Long story short: Some very silly people with a number of rabid followers have recently called for a boycott of Tor Books starting Friday, June 19, 2015. Why? Because they manufactured a controversy over a Tor employee’s personal comments on her personal Facebook page and then failed to get her fired for it. I won’t dignify their stupid witch hunt by naming names, because anyone who needs or wants to know what I’m talking about already knows.
As a relatively new Tor author, I am asking everyone who sees this to buy or pre-order on Friday, June 19, a book published by Tor, Forge, or their parent company Macmillan.
If you’d like a suggestion, let me recommend you pre-order my new Jack Bauer action-thriller, 24: ROGUE, scheduled for publication on September 8, 2015.
Here’s the cover art and back-cover copy:
The time is 8:00 PM.
Jack Bauer is a man without a country, a fugitive hunted by the most powerful nations in the world. He lives on the run, survives by his wits, and finds purpose in his exile by waging a one-man war against those who profit from the death and suffering of others.
On a self-imposed crusade to destroy the criminal empire of international arms dealer Karl Rask, Jack has infiltrated the crew of one of Rask’s freighters. But his mission is disrupted when the ship is hijacked by a band of suspiciously well-informed pirates off the coast of Somalia.
As Jack fights to free the ship, he discovers a deadly secret hidden in its hold: a prize the pirates were hired to steal, and that could be used to ignite a world war — unless Jack captures it first.
