A "SYMBOL of a real "TWEET"!
Here is FEATURE BOOK # TWO:
...THE long awaited "SYMBOL"
THE LOST SYMBOL
BY DAN BROWN
ABOUT THE BOOK (WHAT WE KNOW):
Dan Brown's publisher, Doubleday, has refused to ship advance copies. The appetites of readers have been whetted with tweeted clues and "Today" show scavenger hunts. Not a single plot twist has been leaked during Brown's five years of research, a feat that even "Harry Potter" creator J.K. Rowling couldn't pull off.
All the public knows at this point, six days before the tome hits stores, is that fictional Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon will scour the streets of Washington to uncover the capital city's secrets in just 12 hours. How Brown will make 12 hours stretch to fill 528 pages is yet another mystery. Before you can even crack the sequel's cover, you're already embroiled in a cliffhanger.
"With the clues and puzzles that have been provided by the publisher, there's been a lot of activity on the blogosphere about what this could be. It gives the opportunity to create that kind of community discussion. Everyone likes to out-puzzle everyone else," said Patricia Bostelman, vice president of marketing at Barnes and Noble.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Dan Brown is the author of numerous #1 bestselling novels, including The Da Vinci Code, which has sold more than 80 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best selling novels of all time. Named one of the World's 100 Most Influential People by Time Magazine, he has appeared in the pages of Newsweek, Forbes, People, GQ, The New Yorker, and others. His novels are published in 51 languages around the world. His next novel, The Lost Symbol, releases September 15, 2009.
