#BookTour: The World's Greatest Adventure Machine by @franklcole #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!

Two Truths and a Lie
Frank L. Cole
  1. I was once shown on National Television for slapping a Professional WWE Wrestler on the back.
  2. I met J.K. Rowling at a charity function 17 years ago and I suggested the name of Rita Skeeter, which she later used.
  3. I once threw myself in front of an exploding diet coke to save Marie Osmond’s dress from getting dirty.
Answer (Highlight to Reveal): The lie is #2.... sadly. I would have loved just to talk to her. :)

The World’s Greatest Adventure Machine
  1. This novel was originally titled The Stuffings and it was going to be about an alternate world where stuffed animals live alongside of mannequins, scarecrows, and dolls.
  2. I came up with the initial idea for The World’s Greatest Adventure Machine while shampooing my hair.
  3. 3 of the main characters in the book are named after and based on actual people I went to high school with.
Answer (Highlight to Reveal): The lie is #3. 

  1. Trevor’s story originally began with him climbing into the gorilla enclosure at a zoo to retrieve his cell phone, but shortly after writing it, the incident about Harambe happened and I was asked to remove it.
  2. Trevor has never experienced an actual nightmare.
  3. Trevor secretly has a crush on Nika.
Answer (Highlight to Reveal): The lie is #2. He's had plenty of dreams that would scare most people to death, but they don't elevate his heart rate or freak him out at all.

I had so much fun reading this book with my mom....This is Awesome Annie! Sorry I am not doing a video but school is kicking my butt.  This book was so much to read and I can't wait to see what other adventures they go on.  I read it with my mom in two days and we read it a few times.  It was very interesting and we couldn't put it down. If you are a kid this is a book for those who seek adventure.
