Since this book is considerably longer than the previous books in the series (about 20-30k words longer), the retail price for the print version will be $16.99 USD, one dollar higher than the other books. Pricing is controlled by my publisher and the printer. I only have control over any special sales I may run at the various conventions I attend/sell at.
Which reminds me, I still need to preregister for ConNooga. I’m just waiting to hear back from the chair of the writing/author track about available panels and whether or not they will be providing authors’ alley tables. If not, I need to see if any table spaces are still available to buy. If not, I’ll go back to book pushing with a few copies of each book loaded into my roller bag.
Now for the Fun With Giant Spiders segment of our program! Arachnophobes need not read below this point.

Oh wow! I didn’t dream I’d find such a perfect illustration for what I pictured in my head.
I’m sure many of you have heard the term “Jumping the Shark” in reference to when a TV show crosses the line of having even semi-plausible plotlines. My husband has a similar phrase for movies or books which just don’t pan out in the end, where apparently the writers copped out: “Giant Spider.” This originated from his reaction to Stephen King’s It.
Well, just for shits and giggles, I decided to incorporate a giant spider of my own into The Daedalus Enigma. Only I made sure that it was plausible within the parameters of the storyline and actually fairly early in the book rather than a cop out ending.
Have fun finding her and learning how Viktor deals with her.
