Novels

the truth is out there

Hurray! My new novel, The Silence of Six, is out today! It’s now available in several eBook flavors and in hardcover.

This is my third published book, and I’m really proud of it — I probably worked harder on this than any of my previous novels, including the unpublished ones (which I’m still working on). I pushed myself outside of my comfort zone and grew a lot in writing it; throughout the process I felt a strong responsibility to truth and realism, particularly in portraying hacking and the difficult choices faced by those who use their skills to effect change and uphold justice. Getting the details right became very important to me. I hope I pulled it off, but if I erred, I did so with the utmost respect and the best of intentions.

Thank you once again to everyone at my publisher, Adaptive Books, for trusting me with this story and helping to make it the best it could be. As always, I also owe so much to the JABberwocky Literary Agency, my writing group Altered Fluid, my critique partners, tech consultants, and friends and family. And finally, thanks to all those who have been helping to spread the word by recommending it, reviewing it, Tweeting, posting, and more. (Please keep it up!)

This book is yours now. I hope you enjoy it, and perhaps even look at the world around us a little differently after reading it.

If you have any questions about The Silence of Six, my writing process, my favorite books or shows or games, or whatever, drop by my Reddit Books AMA today at noon. Ask me anything, and I will answer!

Stay frosty,
Eugene

free short story prequel to the silence of six

SOS_CoverI have a new short story available for free on Wattpad: “SOS”, a prequel to my upcoming YA thriller, The Silence of Six! I hope that people who are curious about the novel will take a look at it, and if you’ve already read The Silence of Six, some cool stuff is there for you too :)

The Wattpad story also includes the entire first chapter of The Silence of Six, to introduce you to the mystery that sets the book’s events in motion. If you check it out, I hope you’ll leave some comments on the site and spread the word. I’m looking forward to hearing what readers think about the SOS books!

Also, some people have been asking me about when the hardcover will be available for pre-order. After a short delay, it’s finally up on Amazon!

And remember: You can still enter this giveaway for the book on Goodreads until November 15!
