Zak Bates Readup Event No. 2

The First One was So Much Fun We’re Doing It Again! Join Us.

That’s right, our first Zak Bates Eco-adventure series was so much fun for parents and kids alike that we’re hosting another one.

And we’re expanding who is invited. This one is

  • Perfect for kids between roughly 8 – 15 and their parents or guardians,

  • Anyone else who enjoys light fantasy with a humorous edge, and

  • Especially if you love animals.

After all, the eco-adventure team is made up of Ra-Kit, the last living magic cat, Sampson, her giant flying dog, and 13-year-old Zak Bates.

We’ll meet in the Zoom Room for a fun hour as we read part of Dominion Over All, Book I of the Zak Bates Eco-adventure series. With its white-knuckle action and a wholly green, eco-friendly message, this is the perfect way to kick off this new adventure together. Share in the fun, excitement, and magic that only READING can provide!

Here are the details:

Day & Time: Wednesday, from 7-8 PM EDT (5-6 PM MDT)

Date: August 12, 2020

Do I Need the Book?: No, you don’t. That’s why the Eco-adventure Team invited me, the author. I’ll bring a copy that can be read online. However, if you’d like a copy, you can order the book in ebook format (PDF, epub, mobi) direct from my online bookstore here:

You can also order it from Amazon as a Kindle or quality paperback by Clicking Here.

And don’t worry, we’ll summarize the chapters we read in Readup #1 to make sure you’re caught up. You can also download the first three chapters here or catch up with this video summary:

Who is W. Bradford Swift Anyway? I’m the author of 26 books of science fiction, fantasy, and visionary fiction including the three books of the Zak Bates Eco-adventure series. You can learn more boring stuff about me on my bio page here.

Where We Will Meet: In the Zoom Room (virtually and online). Upon registering, you will be provided with information on how to join.

Special Treats for Readup #2

This will be a Coloring Book Page Day: Start by downloading one or both coloring pages below, then printing them out.

Then, get to coloring it in prep for the Readup Show and Tell time. Yes, this is for kids, parents, and kids at heart. Everyone can join in!

This is also an Invite Your Friends Day: You know you’ve got friends that could use a break from the hectic, crazy world we’re all living in. So invite them to join you. After all, it’s on Zoom so everyone can attend that wants to.

Special Guest Reader: As he did last time, my good friend and professional audiobook narrator, Ben Fife, will be there to read sections of the book with the different voices of each character that he’ll be using when he narrates the three books of the series. You don’t want to miss this.
