I've received word that Ambassadors from Earth will be released in paperback in June of 2014. I was rather excited to to hear this news!

Amazon now lists the paperback version as available for pre-order. (Although I don't believe it's available for a few months yet.) And I see that the image of the cover has been updated to include the Emme logo, which will be included on the paperback's cover.

I just noticed that Ambassadors has received another one-star review on Amazon. I was kind of disheartened by what the guy said, so it's time to craft a diplomatic reply!

I haven't read it (yet) but wasn't the point of this series to precisely make it "personal" as this "reviewer" actually acknowledges in his post?. Military officials may prefer to stick to the facts, just the facts! In reference to the "avoid it" remark- (chuckle- and I'm kidding). Then of course one cannot please everybody and I always read the 5-star and 1-star reviews. But I certainly wouldn't base my judgment on 1-star reviews alone (some 5-star reviews are just as bad and useless).

The paperback version is now shipping and I have received a couple of copies.

I must confess to being embarrassed about how thick this book still is even in paperback.
