Talking Max the Motorcycle - children's book

My wife has written and published a children's book titled Max the Motorcycle.

It is available on Lulu.com: http://www.lulu.com/shop/jen-phillip...-20057957.html

Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Max-The-Motorc...8324278&sr=1-2

It's a fun little book about a bike that has some adventures and then gets stored in a barn. Later, a young couple discover the bike, restore it, and ride it again. It has some really great illustrations done by a local, amateur artist.

Thumb Thanks, guys

Thanks for buying the book. My wife is really excited about it. She has had one short story published before, but this is her first real effort with a whole book, albeit a children's book. But still, it's fun for her. Authors don't really make any money, so it's more of a hobby.

There has been a little talk about doing book signings at the three MAX BMW store locations. To be determined.

Thumb Blockbuster!

There have been a lot of orders on Lulu and personal requests for signed books. My wife is flattered. As is the typical case, most authors don't make much money off their work. That was never the intent. She has enjoyed the process and is glad to see that children like the book. Thanks to everyone who has ordered.
