Austin, Texas (PressExposure) June 21, 2011 -- "Nick, of Time; Heroes of the Line Book 1" provides a brisk immersion into the world of its two young soon-to-be-heroes, Nick Emerson (10) and his little brother Frank (5) as they struggle through the trials and tribulations millions of American children face, from schoolyard bullies to a fractured family life. The message of the importance of 'family' rings loud and clear all the while building intrigue and suspense from the first page through to the last. Carlton fires with both barrels as usual.
"We're incredibly excited about introducing the Emersons to the world. This is a story for readers of all ages, full of life messages about courage, love and family." - says Elaine Zuliani, Co-Owner and Spokesperson for Uneak Press, Inc.
"Nick, of Time; Heroes of the Line Book 1" is the story of Nick and Frankie Emerson, two young brothers who learn the horrible truth of what happened to their father on the night he was murdered. Through a series of seemingly random evens they are introduced to a destiny several millennia in the making; to lead a group of heroes in a war against the Living Dark and its sinister minions.
Carlton plans for the series to run from 4-6 books with the brothers' adventures growing right alongside the children. Carlton is known among her fans for creating complex worlds, such as the one in her Freedom Fighter series (Wednesday's Child and Into The Fire are currently available; Fortune's Tide and Murder American Style the third in the series and the prequel, are in the works), Carlton says, "Life is complicated and full of nuances that ripple with unforeseen consequences, believable characters need to reflect that."
