Author Description:
Steve P. Vincent is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Jack Emery and Mitch Herron conspiracy thriller series.

Steve has a degree in political science, a thesis on global terrorism, a decade as a policy advisor and training from the FBI and Australian Army in his conspiracy kit bag.

When he's not writing, Steve enjoys whisky, sports and dreaming up ever more elaborate conspiracy theories. Oh, and travel. He's travelled extensively through Europe, the United States and Asia.

Interview Excerpt

Up next is the fourth book in my Mitch Herron series. It’s a cool, punchy thriller set on the island of Fiji. Herron finds himself caught in a civil war between two warring factions, but the more involved he gets the more he learns the true power behind the conflict.

Social media: I find Twitter helps a little with book sales and Facebook helps a little more. I don’t think either are super important to me. The key to my relationship with readers is my mailing list…

Covers: I’ve been really lucky to work with three great designers during my career so far: Stuart Bache, Johnny Xou and Amanda Pillar. Look them up if you’re in the market for a cover. My process is to stay out of the way

Audio books: Having the books in audio is great fun. Just like with the covers, I’ve been lucky to work with some amazing narrators. It’s hard to say what impact the audio has had on ebook and paper sales, but there’s definitely a very strong market for audio. The up-front costs can be prohibitive, but some talented narrators are prepared to work on a royalty share basis…

Novel collection called Dead And Gone: I love the idea of great value bundles for hungry readers. I may all my books available in series bundles, and I’ve had the pleasure to feature novels in two multi-author bundles as well…

Primary genre: Thriller. The Herron series are action thrillers, while the Emery series are political / conspiracy thrillers.

Reader list: There’s about 10,000 readers on the list, most of them reasonably active. I have sign-ups in my back matter and my website, and I run ad campaigns to encourage signups. I find organic growth is the best approach, although it’s slower.

Living in Australia: The internet lets me reach all the places I need to. My biggest readership is in the United States and I’ve never felt disconnected from them. The mailing list, social media, paid advertising and word of mouth work just fine for me. Probably the only disadvantage in living in a smaller market is the limited number of events and signing opportunities.

Nick has fought for the lives of others, but as the terrorists close in on him, he must now save himself. Brought to the end of his own strength, he discovers the answers to his soul’s longing.

Amazon Author Profile

Author Description:
I grew up on Long Island, in a pleasant, suburban town about 30 miles from New York City. I loved to read from a very early age and graduated from Columbia in 1974 with a degree in English. Not encouraged by the job prospects for English majors at the time, I went on to medical school at Northwestern, where in addition to my medical degree, I acquired a life-long love of deep dish pizza. I did a residency in Anesthesiology at Columbia Presbyterian and spent most of my career at Stony Brook, where I ultimately attained the academic rank of Professor and Vice-Chairman for Administration, Department of Anesthesiology.

When I was a child, I generally read five or more books per week, and even then, I had a dim sense that I could do at least as well as many of the stories that I was reading. Finally, around 1985, with a job and a family and my first personal computer, I began writing. I quickly discovered that it was not as easy as I had imagined, and like most beginning writers, it took me many years to produce a publishable work of fiction. My first novel, Edward Maret: A Novel of the Future, came out in 2001. It won the ASA Literary Prize for 2001 and received excellent reviews from Science Fiction Chronicle, InfinityPlus, Scavenger's Newsletter and many others.

My agent at the time urged me to write mysteries, as mysteries are supposed to have a larger readership and be easier to publish than science fiction. Since I have read almost as many mysteries as science fiction and fantasy, and since I enjoy them just as much, I had no objection to this plan. The Kurtz and Barent mystery series, Surgical Risk, The Anatomy Lesson and Seizure followed between 2002 and 2009. Reviewers have compared them favorably to Patricia Cornwell and Robin Cook and they've received positive reviews from The Midwest Book Review, Mystery Review Magazine, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Lady M's Mystery International, Mystery Scene Magazine, Library Journal and many others.

In 2014, I published a science fiction short story, "To the Ends of the Earth in the Deep Blue Sea" on Kindle for Amazon. Since then, I have made all of my previously published novels available for purchase on Kindle and now, in June, 2017 I am about to embark on a new venture. I will be publishing new novels on Kindle, the first of which is entitled The Cannibal's Feast. It's a science fiction story of corporate warfare in space. The next, coming out in early 2018, will be another science fiction novel tentatively entitled The City of Dust, a tale set on an abandoned world after the collapse of the First Interstellar Empire of Mankind.
