New York, NY, October 11, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- 28-year-old Virginia native Matt Carson is bringing a revolution to bookstores on October 15th, 2007 with his debut novel, On a Hill They Call Capital. Already available online at Amazon.com, the paperback will be made available in Barnes & Noble and Borders nationwide.
On a Hill They Call Capital is the fast-paced, high intensity, politically charged first novel from the multi-talented Carson. Following a band of eight good ol’ Southern boys, On a Hill They Call Capital is the story of average Americans fed up with standing idly by as their liberties and freedoms are systematically stripped away by the US Government.
Stressing the theme of a non-violent revolution, Carson’s novel takes readers through the temerarious story involving kidnapping, camaraderie, and chance. While the novel is short, it is packed with action, as well as facts every American should—but doesn’t necessarily—already know. Included in the endnotes are the Bill of Rights, excerpts from the Patriot Act, and quotes from some of our most influential political leaders. Carson, acknowledging that such an important book with such an important lesson should be in the hands of our leaders, has sent signed copies of his On a Hill They Call Capital to all 435 members of Congress.
Carson’s interest in spreading the word on political rights violations and preserving our social liberties are only continued with the release of On a Hill They Call Capital. Matt’s revolutionary spirit was first on display when he was in college, developing the Students’ Rights Administration at West Virginia University whose sole purpose was to combat the school administration’s dry fraternity and anti-tailgating policies in hopes of returning WVU to its glorious spot as the nation’s number one party school.
Carson has since come a long way. No longer fighting for the right to party, but rather for his civil rights, Carson believes that his story must be told no matter what the cost. His sensational novel was deemed too controversial by a premiere publishing house and, with fears that the book’s content was seditious, Carson decided to self-publish his story under the aptly name “Freestate Press.”
While On a Hill They Call Capital is classified as a work of fiction, there are those readers out there who believe it is a coded message to other revolutionaries like Carson. Though Carson won’t speak to the rumors of an organized revolution surrounding his story, he will let readers know that there is a follow-up novel in the works, which picks up where On a Hill They Call Capital leaves off.
