Secret Message Generator #10: CLOUDBOUND is TOMORROW! Where I'll be this month | Lightspeed | Online Fran Finder

Status update ..
  • Last Monday I turned in the third book in the Bone Universe to my editor at Tor - Holy cow, I can't believe this is the start of the end! I feel happy and sad and probably that's a little bit because I need to sleep, but I'm really excited to get this book in your hands next year. The third book is tentatively titled (newsletter-only info) HORIZON. I don't know if the title will stick, but I like it for now!
  • The rest of my status is basically eeeeeeeek CLOUDBOUND and will probably remain that way for a while - I've got updates on events below - posted with hopes I get to see you - wave at me online too!
  • My Shimmer story, "Only Their Shining Beauty Was Left" has been getting some great love from reviewers & commenters - like it? Drop me a line - would love to hear what you think. Also, share around if you like - it's free!
  • Like winning free stuff? For those of you who can’t make the launch, I’m raffling off at one mixed bag containing some of the above items (US only). I’ll also hope to see you elsewhere on the journey!  HOW TO ENTER: post a READ / SPOTTED in the WILDe photo on twitter, Instagram, or Facebook within the first week of launch (Sept. 27- Oct 1) of you reading CLOUDBOUND, with the hashtag #CLOUDBOUND (and tag me). 
  • "A Moment of Gravity, Circumscribed," one of the first stories in the Bone Universe to see daylight will be reprinted for the first time online in Lightspeed Magazine's October issue!
(This is a shorter, cloud-filled newsletter, but longer ones will return shortly!)

CLOUDBOUND comes out September 27, so if you can, ask after it at your library, order, review, and hit it up on Goodreads!

Amazon | Barnes & NobleIndieBound | Powell’s | Main Point Books | Mysterious Galaxy

(also: UPDRAFT came out in paperback, Sept. 13! - I had a great time signing at Baltimore Book Festival, where the Ivy Bookstore sold out! - thank you for all the reviews! We're closing on 100 on Amazon - that's fantastic!)

This is an intermittent & non-spammy newsletter for subscribers. My goal is to condense a whole lot of info into a small space. How did I do? What would you like to see more of?
