$1.99 will get you the story in both print and audio formats for the eReader of your choice, or you can read it online or in the Serial Box iPhone app. It should take less than an hour to read, and if you haven’t been keeping up with the series, we do have a “Previously, on ReMade…” recap :)
If you’ve enjoyed my work, I hope you’ll check this out because I’m really proud and excited about it. And if you like what you see, you can get episode 1 for free and subscribe to the whole season at a discounted rate with a season pass–just like your favorite TV shows! That’s the best way to read the whole thing; I have two more episodes coming this season, Episode 8: “End of the Line” on Nov. 2 and Episode 11: “We’re Dead in This Ghost Town” on Nov. 23 (the special Thanksgiving episode, ha ha).
Thanks, and I appreciate comments, reviews, and all the signal boosting you can manage!
Just wanted to let anyone living in Central Pennsylvania know I will be reading and signing my books THE SILENCE OF SIX and AGAINST ALL SILENCE tomorrow, Saturday 9/10 at 2 p.m. at the Lancaster Barnes & Noble! Hope to see some of you there!
I’ll also be making an appearance at the Lansdowne Arts on the Avenue Festival on Sunday, Sept. 11, signing my books at 4 p.m. You likely won’t be able to purchase them at the festival, so please bring your copies from home and I’ll happily deface them with my Sharpie!
One of the most incredible things about being an author is having my book published outside of the United States. A few years ago we sold the rights to my first novel, Fair Coin, to Sharp Point Press, a Taiwanese publisher. I recently saw their stunning cover for the book, which I am thrilled to share with you:
I am such a big fan of this! The book will be coming out in Taiwan in the fall, I think as early as next month. And Sharp Point has something really special in mind: They are selling books with replicas of the quantum coin Ephraim finds, which resemble a U.S. quarter from another universe in which Puerto Rico is the 51st state! Wow. I’ve seen a mock-up of the coin, and I am so excited and impressed. I hope I get one of those, and I’ll share pics of the finished book and coin when I can.
For comparison, below is the U.S. cover of Fair Coin, illustrated by Sam Weber, and because I’m not sure if I’ve shared it here before, the equally amazing Russian cover, by Darya Kuznetsova.
This has been a good book week for me. :)
Which cover do you like best?
Today my fourth novel, Against All Silence, is out from Adaptive Books!
This was perhaps the hardest book I’ve written yet. See, the previous book, The Silence of Six, was published shortly after my first child was born, so this is the first novel I wrote entirely while trying to keep a little person alive and happy. I was a stay-at-home dad while writing the early drafts of this book, which as you can imagine was quite challenging. Then I had a full-time job, and I was still the primary caregiver for my kid (and a new puppy), which has been even more demanding.
Beyond all that, I also wanted to make this book even better than the first one, both familiar to fans and different enough to make it fresh. Did I succeed? You tell me…
There has been a little confusion about when Against All Silence is actually coming out, due to a new partnership between my publisher and Barnes & Noble. Basically, you can buy the book exclusively at Barnes & Noble stores everywhere and online at BN.com beginning today, but if you want to pick it up elsewhere, such as at Amazon.com or your local indie bookseller, you will have to wait until Feb. 17, 2017. You can read more about this unique deal at the NY Times. Similarly, B&N currently is the only place to get the paperback edition of The Silence of Six with its creepy new cover.
Some other goodies: You can still read two short stories in the SOS series for free at Wattpad right now! The first, “SOS”, is a prequel to The Silence of Six, and the second is a novella titled “DoubleThink” that bridges that book and Against All Silence.
Regardless of how and where you get Against All Silence, thank you for reading!
