Hi there, passing web traveller,
You have reached the eye candy of Sean Yeager Adventures. Craft, boutique books written for children with a mind of their own. If you are a parent, you really should treat a child in your life to a Sean Yeager book. Why? Because these books ask questions of the reader and encourage children to figure things out for themselves. You see, modern publishers iron out books into – three act plots, plot armor, dumbed down themes, and feed children the current ‘right-on’ adult tropes. I don’t believe in blanding out. I believe in taking children on a rollercoaster ride to places they want to explore. (In an age appropriate way, of course). A world full of gizmos, action and surprises. Modern stories for modern times. Heroes and villains who don’t explain their every movement. Characters who know who they are – there is no hint of cross-dressing, gender fluidity, or tokenism here. A place where mistakes are made and things go wrong. Adventures where children strive to do their best with help from adults and friends. These are rebel books for rebel readers. And the feedback from the real audience – 8 to 14 year olds – has been incredibly positive. They enjoy the craziness and surprises. They relish the mysteries and clues. They want to read these books.
How did I achieve this? Simple. By working with children and listening to what they want to read about. By including characters, twists, subjects, and surprises that work for them. By ignoring conventional ‘rules’ and writing books for children based on their likes.
Your children will get it. Will you dare to be different?
