FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MEG: Bestselling Giant Shark Thriller Released As A New 20th Anniversary Edition; To Be A Major Motion Picture

West Palm Beach, FL – Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water … MEG by NY Times and international bestselling author, Steve Alten, is back with an all-new expanded 20th anniversary edition mass market paperback and a motion picture from Warner Brothers, to be directed by Eli Roth. The new novel, to be released this week by VIPER PRESS (a division of A&M Publishers) includes a never-before published prequel and 17 original graphic illustrations.

MEG is currently utilized by thousands of high school teachers in the US, in collaboration with Alten’s non-profit, Adopt-An-Author reading program. The free program is designed to excite young adults to read through the use of page-turning thrillers and through direct contact with the authors.

Steve Alten has kept his fans in awe through MEG and its sequels. It’s been a dream for many of them to see MEG on the big screen. Now that dream will become a reality. “I remember reading JAWS as a teen,” says Alten. “The book and movie got me interested in Great White sharks, which led me to Carcharodon Megalodon, the species’ 70-foot, 70,000 pound prehistoric cousin. Twenty years later I penned the first draft of MEG. It took another twenty years to get the movie greenlit. The MEGheads have been champing at the bit, but I know it’ll be worth the wait. And this new version of the MEG novel is light years above the original.”

NY Times and international bestselling author Steve Alten penned MEG in the days when he was struggling to support his family of five. MEG was a labor of love and a storyline he had been thinking about for years. After selling his car to pay for his editing fees, Alten could only wait to see how the book would be received. His tireless nights and weekends spent writing resulted in a two-book, seven-figure deal with Bantam Doubleday. Fast-forward nearly 20 years and Alten has delighted his fans with MEG sequels and now the promise of enjoying MEG on the big screen.
