Two days ago saw the launch of Six Wakes and Bookburners, the projects I spent most of last year on. It was weird coincidence that they launched the same day. But the reviews for both are both really good, and I’m thrilled at the response. And thanks to everyone who posted a review online, anywhere! Spreading the word is HUGE help.
I got to do the John Scalzi Big Idea on Tuesday! And here are some quotes from reviews for Six Wakes!
“A taut, nerve-tingling murder mystery with a deeply human heart.”— NPR Books“An interstellar page-turner with an innovative twist on cloning tropes.”— B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog“A great book with so much going for it: clever structure, wonderful characters,and a fiendishly clever puzzle that you’ll roll over in your mindfor months after you close the covers.”— Boing Boing“[The] coolest murder mystery you’ll read.”— bestselling author Chuck Wendig
Unfortunately I won’t be doing my bookstore event in Greenville, SC tonight. We had to reschedule. We’re still hammering out when we will be doing it but it looks tentatively like February 21 will be the new date. And I’m working on a local event in March at Flyleaf books, will post when that gets confirmed.
I’m completely knackered, as the Brits say, from book launches and turning in the first draft of I Should Be Writing, the book. (Yeah, that was yesterday, whoo hoo book done! Now body must zzzzz…) But now that the books are out and the other book is turned in, I can focus more on my podcasts and my dear Patreon supporters.
OH, and thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway! All slots are filled!
