Did you know there’s only one week to go before Implanted is loosed upon the world?
Things are rolling along–make that steamrolling–and I wanted to briefly check in before I head to Austin for ArmadilloCon later this week.
I had a great time at RWA Nationals in Denver. It was intense, inspiring, and I left with lots of new contacts and things to think about. This is me (furthest on the right) and my New Mexico chaptermates having a blast:
When I got back to town, the amazing Fran Wilde put together a worldbuilding roundtable with a group of awe-inspiring SF authors, including me, Mike Chen, Malka Older, Peng Shepard, and Tade Thompson. Check it out at Tor.com.
I also got interviewed by the great team at Unreliable Narrators, where we talk about Implanted, the path to publication, and some of my influences. I had a lot of fun with their thoughtful questions.
Finally, early reviews have been trickling in, which is gratifying to see. Even more so since people seem to like Implanted! Special thanks to all the reviewers who took a chance on a debut author.
Hopefully one of those convinced you to preorder the book, if you haven’t already!
I’m thrilled to share the news that Angry Robot will be publishing my debut novel Implanted, out this August. I’m certain the next few months will be an amazing whirlwind in the lead up to the release.
You can read more about announcement at the Angry Robot homepage. You can also check out the cover and read a little more about my story world over at SFF World. And if you are really interested, Christopher Cornell on the Unreliable Narrators podcast teased a few questions out of me a few weeks ago while I was on there promoting the release of the Abandoned Places anthology from Shohola press.
You can even add the book to your To-Read list on Goodreads if that’s your thing.
All that said, it is an exciting time and I’m looking forward to the next stage on this journey. Accordingly, there will be some changes around here, so I hope you’ll stick around!
