How do you get Trek lit news?

I'm interested in an overview of what's going on with Trek lit, currently, and was wondering where I can find such news. For example, what current series exist, as well as news about the business side, like the latest writer news, future releases, and whatever the current rumors are. Are there sites that cover this? Newsletters?

My recommendations are this board right here, as well as Memory Beta, and 8of5's site. Also...most DRG3 news comes to us from Facebook

Re: How do you get Trek lit news?

^Me, too. I don't think you'll find a better source for Trek lit news anywhere else. Whether finding out what's coming down the proverbial pipe, what's out there now that's newly released, or finding something out about a book that's been out of print for years, this is the place to look or ask a question.

Here. Between threads started in this forum and the regular links to sites run by forum regulars, I have everything I need.

Re: How do you get Trek lit news?

I learn of new novels and the release schedule from this very forum. Sometimes I stumble upon the new cover images on startrek.com assuming I go there before checking this site out for the day.

Re: How do you get Trek lit news?

Along with posts on here and 8of5's The Trek Collective, it's also a good idea to like the authors on Facebook. Most authors tend to use FB as a promotional tool, so this actually applies to non-Trek writers too.

Re: How do you get Trek lit news?

I just started getting into Trek-Lit this year so I'm afraid to go looking for "news" as I'm still reading books from the early 2000s. I basically use the Trek-Collective site as a guide, and it's been a pretty good guide so far.
