For the past few months I’ve been hunkered down writing my next novel. I can’t say I love first drafting, but I can say I’ve made progress. Part of that progress was made on a writing retreat I went on in Hawaii (yes!) with my wonderful friends Cindy Pon and Kate Elliott (who hosted us). Here we are, along with Cindy’s giant hat:
Meanwhile, things continued to happen, so I have things to tell you.
Firstly: Tremontaine Season 1 will be published by Saga Press in a print omnibus edition in spring 2017. This means you’ll get all of season 1, which wrapped back in January, collected in a paper edition. I am a fan of both ebooks and paper books, so this is really exciting!
Secondly: In honor of the National Book Foundation and Lambda Literary’s new reading program, BookUp LGBTQ, I (and several other authors) shared the Books I Wish I’d Read as an LGBTQ Teenager with LitHub. If you know me you probably won’t be surprised by the books I picked, but I’m sure you’ll find some great recommendations from the other authors, many of which (and whom) are new to me as well.
Thirdly: I am thrilled to share the news that I will be a guest at GeekyCon this July in Orlando, Florida, along with a whole bunch of awesome and awesomely diverse authors! I loved my experience at GeekyCon (then LeakyCon) in 2014, and I can’t wait to go back.
Finally: Much of the progress I made on my novel is due to the fact that I took a social media break for over a month. Wow, there’s a lot more time in the day when I’m not on twitter! And because of that, I’ve decided to continue to not be on twitter until I finish this book. I am on instagram though, and I also just answered some long-overdue asks on tumblr. So if you want to see random pics of my life and/or ask me something, feel free to check me out in those corners of the internet.
