The Mile-Marker Party: One young man's inebriated struggle to pedal across a continent and find his way home. Volume 1. -A laugh-until-it-hurts adventure/travel-memoir like no other. Hunter S. Thompson for Millenials.

(NEW YORK, NY) - Imagine climbing Mount Everest in blue jeans and a pair of bowling shoes and boozing the entire way up, or swimming across the Atlantic Ocean in a Speedo and some Swimmies while towing a keg of beer behind you. Well, The Mile-Marker Party (released Nov. 22, 2012 by Library Tales Publishing) celebrates one young man-child's drive to do something just as crazy and utterly ridiculous, and all that he did during that unforgettable summer to try and not die along the journey. Coming from Library Tales Publishing - The Mile-Marker Party: One young man's inebriated struggle to pedal across a continent and find his way home.

About the Book:

In 1998, a 22-year-old man-child with a mediocre set of balls, zilch between the ears, and a mind-blowing alcohol problem, placed the last of his worthless belongings into a dilapidated baby carriage, attached it to an even older bicycle, and decided to see if he could pedal nearly 3,000 miles across North America. With little more than pocket-change, he wondered at his chances of making it home alive. This book is not only the ultimate in adventure-infused memoirs, but a dare to come paint on some spandex as an All-American boy turns into an absolute madman while trying not to die with every mile that passes. Saddle up and strap yourself in for a unique brand of humor as a journey unfolds through lands that will have you ultimately asking yourself just how in the hell this kid managed to forage his way, all the way through The Mile-Marker Party: one young man's inebriated struggle to pedal across a continent and find his way home.

Also coming soon from Patrick McFadden Jr. and inspired by real events, Backcountry Psycho:

In the late 1970's, when a notorious outlaw responsible for a string of wild and fantastic crimes found himself cornered in the rugged Montana backcountry, he disappeared into a pocket of America where he knew no one would dare follow. A vast stretch of lawless and unforgiving wilderness known for swallowing up all those who enter; a forest that is said to be home to some of the world's most dangerous recluses.

In the years following, hikers and other trespassers foolish enough to venture near the ill-fated forest continued disappearing at a rate of a few a year, until one day in the early 90's when a disheveled and bizarre woodsman in tattered clothing came wandering out, telling an incredible tale of a close-knit band of psychotic hermits, their volatile leader, and the unimaginable behavior they've been engaged in while preparing for the end of the world: Armageddon.

Enter two reckless and impulsive 20-year-old young men who've just run away from their uneventful lives in New Jersey, hell-bent on finding themselves a real Wild West adventure. Befriended by the strange woodsman, they are soon lured to the remote Montana backcountry with the promise of cheap land, unsurpassed beauty, and the chance to encounter a clan of forgotten Americans never before seen by the outside world. If the boys will only agree to take him there, they are guaranteed to return with a story for the ages.

But from the moment the trio leave civilization and head further and further north, things begin to go terribly wrong. Their vehicle dies and they're forced to abandon it, heading deeper into the frozen forest on foot, following a man they soon realize is mad, and knowing that he is their only chance for survival. But soon others turn up, and before they know it the two young men find themselves face to face with the long lost outlaw and his explosive posse, his beautiful young scheming wife and her dark secret, and their unimaginable life-threatening ultimatum.

Take a ride where few have been and follow this journey based on true events as two boys enter one of the most remote forests in the world and suddenly realize there are people in there, many of whom have gone Backcountry Psycho.

Welcome to KBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.
