Vanguard: Storming Heaven – cover copy

It’s now up on the Simon & Schuster website, as well as on my site and Amazon.com, so now I’m posting it here for those of you who don’t do the whole Facebook/Twitter thing — the back-cover copy of my upcoming novel Star Trek Vanguard: Storming Heaven.

“I WAS THERE UNTIL THE END, MATE.
THE BITTER, BLOODY END.”


Vanguard is under siege.
Surrounded by enemies, Admiral Nogura sends the scout ship Sagittarius to find an ancient weapon that might be the Federation’s only hope of stopping the alien threat known as the Shedai.

Qo’noS is wracked by scandal. Councillor Gorkon fights to expose a Romulan plot to corrupt members of the Klingon High Council, only to learn the hard way that crusaders have few allies and even fewer friends.

Tholia teeters on the brink of madness. To prevent Starfleet from wielding the Shedai’s power as its own, the Tholians deploy an armada with one mission: Kill the Shedai — by destroying Vanguard.

THE EPIC SAGA’S
EXPLOSIVE FINALE

Publication is scheduled for Tuesday, March 27, 2012. Be on the lookout for more Vanguardian goodness here on my blog, as I build up to the finale by offering glimpses into the series’ development, some of the “paths not taken”, and the various creative inspirations that helped me bring the series to life.

Vanguardian Discourse

This post’s title is a fancy way of saying you can listen to a recording of a panel discussion about Star Trek Vanguard.

The panel to which I refer took place this past July at the Shore Leave convention outside Baltimore, Md. The discussion, followed by an audience Q&A, featured me, Marco Palmieri, Dayton Ward, and Kevin Dilmore.

It was recorded by soldier and major Star Trek fan Nick Minecci, who posted it on the website for The G & T Show, which he co-hosts each Sunday morning with the velvet-voiced Terilynn Shull.

The recording runs a bit under an hour. If you’re a fan of Star Trek Vanguard, give it a listen!

And in case you’re one of those who needs a visual of who’s speaking in order to appreciate it, you can feast your eyes on this little Photoshop gem:

Enjoy!

New Book Cover Day!

I’ve just finished a big update over on my official website, adding cover images for three of my upcoming books. Here they are, in publication order:

 

NO TURNING BACK

(November 1, 2011)


STAR TREK MIRROR UNIVERSE: RISE LIKE LIONS

(November 29, 2011)

 

STAR TREK VANGUARD: STORMING HEAVEN

(March 27, 2012)

Is that sweet or what? CGI master Doug Drexler has outdone himself again, and I’m in his debt. Want to be even more impressed? I’m told this might not even be the final cover. That’s right; the final cover might be even more awesome than this.

Boo-yah. That’s why Doug Drexler is The Man.

It’s Away

Finally, the manuscript for my next full-length Star Trek novel, the Mirror Universe adventure Rise Like Lions, is finished, polished, and turned in to the fine folks at Simon & Schuster.

Tomorrow I hope to spend some quality time with my wife, and after the weekend, I will begin two things: working on the outline for my next Star Trek Vanguard novel, Storming Heaven; and an exercise regimen—I just joined a fitness club for the first time in over a decade.

And now… to bed.
