My new book, ZERO G, was released December 7th 2018.
It’s one kid versus an entire band of space pirates in this cosmic middle grade caper from New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells.
Zero is just one of 20,000 people aboard a spaceship bound for a new planet set to be colonized. The journey is over a century long but luckily, everyone is in stasis, so they’ll be safe and sound asleep during the trip. Everyone that is, except for Zero, whose pod has malfunctioned, waking him up a hundred years early. His initial excitement in roaming the ship alone quickly turns to a heart-stopping interstellar adventure when a family of space pirates show up, trying to hijack the ship and take the colonizers hostage. With everyone he knows fast asleep, it’s up to Zero to think fast and find a way to stop them–all on his own.

Become Dan’s Patron!
Why Patreon? I’ve spent a long time looking for a way to give more to my readers–more stories, more writing tips, and more behind-the-scenes peeks. Patreon is the perfect way to do all three. I’m going to start releasing my novels in a serialized, annotated format: every month you’ll get a new chapter of each, complete with my thoughts and notes about what I wrote and why. This will include previously published fiction with brand new commentary, snippets of future projects that I’m still playing around with, and even a bunch of super old trunk novels from when I was trying to break in. And believe me: those old novels are BAD. Like, super bad. Some of them I haven’t even read in 15+ years. But when we read them together we’ll be able to see the process I went through to grow as a writer, and how I learned what the tools were and how to use them (and how to break them).
Awesome Rewards! Every patron will get a basic level of cool content, including updates, cover previews, and other stuff. On top of that I’ll be releasing something cool every week, with four different pledge levels to give you access to different things.
