Into the light

Emilie and the Hollow World

Emilie and the Hollow World, my new YA fantasy coming out in April 2013 from Strange Chemistry Books, is starting to show up for preorder in a few places:

Barnes and Noble, Amazon.con, Amazon.ca

I'll post when I see it show up in more places.

The description is: While running away from home for reasons that are eminently defensible, Emilie's plans to stow away on the steamship Merry Bell and reach her cousin in the big city go awry, landing her on the wrong ship and at the beginning of a fantastic adventure. Taken under the protection of Lady Marlende, Emilie learns that the crew hopes to use the aether currents and an experimental engine, and with the assistance of Lord Engal, journey to the interior of the planet in search of Marlende's missing father. With the ship damaged on arrival, they attempt to traverse the strange lands on their quest. But when evidence points to sabotage and they encounter the treacherous Lord Ivers, along with the strange races of the sea-lands, Emilie has to make some challenging decisions and take daring action if they are ever to reach the surface world again.

Other than that, kind of tired and busy today. One of my cousins has a recurring role on True Blood this season, which I think is kind of awesome, and I'm getting ready for WorldCon in Chicago in a couple of weeks.
