Hey, everybody.

First of all, sorry about my recent absence from the blogging world. Don’t worry, I have a good reason. Well … three reasons, to be precise.

First up? I moved. We’re still in glorious New Hampshire, but we’ve made the jump from suburban living to the rural woods, and are loving every minute of it.

Secondly, the biggest news: we’re having a baby! This little present will be arriving very soon, and I’m more excited than could possibly be put into words (even though, y’know, words are what I do). This is the main reason I haven’t checked in with you guys on here for a while, and from what I hear, I can say goodbye to sleeping at night. Just thinking about it now, the joyous emotions feel so vivid, the happiness so deep, and the surreal nature of knowing that this new person will be joining the world soon is so fascinating to think about.  Anyhow, onward to the future!

Now, third: if you’ve been wondering about my next project after Intraterrestrial, wonder no more! I’m thrilled to announce that I have once again contracted with Red Adept Publishing to produce my next novel, a book titled … ah, that’d be telling, right?

Okay, here’s what I will say: this novel is radically different from anything I’ve done before. Yes, it’s science fiction. Yes, as with Intraterrestrial and Pale Highway, the story tackles contemporary real world issues through a speculative lens, but this time, healthcare isn’t the focus. That’s because, as a writer, I feel it’s important to always challenge yourself: to venture into territory that’s wild, scary, and out of your comfort zone. I’ve been working on this book for years, investing perhaps the most I’ve ever invested into any work, and it’s amazing to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

But hey, you know. Early days. From contract to print, there are many steps ahead, so don’t expect to see this new book hit shelves until probably sometime in 2020. In the meantime, watch this space for updates!

  1. Congratulations on the pending arrival of a new little alien (just kidding-your life is going to be so different-but in a great way). And congrats on the move and new book. I suspect living in a more rural area will be super inspirational for future work.

  2. Congratulations!! Parenting is an awesome adventure for sure!! One of the greatest I’ll ever have for sure! I can’t wait to read your next novel! Not sure if you saw but I reviewed The Cage Legacy not too long ago and it’s another 5-star! Best wishes! =)

    • Thanks so much, it’s definitely an adventure I’m thrilled to be embarking on! I missed your Cage Legacy review until now: I just gave it a read, and I’m psyched to hear you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for your support, and I’ll do my best to make sure it isn’t TOO long before this next one comes out, haha. Been working on this one for years, so it’s absolutely amazing to see the finish line coming up so soon. Cheers!

  3. That’s great news, congratulations for all three, although I am not sure if the book or the baby is the best news here! The nights are terrible, I can confirm this but the odd time one isn’t bad. I’m excited for more news on the book as well, as and when it arrives.
