Comment by Ichabod Temperance CP on June 22, 2014 at 5:28pm

Hello Kathryn and Heather, Ichabod Temperance here.

I will now shamelessly plug my own book series.

'The Adventures of Ichabod Temperance'

Genre: Steampunk / Paranormal

These are humourously told adventures with a light touch of romance.

I like to think that they are for early teens and up for children of all ages.

These novels contain:

-No graphic sex. {Though they are lightly sprinkled with mild innuendo.}

_No graphic violence. {There is some monster violence, but not bad, and the fight scenes are usually of a comical nature. Moreso as the series progresses.}

-No strong language.

There are four published and the fifth is just waiting on cover graphics.

Here is a link to the first. It is only .99 cents on kindle.

Cheers!

~Icky.
