Zak Bates Eco-Adventure Readup Part Two

Zak Bates Eco-Adventure Readup Part Two2020-08-13T15:07:24+00:00

Everyone Enjoyed the First Two Readups that We’re Doing More of Them!
Join Us.

That’s right, our first two Zak Bates Eco-adventure series was so much fun for parents and kids alike that we’re hosting additional ones. Truth is, the parents and guardians seem to enjoy the Readups as much as the kids.

That’s also why we’re expanding our invitation list. 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. (And everyone who attends at least one Readup becomes an honorary member of the Eco-team!)

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 for Readup #3 & #4: Wednesday, from 7-8 PM EDT (4-5 PM PAC)

Date for Readup #3: September 16, 2020

Date for Readup #4:  October 14, 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. In fact, we’re fortunate to have a professional audiobook narrator, Ben Fife, who will read sections of the book with all his marvelous voices. (Ben is also in the process of narrating the first three books of the series into audiobooks.)

However, if you’d like a copy, you can order the book in ebook format (PDF, epub, mobi) direct from my online bookstore here:

Buy Direct from Author

You can also order it from Amazon as a Kindle or quality paperback by Clicking Here. That way you and your child can follow along in the book.

And don’t worry, we’ll summarize the chapters we’ll summarize what we’ve read in the previous Readups 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 27 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 These Next Readups

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

Hang On Zak and Ra-Kit







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! Coloring pages like this can be very relaxing and reduces stress. Who couldn’t benefit from a little less stress these days.

These Are Also 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 I said, 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.
