|See, I wasn't kidding.|
- GHOST PLANET's cover appeared in an RT Book Reviews list of cool covers for upcoming releases.
- Authors Linnea Sinclair and Kat Richardson endorsed the book with glowing reviews.
- In my first ever printed review, Publishers Weekly called it: "an absorbing and exciting story full of science, sex, and intriguing plot twists."
- RT Book Reviews gave it 4.5 stars and said "thoroughly impresses ... a pitch-perfect balance of a cohesive scientific vision with poignant, naked emotion."
- Co-bloggers Laurie and Donna joined me in Seattle for my first release party. (Too far for Pippa - a hop, skip, and a GIGANTIC jump.)
- The book was nominated for the 2013 RWA RITA Award for best first book, ON MY BIRTHDAY.
- The book was named the main pick for April of the Vaginal Fantasy Hangout book club (created by actress/producer/writer Felicia Day) - also ON MY BIRTHDAY.
- Veronica Belmont (also of VF book club fame) named the book a suggested read for The Sword & Laser book club.
- The VF gals gave the book a super positive review on YouTube. I ate more cupcakes.
- The book was named one of the "best of 2012" by Regina Small, senior editor and reviews coordinator for RT.
- My agency sold audio rights to Audible.com (for GHOST PLANET as well as my other two upcoming titles).
Wow, what a great run. And we're just getting started! An audio book to come, and I'm still waiting for that movie deal. ;)
My second book from Tor (THE OPHELIA PROPHECY) is due out in less than six months, and I'm working on revisions for a third book (ECHO 8). (Have a brand-new project in the works as well - stay tuned for more on that.)
OPHELIA is a post-apocalyptic biopunk romance about some sexy transgenics and an archivist with a dangerous secret. E8 is a near-future, multiverse romantic suspense that explores possible connections between quantum physics and psi (also a Bermuda Love Triangle between a parapsychologist, an FBI agent, and an energy vampire).
Thanks for joining the party! We have a door prize: Leave a comment for a chance at winning a signed ARC of THE OPHELIA PROPHECY (official release: April 1), hot off the presses. SO hot the only person in possession of one at this point is Jessica Subject, who won it in my first giveaway. [Usual fine print on this one: US and Canada only, so as not to require me to apply for a loan to ship it. And DON'T FORGET to leave your email address in your comment if you want to be included.]
