This is the last book of my trilogy, the first three novels I ever wrote. I'm not sure how this makes me feel. On the one hand PW gave it, Chimera, a star and this is fantastic but on the other hand it's over and my next work of science fiction is yet to begin. Whoever you are at PW - the reviewers of Germline, Exogene, and Chimera - thank you for all the work you've done. And thanks to Rose Fox for making sure my books wound up in good hands.

My local paper interviews me about Germline, Exogene, Chimera, writing, and oh yeah: DragonCon!
By the way: many thanks to the ultra famous Bill Fawcett
for getting me invited in the first place.

COme on - get in on the action you have nothing to lose! And if you enter the contest but lose, all you have to do is buy Chimera and send it to me; I'll sign it and send it back! Everybody wins. Enter the Goodreads Chimera contest here.


BTW - this fan is too young to enter, but look at the excitement on her face at finding Chimera in the wild (B&N)!!!

I need to come here more often. In case you missed it, there's a link below to what I've been doing. This week, my agent begins sending out my most recent book (a YA mainstream novel) to publishers, so let's hope it sells! :)

But only for those of you who speak Polish. In July, 2014, Fabryka Slow, Poland, is releasing the first international translation of any of my books; they're putting out a new edition of Germline!! Exogene and Chimera to follow soon after... http://paranormalbooks.pl/2014/05/21/...

I'm involved with a new series on YouTube called Anecdote, where we're putting together 5-15 minute videos about writing advice, experiences from being an author, interviews, etc. Check out episode one either here (see my profile I think?) or on YouTube.

Everyone welcome my new assistant, Leonard McTear (neighborhood tech genius, kid, and massive underachiever), who will be doing the text and graphics for episode 2 of Anecdote. We'll see how he does; he tells me episode 2 is already through it's first edits. NEW EPISODES EVERY MONDAY!!! Here's episode one (again - bear with me) in case you missed it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qe7yf...
