" … success is merely interesting, while failure is fascinating. That’s because it often means that we took a risk or the rest of the world wasn’t ready for an idea. Or maybe it’s just that we all love a good survivor tale.”
In addition to OTHERBOUND, I’m most looking forward to Lindsey Lane’s EVIDENCE OF THINGS UNSEEN and Joshua McCune’s TALKER 25. Go YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy! 2014 looks like a very good year. =D
Last night, I returned home to find a box of ARCs for my 2014 debut novel OTHERBOUND. YA fantasy! Multiple worlds! Trauma! Queer princesses! Horrific curses!
To celebrate, here’s the first ever giveaway for a signed ARC, for a chance to read the book way ahead of time. Like, you might read it before I even reveal my final cover—the one above is just a placeholder. Sound good?
Your mission: reblog this post and tell the world about a 2014 YA release you’re particularly excited about. Source doesn’t matter! Sequel, debut—anything goes! Just share the love. Enter by November 26th. Further contest fine print here.
We’re at the American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene's annual meeting in Washington, D.C., this week. We're learning a lot about mosquito-borne illnesses, like dengue and Chikungunya fever.
But we thought this sign in the conference hallway summed up research and science very well. Baby steps. Always baby steps.
