Everything is on track for the book to be available on Amazon, Kindle, and in the CreateSpace Book Store on December 5. Stay tuned for more — it’s happening.
UPDATE 2 DEC: It has been available (early) for a few days on Amazon but the “Official” release date is still December 5. That’s why I’m not promoting it as available. A big thank you to those of you who are finding it — and please, if I may shamelessly say so — if you find it worthy after reading it, please go on its Amazon page and write a review, and click “helpful” on the reviews you like. We are getting some nice reviews already. I particularly like this review, by Rick Barry:
A Story Worthy of Edgar Rice Burroughs Himself
Michael Sellers has taken a story worthy of Edgar Rice Burroughs himself and told it with style, skill, fairness, thoroughness – and great affection for the original material. He narrates the gripping saga of the 100-year-old novel’s long march to the big screen, during which time much of Burroughs’ creative genius was ‘strip-mined’ by such later icons as Lucas and Cameron. Along the way Sellers treats the reader to an insider’s view of today’s ‘gods of Hollywood,’ who are not the autocratic and capricious moguls of a bygone era but equally aggressive, corporate warriors navigating the narrow straits between ever-adjusting, long-term, strategic visions and those pesky, quarterly earnings reports. In this world, cinematic artistry becomes a consumer product; and even a $250-million tentpole film can be sacrificed on the altar of an executive coup or the next acquisition.
In true Burroughs style, this timely tale ends with its own, real-life cliffhanger: will the concluding installments of the Burroughs/Stanton trilogy ever see the light of day, or, more to the point, the warm, inviting light of an IMAX theater? Against all odds, Sellers shows how that just might happen.
