Adventure novel books
McKinney author Grant Kauffman has finished his first novel, the first in a series of young adult fiction/adventure books, and he is now working on the second installment. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time; see the synopsis below. The book is available on Amazon.com in paperback and as an ebook and is the perfect summer read for adults and kids alike!
“Day 13, Entry One:
No sleep last night, again. There are several reasons for this, but it is partly because the purpose of my mission continues to elude me. I know it’s down here somewhere, but sadly, my greatest discovery must wait until next time. If I even make it out of here alive. Whatever is in this cave system with me is closer than it has been in a while. What a ghastly growl it generates. It’s guttural and wet—simply awful. I don’t have much energy left— I need to dig deep. I will stop and write again in a few hours, during my first rest. Until then, Paul”
Every town has its secrets, though some aren’t supposed to be uncovered. Paul Redman knew all about the secret just south of Henley, Texas—the one locals won’t talk about, the one tourists can’t shut up about. It’s located along a stretch of river, near an anomaly in the Texas terrain—an impressive, yet ominous rock formation—known to locals as Beelzebub’s Bluff.
It was a secret that Jon Clayton knew as well, which explained his nervousness as he closed the leather-bound journal of Paul Redman and glanced up at his three children sitting around the campfire. His oldest, daughter Skylar, and sons, Noah and Cade, are accompanied by their best friends, Kyra and Timmy Garza. The children soak in every detail of their favorite camping story. It’s the same one Jon and his childhood friend, Danny Garza, have been reading to the kids for years. Every year they come to this place, the campgrounds just outside Henley, the place where Paul Redman was last seen alive over thirty years ago. Soon, the kids will crawl into their tents and will drift off into a deep slumber under a star-filled Texas sky, never imagining the following morning they will stumble upon the extraordinary secret that consumed Paul Redman. By daybreak, the security of the children’s sheltered lives will be shattered forever.

An american woman, after the unexpected death of her husband, moved to Paris--it's a GREAT read and incredibly informative--her way is not the only way to go, but you sure need to know most of what is in this book--reads like a novel.
called C'Est La Vie, by Suzy Gershman and here is the link to it on Amazon---what's nice about Amazon is that under the reviews, are other books on the same topic, so you can read about other experiences before starting your own adventure!

Novel Genres and Story Types2004-06-14 19:43:41 by aynbok
I've only worked out genre and story type classifications for my personal, canonical list of novels. These are books I've read multiple times with continued enjoyment, books that age well over decades in some cases, and books that give me itchy typing fingers (to get writing!). I don't dare comment on screenplays or stage plays or poetry. I've haven't studied them and don't itch to write them.
Novel Genres (Selected List)
* SF (science fiction, squishy to hard)
* Fantasy (some magical causation allowed)
* History (biographical or period-centered; adherence to known facts distinguishes these from SF "alternative history")
* Adventure (arduous voyages, difficult endeavors, secret missions, sinister plots)
* Mystery (crime,...
Read about/participate with my epic fiction book2007-10-04 15:17:29 by Sabrean
My name is Chris "Coach K" Kincey, marketing consultant by trade... (you can Google my name to read some of the stuff I've written).
My Pen name is Christopher Weldon (Weldon is my late twin brother's name)
I am writing an epic fiction novel titled "Sabrean: One, For All" and I'd like to get feedback on what I'm presenting to the world.
Thus far, I had a publisher (specializing in children's books - which is not an entire stretch, but the scope of this book goes far beyond that) but he recently died of cancer, so I'm following his last request as my mentor and starting my own publishing company and will market it myself
