Star Trek Mirror Universe eBooks on sale in April

A new month means a new Star Trek eBooks promotion. This month’s featured deal is the Mirror Universe books!  There are five titles on sale for $0.99 each during the month of April. Here they are in original publication order:
 
Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Glass Empires
 
Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Obsidian Alliances
 
Star Trek: Mirror Universe: The Sorrows of Empire
 
Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Shards and Shadows
 
Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions
 
If you haven’t read these before, there are a few things you should know.
 
First, they were written to sync with the depiction of the Mirror Universe as it had been shown through the end of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series, and to coordinate with the ongoing Star Trek literary continuity. Some recent changes to canon on Star Trek: Discovery won’t jibe with these books.
 
Second, The Sorrows of Empire is a greatly expanded and revised version of my original short novel in the first anthology, Glass Empires. For the novel version I nearly doubled the length of the book and made a number of changes and edits to improve upon the original.
 
Third, I contributed to all of these volumes.
In the second anthology, Obsidian Alliances, I wrote the DS9 short novel Saturn’s Children under the pseudonym Sarah Shaw. My short story For Want of a Nail concludes the short-story anthology Shards and Shadows.
 
Fourth (and finally), the events of The Sorrows of Empire, Saturn’s Children, “For Want…”, and Rise Like Lions all have continuity links to my other Star Trek novels (especially my Section 31 books and my TNG trilogy Cold Equations), so get ready to spot some Easter eggs!
 
 

Get all of Star Trek Vanguard for under $9 until March 31

If you’ve been putting off trying the Star Trek Vanguard saga, which I developed with editor Marco Palmieri and on which I alternated writing duties with the team of Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, you can get the whole saga now in eBook form for just $8.91!

As part of a Kindle Monthly Deal, Amazon is offering all nine works that together constitute the Star Trek Vanguard saga for just $0.99 each:


VANGUARD: HARBINGER

VANGUARD: SUMMON THE THUNDER

VANGUARD: REAP THE WHIRLWIND

VANGUARD: OPEN SECRETS

VANGUARD: PRECIPICE

VANGUARD: DECLASSIFIED

VANGUARD: WHAT JUDGMENTS COME

VANGUARD: STORMING HEAVEN

VANGUARD: IN TEMPEST’S WAKE


This is an amazing offer, and there’s no telling when it might come around again, so snag it while you can!

 

Vanguard eBooks just 99 cents through end of March

Of all my contributions to Star Trek literature, the one I had the most fun creating, and remain proudest of, is the STAR TREK VANGUARD saga. It spans seven novels, one anthology, and one novella coda.

The series offers readers a look at what was going on in other parts of the Federation during the time of the Enterprise‘s on-screen missions in The Original Series. The idea was to show that events off-screen precipitated situations that Captain Kirk and his crew encountered, and that actions they took had consequences beyond what was shown on-screen.

I developed the Star Trek Vanguard saga with editor Marco Palmieri and alternated writing privileges with the super-duo of Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore. It was a strange way to collaborate on a series, but it worked for us, and we all had a blast doing it. Working on this series with these wonderful guys was an experience for which I’ll always be grateful.

Now I’m thrilled to report that the entire Star Trek Vanguard saga is on sale in eBook format for just $0.99 per title through the end of March 2018. Get the complete saga—which tells a self-contained Star Trek epic tale—for just $8.91!

Here they are, in reading order and everything:

Harbinger
Summon the Thunder
Reap the Whirlwind
Open Secrets
Precipice
Declassified
What Judgments Come
Storming Heaven
In Tempest’s Wake

Tell all your friends who love Star Trek (especially The Original Series) to get in on this.

Desperate Hours is January’s Kindle Monthly Deal

To celebrate the arrival of new episodes of Star Trek: Discovery on January 7, the folks at Simon & Schuster and Amazon have teamed up to bring Star Trek book fans an awesome Kindle Monthly Deal: for the month of January 2018, the eBook version of my Star Trek: Discovery novel Desperate Hours will be on sale for just $1.99!

Make no mistake, that’s a huge savings. The eBook’s price is normally chained to the cost of the print edition, meaning that some sites were charging as much as $15.99 for the eBook. So this is $14 off the cover price.

Bottom line: If you’ve been putting off picking up the eBook of Desperate Hours until the price hit a more reasonable level, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Grab a copy of the eBook and make sure to share the news far and wide.

APOLLO’S DAUGHTERS now on Kindle

Around this time last year, I started posting about a Kickstarter-funded anthology of short fiction called Apollo’s Daughters. Like its companion volume, Athena’s Daughters, it is a collection of tales ranging from science fiction to fantasy, all featuring female main characters.

The difference between the two anthologies is that the stories in Athena’s Daughters all were written by women, and those in Apollo’s Daughters all were penned by men.

I’m pleased to report that the Kindle version of Apollo’s Daughters is now available on Amazon, and that the paperback version is at the printers and coming this spring.

The new anthology contains my original novelette Hell Rode With Her,” which tells a story that for space reasons I needed to cut from the manuscript of The Midnight Front, my current novel-in-progress and the first volume of my new original trilogy for Tor Books. So if you’d like to get a sneak peek at what I’m cooking up, you’ll want to snag a copy of Apollo’s Daughters on the double.

As if that weren’t enticement enough, Apollo’s Daughters also features stories by such bestselling, award-winning, and acclaimed authors as John Jackson Miller, Aaron Rosenberg, Donald J. Bingle, Joshua B. Palmatier, David R. George III, and Michael Stackpole. It also features the last original work by the late New York Times bestselling author Aaron Allston.

Athena’s Daughters was published last year in both eBook and paperback formats. Apollo’s Daughters was released in December 2014 in generic eBook formats on the website of its publisher, Silence in the Library. Get your eBook copy now, and remember to pick up the print edition this spring!

That’s right — the entire original version of this epic trilogy, which chronicles the Federation’s long-dreaded final showdown with the Borg, can be obtained in eBook format for the low price of just $5.97. Sweet, eh?

This one-day-only promotion will, I’m told, be promoted as a sort of “mini-Gold Box” feature. I don’t really know what that means, but here’s what I do know: This is a great way to lure the Star Trek fans among your friends and family into reading the Star Trek novels. So spread the word far and wide:
