'''EarthCore''' was originally published in 2001 by ''iPublish'', an ''AOL/Time Warner'' imprint. With the novel doing well as a promotional [[Wikipedia:ebook|ebook]], ''Time Warner'' was planning on publishing the novel.  However, the economic slump following [[Wikipedia:September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks|September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks]], caused ''Time Warner'' to do away with the imprint in 2004.  [[Scott Sigler|Sigler]] decided to start podcasting his novel in March 2005, as ''the worlds first [[podcast only]] novel'' to build hype and garner an audience for his work. [[Scott Sigler|Sigler]] considered it a natural progression to offer the book as a free audio download. In 2006, [[Scott Sigler|Sigler]] was able to get ''EarthCore'' offered as a paid download on [[Wikipedia:iTunes|iTunes]].  Another milestone was set when ''EarthCore'' became one of the first audiobooks broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio, second only to [[Scott Sigler|Sigler’s]] other novel, ''[[Ancestor]]''.

+
==Synopsis==
+
Deep below a desolate Utah mountain lies the largest platinum deposit ever discovered. A billion-dollar find, it waits for any company that can drill a world's record, three-mile-deep mine shaft.
+
 
+
[[EarthCore (company)|EarthCore]] is the company with the technology, the resources and the guts to go after the mother lode. Young executive [[Connell Kirkland]] is the [[EarthCore (company)|company's]] driving force, pushing himself and those around him to uncover the massive treasure.
+
 
+
But [[Connell Kirkland|Kirkland]] and [[EarthCore (company)|EarthCore]] are not the first to find this treasure. The mountain's history reveals two centuries of disappearances, murder, and insanity.
+
 
+
The discovery of ancient platinum knives, razor-sharp despite lying untouched for 1,000 years, reveals evidence of an ancient culture. If the artifacts are genuine, they show a pre-historic empire that once spanned from the Southern tip of South America all the way up through the American Southwest.
+
 
+
Wealth and fame lie under that Utah mountain, but at three miles below the surface, where the rocks are so hot they burn bare skin, something has been waiting for centuries. Waiting ... and guarding. [[Connell Kirkland|Kirkland]] and [[EarthCore (company)|EarthCore]] are about to find out first-hand why this treasure has never been unearthed.
