For those fans who want the new book
in print form, I'm working on that and expect to have it ready
to go within a couple of weeks. It will be available on
B&N, Books-a-Million and other bookstores around the world.
I haven't yet decided whether I'll release it to Amazon or not.
Their wholly-owned print company, CreateSpace, refused to print
my Vengeance Is Personal book because I wanted the cover to
show my author name as Tom DePrima. They said that if it didn't
show me as Thomas DePrima, they wouldn't print it. I use Tom
DePrima to distinguish my thriller novels from my Sci-fi books,
and I use T.J. DePrima to indicate the book is a
Paranormal/Occult book. In the past I've had complaints from
fans who purchased a paranormal book thinking it was a Sci-Fi
book, so I do everything I can to make them appear different. I
knew that Amazon wouldn't print my When the Spirit Calls book
because it has T.J. DePrima on the cover, so I didn't even try.
Fortunately, Amazon isn't the only book printer in the U.S.,
just as they aren't the only eBook seller in the U.S.
About the New Book
Offered an opportunity to command a
new covert mission into Clidepp space that will resolve an
outstanding issue created during her last mission,
Lieutenant(jg) Sydnee Marcola accepts, then makes preparations
to captain the CPS-14 Justice once again.
During the mission briefing the
following day, she learns that the parameters of the assignment
have expanded tremendously since her acceptance. Instead of the
voyage being a simple delivery, the Justice might be required
to remain in Clidepp space for as long as two years. The crew
size for the newly revised mission has been expanded from the
original nine Space Command officers and enlisted, plus the
previous Marine Special Ops team and Marine fire teams from the
Denver, to twenty-four Space Command officers and enlisted, the
same Marine Special Ops team, a platoon of Marines from the
Denver, and a full Wing of Marine fighter jocks and support
personnel. The mission had just gone from a
penetration/delivery/exit operation to a major clandestine
incursion into the space of an unfriendly neighboring nation
currently embroiled in a deadly civil war.
The eBook formats available on my website
include: Mobi (Kindle), PDF, and ePub. The eBook formats
available from other websites are, as always, limited to ePub only. Naturally,
there is a print version of the book for customers who prefer that form.
