Diane Major about this book: Mason and Bess, The Adventure Begins is the first of a possible series for Children. The book is about a child and a cocker spaniel who live on Earth however, they have a very different identity and come from another World. It it an adventure story, a bit of a modern fairytale. I wrote the book as I thought it would be a fantasy adventure story for Children 8-12 years. It took me 2 months to write this adventure and I have already begun Book 2. The book is named Mason, after my nephews baby boy, and Bess is really my daughter's cocker spaniel named Bud (LOL). The Book Cover - I wanted something that would draw some interest from Boys and Girls.At first I thought it was too old for the age group,but I have checked it all out with children in that age group and they loved it!
As this is the first Children's Book I have written, it took a lot of concentration to keep it straight forward and easy to read with the aim of engaging a child's attention. I only did a little research on the internet around the creatures in the book, particularly trying to find a name for the wild dogs.What I learned from writing this book was that it needed to be action based, particularly if boys are to be engaged in the story. I hope every child or parent who read this book to their child, enjoys the story.
