1. EMERGENCY DEEP IS IN BOOKSTORES NOW!!!

The all-new military series from the USA Today bestselling author

Michael DiMercurio

Emergency Deep

USA Today Bestselling Author Michael DiMercurio Emergency Deep

First in an electrifying new series from “A MASTER RIVALING TOM CLANCY.” Publishers Weekly

U.S. Navy submarine commander Peter Vornado is at the top of his game in underwater warfare when a devastating illness takes him out of the service and almost to the grave. Without duty, honor, or something to fight for, his life is as good as over.

But the CIA needs a man like Vornado…

A terrorist cabal has acquired a scrapped Soviet sub from the Cold War -- a technologically advanced failure still able to outrun any torpedo or enemy vessel and strike at will. With a nuclear payload, it will enable them to strike directly at Israeland throw the world into chaos. All that remains is to modernize the sub with the latest technology.

Only one man can infiltrate the group, take the helm, and stop a holocaust -- a man who has already stared down death, and is ready to do battle once more…

“Compelling and visionary. DiMercurio’s characters run as deep as his submarines themselves!”
--Joe Buff, author of Crush Depth and Thunder in the Deep

Michael DiMercurio was an honors graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a National Science Foundation scholar at MIT, a graduate of the Navy Nuclear Training Program, and a Navy diver. While a lieutenant, he served as a chief nuclear engineer qualified officer and ship’s diver on the USS Hammerhead, a Sturgeon-class fast-attack nuclear submarine of the Atlantic Fleet. DiMercurio and the Hammerhead spent more than fifty days trailing Russian nuclear submarines.

DiMercurio’s Web site is www.terminalrun.com. He can be reached at readermail@terminalrun.com. DiMercurio lives in Princeton, New Jersey, where he is hard at work on his next submarine novel.

2. THE 2005 NOVEL

For now I’ll call it TITLE: CLASSIFIED II. It is the second in the series started by EMERGENCY DEEP with continuing characters – at least those who survived the disaster at the conclusion of EMERGENCY DEEP!

It has been delivered to Penguin Putnam, and they love it!

Unlike the first in the series, it presents a deeper challenge – how to make it a “stand alone” novel, self-contained, able to be read and enjoyed, even though it has continuing characters from the first book. And how do I keep from revealing the plot of the previous work? We’ll know who lived and who died, but no other details will penetrate to the present book.

That said, the characters lived through an epic event from the 2004 book, and like all of us, they carry their scars with them. The weight of their burden remains with them, always. But that doesn’t mean the reader needs to see all that!

Trust me, you can pick up any DiMercurio book and enjoy it if it is your first. There is no particular order to read them in, and it might even be the most fun to start at the newest and read backwards to the first.

3. NEW CHIEF OF STAFF – TIM SHARP

Tim Sharp, president of the Michael DiMercurio Fan Club, is now the Chief of Staff, going through the email account and alerting me to all contacts. Tim conducts a weekly chat about the novels and corresponds with readers around the world. In addition, Tim has done an excellent job of being the new test reader, and he read EMERGENCY DEEP before anyone other than the publisher, and (thank God), Tim loved it. Look for more commentary on the terminalrun.com website from Tim as he serves at the test reader for TITLE CLASSIFIED II (the 2005 book, not its real name!).

4. THE WEBMASTER – BILL PARKER

Bill Parker of parkerinfo.com has done an amazing job making the terminalrun.com website (and the new constructioncostcontrol.com website) a reality. Bill has been one of my dearest friends since the beginning, and came into sonar range after he put up Dale Brown’s Megafortress.com website – check all of them out, they are simply amazing. Bill specializes in author websites – even for those who are not yet published – as well as literary agent sites, but don’t let that stop you if you need a site. Contact Bill at bparker@parkerinfo.com.

5. BACHELOR LIFE, DATING CHRONICLES AND “THE MAKING OF” WEBSITE UPDATE

For those of you who are unlucky enough to be involved in my personal life, you know I’ve gone through a second divorce this year. My ex and I remain best friends as we raise our 4 year old daughter and continue to raise my two teenagers from my first marriage. Life is now radically different for me, and since mid-year I’ve been dating thanks to Match.com (my code name is BlackLab1980…check it out if you want to see something funny). The stories from the real life dating adventures could fill more books than all I’ve written to date. I’ve decided that some of the “sea stories” from dating in the 40s are so compelling that they must be told. Anyone out there seeking a book proposal??? As one of my female friends keeps saying, “Sex and the City” ain’t got nothin’ on you. In any case, watch the terminalrun.com website for these sea stories, which will be on the NEWS section, but also watch for a “THE MAKING OF…” update describing what was going on in my personal life during the writing of each book. As I’ve been told a thousand times, my life is arguably as entertaining as my characters’ lives, if not more so. It’s the old Chinese curse, “may you live in interesting times.”

***********************************************************************

A final word to everyone who has sent me an e-mail, please accept my promise that I will get back to you. I read them all in real time, but can’t always answer them for a few weeks. If you are patient, you’ll hear back from me.

See you at test depth,

Michael DiMercurio
