Luke’s Minecraft Quest

Luke's Minecraft Quest book coverI haven’t been blogging much in recent months. That’s because I’ve been very busy. I’ve been busy mining and crafting in the world of Minecraft, the computer game. What I’ve crafted is a series of books for children based on Minecraft.

I’m officially launching the series today. Yippee!

So far I’ve written and published the first 4 books in a series of 12. You can buy them from Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk as paperbacks or Kindle e-books. The books are published under my own name, Steve Morris, and not my alter-ego, Jackson Radcliffe. Jackson’s books are absolutely not suitable for younger readers!

If you have children aged between 7 and 11, perhaps they would enjoy reading about Luke’s quest. Especially if they are reluctant readers. Doubly especially if they play Minecraft.

The books are illustrated too, and I’ve created a website where you can find out more about them, and download free puzzles and games to accompany the books.

Please help me make the books a success. Tell your friends about them. Share Luke’s website on Facebook. Give them as gifts. Read them yourselves – they’re pretty exciting!

Finally, I’d like to thank fellow blogger, Michelle Joelle, for ripping my first draft to pieces and spitting it out again – rather like a Minecraft zombie, but with far greater literary prowess.

And thanks as always to my wife and editor-in-chief, Margarita Morris. She writes books too (Young Adult historical thrillers & mysteries) – go check out her website!

  1. I’m so excited to see the final product! It was such a pleasure to get an early peek and to see your process. I learned a lot from it!

  2. I don’t have children but this sounds like fun… Something for my long suffering husband?

  3. This is awesome! 😀 I’ll definitely be reading them!

  4. What a great way to encourage reluctant readers. Your autobiographical notes aimed at children were delightful, especially the ironically oblique nudge to get little ones to eat their green veg! I’m sure this series will fly off the shelves – mining has always been fascinating and it looks a lot of fun to boot.

  5. I have recently dabbled in minecraft in order to assess its educational potential for my own children. Having previously known nothing about it, I am surprised both by how useful a tool it has the potential to be, and on how complicated it can become, should you want to explore its various different uses. My kids have only played it a couple of times, but they love it, and if its possible to use it to encourage other aspects of learning, then all the better!
