Thank You 2013. Hello 2014.

While we would like to apologize for ending 2013 so quietly, the authors and the HIVE would like to thank you all for a very successful year! Three books reached Bestseller status (Vatican Knights, The Pharos Objective, and The Crypts of Eden), and it never would have been possible without the support of our readers.

If you have not yet picked it up, the third book in the Eden Saga, The Thrones of Eden is out now from Rick Jones. Soon to be released, the omnibus version of David Sakmyster’s Morpheus Initiative Series will not only have full length books, The Pharos Objective, The Mongol Objective, and The Cydonia Objective, but also short stories The Smithsonian Objective, and The Shiva Objective (with permission from 7 Realms Publishing). Lastly, we are looking forward to our newest author, Renee Mallett, and Swarmed (details to follow soon)!front-omnibus-72

Whether you are into Ebooks, Audiobooks, and even the archaic (we jest) Print book, we hope you not only continue reading the great authors that are here, but take the 5 minutes after you have finished to write a review on your favorite site. Word of mouth really cannot be beat, and if you like supporting great work they need your help.

So, again, thank you for a very successful 2013 and we welcome 2014 with open arms.

If you have stopped in to read this, we would love to see a note from you. Be sure to leave a comment!

Making A Run For Libraries, And More

Good day all,

In an attempt to get our ebooks into libraries, we have started the process of signing up with OverDrive. While we are unsure what it will take to get all of our books into the hands of you readers at your favorite borrowing establishment, we are doing what we can to make it happen.

OverDrive seems to be the go-to for libraries, but if you would like to borrow our books while we attempt to set things up there, please let your librarians know that we also have available to them two other library services provided by Smashwords.com: Library Direct, and Baker&Taylor Axis 360.

Next, for you Sony fans, we are in process of going direct-to-Sony. While they are still available through Smashwords, this will give us better control to get your the most up-to-date pricing and revisions (if need be).

Lastly, for you audiobook lovers, The Vatican Knights by Rick Jones is nearly complete! We hope to have it for sale through ACX, Amazon, and iTunes in early September. The Crypts of Eden is also in the works, hopefully for October.

Thanks for your time and happy reading/listening!

Looking For .99c Treasures?

If you are looking for a few .99c titles to fill your e-readers, look no further! Through the 27th Vatican Knights (political/action/adventure/military) by Rick Jones has been discounted two dollars. Also equally discounted, The Pharos Objective (supernatural/archaeology/action/adventure) by David Sakmyster through August 13th.

OH, and don’t forget Frozen by Rachelle Bronson! A 10k word short story that may make you second guess going to bed tonight.

Frozen, A Short Story of Horror

Website and FROZEN

We will be soon unleashing a new website! Keep your eyes peeled. It looks very sharp and we cannot wait to unveil it.

Frozen, A Short Story of Horror

“With FROZEN Rachelle Gagne brings 21st century storytelling mojo to a classic-style weird science tale of horror and adventure. Delicious!”
– Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of EXTINCTION MACHINE and V-WARS.

“FROZEN is a chilling story of harrowing suspense and twisting surprises. Bronson is an author to keep an eye on.”
– Kane Gilmour, Bestselling Author of RAGNAROK and THE CRYPT OF DRACULA

Audiobooks To Make A Home At Hive

Here we go, folks, the beginning stages are in motion! We are currently accepting auditions at ACX for two Rick Jones thrillers: The Vatican Knights and The Crypts of Eden. Beyond that, we are in process of gaining the rights of the already produced title The Pharos Objective by David Sakmyster. Keep your eyes open for these gems, as well as many more to come.

If you could listen to any one book from the HIVE on audio, what would it be? Let us know what you would like to see produced next.

Rick Jones on ThrillerCast With David Wood

For those of you who have been keeping watch of Rick Jones and his releases, if you haven’t taken the dive yet into his novels give a listen to his most recent podcast with David Wood on ThrillerCast. He talks about all of his novels out, the works to come, and his most recent release, The Menagerie, book two of the Eden Saga.

When you finish listening, please come back and let us know what you thought. Did you like what you heard? Did it turn you onto trying out one of his books? If so, which one?

 

Happy reading!
