Today I want to put the spotlight on one of the really top people in the indie publishing world, and one of the mainstays of the Alexandria Publishing Group - the incredible Kai Wilson.
I reckon I've known Kai for a bit over a year now, and in that time I don't think I've seen a more tireless worker and helper for all of us clueless writers out there. Her range of skills is amazing. She's a terrific editor and proofreader. Plus she's extremely cluey when it comes to all things webby. But most of all, she's a brilliant writer, and that's what this post is about. Because today Kai is launching her new novel, Glass Block.
Before I talk about the special events in store, here's a quick blurb to describe what the book is about:
When Big Brother fell out of popularity in the early part of the 21st century it was replaced with ever more ‘realistic’ reality TV shows, till the need for this was replaced with a need for fantasy. In an attempt to resurrect the old format some die hard fans filmed themselves locked in with a recently released murderer. The person to get out got the money from the stream sales at the end. Needless to say they were slaughtered.
Word of this spread on the internet and a ‘sanctioned’ version by the UCPS (United coalition of Prison Services) was established. Brought in from Darkness, one of the cities providing most of the prisoners, most of which he’d been responsible for collaring, Elliot Peters is forced into a nightmare world where the walls are made of glass and people vote as to whether you survive.
Sounds good? There's more. To celebrate the release, Kai is putting on a special event with a whole lot of prizes, including signed books, gift cards, ebooks, letters from Elliot and a case notes file, of your choice, with a short story created - signed and posted to YOU.
So come along and join in the fun at http://www.facebook.com/events/337132569712471/. And for more information about the book, see http://www.facebook.com/DarknessContinuum.
Hopefully you'll enjoy this - another quality release from the Alexandria Publishing Group.
