What am I writing next?

Now that I’m in the midst of wrapping up Armageddon’s Arrow, my Star Trek: The Next Generation novel for Pocket Books, I’ve been getting asked by folks what I’ll be working on next. Until now, I’ve only been able to tell people that in addition to ramping up for another collaboration with Kevin Dilmore–that being the fourth novel and our second entry for the still minty-fresh Star Trek: Seekers series–I also have been contracted to write a novel for another tie-in property…one for which I’ve never written, and working with a new editor and publisher.

While I’m not allowed (for the moment) to offer up any specifics so far as plot lines or publication dates, I have been cleared to at least tell people what I’ll be doing over the next few months. Here’s a hint:


So, while I go outside to cut my grass, feel free to chew on that for a bit.

Clock’s ticking, yo.

    So congratulations on writing a 24 novel, I guess. Never watched the series, but I know you’re a big fan. 🙂

    I knew it!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. JeffDJ says:

    Cool, I didn’t even know there were “24” tie-in books. Congrats, Dayton!

      *cough* 24: Deadline *cough*…


    • Dayton Ward says:

      As Jim says, there’s his own novel, the still relatively minty-fresh Deadline, which came out back in August. Before that (back when the show was still in regular production), there were eleven novels released by a different publisher, set prior to the events of Day 1 and with the umbrella title 24: Declassified.

    Aw, man, I was hoping for NCIS!

    But serious congratulations are in order, regardless. This counts as a Very Big Deal.


    • Dayton Ward says:

      Titan has acquired a license to do novels based on NCIS: Los Angeles, but it’s being treated as a separate entity from the original show, similar to how Trek is now (usually) licensed for the individual series vs. a broad umbrella that covers the entire franchise. I don’t think we’ll be seeing any novels based on NCIS: Original Recipe.
