SPEED OF LIGHT FOR SUMMER READ
If you enjoyed "The Hunger Games," "The Da Vinci Code," or "Twilight" you will love the new novel "Speed of Light" by Lee Baker. Larry King of CNN said, "Speed of Light by Lee Baker is a terrific read that takes you on a fast-paced, thrilling experience and journey with twists and turns that surprise and entertain! It`s a book you won`t want to put down. Lee Baker makes a strong impact with his first novel, and reveals himself as a master storyteller!"
Stephen Sobisky of Paralight Films and Sandman Studios, who has worked on Armageddon, Independence Day, Shrek and many other feature films, is currently developing "Speed of Light" into a feature film. Sobisky said, "This film will be the next `Matrix` or `Inception.` The mind blowing concepts of Pierce Black and the world his mind enters following the speed of light test flight will transfer brilliantly to the screen."
Baker said, "As I wrote the book, I fell in love with the characters and it is great to see that everyone else is falling in love with them also."
The ebook is available now at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com for $3.99 and the printed version is scheduled to be in stores in August, 2011. You can read it before it goes to print, and if you are a movie buff, you can see the initial concept art for the feature film at www.speednovel.com.
