Scott Sigler stopped by Book Soup in Los Angeles the other day. He read from his newly printed Ancestor, answered as many questions as we had, and signed a whole bunch of books for everyone who showed up.
It’s always fun when Scott comes to visit, and if he’s headed to your town this time around, you really should go to the reading and the bar stop after. He’s very generous with his time and tells lots of funny stories.
My favorite moment from this stop was Scott’s joy as he showed off the cover for The Starter, which comes out close to the start of football season. It’s a really cool cover, but what makes me love it already is how proud and excited Scott and A (the other half of Dark Overlord Media) are for it.
Also, sometimes you get lucky and end up in the video podcast.
Have you heard that horror author Scott Sigler has a new book out in 3 days?! That’s right! June 22, 2010, you can pick up Ancestor another Scott Sigler book in the bookstores. You can even pre-order it now! It’s the third Sigler book Crown Publishing has released since 2008 and it is shaping up to be even better than the others.
Ancestor is all about genetics and greed and of course death and destruction. Sigler is a master of weaving together an intense, insane, and creepy plot for precisely developed characters to act in. I haven’t read or listened to the original Ancestor, but I’ve already pre-ordered my copy. I’ve really enjoyed everything else I’ve heard or read by him.
But if you’re not convinced by love, watch the book trailer here. Or you can always check his website for the original Ancestor feed as well as details on his other stories. You can even sign up for the new feed and get prequel stories before you get the novel. If it’s audio, it’s free. Print you have to buy, but what’s to complain about with so much good free stuff?
Oh, and Scott’s doing a book tour starting June 22. He’s posted his nationwide schedule here, so go and meet him if he’s anywhere near you! I’ll be catching his reading, sporting my Krakens shirt, and hanging out at the bar afterward when he hits Southern California. It’s always a fun time!
