Beginning in 2014, John Luke released a series of books inspired by his family entitled “Be Your Own Duck Commander”. The juvenile fiction set includes four books, “Willie’s Redneck Time Machine”, “Si in Space”, “Jase & the Deadliest Hunt”, and “Phil and the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-Ca”; the launch of the books show-cased his talent and increased his net worth as well.
