Give Kids the Gift of Reading Enjoyment

Rockford, IL: Parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians and others have already discovered the action-adventures and mysteries by Max Elliot Anderson. Mr. Anderson has spent a lifetime in the productions of dramatic films for children, video programs, and hundreds of TV commercials.
Armed with this experience, he brings the same visual excitement and heart-pounding action and adventure to every book.

Readers who like a series will enjoy the
Sam Cooper Adventure Series.
There are also several stand-alone titles available. These include When the Lights Go Out, Terror at Wolf Lake, Legend of the White Wolf, Newspaper Caper, North Woods Poachers, Barney and the Runaway, and The Scarecrow.
What others are saying about books by Max Elliot Anderson:

* "Growing up I loved reading Hardy Boys (preferred them over Nancy Drew) and this reminded me of a contemporary version of Hardy Boys. There is definitely action, adventure and suspense for both boys and girls 8-12 years."

* "Some have said that Sam Cooper Adventures are like good family movies, and Anderson brings his award-winning film and video production experience to the written page in stories that will encourage boys to read."

* "If you have boys, especially boys that don't like to read, then you won't want to miss these books. They will be sure to be favorites for your sons (and daughters)."

* "I'd recommend these books to anyone wanting to encourage their reluctant readers, whether boys or girls, to read. Get yours and dive into the adventures today!"

* "I would happily take an Anderson book over much of what is palmed off as young people's literature today."

* "This is a book that will grab you and hold you until you read the last word."

* "Anderson has written books that middle school readers will gobble up in a night or two!"

* "My daughter said she loved the book and thinks the author writes very well. Overall, she said she would recommend this book to both boys and girls age eight and up."
So, this Christmas, give the gift of reading to your children, grandchildren, or other children in your family and circle of friends. These books are intended for young readers 8 and up.

Crawling My Way Back…Slowly

Well, it’s been a tough last six months where I didn’t feel well but couldn’t figure out why. I knew one of my problems had been a kidney stone, and assumed it had passed through…it hadn’t.

On one particularly bad day, a trip to the emergency room resulted in three different kinds of antibiotics, but an incorrect diagnosis. I kept getting worse. Eventually my system closed down until I couldn’t eat anything; not even liquids. Periodically whatever went in eventually came back up and out. I’m thin already, on a 6’ 4” frame, but I lost about 15 bound in this process.

Finally I went to the doctor in one final act of desperation. I sat in his office at 1:30 and by 2:00 was admitted to the hospital. Several tests were run including scans of my abdomen. An 8mm stone was found stuck in the system, but there was another big surprise. A quite large abscess covered most of my abdominal area.

With around 25 scans, a surgeon guided a long needle through my back until it reached the mass. I had to be awake for this because if he were to hit my spine, I had to tell him if I felt a tingle anywhere. He did and I did. A tube was inserted into the abscess and attached to a pump outside my body. I won’t even begin to describe what came out over the next couple of days.

The next evening, a laser was guided to the kidney stone where it was smashed and removed. Now I’m back on a bunch of antibiotics but at least I’m home and getting stronger. I have to go back for a few more tests in the next three weeks or so, but right now, things are looking much more positive.

I’m not spending a lot of computer time just yet, so I won’t likely respond to emails. What time I do have is on catching up and doing a little promotion since I’ve been pretty much silent on that for such a long time.

I wanted to thank everyone who sent congratulations for a story sold, birthday greetings on Nov 3, and especially for those who have been praying for my recovery. It’s so true, isn’t it? We are fearfully and wonderfully made.
