Greetings, readers! Here’s the deal: my new book, the sci-fi, dystopian adventure Blood Zero Sky is coming out in just THREE DAYS, on October first.


Publisher’s Weekly called it: “… a Brave New World with a consumerist edge.”


I’m very excited to share this one with the world, and as a result I’ve scheduled more book tour appearance dates than ever before. Please scan the list below, find the location nearest you, mark your calendar, and come out to see me and get your signed copy. No appearances near you? That’s okay, you can order / pre-order copies at the link above, or check my website, as more tour dates are added for 2013. Thank you in advance for supporting my work, and for making the debut of Blood Zero Sky my most successful book launch so far.
