Howdy. Thanks for checking in. I find myself in a state of shock that summer is already winding down. Time to get serious about the revisions on my next book, which I will say more about at another time. In the meantime, BLACK MOON is the book that refuses to wan. Here's some news:
The US paperback came out in winter (Jan 20) and is currently available just about everywhere. The UK paperback will be released in fall. It comes with one more really cool cover (see it here). Some interesting offerings and promotions are in the works, so check in this fall for details.
I failed to note here that the book received some great attention when, this spring, it was longlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for a debut novel. It was a great honor to be acknowledged with nine other fantastic books. While it didn't make it to the shortlist, it was great to know that the judges at PEN gave it a close reading and found it worthy of recognition.
For some backstory on the book and a bit about my citric past, please check out this recent piece by columnist David Allen that appeared in my hometown newspaper, the Daily Bulletin.
