The Fight For Your Future Began In Their Past. 

The last fleet of your Empire have been turned into balls of expanding debris in space. In the final minutes of the battle, you rescued thirteen captains and their crews. Those you had to leave behind are probably being eaten alive. 

You look around your empty bridge. All of your crew, and those rescued, are in stasis. In a mad, possibly treasonous, attempt to enlist the aid of the species from a system locked away from the rest of the universe, you are about to attempt the most dangerous Transit ever undertaken. 

Pulling your straps tight, one last thought shoots through your mind. Your Empire has fallen to the second most dangerous species ever encountered. Now you are going to ask the aid of the first. You know that is true, because your Empire created them. They are an experiment that went wrong. 

And now they are your only hope!

New Kind Of Warrior. A New Kind Of War. An Enemy Without Remorse. 
Shaffer's Sci Fi Epic continues to gather momentum as the first 13 Omegas join the battle. 
The aliens have all the technology, millions of years of society, and a much higher level of intelligence. The Terrans have what we have always had, wits and a wiliness to do what is necessary for the survival of the race. 
The aliens are going to be fighting to maintain control and preserve their order. The Omegas are going to be fighting to carve out a place in a new galactic empire. One where they want to be seen as equals and not servants to a higher cause. 
A superbly balanced Space Opera packed full of original ideas and nuance. Shaffer is again at his best as he delivers another fine nugget of space warfare science fiction.

Genre Bending Science Fiction That Redefines Space Warfare!

Shaffer's Epic Science Fiction Saga reaches dizzying new heights as the battle with the Easlank intensifies, rewarding Science Fiction fans with an ever widening story arc that proves wholly addictive. Alliances will be tested, new battle lines will be drawn as the final fate of the Empire hangs in the balance. Two sides on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to win. 

Relentlessly surprising and wholly unpredictable, Shaffer's Sentinels and Omegas are without equal as they face an enemy devoid of remorse. 

They don't have to be heroes, they just have to win!

An alien epic that's profoundly human, Shaffer continues to distinguish himself as an exciting new voice in Science Fiction.


The WEEKLY DEALS is a weekly digest email sent to readers signed up for the genre of your choice. This mailing uses a different sending engine than the Daily Deal itself, so some readers who miss the Daily Deal for whatever reason (spam filters, timing, vacations...) may get this mailing. (And if they get both, even better! we all know the data about how people often need to see things multiple times before they react...)

Double the coverage, double the reminders to grab your deal!

Mailing goes out EARLY on Wednesdays and covers that Wed until the next Wed. So if your deal is on a Tuesday only and you submit it the Monday before - that won't work for the weekly mailing. But if you submit on Monday for a Daily Deal on Tuesday, and your book is on sale Tues-Thurs, for example, then you're good - Daily Deal will go out on Tuesday and you'll be included in the Weekly Deals on Wed. showing the end of your sale on Thursday.
