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!

Star Trek Destiny to Be a Kindle Daily Deal!

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:

Ring in The New Year with a New Destiny

Earlier this year, the powers that be at Simon & Schuster released a new-and-improved omnibus edition of my Star Trek Destiny trilogy. This new edition, in addition to having all three volumes between one set of covers, included a number of small edits and revisions I had made to the original text. While there weren’t any major changes to the story or dialogue, I made many tweaks that I felt improved the flow of the prose.

A number of readers who prefer eBooks have asked me in recent months why there was no electronic version of the book released at the same time as the print omnibus. I don’t have an answer for that question, but I do have good news for those who asked it:

The revised, omnibus edition of Star Trek Destiny will be available for multiple e-reader platforms starting next month, at the very reasonable price of just $11.99 — half what one would have paid for the original paperback edition of the trilogy, and significantly lower than the cover price of the trade paperback omnibus.

Adding to my delight at this news is the fact that this eBook will be the first of my titles to include my new bragging-rights cover credit, “New York Times Bestselling Author.”

So if you’ve been waiting for the deal of a lifetime to pick up the Destiny trilogy, here it is. Enjoy!
