The LOCH: Heaven’s Lake – I am still writing the novel. Why is it taking so long? This book is very special to me… it could be the last book ever published by A & M Publishing and my goal is to make it the best. I also need to time it with an announcement about the movie, The LOCH. COVID-19 has pushed all major motion picture production dates back 6 months to a year or more. Like MEG: Generations, The LOCH: Heaven’s Lake will NOT be sold in stores or on Amazon, and unless a librarian pre-orders it the hardback won’t be in libraries either. WHY HAVE I CHOSEN THIS ROUTE? As an author, I love bookstores and will do all I can to support them; as a small boutique publisher our company was abused by the system. By pre-selling the novel to my readers (the only way ANYONE will be able to own a hardback) I avoid the abuse (losses) AND my most dedicated fans receive a very special LIMITED EDITION FIRST PRINT that will double or triple in value the day you receive it. (Those of you who ordered extra copies of MEG: Generations made a nice profit… I highly suggest you do so again… ESPECIALLY because of the movie! Think about how many millions of new fans the movie will create. They will buy The LOCH, then VOSTOK (book 2), and then they will see…. book 3, The LOCH: HEAVEN’S LAKE…. sold out! Signed 1st edition hardbacks on sale… for $175?
For those readers who placed orders back in 2019 – I’ll be including a few “bonus items.” For anyone who pre-orders The LOCH: HEAVEN’S LAKE… I will personally sign EVERY BOOK. Thank you for your patience… btw the story … WOW!

FR: Steve Alten
In December of 2019, I woke up early one morning at 4 am to find myself (at least for now) enjoying a rare moment of peace and calm – no rigidity or tremors shaking me awake from Parkinson’s Disease. It was as if my mind had found its way into the eye of the neurological storm. What happened next was totally unexpected – a wave of creativity came to me out of nowhere as beats in an entirely new giant prehistoric shark story. It was so good and so detailed I knew I had to get it down on paper before I fell back asleep. So I dragged myself upstairs to my office and began searching for the key to the entire story – a remote island that somehow I knew was out there … and there it was – Maug. Five hours later, I had written the treatment to an amazing TV series. And yet, I wanted something more… I wanted to visit the futuristic aquariums featured in the story… I wanted to witness these terrifying creatures swimming around their tank… moreover, I wanted them to react and respond to my presence. I shared these thoughts with my friend and assistant, Kelly Rollyson, and she said, “hell yeah!”
For the next 3 months I put together one of the most original and ambitious entertainment venues every imagined while Kelly recruited an international team of 3D animators, 2D artists, engineers, actors, producers and an ancient shark museum curator – all fans of MEG who wanted to be involved. On August 26, 2020 we launched www.SeaMonsterCove.com an interactive website which serves as the central hub for a virtual experience like no other. First and foremost the site plays host to the most advanced aquarium habitats ever designed – holding the most terrifying sea creatures that ever lived. The special effects are motion picture-worthy, and the wildlife doesn’t just swim around in benign circles; in fact, they are quite aware that you are watching them, and some of them clearly do not like it, especially when you enter their domain to do a little “cage diving.” The exception is Snowflake, our 63 foot, 25 ton prehistoric albino Mako shark (yes… albino!) whose tank in the O-Quarium backs up to the hotel suites in the Black Demon Inn. Snowflake is waiting for you there, circling outside your bedroom window. In each of these 360-degree experiences YOU, the user control the viewing angle, attempting to track the attacks as they happen (day and night versions are available). The action is nonstop and the creatures are so real that it is easy to lose yourself in a reprieve from reality.
Every facility you enter and every creature you encounter will be featured in our episodic TV series, Where Sea Monsters Roam, which tells the story of how these creatures came to be. There will also be a video game where members get to track and capture prehistoric life discovered in a 380 million year old aquifer located two miles beneath the sea floor.
In January of 2021 we’ll launch a Distance Learning Center– an extension of the highly successful ADOPT-an-AUTHOR teen reading program. The site will offer secondary school teachers FREE curriculum materials, projects, quizzes and tests tied to a new prototype version of my novels – “enhanced” with dozens of color images. Since 1999, over ten thousand teachers have registered as participants in our 5013-C non-profit program Adopt-an-Author, which has been called, “the most successful secondary school reading program in existence today.” Much of our success stems from my novels, which are very visual. The new enhanced pdf versions (available in the Sea Monster Cove library) are like nothing else out there. Coupled with all that we offer and will be adding, we believe combining virtual distance learning with entertainment is the way of the future and the only way to ensure an even playing field for all students regardless of race, religion, and economic class.
