Ready To Read: Angel of Death
At long last, I’m very happy to announce that Angel of Death is available to read and enjoy. And unlike previous releases, I’m “going wide” with this one. It is already available at Amazon, Kobo, and Smashwords, and it will soon go live at Barnes and Noble, Apple’s iBooks, and more.
Angel of Death continues the story of Victor Storm after the events in Winter Kills. Here, Victor is trying to get his life back. He’s working on getting help for his PTSD, helping to settle his parents’ estate, finding a new home for himself, and taking classes to figure things out. Unfortunately, he’s also looking for trouble. And finding it.
If you liked Winter Kills, you’ll like Angel of Death.
Discounted This Week
To celebrate the release of Angel of Death for my best fans, I’m pricing it at $2.99 for the rest of this week. I’m embracing Dean Wesley Smith’s pricing philosophy, and the regular price for this book will be $5.99, and it’s certainly worth every penny of that, but get it now at half price!
Q and A
Q. Do I have to read Winter Kills before I read Angel of Death?
A. No, but why not read both? Angel of Death makes reference to things that will be small spoilers if you haven’t read Winter Kills, but either can stand alone just fine. If you are going to read both, buy them now before the prices go up, and read Winter Kills first, because it’s shorter.
Q. Why is this book set in St. Louis?
A. When I traveled across the country by bus (several times), I loved the old St. Louis Greyhound station. Later, when I wanted my vigilante hero to be a reasonable bus ride from anywhere, St. Louis seemed like the perfect place where he would be.
Q. How long will it be until the next Victor Storm story comes out?
A. I’m not sure, but I think I already know what happens in it, so as soon as I run out of more important projects (5-7 from now), it may be next. That sounds like a long time, but it is supposed to be later this year. It should be no longer than next year.
Q. Do you know that no philosophy class would ever be like the one in the book?
A. The philosophy class in the book is not far from classes I have taken. The fundamental problem with the study of ethics sounds like something you’d hear at a bar—and you might—but it’s a well-understood problem nonetheless.
Q. What do I do if I like it?
A. Well, sending me a note saying so would be nice. I don’t get enough of those. More importantly, though, you should write a nice review (it doesn’t have to be long) and post it where you bought it to help like-minded readers find it. Then, tell all your friends.
