Best Defense is a #1 Bestseller! (#SFWApro)

Legacies_BestDefense_FullI’m pleased as punch to report that my latest novel, Star Trek Legacies, Book 2: Best Defense, has debuted at #1 on Locus Magazine’s list of media-related bestsellers for November 2016!

Backing it up at #3 on the November list is its predecessor in the trilogy, Star Trek Legacies, Book 1: Captain to Captain by Greg Cox. Captain to Captain debuted on the list in October 2016, also at #1.

Here’s hoping that next month the trilogy’s final volume, Star Trek Legacies, Book 3: Purgatory’s Key, by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, will follow in our footsteps.

For those keeping score at home, this marks my work’s twenty-third appearance on the Locus Magazine bestseller list, and my sixth #1 bestseller. Not too shabby.


Long Shot beats the odds! (#SFWApro)

I’m happy to report that my latest scribblings in the Star Trek universe have hit the charts again. Star Trek: Seekers #3, Long Shot landed at #1 on the Locus Magazine list of media-related bestsellers for November 2015.


I’m also pleased to share space on that list with dear friend and fellow Star Trek scribe Kirsten Beyer, whose new Voyager novel Atonement landed at #4. Nice job, Kirsten!

For those keeping score at home, Long Shot marks my twenty-first appearance on the Locus bestseller list since December 2004, and my fifth title to debut at #1.


DISAVOWED is a LOCUS #1 Bestseller (#SFWApro)

Today I happened to take a gander at the monthly bestseller lists over at Locus Magazine, and I was pleased to discover that my novel Section 31: Disavowed earned the top spot on the February 2015 list of Media-Related books.


This is my fourth novel to land at #1 on the Locus Magazine bestseller list, with the previous titles being Star Trek Destiny, Book I: Gods of Night, Star Trek: The Fall, Book III: A Ceremony of Losses, and A Time to Heal. It also marks my twentieth appearance on that list overall since December 2004.

My thanks to everyone who pre-ordered this book or bought it during its first week of publication. Here’s hoping my next Star Trek: Seekers novel Long Shot and my Jack Bauer thriller 24: Rogue do as well later this year.



Another feather in my cap

ST.Ceremony.Losses.Final.CvrI belatedly noticed today that my most recent New York Times bestseller, Star Trek: The Fall, Book III – A Ceremony of Losses, is also a Locus Magazine #1 Bestseller, in the media-related fiction category, on its February 2014 list. That and $2.50 will get me a cup of coffee at the bodega of my choice anywhere in New York City.

In other news, I am happy to report that thanks to the efforts of editor Edward Schlesinger at Simon & Schuster, we have succeeded in reducing the price of the Star Trek Vanguard: Reap the Whirlwind Kindle eBook and the Apple iTunes Store iBook back to its original $7.99. It’s my hope that this price correction on the eBook versions of this impossible-to-find installment in the Vanguard saga will soon propagate to the B&N Nook edition, as well.


The Body Electric keeps kicking ass

bodyelectric_largeLong story short: I am pleased to report that The Body Electric, the New York Times bestselling final book of my Star Trek: The Next Generation trilogy Cold Equations, has landed at #2 on Locus Magazine‘s April list of media-related bestsellers.

Not too shabby.

I’ll also soon have news about a number of upcoming book projects for Star Trek. I’ve signed the contracts, and now I just need to wait for the powers that be at Simon and Schuster to countersign them, and then get the nod from my editor and licensor to reveal some very cool stuff that’s been in the works for a while now….

Stay tuned, Trek fans!


Cold Equations on the Locus list

Just noticed that the Locus Magazine list of bestsellers for February 2013 has just been posted, and that two spots in the “Media-Related Fiction” segment are occupied by volumes from my Star Trek: The Next Generation trilogy Cold Equations.

Book II, Silent Weapons, has snagged the No. 2 spot on this month’s list, while my first New York Times bestseller, Book I: The Persistence of Memory, currently holds the No. 3 spot.

Not too shabby, my friends! Here’s hoping that The Body Electric gets to join them on next month’s list.

Storming Heaven on Locus bestseller list

Courtesy of a heads-up from my friend and fellow author Dayton Ward, I awoke today to the news that my most recent novel, Star Trek Vanguard: Storming Heaven, has cracked this month’s Locus Bestseller list for Media-Related fiction. Kudos to Dayton for snagging the top spot on that list with his recent original series Star Trek novel, That Which Divides!

Not a bad way to start the day. Not as good as a strong cup o’ java, but I was going to have one of those anyway.

Enough crowing. Back to work now on the manuscript for The Body Electric, the final book of this fall’s Cold Equations trilogy.
