Dear Readers,  


As you are reading this email, we're about to sign a publishing deal for Vostok, the sequel to The LOCH and the prequel to MEG; NIGHT STALKERS. While several publishers bid on the novel, I decided to go with a new independent publisher called NEXT CENTURY. Vostok will be their first major release by a published author. My decision was fan-based -- the other major NY publishers would have had to set a release date in Fall 2015. Next Century allowed for a Fall 2014 pub date - in essence, a CREATURE DOUBLE FEATURE with SHARKMAN, both novels set for this October. As for MEG; NIGHT STALKERS, I'm about 25% thru the first draft and it will not disappoint.

With that, here's your update.

MEG MOVIE UPDATE                             
I hate writing vanilla updates, but there are sensitive negotiations playing out among some of Hollywood's best directors, so I gotta do my Sgt. Schultz impression (Hogan's Heroes) and report, "I know nothing... I hear nothing."
Steve Alten presents his debut, a jaw-dropping and terrifying novel about a marine paleontologist who faces off against the ocean's most deadly predator.

VOSTOK - The storyline...
East Antarctica: The coldest, most desolate location on Earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a six thousand square mile liquid lake, over a thousand feet deep that has been left untouched for more than 15 million years. Now, three scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life forms long extinct - and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man.

In this sequel to The LOCH & prequel to the upcoming MEG 5: NIGHTSTALKERS, NY. Times best-selling author Steve Alten offers readers a crossover novel that combines characters from two of his most popular series.
SHARKMAN  - The storyline...
First, my apologies for a mistake that appeared a few weeks ago on Amazon stating the book was for young ages . SHARKMAN is a young adult/adult novel in the same vein as HUNGER GAMES.  As a huge Spiderman fan, I wanted to create a flawed character who is caught in his own self-induced metamorphosis. The hero is Kwan Wilson, a paralyzed teen who injects himself with an experimental shark stem cell elixir to repair his spinal cord, only to find himself progressively evolving into a predator.
