Glenn and his company have been changing the way that audiences consume media and content, and today Glenn and his publishing division, Mercury Ink, are launching an innovative approach to books with the new series "Wrath and Righteousness". The ten episode e-book series by New York Times bestselling author Chris Stewart is an exciting tale packed with thrilling action and underscored by a story of war, love and spirituality. But rather than release the series over a decade like most popular fiction series have done in the past, "Wrath and Righteousness" will have all ten parts released over the course of a year!
"We're bringing them out quickly because I don't want readers to lose the track of the story," Glenn told the Wall Street Journal.
Glenn read the books, then released as "The Great and Terrible" series, during vacation two years ago. In them, he saw several parallels to the current state of the world and global politics.
"A lot of this stuff in the book is really happening now. You see how volatile the Middle East is and how fragile the United States is? You want to see what Occupy Wall Street really looks like in the end? Wait until you read this," Glenn said on radio.
The WSJ explains that the books have been edited down into "a series of 10 e-books that blend Middle East politics, techno high jinks, and end-of-the-world derring-do, while cutting the references to Mormon scripture and gospel beliefs."
"It's something that nobody's ever tried to do, put them out in episodes like this. I don't know if it will work, but this is a book that is wildly entertaining," Glenn told listeners.
More than a simple techno-thriller, Wrath & Righteousness examines the eternal battle between Light and Darkness while also asking one of the fundamental questions of our existence: what is mankind’s relationship to the spiritual world? Packed with thrilling action and underscored by a story of war, love and spirituality, Wrath & Righteousness has been described by Glenn as “the Left Behind series for a new generation.”
As part of the launch of the series, GBTV and Mercury Ink are partnering together for an exciting new e-book promotion where GBTV subscribers will be able to download the first episode of the series for free!
Readers who are not interest in a GBTV subscription can buy the first installment for $2.99, but honestly - why would you want to do that?
