The books have to match on the shelf. Will never understand why publishers can't figure that out.

+Chris van Gorder You will get a lot of different answers. But, for me, a book is a book, be it paper or digital. Also, I see no reason whatsoever for a book to not be offered in all formats.

http://scottsigler.com/alive Sign a new book deal, and the publisher wants a new author photo for the hardcover jacket. How's a photo shoot go down? With tiny dog battles, of course!

The photo was shot at Hollywood Loft studios. Crew: Joan Allen (photographer), David Stevenson (art director), Matt Harbicht (digital technician), Mary Klimek (grooming), Sara Strimpel (intern), Michael Lohr (studio owner).

Not much better than a fun shoot.

THE CHAMPION Episode #31: Free serial scifi audiobook
After a bye week, the Krakens remain undefeated at 7-0, and head into a critical matchup against the To Pirates. For the last few weeks of the season, Quentin has been blackmailed by Jonathan Sandoval, sports reporter and agent of the Creterakian Ministry of Religion. Sandoval has threatened to tell the CMR the real size of the Church of Quentin Barnes, a number so high the CMR would immediately order Quentin’s execution. Quentin is also in trouble with Kate Cheevers, captain of the Kraken’s team ship, The Touchback. Quentin stood by while Whykor the Aware hacked into the ship’s systems, and now Quentin has to face up to Captain Kate and explain why he stayed silent.

When a publisher works with an author to choose a book cover, and they release that cover all over the world, can they just change it? Only a couple of months before publication?

Yes … yes, they can. They just did that to me.

Why would they do such a thing? I asked the same question. My editor at +Penguin Random House got on camera to explain a bit about how Big Publishing works, and why they do the seemingly weird things they do.

And the new cover is in the video, so check it out!

We're also getting a young adult books page going at my site to highlight the Generations Trilogy and the GFL books. http://www.scottsigler.com/young-adult-books

As an OJ, I am completely biased - but I liked the old cover because it was interesting and different. The new cover is still "okay" and will maybe appeal a little better... don't know.
Looking forward to the book, Scott!

(I think it would have been funny if the editor, at the end, said in his best Jesse Pinkman voice, "...but ultimately it's because we said so, bitch!")

That lipstick is awesome. Audible is the bomb — most of my reading is done via listening these days.

I'm going to pick it up even though I'm not happy that you're not on the cover. Hunter should have his own weekly tv series in the spirit of Kolchak.

http://scottsigler.com/2015/04/01/when-fans-die/ "When fans die." Many of us grieve the loss of a creator — what about when its the other way around? A lil' blog post about what that's like for me. 
I love my fans like nobody’s business. I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am, and I continue to do so to this day, but I never forget that it is my readers who give me the life that I have. “Wait a minute ,” you say, “how come you’re not calling us Junkies?” Hold yer pants [...]

The Krakens enter the by week undefeated, 7-0 and in sole possession of first place in the Planet Division. Good thing they have the week off, as Quentin is still recovering from the broken collarbone he suffered last week against the D’Oni Ceolocanths.
