This is an exciting week! Hi-C Ecto Cooler is back!
Even more exciting than that — and I am very excited about the too-sweet taste of childhood nostalgia — this week The Silence of Six is out in paperback, exclusively at Barnes & Noble! This is the first paperback edition of a novel I wrote; Fair Coin and Quantum Coin are still only available in hardcover so far. So if you’ve been waiting to read The Silence of Six, haven’t picked up a copy to own yet, or simply want to collect them all, please stop by your local Barnes & Noble store or order it online at bn.com for only $4.99. (That’s cheaper than the eBook!)
To celebrate, I’m giving away a signed, advance copy of the sequel, Against All Silence (publishing in August) and a signed, limited edition paperback of the prequel story, “SOS”, which is not available anywhere else.
All you have to do is post a picture of the paperback of The Silence of Six at a Barnes & Noble; or a picture of your receipt (including online orders); or a picture of you with the paperback on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with a link to this post. Be sure to use the hashtag #SilenceOfSix and tag me (Twitter: @ecmyers, Instagram: @e.c.myers). If you want to be sure I don’t miss your entry, you can also e-mail the link to email@example.com.
This giveaway will only run through Tuesday, June 7, 11:59 p.m. ET. On Wednesday, June 8, I will put all the entries into a spreadsheet, number them, and then use a randomizer to randomly select one winner.
If you’re at Book Expo America (BEA) in Chicago this week, come to my autographing on Friday to get a signed copy of my new book, Against All Silence, courtesy of my overlords, Adaptive Books!
Friday, May 13 — 2:30–3 p.m.

You will be among the first people in the world to read this book, which will be published in August! Seriously, this is so brand new, I don’t even have copies of it yet! I really really really really hope you like it. I also hear there will be some special, limited-edition giveaways at this event, but I’m not sure if I should say more than that. ;)
If you aren’t at BEA or you miss me there, I will also be crashing the Mass Autographing Session at the SFWA Nebula Weekend at Palmer House on Friday the 13th, from 8 p.m. on. I’ll be happy to sign anything (anything!) if you corner me, but you’ll have to bring your own books!
Good news, everyone! Amazon.com has selected The Silence of Six as a Kindle Deal for January, which means you can purchase the eBook all month for only $1.99!
Yes, you can have my thoughts for only 199 pennies, less than 6.42 pennies a day!
There’s no better time to read The Silence of Six if it’s on your list, what with the sequel coming out soon — currently scheduled for July 19, 2016 from Adaptive. (These reviewers really liked it.) And if you’re like me and don’t love cliffhangers, don’t worry, the first book stands alone, with Max off on a new adventure in Against All Silence. (You can still enter a contest at YABC to win an early copy, until 1/9.)
And if it isn’t too greedy, I have one more small request: If you read The Silence of Six, especially if you grab it now on the cheap, please consider rating and reviewing it on Amazon? I’d like them to see that highlighting my book was a good decision!
Will you be at Book Expo America in NYC next week? On Wednesday, May 27, come by Table 11 from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. and I will sign copies of The Silence of Six!

This is my first time at BEA, and I’m really excited!
Exciting publishing news I can share now that it’s official: I’m writing a sequel to The Silence of Six, titled Against All Silence, for Adaptive Books! I’m very excited to tell the next part of Max’s story and work with everyone at Adaptive again. These books are technically standalone (because I have feels about cliffhanger endings), but you’ll see some recurring characters (yes, her, and also, her), so feel free to read the first book or its free prequel if you like.
Here’s the announcement from Publishers Marketplace:
