TNG novel approved! - KRAD's Inaccurate Guide to Life
ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
TNG novel approved!
Paramount has approved the proposal for my 20th-anniversary Star Trek: The Next Generation novel, which will be one of four novels carrying the story of the Enterprise-E forward after Nemesis to be released in 2007. The first was Death in Winter by Michael Jan Friedman, released in hardcover this past fall, the paperback reprint of which will hit the stands in '07, to be followed by J.M. Dillard's Resistance.

The third one will be mine. I'll have more details soonish, but for now, I'll just tease y'all with the title:


*big grin*

(The fourth hasn't been approved yet, but it's by an author who's written TNG before, which I feel safe in saying given how incredibly wide a field that is.....)

Edited to add: The fourth book has since been announced as being by Peter David.

[Joey Styles]Oh my god![/Styles] That's awesome. I trust you'll let us know when it's available for pre-order from Amazon.

As if Peter David's Q novels weren't enough to bust my gut, now I'll have to handle your take on him? This might get me buying Trek novels again.

Congrats, Keith.

Well, my first thought was "What kind of hint is that supposed to be?". Then I picked up the book I'm reading now, "Q-in-law", and realized after a few seconds what you were saying. Hey, I haven't had my coffee yet. :) I'm looking forward to the book.

Let's hope it's a HB original, and a big seller, with all of the royalties those bring.

It's not gonna be a hardcover, more's the pity -- thus far, my one and only foray into hardcover-dom was my Andromeda novel -- but I'm with you on the other two parts. *grin*

Re: Books

If you have indeed "created" a book, then you've already written and you don't need me. If you mean you have an idea for a book, then you should write it yourself. I have no need to collaborate with you in order to use your idea 'cause I got plenty of my own. Ideas are a cheap commodity -- it's the execution of the idea that matters.

Good luck!
