Business Name

Aligned Action, Inc.

What do you do?

This project is a book cover for a business political thriller written by Ron Wilder, CEO/Founder of Aligned Action. Aligned Action's business is primarily executive and business coaching and consulting.

Story Concept -- Starting in 2012, the incandescent light bulb, invented by Thomas Edison, will be illegal in the United States as Congress mandated a shift to compact fluorescent bulbs. The story starts with an Al Qaida plot where the terrorists exploit the mercury in CFLs to cause a widespread public panic. Meanwhile, retired Navy Captain Tom Jackson, now an entrepreneur, has started a high risk venture to manufacture incandescent bulbs in the hopes they will become legal again. Toms plans are thwarted by a corrupt congressman and a progressive media star, Elaine Mitchell. After dramatic Congressional hearings, Tom is on the run as a fugitive, trying to return home to the company he built. The story culminates with a secession crisis at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, where the first shots of the civil war were fired in 1861.
