As the blurbs above suggest, the ARISEN series enjoys a level of fan loyalty and fervor that has resulted in sales of over half a million copies and over 5,000 Amazon reviews averaging 4.7 stars out of 5. (Including a 4.9-star average for each of the last two books in the series, The Siege and ENDGAME. This is rather hard to maintain. Basically, if one grumpy person puts up a 2-star review, I need thirty 5-star reviews just to cancel it out!) Additionally, the audiobook editions (narrated by the incomparable R.C. Bray) have generated over $3 million in revenue, and the series is in various slow-motion negotiations for a film, TV, or miniseries deal. (News on that to you when I get it!) There are also two new books in the works ARISEN : Raiders (about the MARSOC Marines on the Kennedy from the Fall through the final battle with Spetsnaz… yes, including MGySgt Fick) and ARISEN : Operators (about all the special operations forces at Hereford between the Fall and the final battle at CentCom… yes, including Alpha team) so it should be a pretty amazing year for ARISEN fans.
At any rate… having now produced two prequels and two side-books (and counting), in addition to the numbered main series, I'm constantly getting asked (and so, evidently, are Google and Amazon) which order to read these things in. If you've been feeling baffled on this count yourself, or just want to learn more, this totally free e-book is for you! (Okay, it's still $0.99 on Amazon coaxing them to price-match it down to free is proving more vexatious than usual but for now you can get it totally free from Smashwords.)
Hope Never Dies.
