New world launching! Hugh Howey’s Sand is open now!

image

We’re pleased to announce a new sci-fi world launching on Kindle WorldsSand Saga by the formidable Hugh Howey! With the enthusiasm around Howey’s Silo Saga world based on his New York Times bestselling WOOL series, we couldn’t wait to team up again to offer fans another world to explore. But unlike WOOL which focuses on a dystopian world under totalitarian rule, Sand Saga is an exploration of lawlessness.

Here is a land ignored. Here is a people left to fend for themselves.

Welcome to Sand Saga:

West of No Man’s Land and east of the Stony Mountains is a godforsaken land covered in misery and sand. The people on this scrap of earth survive only by donning suits that allow them to dive deep into the dunes to recover scraps from a forgotten age. They have assembled a new and fragile society on the shifting sands. A land of lawlessness, of pirates and gangs, of Lords with brief and nasty reigns. The nearest city is Springston, with its great wall that holds back the westerly winds. South is Low-Pub. And north, the legendary and forgotten town of Danvar. Anyone who leaves this world is never heard from again, but maybe that’s because they’d just as soon forget they were ever there.  

There is much left to explore in the world of Sand Saga! Whether you tell the story of its vast prehistory, follow one of the siblings in a side adventure, or write a tale set in the newly discovered Danvar, your imagination is the limit.

It’s Tuesday’s top title! Every Tuesday we’ll highlight one of our amazing Kindle Worlds’ titles that you won’t want to miss. This week’s title: Dirty Work by Tom Pinchuk!

Comics creator and screenwriter Tom Pinchuk has brought his ingenious imagination and signature humor to the G.I. Joe world. Released only two short weeks ago, this Kindle Worlds’ novella has already earned 5 stars, making it clear that we’re not the only ones excited about Pinchuk’s foray into prose.

More about Dirty Work:

Masterminds. Commandos. Joes and Vipers. Everybody deals with horrible bosses sooner or later.

When Cobra Commander makes a move to take over an island palace (Why? No reason aside from Serpentor’s nonsensical order), G.I. Joe must respond, no matter how small the operation. So, with all other Joes engaged, this unpleasant task falls to an injured Alpine and the ever-ornery Beach Head. Somehow, they’ve go to take the palace back with no gear, no support, and no respect.

It’d be just another workday, if the palace didn’t turn out to be full of unlucky janitors on the wrong shift. Now, what looked like business as usual has become a dire hostage rescue—one that will teach these Joes a harsh lesson about the most important part of the job.

Jasmine wants to fall in love but knows she never will. That kind of luck doesn’t happen to a girl like her—a girl from a hardscrabble past and a heart that’s grown a protective shell.

When Jasmine arrives in New York for her cousin Amber’s funeral, she hopes to leave the past behind and start a whole new life. She meets Avery Stanz, her cousin’s former roommate, who provides a reference to Miss Black, the imposing madam who runs a high-class escort agency. Soon, Jasmine is propelled into a whole new life of money, glamour, and no-strings-attached sex—or so she thinks.

What she doesn’t expect is to meet a sexy stranger who intrigues her, confounds her, and makes her feel things she’s never felt before. Unfortunately, she discovers he’s been keeping a secret that can either make or break their relationship. Will she follow her heart and give him a second chance? Or, will their pasts prevent them from finding the true love they both deserve?
