RUBICON Audiobook Now Available (Plus, a Cover Contest)

The RUBICON audiobook is out and available on Amazon and Audible. When it goes live on iTunes, I'll update this post with a link - or you can find it here. UPDATE: It's now available on iTunes as well.

What I said about the novel is worth repeating now for those about to dive into it:

Rubicon is a war novel, but because of its flashy space battles (which do happen). It conveys the personal cost of war, and the question of what is truly required to win one. It tackles the morality of hard choices made and the consequences they wreak. It embraces hope, family, forgiveness and the power that comes from believing nothing is impossible - then acting on that belief. It also brings to culmination the second most important story arc of the series and delivers more than one dramatic revelation.

And now, all this is brought to life by Pyper Down's incredible talent. I believe you are in for a real treat :).

New to audiobooks? You can find all the Aurora Rhapsody novels on Amazon, Audible and iTunes, and feel free to contact me at gs@gsjennsen.com if you have any questions.

Speaking of Rubicon - it has been shortlisted for Cover of the Month at AllAuthor.com. As I post this, it's #2 in the tally - so if you love the cover, I would greatly appreciate a vote for it! You can go here to vote (you do have to sign up/log in, but I've found it to be an excellent, non-spammy site). Thanks in advance!

Rubicon Updates, Requiem Cover & More

I'm thrilled to share an early look at the final cover for REQUIEM (Aurora Resonant Book Three, Aurora Rhapsody #9), which will be available later this year:

[view image]

In case it wasn't clear before now, I did tell you where this series was going from the beginning. From the very first words, in fact.

Words can be tricky things, though. I should know - it's my job to craft, mold, twist and turn them until they tell a meaningful, compelling story in a memorable way. With that in mind - and to hopefully ease yours - I offer you some brief musings on the word requiem’ in a new blog post: A Word About A Word.

Also, the Requiem word meter is up and running in the sidebar on the website, so you can keep track of its progress over the next several months.

Your response to Rubicon has been tremendous. With every book, I think the reviews can't get any more beautiful or humbling; with every book you prove me wrong. And feel free to continue doing so - if you haven't posted a review yet, I would love to see your thoughts on Amazon / Goodreads. If you haven't had a chance to get the book yet, by all means!
