Have you ever heard of Finn Whitman or Charlene Turner?

 

These are characters from an adventure series for young readers called the Kingdom Keepers.  The series consists of seven books.  The author, Ridley Pearson, is in the process of writing the seventh book, which will be released in April of 2014.  Fans have the opportunity to submit entries for sections of the final book.   By involving his fans in the writing process, Pearson indirectly is showing children written expression occurs by creating multiple drafts and constant editing.  The website has games in addition to a blog.  The blog provides writing tips or commentary on recent submissions.   Also, there is an app called Kingdom Keepers Insider.
