My Star Trek eBooks on Sale in May

Good news, everyone! All eBook versions of two of my many Star Trek novels are on sale to U.S. readers for just $0.99 now through the end of May 2020.

The first title on sale is my Deep Space Nine action-thriller Warpath. From the back cover:

They were created to be killing machines. Highly intelligent, resourceful, and deceptively complex, the Jem’Hadar are a species engineered for war and programmed at the genetic level for one purpose: to fight until death as soldiers of the sprawling stellar empire known as the Dominion. No Jem’Hadar has ever lived thirty years, and not even their masters, the shape-shifting Founders, know what such a creature is capable of becoming were it to be freed of its servitude.

One Founder, however, has dared to wonder.

Appointed by Odo himself to learn peaceful coexistence aboard Deep Space 9™, Taran’atar, an Honored Elder among the Jem’Hadar, had for months been a staunch, if conflicted, ally to the crew of the station, ever struggling to understand the mission on which he was sent … until something went horrifically wrong.

Consumed by self-doubt and an ever-growing rage, Taran’atar has lashed out against those he was sworn to aid. While Captain Kira Nerys and Lieutenant Ro Laren both lie near death aboard DS9, their assailant has taken a hostage and fled into Cardassian space, pursued by Commander Elias Vaughn on the U.S.S. Defiant. But as the hunt unfolds, Taran’atar’s true objective becomes increasingly less certain, as the rogue Jem’Hadar leads the Defiant to a discovery even more shocking than his crime.

The second title on sale is Harbinger, the first volume in the eight-book (plus two eBook novellas) Star Trek Vanguard saga, which I created with editor Marco Palmieri and alternated writing duties with the team of Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. From the back cover:

Returning from its historic first voyage to the edge of the galaxy, the damaged U.S.S. Enterprise journeys through the Taurus Reach, a vast and little-known region of space in which a new starbase has been unexpectedly established. Puzzled by the Federation’s interest in an area so far from its borders and so near the xenophobic Tholian Assembly, Captain James T. Kirk orders the Enterprise to put in for repairs at the new space station: Starbase 47, also known as Vanguard.

As Kirk ponders the mystery of the enormous base, he begins to suspect that there is much more to Vanguard than meets the eye. It’s a suspicion shared by the Tholians, the Orions, and the Klingon Empire, each of whom believes that there are less than benign motives behind the Federation’s sudden and unexplained desire to explore and colonize the Taurus Reach.

But when a calamity deep within the Reach threatens to compromise Starfleet’s continued presence in the region, Kirk, Spock, and several key specialists from the Enterprise must assist Vanguard’s crew in investigating the cause of the disaster and containing the damage. In the process, they learn the true purpose behind the creation of Vanguard, and what the outcome of its mission may mean for life throughout that part of the galaxy.

This is a great deal on two of my seminal early works. Grab ’em while the grabbing’s good!


Don’t miss this Kickstarter bargain

Over the past month, I’ve told you in this space (and others) about the Kickstarter for Athena’s Daughters, an anthology of short stories by female authors writing about heroic female main characters. It’s been so successful that it’s going to have a companion anthology, Apollo’s Daughters, in which male authors will write tales of strong women. One of those stories will be my own upcoming short, “And Hell Rode With Her,” which will be a tease for my upcoming original novel project.

If you haven’t chipped in yet, you should. Because time is running out — the Kickstarter ends Wednesday, January 8 — and because this is one of the best deals around.

Why should you chip in if it’s already funded? I’ll tell you why.

For just $5, you’ll get more great reading material than you’ll know what to do with. Seriously, multiple bonus stories and novels, plus Athena’s Daughters, all in eBook format. That’s a tremendous value for just $5. Just $5 more gets you the Apollo’s Daughters eBook.

For an additional contribution of only $20, you can get a trade paperback copy of one of the new anthologies IN ADDITION to all the stuff listed above. That’s a pretty sweet deal. For just $45, you can get BOTH anthologies in trade paperback and all the eBook goodies.

Last but not least: this might be the ONLY way you’ll be able to get these new anthologies. Once this Kickstarter ends, there’s no guarantee these kick-ass new works of original science fiction and fantasy will be sold again. Don’t miss your chance! Chip in while there’s still time!
