Press Release: January 11, 2016
2016 marks the launch of a ridiculous project for British writer Lee Isserow, as the former screenwriter will be writing and publishing a book on the first Monday of every month until he runs out of steam, or goes completely loses the plot.
The experiment in literary prolificness is likely the first of its kind, and will put his creative capability and willpower to stay away from Netflix to the test.
A former resident of London, New York and Los Angeles, Isserow is currently a freelance filmmaker in Liverpool. Having dallied with writing for movies, television, commercials and web content for over fifteen years, he's hardly made a name for himself.
What he has done, is accumulate IP. Over a hundred and fifty heavily developed projects intended for screen, crossing all genres, that he will now adapt for the page.
As each of the projects was initially intended for the audience's viewing pleasure, Isserow is curating soundtracks for each of the novellas, to wind and weave the reader through the plot.
He's also using his prowess behind the camera to create cinematic video trailers for each of the titles, the first of which lives at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=383sPgdQWGg.
The first Book A Month
January saw the release of the awkwardly titled “@”, a Twitter-themed thriller in which a young girl finds her strings pulled by mysterious forces hiding behind the usernames of her friends, forcing her to commit crimes whilst the lives of her loved ones hang in the balance.
Running at 30k words / 154 pages, it's a swift read, and intended as such; a movie on the page, with a scene-setting soundtrack for those who canread fast enough to keep to the beat.
Each of the monthly books, or BAMS, as Isserow insists on calling them, is to be released as an ebook, paperback and audiobook. All will be available through http://ABAM.info, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.
