Danger & Doom: Brainless Brother

An Exciting New Ebook for Kids Ages 8-10!

“Exciting! … I could barely stop reading your story until I finished it!!”
— Christina (age 8)

— Martin (age 9)

“He laughed out loud. … An eight-year-old laughing out loud? Success!”
— Sarah, mother of Judson (age 8)

What would you do if your brother lost his mind… literally?

Unusual, amazing, and terrible things always seem to happen to twin boys Daniel and Dominic—that’s why they renamed themselves Danger and Doom—and today, fifteen minutes before the biggest test of the year at school, Danger loses his mind… literally.

His runaway brain has a mind of its own, and it’s on the loose! Now it’s up to his bookworm brother, Doom, to find the clues, track down the brain, battle evil security guards and YouTube-crazy gamers at the greatest video game arcade in town, and somehow get the bitter and vengeful brain back into Danger’s head before the test begins.

Will he succeed? Or will he have a brainless brother forever?!

Danger & Doom: Brainless Brother is the first book in a hilarious and exciting new middle grade action/adventure series for kids ages 8-10.

Available on Amazon’s KindleBarnes & Noble’s Nook, Kobo, Apple, and Scribd.

      Hey Rodrigo. Thanks for your interest. At the present moment, these are the two formats I have available. I’m sorry if that doesn’t work for you. 🙂

    Thanks Tim. Yeah, I use my desktop for reading, but I’ll browse around your blog for a while. Best,

    You can use the chrome browser and kindle reader on it. Works great!

    Dear Tim,

    Do you do any freelance copywriting? Or script writing editing? I need some help on nutritional educational content to ensure it is to the point and gripping!

      I do, currently. Contact me at timstoutwriter at gmail dot com.

    Hi Tim,

    Can you recommend a graphic novel script writing program? One like Final Draft or Scrivner? I’m hoping to use software that automatically formats a graphic novel script (particularly for kids books). Thank you.

      Hey Jeremy. Thanks for the question.

      As of now, there is not an industry-wide standard for graphic novel scripts (for either adult or for kids), so a graphic-novel-specific software is not a necessity. You can use anything that works for you.

      If I could use just Scrivener, I would. It’s fantastic! But I often end up using Microsoft Word for two reasons: 1) the majority of people in the industry—on all of their many devices—have access to Word and know how to use it, so there is rarely a compatibility issue, and 2) I use the square tool bar in Word to make small boxes and place them in the top right-hand corner of the page to represent panel layouts, which I can’t do in Scrivener. (If you are interested, you can read more about how I format a script here:

      If you’re hoping for something a little more fancy, some readers of this blog have recommended Celtx (which is free and entirely online) but I haven’t tried it. Final Draft does offer a graphic-novel format, but it’s pretty expensive, especially when the formatting is not required by publishers.

      I hope that helps!
