Darktime Tales Publishing is proud to annouce the release of our first eBook for the Barnes & Noble Nook!

The Traveling Salesman's Darktime Tales Anthology is now available on the Barnes & Noble Nook!

Author Scott Swift has Created a Fascinating New Concept in the World of Children's Storytelling - Stories That Children of Any Background Can Identify With!

Originating from the fantastical tales a father made up from thin air each night for his sons at bedtime, the Traveling Salesman is a mystical, magical wizard of sorts who uses his wits and wizardry to escape tight spots and help those in need. Traveling from town to town, he sells everyday items enchanted with magical properties, but beware! If the items are misused, the consequences can be dire!

Meant for children ages 10 and up, the stories are full of action and adventure, but without the intensity of more adult fare. Each tale is a standalone story in its own right, but taken together they weave a rich and vibrant world inhabited by werewolves, witches, and magical creatures of every kind!

What makes these stories so unique is that the main character, the Salesman, is never given a name, nor is he described physically. In fact, none of the characters in the stories are given names!

The Salesman could be any shape or size (tall, short, etc.) or of any background...whatever the child imagines! This distinctive style of writing allows children to imagine the characters as anyone they want! Family members, people in their own communities or even classmates! A completely unique way of telling children's stories!

This Anthology contains eight of the Salesman's greatest tales in a single book! These include:

The Magic Pot and the Werewolf
The Witch in the Woods
The Old Wizard and the Sea
The Magical Ax
The Sparrow and the Magic Birdcage
The Prisoner and the Wizard's Watch
The Werewolves and the Sword of Medusa
The Red Queen and the Eye of Divination
