Scribd is very excited to announce that Hugh Howey, author of the New York Times bestselling thriller, Wool will be stopping by Scribd Headquarters in San Francisco this next Tuesday, March 19. Howey will be here from 3-4 p.m. to do a moderated Q&A, reading and book signing.
Wool is a post-apocalyptic thriller that has been receiving a ton of positive reviews this week. Howey is currently embarking on an 12-city national book tour, so it is quite exciting that he is able to stop into our corner of the publishing world.
Aside from the praise the book has received, it has garnered significant attention for Mr. Howey’s back-story this week in the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post. He got a unique start in publishing, writing third-shift while working 30-hours a week at a college bookstore. He initially sold his book for less than a dollar on Amazon and most recently, spurned seven-figure offers from all the major publishing houses in favor of Simon & Schuster as long as he could retain the digital rights to his work.
As if that were not enough, Ridley Scott bought the film rights and with recent success of “The Hunger Games”, it would not be surprising to see Wool serialized and built as both a book and film franchise.
If you have time during your busy day at 3 p.m., please come by and take part in this wonderful opportunity to connect and meet with a high-profile author.
