I first want to thank As the Pages Turn for allowing me to guest post today. My name is Sean McCartney and I am the author of the new young adult action adventure novel, The Treasure Hunters Club: Secrets of the Magical Medallions. My web site www.treasurehuntersclubbook.com has more information about the series but I wanted to let you know the top five things you need to know about The Treasure Hunters Club.
- Fast Pace Action– This adventure is intended to keep you on the edge of your seat. Secrets of the Magical Medallions combines the mystery of the Hardy Boys with the action and adventure of Indiana Jones and National Treasure.
- Cool Villains- Manuel de la Ernesto is the evil treasure hunter who uses the famous treasure hunter “Diamond” Jack Reed to help him get the medallions. What Jack and the others do not realize that Manuel is planning on using the medallions to gain ultimate power.
- Characters You Can Relate With- The Treasure Hunters Club is made up of everyday kids trying to get through middle school. There is someone for everyone, from Tommy Reed, the leader and dreamer of the club, to super smart Jackson Miller, and tougher than nails but still sensitive Shannon McDougal, the only girl in the club and big but loveable Chris Henderson. The inspiration for the club comes from the famous treasure hunter “Diamond” Jack Reed who is a cross between Indiana Jones and John Wayne.
- First In The Series- Secrets of the Magical Medallions is the first book in The Treasure Hunters Club series. The second book is due out May 7th of 2011.
- Teacher and School Friendly- On the web site there is a free downloadable Teacher’s Guide. The guide is based on the new National Standards. There will be a supplement to the guide for the second book. As a teacher I know the value of effective materials that can engage and help the students understand and appreciate the novel.
Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you and I hope you take a chance on the series. It will be worth it, so join the club and enjoy the adventure.
