Noumenon Infinity

Hello, all!  I hope 2018 is treating you well so far (even though it sure looks like it’s set to be another whopper of a year).

For those of you who’ve been asking about the sequel to Noumenon, I have some fantastic news!  Noumenon Infinity is now available for preorder!  It’s scheduled for release August 14th, and I hope you’re as excited to see what’s next for Convoy Seven as I am to share their continuing journey with you!

You can order it now at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or wherever books are sold!

(Spoilers below for the first book!)

 

NouemenonInfinity_revised small

Generations ago, Convoy Seven and I.C.C. left Earth on a mission that would take them far beyond the solar system. Launched by the Planet United Consortium, a global group formed to pursue cooperative Earth-wide interests in deep space, nine ships headed into the unknown to explore a distant star called LQ Pyx.

Eons later, the convoy has returned to LQ Pyx to begin work on the Web, the alien megastructure that covers the star. Is it a Dyson Sphere, designed to power a civilization as everyone believes—or something far more sinister?

Meanwhile, Planet United’s littlest convoy, long thought to be lost, reemerges in a different sector of deep space. What they discover holds the answers to unlocking the Web’s greater purpose.

Each convoy possesses a piece of the Web’s puzzle . . . but they may not be able to bring those pieces together and uncover the structure’s true nature before it’s too late.

Happy reading!

Goodbye 2017! Hello Books of 2018!

Noumenon best of quotes

Hello all!  It’s been a great year writing-wise for me!

First off, I’m excited to announce that I’ve sold a flash story, “Discard the Sun for It has Failed Us” to Uncanny Magazine!  It’s my first time in Uncanny, and “Discard the Sun” couldn’t have found a better home.

In 2017 I sold a few short stories, wrote lots of new words, and turned in the edits for Noumenon: Infinity (scheduled for release in August 2018!).  But the biggest writing event for me, by far, was the release of my debut novel, Noumenon.  I am so pleased with its reception, and am very honored that so many people have connected with it.

Noumenon has made three major best-of lists:

Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi Fantasy blog’s

Kirkus Reviews’

Publishers Weekly’s

Which, according to this Kirkus article, makes it one of the best of the best sci-fi books of the year.  I’m happy to see my little sci-fi novel touch so many people, and I want to thank everyone who has worked on it, read it, reviewed it, and recommended it!  It would be just another manuscript on my hard drive without all of you.

It was also a great year for me reading-wise. I have read some fantastic books this year. Here are some of my favorites:

The Prey of Gods by Nicky Drayden

An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard

Binti: Home by Nnedi Okorafor

Breath of Earth by Beth Cato (Note: this book was published in 2016. Its sequel, Call of Fire, came out in 2017.)

 

My to-be-read pile once again grew faster than my read pile, but I’m looking forward to reading these books soon:

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada

The Genius Plague by David Walton

Under the Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng

Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

Autonomous by Annalee Newitz

 

Hope you all found something amazing to read this year; here’s wishing you more happy reading in 2018!  And remember, if you like a book, leave a review or tell a friend!  It’s the best gift you can give an author, after buying their book.  🙂
