Okay, so somehow July ended up being the month where everything is happening. Here’s what’s on deck:
- Ravenfall release. This is my second solo-authored novel to make its way out into the world. Find out more and an excerpt here, and here’s a post I wrote on the experience of writing Ava, my genderqueer co-protagonist.
- I have two short stories in best-ofs coming out this month, one “A Heap of Broken Images” in The Year’s Best Science Fiction, Thirty-First Annual Edition (originally published in We See a Different Frontier), and “Event Horizon” in The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror, 2014 Edition (originally published in Strange Horizons)
- I’ll be at Readercon, and I’ll be reading with the Long Hidden group, which I’m beyond excited about. It’s my first Readercon, so if you’ll be there come say hi.
- And of course my essay collection, A Brief History of the Future, came out yesterday. Pick it up in paperback here and ebook here, and yesterday I did a guest post at The Radish about writing it and about the importance of blogging.
So wow, yeah. August should be more sedate, except for all the writing I’ll be doing. Rookwar will be finished by the end of this month, but then I have the as-yet untitled book I’m writing about Kae from Line and Orbit, and I have an idea for another tropey-as-fuck Big Gay SF novel (not Line and Orbit-related) that I hope to begin work on in the fall.
And I’m teaching an intensive three-week course and looking for a job. And I’ve decided to retool my entire doctoral dissertation.
