RussellBrooks.jpg

Canadian writer, Russell Brooks has created an innovative way to build a fan base for his action thriller novel, Pandora’s Succession. He hired an actor to read serialized excerpts of his novel and even had the recording scored by a professional composer. The result? A compelling story worthy of editors’ and literary agent’s attention. The serialized audio excerpts can be found at: http://pandorabook1.com/ has garnered a lot of attention in the online community.

Although, a writer of color, Brooks chose to create a main character and storyline that is mainstream to broaden the appeal. He is an example of a writer who has not waited for opportunities to come to him but rather took the bull by its horns. Literary agents, you might want to take a look at this writer. He is worthy of notice.

To contact this undiscovered talent, you may email him.
