Hi Ruth! So glad you're enjoying the book!

In brief, Max wrote all of Red and I wrote all of Blue.

At medium length, we described the process in depth here: http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/el-mo...

At longest length, we described the process here: https://vector-bsfa.com/2020/03/11/th...

& this is super short notice, but Max and I are going to be in conversation this evening (8PM EST) about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpG0L...

Thanks so much for reading!

Best,

The only stuff we have planned for the same universe at the moment is a TV show (it's very early days -- the book got optioned, we got hired to write the screenplay, we did that, next steps are pending) -- but as for conceptualizing it, I think we had the flavour, the project, the general sense of it before we had any of its particulars. We've written about the process in a few places if you're interested! This one's the longest / most in-depth, I think: https://vector-bsfa.com/2020/03/11/th...(less)

I blurbed this book! Here is my blurb.

Firebreak is a simmering scream, a pot bucking on a stove after all the water's boiled away. This is a fight song in praise of fierce friendship and the strength it gives us to endure.

Quotes by Amal El-Mohtar  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I love you. I love you. I love you. I'll write it in waves. In skies. In my heart. You'll never see, but you will know. I'll be all the poets, I'll kill them all and take each one's place in turn, and every time love's written in all the strands it will be to you.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This is How You Lose the Time War

“Books are letters in bottles, cast into the waves of time, from one person trying to save the world to another.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This is How You Lose the Time War

“I want to be a body for you. I want to chase you, find you, I want to be eluded and teased and adored; I want to be defeated and victorious—I want you to cut me, sharpen me. I want to drink tea beside you in ten years or a thousand. Flowers grow far away on a planet they’ll call Cephalus, and these flowers bloom once a century, when the living star and its black-hole binary enter conjunction.I want to fix you a bouquet of them, gathered across eight hundred thousand years, so you can draw our whole engagement in a single breath, all the ages we’ve shaped together.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This is How You Lose the Time War
