Fiction author Scott Sigler today released EarthCore
- the world's first podcast-only novel. Unlike other e-books and paper books, you can't find this one in stores, you can't download the full audio, and the only way to find out what happens is to subscribe to the podcast. Sigler will release an hour of audio each week, creating a format similar to weekly television suspense shows with continuing storylines, such as "24" and "Battlestar Galactica."
to download the prologue, first podcast out of the total of 20.
Deep below a desolate Utah mountain lies the largest platinum deposit ever discovered. A billion-dollar find, it waits for any company that can drill a world's record mine shaft, three miles under the surface. EarthCore is the company with the technology, the resources and the guts to go after the mother lode. Young executive Connell Kirkland is the company's driving force, pushing himself and those around him to uncover the massive treasure. But at three miles below the surface, where the rocks are so hot they burn bare skin, something has been waiting for centuries. Waiting ... and guarding. Kirkland and EarthCore are about to find out first-hand why this treasure has never been unearthed.
