and that means it's time for some mythical magic with a new Children's story
by yours truly, T.S. Bryan.
Bunny and the Missing Chocolate.
So, click on the picture to enter the Land of Myth.
Time for another free short story
This ones for kiddles. It's all about a magical Grandad and, in the first of a number of stories planned, this tale tells a story of Hugo and Lily going on a trip to Mars in a magical spaceship.

Happy reading! T.S. Bryan
Well, here I am at the Chester Literature Festival reading 'The Shrinking Christmas', a children's story about an elf called Isabella, a young boy called Nathan and a large jolly chap with a white beard and a red and white coat.
A big thank you to a great crowd and the Storyhouse staff. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
I'll post any other events here so do keep a look-see.
Well, I mentioned in a previous post that I need to get out there and do some promoting so, I've managed to get a slot at the Chester Literature Festival where I'll be reading 'The Shrinking Christmas' at the Storyhouse kitchen on Sunday 24th November at 4 o'clock.
It's free - no booking required, just drop in. Easy as that.
So, pack your kiddies in the car and I'll see you there!

Well... what ever possessed me to write a Christmas book where I can only go and promote it... yes, you guessed it... AT CHRISTMAS!
So, with the thought of getting myself out there all year round instead of sitting around drinking coffee all day, Billy's first adventure now has a few more characters and a little more magic thrown into the mix. It has a new title and is now called the Land of Myth instead of the Incredible Shrinking Christmas.
The Story is the same, but the Christmas theme has been replaced with a blend of witches, broomsticks and mythical creatures of all kinds who are mischievously busy all year round. Book 2, the Big Cheese, has had a few changes too to compliment the magic theme.
So now, with the knowledge that I think I know where I'm going with all this tippy-tapping at my keyboard, it's time, in between 'getting out there', to get a move on with book 3, where aeroplanes, boats and an extra helping of chaos should enter Billy Trip's model railway world.
And don't forget, your kiddies can read the first three chapters of both stories right here on my website. Just click on the book covers and you'll head right there.
Fancy reading a little spooky tale? Then here's another short story for a little bedtime reading.
Have you been in your attic lately?
Well, for those of you who have tried to ride Billy's trains, you may have experienced the circle of doom as the videos slowly download, making them look as though they are slamming on the brakes every few seconds.
Well no more!
All videos are know on youtube, so no matter what device you are viewing them on they stream marvellously. Click the button below and take a look yourself.
What else is happening?
First, the Billy Trip series is getting a makeover. I am currently in the process of writing a non-Christmas version of book 1 (The Incredible Shrinking Christmas). Obviously it will have to be called something else because Father Christmas will be replaced by someone who is rather nasty, but the ending will still lead nicely into book 2 in much the same way as the Christmas version.
Second, book 3 is nearly finished too, so hopefully I'll be coming to a school or library near you with some readings in the latter half of the year.
And third, I will be posting another short story (an adult ghost story this time), within the next couple of weeks. So keep an eye here, on my blog.
This has to be the best Christmas card I've ever had!
A huge THANK YOU! to year 3 at St Mary's, Overton
A huge thank you to St Mary's Aided School in Overton for a great welcome today, and to give me the opportunity to read to a few chapters of Billy Trip and the Incredible Shrinking Christmas to year 3 boys and girls.
