63,462 Media Outlets Talking About The Oracle, New Novel by Michael Sedge

(Wilmington, Delaware) According to an independent media tracking agency, more than 63,400 media outlets, including Boston Globe, Cincinnati Enquirer, Minnesota Public Radio and the LA Daily News are creating national and international buzz about The Oracle, Michael Sedge’s new, fast-paced novel that brings 427 B.C. mythology of the Greco-Roman peoples to modern Italy.


“The response is greater than we anticipated,” said promotional manager Amanda Cerbone. “Yesterday we took in a specialty order for 400 books. Last week we signed an Italian language licensing agreement with Ciesse Edizioni. And we are receiving daily requests for interviews with Mr. Sedge from both national and media such as the radio program American Dream and the Andrews Gazette. We are also locking in appearances at the Book Expo America and Frankfurt International Book Fair and talking to USO organizers for a possible author’s tour that would cover U.S. military bases in Europe, Africa, and Middle East.”


In a book review, veteran journalist J. Jacobs wrote, “If things that scratch the drainpipes and window screens makes you glance about…and the unattached bump in the dark makes you fretful…then you’ll delight as Michael Sedge begins in Cumae, an ancient Greek colony, then takes you around modern Italy and pushes you into the past of the ancients in The Oracle. It will fulfill all that stuff that makes you go…What was that? Don’t miss it. Don’t miss The Oracle.”


Living in Southern Italy for nearly four decades, Sedge has written extensively on the Mediterranean region, including engagements as a correspondent for The Associated Press, assignment writer for Discovery Channel, and contributing editor to Scientific American Discovering Archaeology Magazine. In The Oracle, he draws upon his passion for history in a well woven tale of murder, mystery, and mythology.


Sedge’s last book, The Lost Ships of Pisa, received the President of Italy’s Best Book of the Year Award as well as the “Rustichello of Pisa” Prize for International Journalism from the City of Pisa. It was also selected as a featured title by the Discovery Channel Book Club.


“We’re seeking a large publishing house partners in the United States and UK,” added Cerbone, “who can facilitate the distribution challenges that a small publisher cannot meet. In addition we are aggressively pursuing new, foreign language partners.”
