I've been very happy with my Kindle success, writing exactly what excites me, exactly how I want to write it.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 18, 2015
Author Rod Pennington's "The Fourth Awakening" and "The Charon Family Adventures" eBook series, as well as his new unpublished action manuscript, have been optioned for film and television by Carole Myers, Executive Producer at World Media Partners.
One of the hottest authors on Amazon Kindle, all of Pennington's past twelve titles immediately hit #1 in multiple categories. His immense popularity earned him a Featured Author story on the Amazon Home page.
The Charon Family Adventure Series is a dark comedy political satire series about a dysfunctional family of four of the world's best assassins.
The Fourth Awakening series dives into metaphysical mysticism and science with six bestselling thrillers. The series features a woman who gets a "do over" with her life when she investigates a mysterious disappearance of a dozen of the world’s best known scientists that leads her on an enlightenment quest.
"I've been very happy with my Kindle success, writing exactly what excites me, exactly how I want to write it, all while living here in beautiful Jackson Hole," said Pennington. "I have to admit, though, it will be a lot of fun to see the Charon Family and my heroine in The Fourth Awakening, Penelope Drayton Spence, come to life."
Pennington began his novel writing career in the Men's Action genre in the 1980s. In addition to his twelve novels, he has sold or optioned numerous screenplays and treatments.
With The Fourth Awakening novels, he found a new audience for creative New Age drama. His recent Spanish language release of The Fourth Awakening, titled "El Cuarto Despertar," became the #1 Kindle Foreign Language eBook.
The Charon Family series offers six titles, including "The Family Bundle," a trilogy of the first three novels. All have ranked #1 in Dark Comedy, Satire and Political categories. At one time, all six Charon Family books filled the #1-#6 positions in the Kindle Humorous Dark Comedy category while four of The Fourth Awakening books held positions #1-#4 in New Age Mysticism.
Myers will also be developing Pennington's ready-for-publication new manuscript, entitled "Indweller." This is a rapid-fire action and intrigue story with a hero of such massive originality that he deserves his own genre.
"From the first page of my first Rod Pennington novel, I was jaw-dropped. The action was moving so fast and was so thrilling that I couldn't stop reading," said Myers. "He crafts this colorful matrix of mystery, action and fascinating characters that translate perfectly to the screen. Rod turned out an astounding TV pilot script in a day, too."
Myers cut her teeth on the NBC TV megahit series "Miami Vice," then developed and produced "The Marshal," an ABC/Paramount prime time drama series.
She optioned numerous TV series and specials to production companies, networks and studios, based on valuable book and life rights, and has executive produced pilots, series and specials, including the television series "Night of the Proms," which earned her the Mid-America 2014 EMMY Award for Arts/Entertainment Series/Special.
With the Pennington titles, Myers expects a bidding war.
"Both book series bring exactly what networks and studios desire - high concept, original characters, brilliant storytelling and a built-in audience," Myers added. "With an extraordinary, prolific talent like Rod Pennington, there are really no limits."
