"It's important to remember the past, and I hope to continue this (charity) tradition every year on the anniversary of Titanic, not just this one milestone."
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
Canadian author Alexander Galant put his talents as a historical researcher and thriller writer together to pen his novel Depth of Deception (A Titanic Murder Mystery). He released it a week ago as an e-book to coincide with the centennial anniversary of Titanic. "It's connected to - but not about - Titanic," said Alexander Galant about the plot of his novel.
Depth of Deception is set in 1982, where a young woman is found floating on a wooden deck chair in the North Atlantic. She's unconscious, and wearing Edwardian clothing. Her only identification is a ticket for the Titanic. Is it a bizarre case of time-travel or an elaborate hoax?
"As the 100th anniversary approaches," Galant stated, "I want to honour the memory of those who perished on Titanic. We will donate a portion of the proceeds from that day's (April 15, 2012) purchases of Depth of Deception to the Titanic Heritage Trust."
Titanic Heritage Trust is a registered international charitable trust dedicated to preserving artifacts and the memory of Titanic. "It's important to remember the past," Galant added. "And I hope to continue this tradition every year on the anniversary of Titanic, not just this one milestone."
Depth of Deception can be purchased at an introductory rate of $0.99 from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007O3IKTY as well as in other e-book formats from Smashwords at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/144531.
Alexander had hoped that the softcover version would be available in time but plans to include the hard copy sales on the 101st anniversary. For now he hopes many people will download the e-book version to make it worthwhile.
