WilliesRedneckTimeMachine-webTyndale House Publishers has announced the upcoming publication of Duck Commander fiction titles, which will release in October. The Duck Commander brand and Robertson family are partnering with Tyndale to bring their promise of faith, family and fun to stories for adult and youth fiction readers. 

A Robertson Family Christmas ($19.99) is a holiday novella about a troubled young man who is surprised to win a contest giving him the opportunity to join the Robertsons for Christmas. Although he’s uninitiated and initially resistant to the “Robertson holiday way,” he ultimately finds hope, love and acceptance in their faith-filled environment. Miss Kay Robertson and Korie Robertson are teaming with Travis Thrasher to bring this story to life.

A four-book juvenile adventure series, “Be Your Own Duck Commander,” will be written by John Luke Robertson, Willie and Korie’s son. The series will feature the main characters of Duck Commander in zany adventures. Targeted at the 8- to 12-year-old age group, the books will give young readers a variety of paths out of trouble and wacky challenges to resolve each story line. The first book in the series, Willie’s Redneck Time Machine ($9.99)is a wild, action-packed journey with wise lessons embedded along the way. Willie has the opportunity to go back to high school and write his younger self a letter, filled with all the sound advice he wished he’d had. The story also includes time-travel stops, including Noah’s ark and the Civil War. Additional titles in this series include Phil & the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-CaSi in Space; and Jase & the Deadliest Hunt.

Tyndale Associate Publisher Karen Watson sees fiction as “the perfect addition” to the Duck Commander brand.

“Tyndale is thrilled to be able to bring our experience in fiction to these projects,” Watson said. “A Robertson Family Christmas will be a nice addition to the holiday season, and we consider John Luke’s ongoing positive influence through the Duck Commander adventure series to be a great way to encourage young readers.”
