Self-publishing and using Minecraft with young writers

In 2015 Elijah C. Stroud published The Story of My Minecraft Life on Amazon. Available for Kindle and in paperback, it recounts Stroud and his friend’s journey playing and building in the blocky game environment. Stroud followed it up with The Last Day of Minecraft, which came out in early 2016. According to the description on Amazon, the sequel introduces “Elijah’s fictitious brother, Evan. Together the two get into a wild adventure in the world of Minecraft.”

In addition to authoring two books, Stroud has a YouTube channel devoted to Minecraft. Oh, and did I mention that he was just 8 years old at the time of his first book’s publication?
