‘Predator’s Games’ the riveting sequel of ‘The Den of the Assassin’, that propels readers into the shocking and deadly world of alternative energy speculation and depicts the world’s power-nations conspiring against one another in an extremely dangerous and potentially cataclysmic quest to control what was once the unthinkable unfolds as unique characters initially introduced in ‘The Den of the Assassin’ race into real and startling possibilities evolving around advances in alternative energy and mankind’s greed. ‘Predator’s Games’ by Peter Thomas Senese will be released during the Thanksgiving Holiday Season.
Peter Thomas Senese commented, “I am extremely pleased to announce the E-book publications of selected novels that readers from all over the world have embraced. It is indeed a very humbling experience to have such a large and diverse number of book lovers from Anchorage to Los Angeles to Christ Church to Beijing to St. Petersburg to Athens to Oslo to The Isle of Skye to New York, and from Anchorage to Cape Town and places in between have interest in my novels.
“I am, as I will continue to be, extremely grateful for the worldwide reception my stories have received. This interest and appreciation supports my strong belief that society continues to evolve into global citizens, and with each and every passing day, the concerns or interests that one person shares in one part of the world has relevance to another person living on the other side of the planet. I think this is truly remarkable, particularly since one of the primary undercurrents of each of my books is the value of global citizenship. The other undercurrent – and I once thought this was a secret only a few readers realized, but in time I came to know how much I have been mistaken – is that if you hear the voice attached to the words in my novels, you will hear the voice of a parent who deeply loves his child. As I now have come to understand, a substantial number of my readers have heard and identified with that voice. So perhaps these are two of the reasons why my writing continues to be embraced and evolve onto the global stage.”
Peter Thomas Senese’s E-book series launch will initially release each title in English. However, ‘The Den of the Assassin’, ‘Predator’s Games’, and ‘The Production’ will each be released in Spanish, German, and French within eight weeks of their e-book publication date. ‘Cloning Christ’ and ‘Chasing The Cyclone’ will be released in English as well as in Spanish, German, French, Italian, Mandarin (Chinese), Hindi, Russian, Portuguese, and Greek. With the expansive growth of consumers turning to e-book readers, the traditional distribution and delivery of an author’s written works has vastly changed.
“As an author who embraces my publishing independence, and having had considerable success, including having several of my books hit and stay on various publishing-industry best-seller lists, the ever-expanding use of e-book readers will allow for good writers with important issues that they desire to share with worldwide opportunity to reach audiences via e-book publications. Over the course of the past years, I have purposefully delayed the electronic release of my novels until I felt comfortable with the evolution of electronic distribution of my writings, and that my readership audience, who was accustomed to reading my books in hardcover format, would support my E-book publication. After receiving an incredible number of inquiries from book lovers all over the world expressing their desire to have my novels made available in E-book format and in multiple languages, I have become extremely comfortable that now is the time to launch selected books I have written on E-book format. This is very exciting!
According to the Association of American Publishers, E-book sales represent the largest single format for book sales in the United States. Paperback sales is considered second, followed by hardcover book sales, both of which sales figures continue to decline. Mike Shatzkin, the founder and chief executive of the Idea Logical Company, which advertises book publishers on digital change said referring to the expansive growth of consumer demand for E-books, “This was a day that was going to come, a day that had to come.” Shatzkin predicts that within a decade, fewer than 25% of all books sold will be print versions. Jeffrey P. Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive previously commented on how the E-book has overtaken both hardcover and paperback sales on the online retailer’s website when he said it is “Astonishing when you consider that we’ve been selling hardcover books for 15 years, and Kindle books for 33 months.”
