My son Max's latest literary venture

Some long time readers might recall Max’s turtle story, the one that got him in trouble with his third grade teacher. A year later, he’s almost finished fourth grade, and he has a new story — BACON QUEST —  to share. However, as his agent, I’ve decided to post only select pages.

In his author page, Max notes that he “goes to school, where his brain becomes useful” and “now has a no-pay job as a writer.”

I’m happy to report that Max is right on top of the newest literary trends… appropriating other authors’ established characters:

With apologies to Mr. Conley

Have you noticed kids today can make a character out of anything?

Some of Max’s trademark humor:

To find out whether BACON QUEST* was successful, buy the book. BACON QUEST will be available for $299.99 on Smashwords after content editing, copyediting, and graphic design. By which I mean: look for it in 24 hours.

*Max has been a vegetarian for exactly one year.

  1. And well worth the price!

    I admire Max’s dedication to vegetarianism. Am currently reading Eating Animals and seriously considering it myself.


  2. I love it! Although, I don’t think I can afford $299.99 for it. Maybe he will do a blog tour with giveaways and I’ll have a chance to win a copy?? 😀
