Scott Sigler (available early Thursday morning only) is the New York Times Bestselling author of INFECTED and CONTAGIOUS, major hardcover thrillers from Crown Publishing. He landed his book deal by giving away multiple novels as free, serialized podcasts that generated a large online following and saw over four million downloads of the individual episodes. Scott reinvented book publishing when he released EARTHCORE as the world's first "podcast-only" novel. Released in twenty weekly episodes, EARTHCORE harkened back to the days of serialized radio fiction and picked up 10,000 subscribers along the way. His next podcast novel, ANCESTOR, drew 30,000 listeners. The buzz caused Sirius Satellite to pick up the novel, making it the first audiobook serialized on the satellite network. When ANCESTOR was released in print from a small independent publisher, it hit #7 overall on Amazon.com, and was #1 in Horror and #1 in SciFi -- all despite no marketing, no advertising and no media coverage. Scott's innovative use of technology puts him at the forefront of modern-day publishing, and has garnered brand-name exposure among hundreds of thousands of fiction fans and technology buffs. He's been covered in Entertainment Weekly, the New York Times, NPR, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Publisher's Weekly, The Huffington Post, Business Week and Fangoria. INFECTED was optioned by and is currently in development as a motion picture from Rogue Pictures.
