I’ll be at Worldcon 2016 in Kansas City! You can catch me reading or speaking on panels. I’m happy to say hello.
If you combine my name with Max Gladstone’s, you get Sex Dickinstone. That is a fact and no one may deny it.
Sometimes I am moved by a particular force to write things on Max’s Facebook wall. No pharmaceuticals have been involved.
If you read them all for me, I will tell you the chapter titles of a secret project I’ve been working on between bursts of Baru 2! All will be enriched.
I’ve been so busy working on my next book I forgot to do this!
Here are the works I published in 2015. I think they all turned out quite well.
My book is out! The reviews are shining! Baru Cormorant is loosed upon the world. God help us all, in particular our account-books.
Let’s check out some of the reviews, interviews, and columns that’ve covered the book.
“Viciously original, beautifully written, and just heart-rending over and over again.”
There’s a monster coming. An empire with the answers to everything. It wants to conquer your home, your parents, and you.
You are seven years old. You are armed with your wits. No other weapon can be trusted.
Here is your solution: conquer the empire from the inside. Rule the world. Fix the course of history.
I’m overjoyed to report that Tor Books will publish my first three novels. Look for my debut, The Traitor Baru Cormorant, in Fall 2015.
I’m enormously grateful to my agent, Jennifer Jackson; to Marco Palmieri at Tor; to Sarah Brand, who was sitting in the room at Alpha 2011 when Baru came into my head and who I’m convinced talked me into writing it; to Rachel Sobel and all my other wonderful first readers; and to Jenny and Stefan, for helping get me out of one place and into this one.
I’m overjoyed to report that I’ve signed with Jennifer Jackson at the Donald Maass Literary Agency to represent The Traitor Baru Cormorant and my future long-form work.
I’ll have some big news on The Traitor Baru Cormorant in the next couple weeks – not the last hurdle, but certainly not the smallest.
On the full-time front, I’ve accepted an offer from Bungie Studios in Seattle to work as a writer. I’ve been a fan of Bungie’s storytelling since I discovered Marathon Infinity, and I’m really excited to tackle this new challenge.
I’m trying to write this damn story for an opportunity I don’t want to miss and it’s killing me. I think I’ve cut at least ten words for every word I’ve kept. I’m literally dying here. I’ve died. I’m dead.
