Announcement and Contest

The Announcement
It's official: my robot overlords have picked up book three in my Collector series! THE BIG REAP is set to see the light of day sometime in 2013, following this February's DEAD HARVEST and September 2012's THE WRONG GOODBYE.

How psyched am I? Freakin' very. For one, THE BIG REAP takes a turn both epic and unexpected, and I'm pretty sure it's gonna rock. For two, you just know the cover will be mind-blowing. (Yeah, that's right: I mostly made this deal so's I could get me yet another kick-ass pulp cover. If I've got to keep cranking out crazy fantasy-noir adventure novels to get 'em, then so be it.)

The Contest
To celebrate today's announcement, I think I'll give away free stuff. What free stuff, you ask? How about three DEAD HARVEST prize packs, featuring a signed copy of DEAD HARVEST (The Collector Book One), as well as bookmarks, fridge magnets, custom DEAD HARVEST M&Ms, and whatever other crazy-ass DEAD HARVEST swa…

In Which the Author is Over the Moon...

Locus Magazine, who've won like eleventy bagillion Hugo Awards.

Locus Magazine, in whose pages a K.W. Jeter coined the term "steampunk," way back in April of '87.

Locus Magazine, which no less a luminary than Arthur C. Clarke declared "the only periodical I read from cover to cover."

Locus Magazine knows that I exist. What's more, they actually liked my book.

There's no online edition, so I can't provide an evidentiary link, but here's a snippet of what they (or, rather, Carolyn Cushman) had to say:

"The Collector series gets off to a strong start with this noir urban fantasy, a very promising first novel."

You hear that? I'm "very promising." (Or, okay, my novel is. Shut up and let me have this.)
