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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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!
Drop by YA Books Central for an exclusive look at the cover for my next book, Against All Silence, a sequel to The Silence of Six! You’ll also get a teaser about what Max, Penny, and their friends are up to in their latest adventure.
Leave a comment on YA Books Central’s post to let us know what you think of the cover, and enter a raffle to win an advance copy of the book when it’s available.
Against All Silence will be published on
May 23 July 19, 2016 by Adaptive Books. The paperback of The Silence of Six will be published on March 29, 2016, with a brand new cover!

I’m once again participating in the YA Scavenger Hunt, this time on #TeamGold, along with seven other teams of 20 authors! The 2015 Spring Hunt will run for 72 hours from noon PST on Thursday, April 2 through noon PST on Sunday, April 5.
The Scavenger Hunt runs like a giant blog hop, introducing you to new YA authors and books along the way. There are tons of prizes, including a grand prize for each team. If you win one of the grand prizes, you will get a book from each author on that team! For more information and to make sure you get hunt updates, sign up for news on the #YASH website.
This online hunt is very much in the spirit of my recent novel, The Silence of Six, and if you play along you’ll find an exclusive deleted/alternate scene from the book. On my own blog, I’ll also be hosting a separate giveaway for audio books of my first two novels, Fair Coin and Quantum Coin. I hope you’ll play along!
Below are all the teams and books up for grabs… (Click the images to embiggen.)
