To My Readers:

For the last twenty years and sixteen thrillers, I've had the privilege and honor of being in direct contact with my readers. By personally answering every email at I've gotten to know many of you, and through monthly newsletters I've offered character contests where my fans can become part of my next book. As the MEG movie approaches, I realize that millions of new fans will be introduced to the MEG series and my other works, and that I may not have the time to answer every email. Before that happens, I want to ensure that my superfans (MEGheads) always have direct access to reach me and that their years of loyalty are duly rewarded. And so, I've decided to offer something special - a Steve Alten V.I.P. access pass. Membership is free (simply sign-up), but future access will be limited prior to the movie release on August 10, 2018.

Steve Alten V.I.P.'s receive:

  • A private email address to reach Steve Alten (in case I get swamped when the movie hits theaters).
  • Special "behind-the scenes" access to the MEG Movie & future Steve Alten projects.
  • Future Character Contests will only be open to V.I.P.s.
  • FABs. 

Fan Appreciation Books

First edition hardbacks are considered collector editions. A signed first edition from a NY Times best-selling author is valuable; a personalized and signed first edition happens only when the author participates in a special book signing event. Because of Parkinson's, my appearances at bookstores are becoming even more rare.

However, prior to each new release, I will set aside a limited number of first edition hardbacks and spend 2 days in my publisher's warehouse signing these FABs. V.I.P. members will be alerted by email when orders will be accepted and instructions on how they can get their signed editions personalized.


GOLD CLUB: A SIGNED & PERSONALIZED collector's FIRST EDITION hardback, sealed in a PROTECTIVE PLASTIC COVER with a stamped FAB Gold Seal. RETAIL PRICE plus $9.99 & S&H.

Books will be shipped ON or BEFORE the official publication date. Only GOLD FABs will be personalized.

Order dates: May 1 - May 20, 2017.
500 Limited Editions Available
