Dear Readers:

This is THE week - the week my twelfth and BEST novel in years debuts in stores. THE OMEGA PROJECT took me almost 2 years to write and is definitely my most creative novel to date.  Imagine CASTAWAY, only set 12 million years in the future. . .or is it? You won't know the truth until the last page. 


This month is also my birthday, so if you'd like to help me celebrate number 54 (my God, this will be the oldest I've ever been) please purchase this middle-aged author's book, THE OMEGA PROJECT and post a review after you read it on Amazon.

The amazing James Gelet has created a must-see book trailer, which we've linked below. Please post it to your Facebook and other social media accts.  


I am indebted, grateful, and I guarantee THE OMEGA PROJECT will keep you turning pages!


With love,

--Steve Alten

MEGALODON SPECIAL OPENS SHARK WEEK SUNDAY AUG. 4th                             
Sun., Aug. 4 at 9 p.m. ET

In the  two-hour special MEGALODON: THE MONSTER SHARK LIVES Discovery brings "Shark Week" viewers on a search for a massive killer Great White shark responsible for a rash of fatalities off the coast of South Africa. One controversial scientist believes that the shark responsible could be Megalodon. WILL IT BE? Put it this way - they called me to be a guest on the post show analysis but couldn't afford the airline ticket to Los Angeles, so my guess is no. But I'll still be watching.

Joke of the Month - Keeping Kosher                             
A rabbi was walking down the street, when he noticed one of his congregants, Moishe Pipick, entering a Chinese restaurant on the other side of the street. The rabbi crossed the street to peer through the window of the restaurant and see what his congregant was doing in the non-kosher restaurant. Moishe ordered some spare ribs and some fried shrimp. The rabbi continued to watch as the waiter brought the spare ribs and shrimp. Moishe was eagerly devouring it with a hearty appetite when the shocked rabbi, no longer able to contain himself, burst into the restaurant to confront him. "Moishe! Stop!" the rabbi shouted. "How could you do this? How could you eat this food? It's ribs and shrimp. It's traif!" "Hold on, just a second" said the congregant. "Rabbi, did you see me walk into this restaurant?" "Yes, I did," replied the rabbi. "Did you see me sit down at this table?" "Yes, I did," the rabbi again testified. "Did you see me order my meal?" "I most certainly did," the rabbi attested. "Did you see the waiter bring this food to my table?" Moishe asked. "Yes, I did," the rabbi again affirmed. "Did you actually see me eating the ribs and the shrimp?" asked Moishe."Yes, I did. I watched you the entire time!" exclaimed the rabbi. "Well, then," Moishe said calmly, "What's the problem? It was all done under rabbinical supervision."
