I wrote and sold PLUS ONE as a standalone. What I didn't know then was how much I'd continue to worry about Sol and D'Arcy when I was done, and that Grady Hastings would regularly wake me up at 4 AM, annoyed as heck with me for not letting him finish his work. I often wonder whether I should write a follow-up novel, just to silence him.

P.S. for more of the world of PLUS ONE, there's a free Tor.com short story written in Gigi's voice. Search "Elizabeth Fama" and "Noma Girl" and you'll find it. (Alas, it's a prequel.) (less)

Well, I didn't win an American Library Association award this year, but that doesn't mean I can't host an after-party!

Have I told you that my husband and I are on sabbatical at Stanford this year? We're renting a house with a big ol' yard, and the weather is kind of insanely perfect on the peninsula. All of which means: outdoor ALA par-tay!
