You knew that already – right? – that age has nothing to do with quality when it comes to writing. We were reminded recently, when we discovered Robin Chambers’ Myrddin’s Heir series sitting quietly in the Amazon Kindle Store, hidden in amongst a million other books all jostling for attention.
Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of Little House in the Prairie, didn’t publish her first book until she was well into her sixties. Frank McCourt didn’t become a published author until he was 66 – Angela’s Ashes, became a best seller and won the Pulitzer Prize. Joe Corso – a 4 time top 100 best-selling author – started writing to help his grandchildren pay for their college education. He’s still writing at the age of 84. The list goes on…
Now we at Publishing Push are on a mission: to get as many of you as possible to give Book 1 in 72 year old Robin Chambers’ Myrddin’s Heir series: “A Wizard of Dreams” just 15 minutes of your valuable time: because we firmly believe that’s all it will take to turn you on to this exceptional series written “for bright children from 10 – 110 years”.
That’s pretty much the readership that was/is captivated by The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis was 52 when the first book in this series was published), The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R. Tolkien was 56 when he finished writing it) and the Harry Potter and… books. (OK, so J.K. Rowling was only 25 when she first got the idea for those – we did say age had nothing to do with it!)

The Starlight Club does it again! Winning Finalist in the Eric Hoffer Book Awards for 2014, and taking 3rd place in the 2014 CIPA contest, there's much to say about this incredible novel taking readers on a ride back into the classic era of mobsters and crime.

"The Starlight Club was created by an extraordinarily gifted man named Joe Corso who upon hanging up for the very last time his NYC firefighter uniform, discovered deep within, his gift as a story teller. I envision this book being transformed into a gangster movie, an Oscar contender, starring leading Hollywood actors. There's the star, Big Red, an astute entrepreneur heading a business empire. I would have been devastated if Big Red was ever arrested, imprisoned or murdered.You can hear their voices as they negotiate deals within the walls of the luxurious Starlight Club in a Queens neighborhood of yesterday. No one in that theater would be munching on popcorn. They would be mesmerized by the heart-stopping action unfolding on the gargantuan screen. You can't close the book, and you can't wait for the next book hot off the press."
