Re: E-Book Status

Does this have anything to do with ebooks being released late (like February's Sling and Arrows not being released yet)?

No. Hell, the eBooks have been "shipping" inconsistently pretty much all along.....

I doubt it. The decision was made some time ago.

And I wish it had come along a little later, since I had a CoE pitch awaiting approval at the time the decision was made. But that's my own fault for taking too long to get it turned in. And maybe I'll get the chance to rework it in another form.

Bummer. I've been following the series in the print compilations and, by and large, I've enjoyed the heck out of them. I'll be sure to pick up Creative Couplings and Wounds when I spot them in stores. Here's hoping.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Re: E-Book Status

Now I feel bad about always putting off trying out the Ebooks. I'm assuming it would be to early to ask if we ever get the see The Da Vinci and/or members of her crew in other series?
At least I still have 66 of the stories left to read. So far I've only read the first 2 print collections.

Re: E-Book Status

So just when I start buying EBooks.. I got me a Palm just for that (well, not really but it helps)... So my question and surprised it hasn't been asked is why the hiatus? Was it not doing well?

Unfortunate, but not unexpected given how they managed to price themselves the market (or at least my market). I look forward to their return, hopefully at a more economical price point.

Thanks! But Creative Couplings has been out for several months now....

Re: E-Book Status

I know; bookstores in my area are not the most timely of institutions. It'll show up eventually, I'm sure. And if not, I'll get it off the web; I may not do the e-book thang, but I'm not entirely a luddite.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

So sorry to hear this! I just got my Sony Reader for Christmas. I've been catching up on everything after Creative Couplings and really enjoying it. I just want to thank all the wonderful writers who contributed to SCE/COE.

Thank You.

Re: E-Book Status

I guess what will happen is that Pocket will try out some non ST eBook series in the old ST slot and, if they fail to do ST's numbers then ST has a chance at a return.

Re: E-Book Status

You guys all did amazing work and made me look good (yes, Bubba, even you).
I made you look good, Keith? Well, that sure as hell wasn't my intention.

And let me throw out there that I'm incredibly proud of my association with S.C.E./C.o.E., which I've enjoyed since John Ordover allowed me to be the guy who broke the story and announced the line on Star Trek.com. I'd not be co-writing fiction had it not been for the opportunities S.C.E. offered me, nor would I be doing it without the support and direction I've received over the years from the co-creators of the line.

Yes, Keith, even you.

With Keith and John's blessings (together and separately), we got to create an origin for the whole shebang (not to mention a whole starship and crew in the Lovell), we got to lend our hand to developing my favorite character in prose Star Trek bar none (that being one Kieran Duffy), we got to mourn his passing along with my auxiliary back-up favorite characters in prose Star Trek (namely Stevens and Corsi), we got to write a sequel to a freakin' animated series episode (maybe my most satisfying accomplishment in Star Trek yet!) and we were entrusted with relaunching the line when S.C.E. became C.o.E. -- and that was a very flattering extension of grace and trust by Monsieur DeCandido, and one the importance of which was not lost on me when he asked.

So thanks to you, good sir, for letting us run rampant with your baby. I hope we brought her in by curfew with her prom dress not too sullied. Maybe we can take her out again sometime? I promise not to be too grabby.

Kevin
