Book Preview: One Child

One Child

One Child is the new thriller by best-selling author Jeff Buick, which you can begin reading NOW online at onechildonline.com:

One Child is a story that takes place over a 30 day period starting July 27th. Each day the story unfolds and new chapters will be released. Follow along in real-time, interact with the characters and watch as the events happen around you.

One Child Facebook page, synopsis:

Halima, a small girl in Kandahar, Afghanistan, dreams she changes the world.

U2, the most popular rock band in the world, prepares to take the stage in Moscow.

There is no apparent connection between the two, yet the threads of destiny are pulling them together. And when they collide, people across the globe watch in fascination.

One Child is a reflection of how our world is now, and how it could be. It digs beneath the surface of war-torn Afghanistan through Halima’s eyes. It exposes the cost of greed. It shares the anguish of a young American soldier and the tenacity of a Wall Street MBA who learns that the business world can be an ugly monster.

From the day you meet Halima, to the moment U2 walks onstage, One Child will rock your world.

I was recently contacted and asked to review this new novel, and will be receiving an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) shortly. The book will be available for sale on August 25th, but in the meantime go ahead and get started reading online, well reading and a whole lot more...

The innovative marketing strategy by publisher Enthrill Entertainment is diverse to say the least. Of course the daily dose of the book online, with songs and videos.

Follow the book on Facebook, not only the book, but the actual characters will have Facebook pages and will respond to comments.

The corporations in the book will have actual websites, there is even a radio station - WKIO 510 in New York delivers the daily news and book happenings.

I just started reading, and the first thing I noticed (unlike a hardback book) while reading this online version you can click on the character names for more information... cool!

Will the online reader or the hand-held reader replace the hardback book? Just last week, Amazon reported that it's selling more electronic books than hardcover editions. Time will tell.

So what are you waiting for - sign up now to hear more of this intriguing story!
