The Pineville Heist started out as an award-winning screenplay by Lee Chambers and Todd Gordon and is also a novel adaptation converted by ebookpartnership.com. The book is now a #1 thriller on Amazon.

The Pineville Heist is a fun story about a high school student that witnesses a murder, ends up with bag of stolen bank money and is then hunted down inside his school.

Author Lee Chambers listed the title with Amazon’s Kindle Select program with a couple of free promo days in early April, and within a day The Pineville Heist was ranked #3 for all books positioned next to the Hunger Games. This lead to a massive escalating downloads up to 1100 an hour! For two days it was the #1 ranked Thriller and the #1 YA Mystery. Pretty impressive considering the book’s ranking the night before was 188,423. Over 27,000 people downloaded the book to their kindle, eReader or iPad in April. While most of those are free downloads, The Pineville Heist sold more in 8 hours than the previous 8 months on all sales channels: COMBINED. Total sales for April was 1607 books sold.

Plans are now underway to make the movie version with Twilight star Booboo Stewart (Seth Clearwater)  to star.  “The book is a great way to develop a loyal fan base for the film. I really enjoyed reading it”,  said Booboo.
