Today on my blog, I have author B.K. Bostick, on tour with his upcoming release Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure.
4. Where did the idea for this book come from? When my grandpa passed away, I inherited a box of his belongings. Inside were some of his personal effects and these letters about his search for lost Spanish gold. I read them and got excited. My friends and I ventured into the mountains to follow in his footsteps. Needless to say, we didn't find gold, but those memories of camping out and hiking through the wilderness with friends are some of the best I have- real treasures! A few years later in college, I started thinking up the story of Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure. A few more years after that, I actually started to write it.
6. What are you working on now? What are your plans for your future writing? I am working on Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Coronado which will be released October, 2012. I'm not sure what my future plans are for writing. I definitely have a passion for it, but it's difficult to do while balancing life and work. I suppose as long as people want to read what I write, I'll keep doing it.
9. Anything else you’d like to add? Please check out the fundraiser I'm doing for my amazing, twelve year old neighbor Alyssa. All profits from pre orders and book sales during the first two weeks of launch will be donated to her family- www.treasureforalyssa.com
