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!

“Exciting – engaging – entertaining – excellent! Jones outdoes himself!” – Ashley L. Knight, author of The FINS Trilogy

Nearly sixty-five million years ago an asteroid collided with the Yucatan Peninsula.

Inside the remnant below: awakening apex predators from throughout the universe.

The Menagerie – Book 2 of the Tombs Series

Thousands of you have purchased and enjoyed The Tombs of Eden by Rick Jones. Well, get ready for book 2, The Menagerie:

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE FINAL EXTINCTION EVENT…

THE HISTORY OF HUMAN ORIGINS…

THE RISE OF APEX PREDATORS…

Nearly sixty-five million years ago an asteroid collided with the Yucatan Peninsula in the fifth and final Extinction Event that nearly destroyed all life on Earth. But when a recent earthquake exposes something unusual 2000 feet beneath the Yucatan Peninsula, cryptanalysts Alyssa Moore and John Savage are called in to investigate this peculiar structure that bears uncanny resemblances to writings discovered in Eden.

Working with the Department of Defense, John and Alyssa discover the remains of what is believed to be the cataclysmic bolide to have struck the Earth sixty-five million years ago is actually a broken-off section of an intergalactic ark.

Inside this remnant, they discover a zoological lab containing a menagerie of apex predators gathered from all points of the universe. But as John and Alyssa begin to tie in the writings on the ship to writings they discovered in Eden, a DOD military faction seeking intel unwittingly disrupts matters by awakening sleeping giants.

Finding themselves fighting for self-preservation and for the salvation of Earth, John and Alyssa battle soldiers trying to kill them for the sake of completing a hidden agenda . . .

. . . and against the most vicious predators in the universe.

Keep It Flowin’!

While the pun of being busy-bees over here has been implied once or twice, the workload is fast and furious. With the print versions of both The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Prophecies and The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Return to Anaedor by Kristina Schram being complete, The Cydonia Objective from David Sakmyster getting the final OKs in print (for now find it in e-book), as well as the new additions of book two and three of the Vatican Knights series in Shepherd One and The Iscariot Agenda respectively in e-book (print to come next for the four Rick Jones thrillers including The Tombs of Eden) this has been no small feat.  All of this has been accomplished since August of this year.

We are hoping not to be done for 2012. While the end of the year is upon us, more talks are in the works with some pretty high-profile authors for both print and e-book collaborations. Nothing is inked out yet, but the talks are free-flowing.

Being that Thanksgiving is only a day away I would like to thank all of our authors on board, the others who are considering, and the readers who are partaking of this great independent spirit – sharing their thoughts, reviewing the titles (whether it is only a few lines or many), and passing them off to others to enjoy too. Last, but not least: all you supporters behind the scenes, you know who you are. Cheers to all for a safe and happy holiday!
