The MOTHER Principle - In Stores Wednesday, August 19th


Read Furiously Makes Print Debut with The MOTHER Principle

Read Furiously is proud to announce its first print trade run with The MOTHER Principle, an original graphic novel series created by comic book writer Adam Wilson, novelist Samantha Atzeni, and artist Alicia Padron.  The MOTHER Principle, Volume 1: MOTHER Knows Best, is the beginning of a long list of talented authors and creators Read Furiously will be publishing in association with their movement “to read well and to read often.”

The MOTHER Principle is a dystopian tale of genetically-engineered young women who are struggling to break away from the government agency that created them while coming to terms with their roles within this broken world. In the first volume, Sylvia, Curie, Orleans, Lovelace, Little Sister, and Zel must learn to work together once MOTHER decides she wants her “daughters” to come home. Told in full color images of breathtaking artwork from Padron, Atzeni and Wilson create a story where loss and fear are in a constant battle with courage and loyalty. The hardest lesson the Sisters, and readers, will learn is that MOTHER always knows best.

Once a web series at www.motherprinciple.com, Read Furiously is looking forward to introducing the series to a larger community of readers. The MOTHER Principle is the start to Read Furiously’s dedication to encourage literacy around the world and within the community, while promoting powerful stories with protagonists worthy of our current culture.

Making Life Easier for Yourself and you Favorite Bookseller - A Note from Read Furiously

A Note from Read Furiously
It's official, and we can finally announce it: The MOTHER Principle vol. 1: MOTHER Knows Best will be hitting shelves on August 19th. It's the first volume in our new graphic novel series, and thanks to our partnerships with distributors like Baker & Taylor and Ingrams, it'll be available in book stores all over the world. From your local independent bookseller, to the Barnes & Noble at the mall, even on Amazon for those of you who choose to go that route.

But, as far as our distribution channels reach, it's important to keep in mind that even though it's available to bookstores all over the world, it might not actually be on some shelves August 19th. There are countless books coming out each week, and it can be overwhelming for a bookstore to keep up with every new title coming out - let alone order it for their shop. Often times stores have to be very discriminating to make sure the titles they're carrying are ones their customers are going to be interested in.

Now we're doing everything we can here at Read Furiously to make sure as many stores as possible know how great The MOTHER Principle is, and that they should carry it in their stores, but with the sheer number of bookstores out there, we can't get to every one. In fact, there will probably be a lot we miss. So it's very likely there will be places that don't know they should be ordering The MOTHER Principle. Especially since it's a graphic novel, and for some bookstores, those aren't even on their radar.

With this in mind, it may be difficult for you, the reader, to get the book. But, we at Read Furiously want to do something to help everyone involved. That's why we've created special Pre-Order cards for The MOTHER Principle.

All you need to do is print out this card and take it to your local bookstore. Not only does it include all the necessary information they'll need to find and order the book, but it lets them know to set it aside just for you.

It's the best way to make sure your local bookstore will have a copy of The MOTHER Principle, and it'll be helping the booksellers out a lot.  So let them know there's a book you want to buy before it even hits shelves.

And we didn't forget about those of you who prefer going to your local library to read your favorite new titles. You can use this card to recommend The MOTHER Principle to your librarians. We should point out that it's possible your library already has a process to follow for recommending new books, so check with them and see if that's the case. But if not, you can give them this card and they'll know all the details they need.

We hope this will make it easier for you to get your hands on a copy of The MOTHER Principle on August 19th no matter where you get it from, and that you're looking forward to the release as much as we are.

Till next time, our Furious Readers.

Read well. Read often. Read Furiously!
