Welcome to my first ever blog, on my brand new website!
I am launching my website today, with absolutely stunning artwork by Robert Rogalski! Feel free to click through all the pages and leave comments, when/where inclined. You can see my covers and illustrations, my upcoming convention appearances and books, and there are panel videos to watch and audio files of my stories to listen to!
Aside from setting up my website, I have had a very busy couple of weeks since attending Balticon. I am in the process of getting three of my own books ready to go to press at Phoenix Pick and Hadley Rille Books (with another two to publish soon after!). The first book to be published is Soulmates, which is a collection of short stories and novelettes written with Mike Resnick. Here is the gorgeous cover by Juan Miguel Aguilera:
The book is titled after our novelette of the same name, which originally sold to Asimov’s, was sold another dozen times to countries around the world, and was nominated for three SF awards (winning one of them!).
Despite that, we think that the book’s opening piece, “Benchwarmer”, is the better of the two (it also won its own award!). We hope we’re on the right track when our copyeditor says the story made her cry. <grin>
The book is slated to have a pre-launch at MidAmeriConII, in August! I will update with more details once I know. It’s time for tea, chocolate, and more words!
