From release/information:

First time author Paul Newell sent in a copy of his novel The Turning, published by Appian Publishing (his own company?). I've not had a chance to read the novel, but Newell's production and presentation is slick and eye-catching. His website promotes both himself and his work admirably and new authors yet to break into the market via orthodox routes could learn much from Newell's approach.

You folks can just see for yourself if the novel is any good (after you download the first chapter from Newell's website) but I hope it's not as overwritten as the rear cover copy, which states "This is fiction... that promises to teach you something", which would imply that I want to be taught, that I need to be taught, and that I choose this novel to be the instrument of that teaching - rather than as a instrument of leisure and entertainment. Not so!
