Here at Authorsreading.com you will meet a plethora of new author talent like Wanda Pyle, Kaylin McFarren, and Christian Thompson along with seasoned authors like James Patterson, JK Rowling, Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Jennifer Weiner. We are a new and innovative repository of literary excellence. We mainly focus on getting new authors, introduced to readers. It's a big, big world in the book publishing industry and many, fabulous books, and authors go unnoticed because of the mainstream news organization's penchant of reporting only on books published by the few remaining traditional companies. Ironically, most of the traditional publishing companies are also owned by the same News Outlets that do the reporting. Our focus is to make it easy for small publishers, self-publishers, as well as large publishing houses to introduce their new authors to book lovers everywhere. We want to introduce the next JK Rowling whose work was first rejected by traditional publishers or the next Louis L'Amour - rejected 200 times before his work went to press, or like Madeleine L'Engle whose book "A Wrinkle in Time," was rejected by 26 publishers. We want to help the persevering writer to be discovered. Incidentally, we only publish reviews of books we think are GREAT.

The grad student, Zachary Turpin, was scouring an online database of 19th century newspapers looking for unique names found in other Whitman works. It was then that Turpin unearthed the 36,000-word, six-part novella published anonymously in a New York newspaper in 1852. The rambling full title, Life and Adventures of Jack Engle: An Auto-Biography; In Which The Reader Will Find Some Familiar Characters, and the subtitle, A Story of New York at the Present Time, are distinct to Whitman and the literary time period.
