New York, NY, August 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Maurice Woodson, whom is best known for his exploits in the music industry as well as his experience writing for and his involvements in magazines such as NOMA Beauty Magazine, Essence, Spice Teen Music Magazine, Word Up, Right On, Class and Billboard, is ready to make his mark as the author of a new novel. However, this is not his first published book. Woodson authored the celebrated non-Fiction Child Abduction: How To Protect Your Children, which is a survival guide that educates children and parents on the topic of child predators and abductions. This was an important book to him because at age 9 he climbed into the back of a strangers car but luckily survived the experience. He wanted to make sure his children and others never repeated his mistake.
This time around Woodson tackles the world of fiction. Blood Don’t Lie is a roller coaster of a thriller. The Suburban Herald’s “book report” calls it “One of the best novels to come out in some time. Maurice Woodson’s characters are so real and believable that one would swear to have met one or two of them on line in the grocery store. Blood Don’t Lie kept me guessing all the way to the end and the surprise ending took my breath away. It was truly so good that I couldn’t put it down.” said book critic Sean Jacobs.
According to Mr. Jacobs, Woodson is a literary star on the rise and he isn't the only one to think so--even Hollywood has an eye on Blood Don’t Lie. According to Hollywood insiders, Jon Peters and a partnering company as well as CT Productions are looking at the novel for a possible movie adaption (Which is amazing considering the novel just became available online and wont hit bookstores for a month.)
When asked how he came up with the premise of the book, Woodson responded: “I had fallen behind in my child support and ended up going to jail for a short period of time and during the first couple of days, I was given a magazine to read to kill time and an article in that magazine sparked an idea that became the basis for the whole novel. I won’t tell you the name of the magazine because I don’t want to take away from or spoil some of the surprises of the story, but it along with the fact that I always wanted to write murder mystery thriller led to me to create this novel that I am very excited about and proud of.”
