>As you’ve probably noticed over the last month and a half, Saturdays have become promotion days for MGC. Sometimes it will be self-promotion. Others will be guest blogs by authors who have new books coming out. Sometimes, we’ll even throw in an open floor. Today, I’m going to step in and do a bit of promotion for the MGCers who have titles coming out from Naked Reader Press this month and nexzt.
In a land with a weak king, in a time when murder was often disregarded, four men made sure justice was served.
First up — and I’m really excited about this — is Death of a Musketeer by Sarah D’Almeida.
This is the first in the series and it has never before been released in digital format. Now, I see some of you scratching your heads and wondering who this D’Almeida chick is. Well, if you take a look at her Amazon author page, you’ll see that she looks pretty familiar. Actually, it’s no secret that Sarah D’Almeida is one of several pseudonyms our own Sarah A. Hoyt writes under.
Computer hackers are nothing compared to Legion. Its source is unknown and it continues to baffle programmers and defeat firewalls and antivirus programs. Nothing seems able to stop it. Could Legion possibly be intelligent? Or is it something else, something totally unexpected?
Up next is a wonderful short story written by Dave Freer and Kate Paulk. Legion: The Enemy Within came out earlier this month and, as with all NRP titles, it is DRM-free and available not only at the NRP site but also from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
A boy’s search for the truth sends him on a journey to find his grandfather’s downed plane. Suddenly trapped in an alternate South Africa, faced with pirates and worse, he refuses to give up. His quest to clear his grandfather’s name turns into a desperate race against time. It’s a race he can’t afford to lose.
Our next title is Dave Freer’s middle school/early YA novella, Without a Trace. It is currently available for early purchase as an uncorrected e-arc (advanced readers copy). The edited version will be available for purchase the second half of March. If you like a rip-roaring adventure, or know someone who does, Without a Trace is for you.
The day she died Mackenzie Santos’s life and her perception of the world changed forever. Everyone else thought her return to the living was a miracle. She knew better. How else could she explain away the dreams she knew were symptoms she was losing her mind? And if that weren’t enough, she’s now in charge of the investigation into the most brutal murder she can remember in her time with the Dallas Police Department.
Nocturnal Origins is by, well, me. Yes, me. The blogger currently hiding under the bed because self-promotion isn’t something I’m comfortable with. It will be available from NRP the first half of March.
And don’t forget that Kate Paulk’s unique take on the Dracula legend, Impaler, comes out in March as well. For more information on Impaler, as well as a snippet or two, check out Kate’s website. You can also find more information on Impaler at The Naked Truth and here on MGC. One word of warning, do not expect any sparkling vampires or emo werewolves in this novel. As far as Kate’s concerned, the only time vampires should sparkle are when they’ve stepped into the sunlight and are bursting into flame.
With the exception of Legion: The Enemy Within, each of these titles will also be breaking new ground for NRP. Each of these titles will also be released in print as well as in digital formats.
(Full disclosure here — for those who don’t know, I’m the senior executive editor for Naked Reader Press.)
