Will 2012 be the year when your children, especially boys, will become excited readers? I know from experience how difficult it can be for a boy to pick up a book, settle in, and read. That's because boys would much rather be "out there" doing things, not just reading about them. They want action, adventure, and excitement.
It was exactly with those ideas in mind, that I began writing books for readers 8 - 13, especially boys. Most chapters end in such a way as to nearly demand that the reader go on to the next chapter.
Parents, teachers, librarians, and grandparents have written to tell me of their positive experiences with my books and their young readers. That's probably because I bring a lot of the excitement and heart-pounding action and adventure, from years of film and video production, to my books. You can read more about that at http://www.maxbooks.9k.com/index_1.html
A possible way to get your boys interested is to give them the link to my Youtube videos http://www.youtube.com/user/Maxbooks100#p/u
This is where I've brought together my film production world, and my author world in one place.
You say your boy is more into electronic gadgets, video games, and computers? Well, several of my titles are also available on Kindle http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss/177-4347377-1879267?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=max+elliot+anderson&x=18&y=20
