ApolloCon and More

I went to ApolloCon this weekend, and generally had a good time, except that I had an allergic reaction Friday night and it kind of put a damper on the weekend for me. I didn't really feel like going out in the evening so missed the parties and other events. I did have some great panels, especially the one on Archetypes, Stereotypes, and Caricatures on Saturday, and the one on SF/F transportation on Sunday.

I'm back now, and looking at a very busy week. The big thing is I need to finish writing Emilie and the Sky World, the sequel to Emilie and the Hollow World.


Excellent news:

* Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch has been optioned for a TV series: Once More Into the Breach


Things going on:

* Part four of The Death of the Necromancer has been posted on Black Gate Magazine.

* This is the last week for the kickstarter for the Knight in the Silk Purse anthology. This is a sequel to Tales of the Emerald Serpent, (Amazon.com, NookBook), and if this kickstarter is successful, I'll have a story in the anthology.


Books/stories I have out now:

* The Siren Depths, the third in the Books of the Raksura, is out in trade paperback, ebook, and audiobook.

* Emilie and the Hollow World, a YA steampunkish fantasy, is out in trade paperback and ebook.

Stuff you can do that helps writers:

People ask about this occasionally so I thought I'd mention it again here.

* if you liked the book and you bought it online, leave a review. On Amazon especially, these reviews and ratings can make a big difference in the system Amazon uses to recommend books.

* tell your friends and rec the book to them if you think they'd enjoy it.

* if you want to read a book in hardcover or ebook at your local library and they don't have it, request it. Some libraries have forms on their front desk or you can do it on their web site. Libraries generally welcome requests like this. (For example, a lot of libraries have The Cloud Roads, but since The Serpent Sea and The Siren Depths weren't sent out for library journal reviews, they don't have them, but will usually get them if you request it.)

I attended both the panels you mentioned, and I enjoyed them immensely. Thanks!

Cool, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed them. :)

I loved Emilie and the Hollow World, I'm so happy there's going to be a sequel!

Yay, thank you! Glad you liked it! :)
