Simon and Schuster have released the cover

MY COUPLE!!! I can't wait to read it. Great cover.

What's the release date for the new book (more specifically ebook for me). I assume sometime this month?

EDIT: Nevermind I got it. The 28th. Can't wait!!!

The "official" release date is the 28th (and on-line sellers won't release it until then (more or less), but the paper book might show up in real bookstores a few days before that; I'll be looking starting 2 weeks from tomorrow lol.

I'm looking forward to reading this story and finding more about Katherine Janeway returning to Earth and the consequences she has to face.

I don't know for sure but there might be an exerpt for this book in about a week (hopefully!); that's what usually happens w/ Trek books, there's a little more info about a week or so before the book comes out.

I don't think they've been releasing excerpts early as often as the used to, so I would count on there being one before the 28th.

And they still haven't fixed the cover.

I'm so very excited for this book, and after the excerpt even more so! I can't wait to see where the characters get to by the end, and the journey they'll take to get there, which sounds like it's going to be a difficult one.

Only 10 days to go!

LOL I'll be at the bookstore Friday to hopefully get the paperback a little early, as per the usual Trek books appearing a little ahead on bookshelves happening (and yes hopefully the cover will be the "right" (and original) one, ie w/ proper ranks /uniforms, like in your avatar, Madzilla, lol).

Re: Star Trek Voyager: Protectors by Kirsten Beyer, Jan 2014!

Hopefully, yes! I have it pre-ordered for both formats but I'm pretty sure the paperback won't get here first unless they send it out super early, as the paperback release date isn't until the 30th here. Though I know that occasionally happens with Treklit; my copy of Full Circle came really early.

I'm going to have to be careful about spoilers, then! I was pretty spoiled for The Eternal Tide but would prefer not to be this time.

(Heh, if I'm being really nitpicky then technically this avatar isn't totally accurate either - she's supposed to be a three-star Admiral, not five. But at least she isn't still a Captain. )

Yes, um, it would make sense to have the picture on the cover reflect the ranks the characters now have in the books lol (am not expecting any demotions ha) and the current uniforms too! PS Excerpt shows book doesn't waste any time heh, well not surprising from the posted summaries.

OH lol cover pic and link to excerpt was posted on Kate M's page on FB, unfortunately w/ the "old uniforms" since that's what's current on SS site, and Amazon (ack), but it's great that her webmaster has picked up on Protectors - people are commenting there on how they want to buy the book .

FYI, a couple people who live in Germany in the BBKJ group on FB have said that this book is available at Amazon.de now, they've ordered it, and have been told it will arrive in their mailbox probably on Wednesday, lucky people (LOL)!

That's pretty common. For some reason amazon.de is always among the first to have the ST books in store (at least a certain number of them). Some australian stores have although been pretty quick in the last year or so IIRC.
