Stacked High: Issue 5: The Official Newsletter of Gilbert M. Stack

Welcome back to Stacked High. Spring is around the corner and with it the release of the third volume of my Legionnaire series—the Jeweled Hills.

Tribune Marcus Venandus and his two trusted officers have gone through hell in their journey north from the Fire Islands and across the Sea of Grass. Arriving at Amatista in the Jeweled Hills, Marcus is looking forward to a much deserved rest in the home of his half-brother, but fate has other plans for the legionnaire. Soon he will be wishing he’d never heard of his brother’s city. Surrounded by enemies and crippled by internal divisions, Amatista is already on its knees and ready to fall. Marcus must act decisively to save everything his brother has built, but without his beloved legions behind him, can Marcus and his friends survive their visit to the Jeweled Hills?

The Jeweled Hills will be available for $3.99 starting April 5, but if you pre-order it before that date you can get it for the reduced price of $2.99. You can find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Smashwords and other e-sellers.

And just in case April is too long to wait, I have a special treat for Survivor fans—Panic Button: Lighthouse Island.

Ellen Specter thought she knew what she was getting into when she won her spot on the new Reality TV show, Panic Button and a chance to win a quarter million dollars. Take a few contestants, isolate them from the rest of the world, set them a few competitions and watch the sparks fly as people forge and break alliances in a desperate attempt not to be voted out. Too bad that’s not the way things work on Panic Button—a show designed to terrorize people into freely giving up their chance at the prize money. To make matters worse the show is run by a mentally disturbed host who doesn’t seem to care how badly he has to hurt people to convince them to leave.

When you’re ready to Panic you can find the book for $2.99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Smashwords, and other fine e-retailers.

And in case you missed them, you can still pick up the books that launched the Legionnaire saga:
