News for April 27th, 2009

Sue Dent has republished her first book, Never Ceese. The hardback was discontinued by Journey Stone, and the stock sold off to liquidators, so even the few copies left for sale didn't make her any royalties at all. So she redid the cover and re-released it (no changes to inside text) as a self-published paperback. You can buy it direct from Sue on neverceese.com or several online retailers, including Parables, B&N, and Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/Never-Ceese-Sue-E-Dent/dp/0976994704/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_1 Amazon is showing "out of stock" but it's printed on demand with Lightning Source, so orders should get fulfilled quickly. If you've always wanted to read Never Ceese and Forever Richard together, now you can.

Derek Gilbert says: My new novel, The God Conspiracy, has just been released by PID Publishing. It's a sci fi/conspiracy thriller that fits into the "Laodicea Chronicles" series authored by my wife, Sharon K. Gilbert. (She graciously allowed me to borrow a couple of her characters.)

Synopsis: The deadliest terror attacks in American history are triggered by a mysterious e-mail from "God", and the government blames a fanatical group of apocalyptic Christians. An FBI agent reluctantly teams with a reclusive Internet radio host to expose the plot -- and discovers that he's not wrestling against flesh and blood.
