My first brand-new novel to be released in 2014 will be Star Trek: Serpents in the Garden (possibly my only brand-new novel published in 2014--we'll have to wait and see) goes on sale April 29. Pocket Books has released the cover, so I can show it to you, along with the brief description.
An original novel set in the universe of "Star Trek: The Original Series."
Early in his five-year mission commanding the U.S.S. Enterprise, Captain James T. Kirk found himself caught up in a growing conflict on the planet Neural. To maintain the balance of power against a force being armed by the Klingons, he provided weapons to his friends, the Hill People. Years later, Admiral Kirk learns that the Klingon presence on the planet has grown considerably, in possible violation of the Treaty of Organia. Did his impulse as a young captain turn out disastrously wrong? Should he--could he--have done more to eliminate the Klingon threat? To find out, he embarks on a secret mission back to Neural--where he might just be the only person who can prevent an interstellar war.

In case you can't tell, that's movie-era Kirk, back on the troubled planet seen in the episode "A Private Little War." Why? You'll have to read it to find out. What I can say is that it's action-packed, Kirk-centric fun. If you're a ST fan, I hope you'll read it and enjoy it.
