      Thanks, Hal! We started out focused on novels, but we are beginning to add eBooks, short story collections, non-fiction, etc. to our lists.

  • Eberry8049

    I’ve read all of Steve Berry’s book, up to The Columbus Affair. which I believe is his latest. Is he going to work on the next book? Prefer Cotton Malone books.

    • Brandon

      Then you are in luck! The King’s Deception will be out June 11th. We’ll get this added to the site soon.

  • JTS

    How about one complete chronological (by published date) list- like there is for Vince Flynn? Thanks!

    • Brandon

      I’ll definitely consider it. He’s probably the only one who has that because he was one of the first (or maybe even the first) author on the site. Actually, if you hadn’t have mentioned it, I probably would’ve gotten rid of it next time I saw it.
