“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. When an earthquake exposes something 2000 feet beneath the Yucatan, cryptanalysts Alyssa Moore and John Savage are called in to investigate this peculiar structure bearing uncanny resemblances to writings in Eden. Inside the remnant below: awakening apex predators from throughout the universe.
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.
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!
It’s Friday again and I’m guessing that many of you will be getting to your To Be Read piles. Who is on your pile? We would love to see a bunch of indie authors for others to keep an eye out for! Even if they aren’t full indie and float on both the traditional published side and the indie side, who are your go-tos?
