Waltham, Massachusetts (PRWEB) October 4, 2008
If more people are watching TV instead of curling up with a good novel, a new series of novelettes, "The Conscience of Abe's Turn," may provide an alternative, because it is designed and packaged like a modern television drama.
Author J. Timothy King explains: "I wanted to create something more like a TV show than like a series of novels, with shorter, tighter, individual episodes."
All of the episodes feature the same characters, setting, and themes, and they have connecting storylines, just like a modern television drama.
Originally posted at the series website AbesTurn.com, the episodes are being released in books, each about the size of a novel, each containing 4 episodes. Each book also includes "Bonus Extras" similar to those found on DVDs of television shows. The first 4 episodes have been released, with a planned 24-episode story arc.
The Conscience of Abe's Turn is about four civil-rights activists who resort to espionage in order to challenge the police-state tactics of their home town, Abe's Turn.
"It's extremely political," Mr. King explains, "but the heroes have just as many conservative sympathies as they do liberal."
The Conscience of Abe's Turn is currently on sale at http://AbesTurn.com/book1, at Amazon.com, and at BarnesAndNoble.com, with introductory pricing through election day, November 4.
