I have done the first part; authored 5 commercial fiction thrillers and been successful in having a couple of these reviewed by industry experts (see their comments below). Then I invested in creating an e-book distribution website www.indieoriginals.com. Now I am now seeking the right business partner to take these main stream and become a powerful business team in the literary world. I am looking for someone who knows how to leverage internet social media; someone proven as a blogging and twitter genius......believes in my skills and wants to share in the financial upside.
Lou Aronica: Owner of Fiction Studio. Former Deputy Publisher of Bantam and former Publisher of Berkley Books and Avon Books. “ Legacy of Greed is a highly commercial project. Legacy of Greed is a crisply written thriller with a harrowing and distinctive hook. Al Birtch did a powerful job creating sympathetic characters and throwing them into the maelstrom. I think there’s a strong market for this novel among readers of Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz, Douglas Preston, and James Rollins.”
· Keith Ferrell: Former editor-in-chief of Omni magazine “ Al Birtch combines a deep understanding of international business and politics with well-drawn characters and a sharp, sure sense of human evil. The conspiracy at the heart of the novel is all too plausible, its consequences believable, terrifying, heartbreaking...it scared the hell out of me.”
· Ben Famiglietti: former executive assistant to Harvey Weinstein. Legacy of Greed is a taught thriller with appeal in both the book and screen formats. The resolution is evocative and highly cinematic.
