To my readers:


A & M Publishing is moving to a smaller (less costly) warehouse soon. To do that, we need to reduce our inventory by 60%... so almost everything must go... and that includes 400-500 MEG tooth shards! These real fragments of MEG teeth are 2 million to 30 million years old and were once lodged in the jaws of a real Megalodon!

The first 400-500 orders will include a FREE Meg shard!

SALE BEGINS ON SUNDAY MARCH 31ST AT MIDNIGHT EST. (I didn't want to start on April 1st to avoid talk of an April Fool's joke).

Adopt-an-Author signed posters: Were $24.99, reduced to $19.99

*Shards included in the first 400-500 orders (except on pre-sale orders of The LOCH: Heaven's Lake). Largest shards will be given away first.

Prices will change on March  31 at midnight so  please wait to order until after midnight if you want your order to include the free Meg tooth frags.

With heartfelt thanks,

--Steve Alten
The LOCH: Heaven's Lake is already one of my personal favs:
I really love the story and characters... and have you seen Erik Hollander's amazing cover art? I expect to finish the novel in August, with finished hardbacks sent out in October. Remember, the novel Will NOT be sold in stores or on Amazon, only in the e-store at .
More Alten "Faction" and this one is unbelievable

In part 3 of my Mayan Trilogy, (Domain, Resurrection & Phobos: Mayan Fear) this scene is caused  by a stranglet  (a mini black hole) created by the CERN atom smasher. Look at the PHOBOS cover, then this scene: 

Here's the Phobos book trailer:

The Merchandise store is open!
For years my readers have asked for tee-shirts, mousepads, etc... here ya go! I realize prices are not the bargains we offer in-house on the STORE link (I only make 20%, most of which is for the Adopt-an-Author teen reading program) but the stuff is good quality. Go to the MERCHANDISE link at and take a look.
Why The LOCH and not MEG? All MEG merchandise rights now belong to Warner Bros. Same thing will happen with The LOCH movie once everything is signed. Until then, we hope to sell some fun stuff to help raise money for the Adopt-an-Author program.

Joke of the month: 
An older woman is pulled over speeding.
Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Traffic Cop: Yes ma'am, I'm afraid you were speeding. Can I see your license please?
Older Woman: Well, I would give it to you but I don't have one. I lost it 4 years ago for drunk driving.
Traffic Cop: I see...Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Older Woman: I can't do that. You see, I stole this car.
Traffic Cop: Stole it?
Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner. His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.
The traffic cop looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car while calling for back up. Within minutes a second police car arrives. A senior officer slowly approaches the older woman, his gun drawn.
Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle.
Older Woman: Is there a problem sir?
Officer 2: My colleague here tells me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Older Woman: Murdered the owner? Are you serious?!
Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please. The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.
Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am?
Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The traffic cop is quite stunned.
Officer 2: My colleague claims that you do not have a driving license. The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer. The officer examines the license quizzically.
Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, but I am puzzled, as I was told by my officer here that you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner!
Older Woman: Bet the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too.
