Starstrikers Update

The Smashwords version of Starstrikers SE (Second Edition) is uploaded and ready to order.  We’re working hard on getting the new cover finished so that I can upload that and then update the Kindle version at the same time.  I’m real excited to bring out this definitive version of the novel.  It’s been professionally edited and painstakingly updated and is now ready to be the new canon for the series. If you have not read it yet, you won’t want to miss this version.  Trust me, it’s worth talking about.  So get it, read it and spread the word.

The free versions that have been available on this web site will be scaled back to a text only file.  If you want the book in a particular format, please buy it on Smashwords.  The new edition will be uploaded to Scribd, after the book PDF comes out in another month.  It will be available on Scribd for free. I will be blogging the entire novel in April, just like I did for Null_Pointer.

This is a sneak peek at the new cover.  There are many changes coming, but the layout is pretty much finalized.  We’re going to make the title pop more and tone down the shiny coin and make it look more used and worn. It looks nothing short of fantastic and I can’t wait to share it when it’s finished.  Oh, in case you are wondering – the artwork is pure Byron McConnell genius.  Need a great cover for your novel – he’s available!

Ebooks Ready

Just an update to let you know that both of my novels, Starstrikers and Null_Pointer are now available in just about any ebook format.  Starstrikers is only .99 cents and Null_Pointer is just $1.99 at both the Kindle Store and Smashwords.  At some point in the next few months, both books will also be available on Barnes and Noble’s Nook and Sony’s Ebook Store.

“Null Pointer is an excellent blending of computer technology, programmer knowledge and the traditional mystery.” – Angela Abderhalden, author of Questionable Ethics

“McConnell’s novel is filled with lots of technical details that geeks will love, but he makes nearly all of it clear to technophobes.” – Kathy McIntosh, Well Placed Words
