Guest Speaker at Writing/Marketing Class

I had the privilege of being invited to be a guest speaker at a writing/marketing class at the local college. It was only about nine months ago I had sat in that very class.....I found the class very motivational and inspirational when I had taken it. I remember how I couldn't wait until the next class. Until the time I had taken  that class, I never really had much contact of anyone with a passion for writing, in fact, as many of you know, most people didn't even know I was writing a book until it was released less than two weeks ago.....I wanted to save it as a surprise to my friends and family.
I find myself recharged just being around other writers, who share the same passion as you....sharing ideas, marketing plans, different writing styles and hearing about the progress and trails that each other is having in their journey to becoming a published author. It truly is a journey, with many twists, turns and bumps in the road, but to hold the finished product in your hands makes the long hard journey worthwhile.

First Copies!

I’m sure even the most seasoned writer can remember when he/she held the first copies of their first book. The Map, was released in both hardcover and softcover. Now I’m even more motivated than ever to complete the second Logan Nash adventure, 2012: Mayan Cenote.

The Map - A Logan Nash Adventure


My name is Dave Burdett, author of "The Map", the first book in the Logan Nash Adventure series of novels. For more information about my recently released book, or myself, I welcome you to visit my website:
                       The Map
        A Logan Nash Adventure

When eccentric billionaire philanthropist Colton Braxton III is diagnosed with leukemia, he concocts a wild scheme. Always the black sheep of his family, he plans a treasure quest—his chance to be known for what he truly is—a passionate adventurer with a spirit that defies his social status. His bizarre will consists of the ultimate scavenger hunt, one that challenges even the most hardcore adventurer.
A copy of the map to the mystery fortune ends up in the hands of adventurer Logan Nash, a budding treasure hunter who has forsaken that life after a near-death encounter with the unscrupulous treasure hunter Dr. Victor Kane.
Nash is drawn back into that life by the hope of not only untold riches, but the promise of the ultimate adventure. Nash’s pursuit of Braxton’s treasure takes him from the depths of the sea to exotic lands spanning all four corners of the Earth where he faces romance, danger, and betrayal—and the nemesis of his past, who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the treasure.
