THE BEEF JERKY GANG by Daniel Kenney

The Announcement - I am thrilled to announce that as of Monday, The Beef Jerky Gang is officially out in the world! People interested in buying either the e-book or print book can find it now on Amazon.

The Beef Jerky Gang: Book Description

Age Level: 9 - 13 | Grade Level: 3 - 7
When Peter Mills descends into the creepy basement of Finley Junior High, he discovers a dark and twisted truth: girls haven’t always ruled the world.

Now armed with a book of ancient, forbidden man secrets (such as how to make paper airplanes, stink bombs, and beef jerky), Peter and his friends think they’ve found the recipe to changing their lives. But the boys of the Beef Jerky Gang will soon find out that the girls aren’t about to give up control to a bunch of prank-pulling punks.

Join Peter and his friends in this hilarious first book of the Beef Jerky Gang series.

With The Beef Jerky Gang, I set out to write a book that would both entertain my boys (Isaac 12, Jude 10, Brendan 9, Daniel 7) while still appealing to my daughter (Anna 13). I think the book manages to do that but when I'm asked, I tell people the book is probably most perfect for the 10 or 11 year old boy. If you've got kids in this range, I'd be thrilled if you gave the book a try. If you have friends or family with kids in this range, I'd be honored if you told them about it.

What I'm Working On Next - The second installment in The Beef Jerky Gang will come out in April but I'm working right now on finalizing everything for the first installment of a book called The Math Inspectors. It's about a group of kids in the fictional town of Ravensburg, New York who love math and use their curiosity and mad math skills to help solve crimes around town. Should be out in late November or early December.

I'm also working on revisions for a story called Curial Diggs that I'm insanely excited about. This is a project that is near and dear to my heart and hoping very much it will find its way into the world so all of you can meet Curial some day.

Thanks again for letting me make my big announcement and once again, if The Beef Jerky Gang sounds like the kind of thing your family might enjoy, please consider picking up a copy. Thank you!
