If you follow me on twitter, where I seem to do most of my talking, you might be aware that I recently sold my very first solo novella to Riptide Publishing. In Discretion is set in the Ylendrian Empire, in a place that might be familiar to people who read The Slipstream Con- Station 43.
It’s a charming tale of biological disaster, unfinished business, and that awkward moment when you run into your ex, all during a mysterious outbreak on a space station at the ass-end of the ‘verse. The cover is coming soon (COME TO ME, PRETTY), and it will be released on December 30, 2013.
Which segues nicely into the next point of order- Peripheral People. The sharp-eyed amongst you may have noticed at one point that the next Ylendrian novel, Peripheral People, was originally listed with an August 2013 release date. Counting on my fingers, even I can clearly arrive at the conclusion that August has been and gone, and yet… no Peripheral.
The strangest part of the writing business is how your books sort of disappear into a void at some point. Either there’s nothing happening with them, or, in many cases, there’s something incredibly exciting happening with them, and you can’t talk about it. (Insert your own Fight Club joke, please.) That’s very much the case with Peripheral People. The book is sold, and will be released in 2014, but beyond that we really can’t say anything else yet. Except that what’s going on with it, lost in that weird black hole of publishing, is pretty phenomenal.
Rest assured, we’ve got lots of work coming down the pike. In fact, I think Michelle is going to be very busy in a couple weeks, introducing you to some new characters of hers, in a little town called– you know, I think I’ll wait and let her tell you.
Peace, love, and endless edits,
