Max Elliot Anderson – Author Update
My NEW book, Lost Island Smugglers, is planned for release in June of this year, by Port Yonder Press. Two additional titles are planned for release in December. Those titles are Captain Jack’s Treasure, and River Rampage. This is part of a new series called The Sam Butler Adventure Series. I'm working on those revisions now.
Port Yonder plans to publish additional titles in 2011.
Baker Trittin – Tweener Press has faced the same economic difficulties as many other small businesses. As a result, they ceased operations last September, and new copies of my first 7 published books were no longer offered on Amazon as of December 31, 2010.
Used copies of these books can still be purchased on Amazon, and I still have a few new copies of each title. If you’re interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for ordering details.
A new publisher is looking at the possibility of re-releasing some of those first 7 books. If that happens, I’ll post information here. The titles are NEWSPAPER CAPER, TERROR AT WOLF LAKE, NORTH WOODS POACHERS, MOUNTAIN CABIN MYSTERY, BIG RIG RUSTLERS, SECRET OF ABBOTT'S CAVE, & LEGEND OF THE WHITE WOLF which are compared by readers and reviewers to Tom Sawyer, The Hardy Boys, Huck Finn, Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, Tom Swift, Scooby-Doo, Lemony Snicket, and adventure author Jack London.
Guideposts Books will publish a true-life story that I wrote called Two Circles of Angels. I’ll post information about that book when it is officially released.
I hope to have news for you soon from two additional publishers who have been considering my action-adventures & mysteries, written especially for boys.
Reviews of books from other authors, and resources such as the book, Why Boys Fail, by Richard Whitmire, will be reviewed on this blog, so stay tuned.
