New African American Historical Fiction E-Book, "Gathering of the Owls," Released on the Kindle
Nationwide (June 4, 2012) -- According to author C.L. Thompson, "It is time to take the reins of future history and start writing the stories ourselves and for ourselves. Major publishing companies have the idea that African Americans don't read enough. So they only sign up authors that write about what they think we want to read about. For example; 'books for reluctant readers'. But on other hand, in our culture, we do communicate primarily by oral means, and place value on what people say, and on what we hear, rather than what we find out through print. As a result, we don't raise our children to place value on reading or writing."
But Thompson has gone beyond traditional design to develop an exhilarating way to influence African Americans to read more without changing who we are and what we are accustom to.
Thompson has written a contemporary African American historical fiction Kindle e-book called, Gathering of Owls: Blood Pressure, The Graphic Novel (see - www.amazon.com/kindle), which has been proven to appeal to universal groups of readers. Not only has this novel evolved to meet the ever changing needs of today's market, but was written to teach about the past, move onward into the future, designed to make reading fashionably cool again, and to ensure the most successful showing possible. Gathering of Owls also comes with an online media center (www.gatheringofowls.com) which is getting millions of visitors and supporters.
The term, 'Evolutionary Technology' simply means an innovation that improves a product in an existing market in ways that customers are expecting. And that's exactly what Gathering of Owls" does.
According to Thompson, "It's like asking someone what they see when they look at a painting. Sometimes, there isn't much to decipher, while often you will have people arguing over the true meaning. Same goes for this graphic novel Kindle e-book; whether you're reading it to gain knowledge or just for the heck of seeing mind- blowing pictures, this is the one to get!"
He continues, "When readers read this book, the panels form a basic framework of thought, around which flow the dialogs in text and the descriptions that make the frame move. It's like watching a motion picture where each graphic panel represents one frame in the reel and your mind is the projector, the screen and the audience."
"The voice that you hear in your head is far stronger in this book than the others, because you're seeing the detailed built, face and nationality of the characters as they speak. Another rather valuable difference is the way this graphic novels' author can drop subtle hints that go a long way in explaining things that are not really in line with the main story, but are important nonetheless. Small things that explain the scene in such detail can only be found in this graphic novel. This is possibly the best e-book graphic novel you can get for your Kindle," says Thompson.
Man's inhumanity to man is the theme of this dynamic novel. In these days of fundamental transparency, Facebook openness, and wickedly revealing WikiLeaks, it's easy to imagine that all is as it is seen, that everything happens out in the open, or at least is swiftly exposed. Don't be deceived. The world still has its secrets and clandestine places that shelter deep dark truths. For this novel, readers will submerge into the underworld, shining a light of consciousness into the dim corners of perdition. Readers stare into the depths, taking a look at dark networks and criminal master minds, cheats and con men, champions, rivals, unnatural wickedness, history, and technology, who seek to exploit the basic impulses; like openness, optimism, freedom, and faith in progress, for better or worse. But, while standing over these people backs and peering into their world; be careful...They are always looking over their shoulders to only stare back. Will readers see a new way, a mirror image of themselves perhaps or just a façade of their imaginations? So it tends to leave two questions. Who are you or who is who? Welcome to the Gathering of Owls.
It begins on a Virginia plantation in 1817, and ends up in modern day Africa. Against a backdrop of today's biggest cities, the age-old institution of dealing in slavery focuses on a secret society that has survived 190 years. Now in modern times, the organization not only survived as a secret society, it thrived as one. But with the changing of times, so has CANA Over the years, the organization has split into four branches. And Manican (a high ranking member) has began to see the perfect opportunity to rise to power and ensure his legacy by bringing together all four branches to form one whole once again; while revealing the hidden and often shocking history of a secret society so undetectable, monolithic, and silently corporate that the earlier members dubbed it 'The Owls'.
Gathering of Owls unravels the shrouded world of the transatlantic slave trade. Once known as The Owls, this secret society is now dubbed CANA, with its tentacles reaching around the world. The time has come to unite the four branches of the organization under one leader, but will the merger take place? The book examines the true meaning of freedom. An action packed epic read of unparallel magnitude!
Thompson says, "In the words of Samuel L. Jackson, Gathering of Owls is the right type of kindle e-book, at the right place, at the right time, for a right price."
