I’m absolutely delighted to announce that the first Three on a Broomstick adventure novel, The Handwritten Book, is now available as a paperback book on Amazon at the very reasonable price of $7.95. (As of today, they have it on sale for $7.16.) You can go straight to the order page by clicking here.
Here’s the book blurb: John, Conan, and Alex, all age 10, create a broomstick from instructions in the handwritten book they get from an elderly fortuneteller at a Mædieval Faire near Manchester, England. She sees them flying a broomstick in her crystal ball and insists the book must be theirs, much to the dismay of her brother, Marco. Marco dogs the boys, attempting to retrieve the book, which contains secret after secret about magic, but the boys elude him and construct their flying broomstick. The key to getting the broomstick to work is to place it atop the highest tower at Castle Alox at midnight during the full moon. The broomstick must be covered with goat entrails and a dead snake, and lightning must strike the tower at midnight. But where is Castle Alox? Will they get away from the evil Marco? This book tells all!
A little background: The books in my fantasy series, called The Story of the Great American Flying Broomstick (available in paperback and on Kindle), make frequent reference to a series of books—and the resulting movies—called Three on a Broomstick (learn more about the Great American Flying Broomstick series by clicking here). The idea is that the hero of the American Flying Broomstick books is motivated and inspired by the eight young-adult books and movies in the Three on a Broomstick series. Its putative author, Alec Pringle, writes one of these books every year, detailing the adventures of John, Conan, and Alex, who possess a flying broomstick and use it for wondrous and magical adventures. The boys create their broomstick following instructions in a handwritten book given to them by an old fortune teller. And the Three on a Broomstick books are turned into movies by the fictional High Summit Motion Pictures. Learn more about the Three on a Broomstick series by clicking here.
The Three on a Broomstick series was not intended to exist in reality—it was only a literary device. That is…until now. The Handwritten Book is the first book in the Three on a Broomstick series. Yes, there is a book within this book. And since this book is within the American Flying Broomstick series, the old, handwritten book is a book within a book within a book. And it’s full of magic.
