The World's Greatest Adventure Machine Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway

Welcome to Day #5 of The World's Greatest Adventure Machine Blog Tour!

To celebrate the release of The World's Greatest Adventure Machine by Frank L. Cole (8/8/17), blogs across the web are featuring exclusive content from Frank and 10 chances to win a copy of Adventure Machine, as well as theme park tickets in the Grand Prize Giveaway!

An adventure novel about four lucky kids and a mysterious, but thrilling ride for fans of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or Jurassic Park! CastleCorp and the famous Castleton brothers are unveiling the World’s Greatest Adventure Machine! The roller coaster is an experience like no other, and four lucky kids have won the chance to be the first to ride it. There’s Trevor, whose latest stunt got him in trouble at school again. There’s Devin, whose father is pushing him to be the next Internet sensation. Nika’s wealthy grandfather isn’t too pleased about her participation. And Cameron, he’ll be the first to tell you, is a certified genius. The whole world is watching. But as the kids set off on their journey, they begin to realize that there is perhaps more to their fellow contest winners than meets the eye. And the Adventure Machine? It might just have a mind of its own. Join the contestants on their wild ride if you dare. Your adventure starts now!




My Writing Process

I’m such a finnicky writer! I need perfect settings to allow the mind to work. Complete silence, but it’s weird. I hate distractions, but I don’t like an empty house. So, my wife and kids can be at home, but they have to be in the farthest room not bothering me. I need a dark office, the only light is my computer monitor, with a fan blowing (preferably a ceiling fan), and a stack of inspiring books staring at me from a shelf. Woolly socks on my feet. If my feet are cold, I can’t focus, but the rest of my body prefers frigid temperatures. Just not the feet. And there can be absolutely no other pending appointments or engagements looming later in the day. My whole schedule needs to be free from commitments. If I can have a liter of Coke Zero within grabbing distance and a package of Cherry Twizzler Pull-N-Peels, I’m a happy writer. Oh, and my wife needs to be close by for me to be able to read her a few paragraphs out loud from time to time to make sure I’m on the right path.
FRANK L. COLE lives with his wife and three children out west. When not writing books, Frank enjoys going to the movies and traveling.
