Last year while my son was learning about deep sea creatures in class, we wrote a little story together. It’s a short story about four boys who embark on a journey to the bottom of the sea where they face dangers and learn valuable life lessons.
I have polished and edited it and today I published it under the pseudonym, A.C. Lee. The A & C being the first initials of our first names.
This is a great book for K-5th graders (maybe even older) and I encourage any parent to check it out for their kiddos! It’s 2750 words and only 99 pennies!
It is currently available on Smashwords and will soon be available at all other online retailers. The book is in digital format only. There are no current plans to make it a paperback.
UPDATE: SEPT. 23RD, 2014 – YOU SPOKE, WE LISTENED! Upon hearing the news about the release of this book, parents immediately started asking for a paperback to read to their children. So, I quickly got to work on creating it and it’s now available on Amazon!
ABOUT A.C. LEE
A.C. Lee is a mother-son duo. Son—8 years old. Mom—well, we won’t say.
This book, Into the Abyss, came about one day when a certain sister went to a birthday party. While she was gone, a certain brother wanted to spend some quality time with his mom.
“What should we do together?” The mother asked.
“Let’s write a book!” The son said.
“Okay. What should it be about?”
“Deep sea creatures!”
The son had been studying deep sea creatures in school, and couldn’t seem to get the creepy, freaky, and somewhat eerie looking things out of his mind.
For the next several hours, they worked on a first draft. The mother processed it afterward, changing some words now and then, adding some story here and there, and cleaning things up a bit, and wall-ah! Into the Abyss was created.
We sincerely hope you like our story!
Special Note from Mom:
My son and I had so much fun creating this story. The entire experience—the laughter we shared, teamwork we engaged in, and bonding time we enjoyed—will be a memory that we can look back on with happy hearts for years to come.
Thank you so much for reading!
