Graham’s Charlotte Release Day

Graham’s Charlotte is officially released!

Graham’s Charlotte is the first novel by award-winning novelist Drew Farnsworth.  The paperback book is now available from all major retailers, and the e-book is available on Amazon.com.

When a mysterious stranger gives Mads Riley a cell phone that knows everything, her life changes forever. Mads has the power to unlock the secrets of the universe – past, present, and future. The phone predicts earthquakes, tells her what’s on the other side of a locked door, and even reveals the trick to get out of last night’s math homework.

Mads is soon asked to use the device to break into the most heavily defended spy agency in the world. She’s told it’s the only way to save her mother’s life.

Will her mission save someone she loves, or is she betraying the country that her father died for?

Drew Farnsworth is the grand champion of The Great Novel Contest 2013.

This book is available on Amazon here, or on Barnes and Noble here.

PR: Capital Offense Entertains 1,000+ Readers in First Week

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COLUMBUS—September 16th, 2013—Columbus Press may have an internet sensation on its hands.  The company released the first installment of Capital Offense, a Columbus-based serial novel, on September 2nd to a wide and growing audience.  The site—www.capitaloffensebook.com—reached well over 1,000 viewers in its first week.  And the number is projected to grow.  A new 500-1,000 word segment is posted weekday mornings to keep readers coming back for more.

The first-person narrative begins when Kurt Stevens, the executioner for the state of Ohio, discovers his wife Tonya dead in their bathtub.  Kurt is driven from his Hilliard home as the cops comb the crime scene, convinced that it was not a suicide.  When he arrives at the London Correctional Institute for a scheduled execution, he receives a mysterious phone call from the land line in the booth.  As the suspicion around him grows, Kurt is forced to find a way out of the prison without being seen—and find his wife’s killer without being found.

Readers are also finding exclusive content—including clues, photos and video—through the novel’s many social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads.  Capital Offense will be posted online through January 31st, when it will also be released in traditional formats.

Capital Offense Web Serial Launched

We are proud to announce the launch of a first-of-its-kind web serial.  The first installment of Capital Offense by Kurt Stevens hit the web at www.CapitalOffensebook.com this morning, September 2, 2013.

The entire novel will be presented free-of-charge on the web in daily installments through January 31, 2014.  Upon completion of the serial web release, the book will be distributed through traditional channels, both print and e-book and will be available from most major retailers.

We believe that its time for the publishing industry to dramatically change its operating model.  E-books are a small capitulation to the vast opportunities the digital world has to offer us.  We’re happy to take the risk and to experiment with new release models that bring the content closer to where readers want to engage with media.

Please support us in this endeavor, and don’t miss a beat of the action at www.CapitalOffenseBook.com.
