
If you've been waiting for the paperback of the latest Spencer Kane Adventure, The Lake Dweller, wait no more! The book is now live on Createspace
Even if you haven't tried the previous Spencer Kane books, I hope you'll give this one a look. It's well-suited for the YA crowd, and also liked by any age that enjoys a suspenseful mystery that the entire family can share.
Rewrites of prior books are still underway, as I 'cut out' the extra fluff, and ensure that the content is YA appropriate, and professionally edited. The revised books will show Revision, or Version2, Vol 2 (or similar, depending on the limitations of the individual sales channels).
Separate updates will be sent as the rewrites are made available!
Thanks to my readers for their continued support and encouragement. I'm glad to know that there is still a place in the reading world for a clean, but suspenseful story with likable characters!
Working on rewrites of my first two books, Mystery at Shadow Lake and Escape From Shadow Lake, the first Spencer Kane Adventure books.
It's been only a few short years, but when I looked back on these first works, I completely understood the mediocre reviews that came from not only being a 'newbie' to writing, but also not realizing the importance of an editor. Now ALL of my books will be professionally edited (those were the only two that weren't) and I am extremely excited about the future of the series!
Look for the edited versions to be available in April, along with my newest Spencer Kane Adventure, The Lake Dweller! If you weren't sure about the series when you first tried it, I hope you'll give it a fresh look in April! This author would be truly grateful.
The entire website has been updated! There are new tabs, photos, links, and news!
Look around...send me an e-mail or fill out the Contact Form...let me know what you think of the changes.
You'll also notice that a new book, the fourth in the Spencer Kane Adventure series is coming soon! Look for The Lake Dweller in April!
