Normally I tease the theme, ask you to sign up and wait for the surprise book in your inbox. But this month I think it’s important to be decisive and vocal, wasting no time.

Hello World is science fiction that verges on thriller because I wanted to see an asexual protagonist be the action hero, show how important a single voice can be to bring about change.

You can read the full blurb or buy a paperback here, otherwise drop your email here to get the free ebook in your inbox on June 26th.

For librarians, or the accessibility of those who need a paperback version but cannot afford it or instead would like to donate to a BLM group, I have two copies I can send to fellow US addresses. Send me a message here with your full address to claim one.

Please note because of lack of publisher support, the book has an old name on it until our rights return to us in February. The future sequel will have the correct names of Rose Sinclair and Alexandra Tauber.

And to quote the book remember:
Binaries can be smashed, and systems can be subverted.

Press Start Cover Reveal!

It’s here! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
This beautiful leap day I get to show off our newest book cover!!

Press Start Front Cover

It’s so cute! We wanted it to really showcase the story’s inspiration of Pokemon Go and other party games. The map is actually based on a cool area around where John lives. If you need a break from everything because the world sure is wild this year, you’re going to love this soft playful story.

I can also officially announce the release day of May 5th! The paperback and ebook version will have an exclusive chapter. Until then, be sure to add it on Goodreads!

Here’s the blurb if you want to learn more:

A new app has turned the whole world into an augmented playground. By reinventing up retro party games, HoloHeroes makes sure it has something for every player. However, Loren worries she’s been missing out. The death of her father and a move across the country makes it feel as though she has to start life over. As a sweet sixteen gift, Loren’s given Ghost Glasses, allowing her to be her own HoloHero. Local meetups serve as a jumping-off point to make new friends, find herself, and win cash prizes. But what started as casual fun turns into an accidental rivalry with a veteran champion of the game and a race towards the national stage.

Pandamoon Publishing Acquires Hello World!

December 12th, 2012 That’s when I first wrote anything for Scott. And from the moment I named Hello World I was in love and from the second Scott had dialogue I was in love with him. So without burying the lead, let me tell you more about Hello World.

Scott’s skills as a surveillance expert come in pretty handy when he’s breaking down firewalls. But hacktivism isn’t enough; he’s going after the holy grail—UltSyn’s Human Information Drives. While plenty of hackers are trying to save the world these days, all Scott wants is to find his sister.

His obsession with finding her leads him halfway around the world. But as Scott digs deeper into restricted databases, he discovers that those who enlist with UltSyn get far more than they bargained for. Plunged into a world of human trafficking and corporate espionage, Scott is determined to find his sister, no matter the cost. But when the information reveals the people closest to him have been working for UltSyn all along, he has to find her—before UltSyn finds him.

I didn’t want to write this post until this moment. And now I’m sitting in the moment and all I can think is wow. Getting a book deal is kind-of like telling news on twitter, or waiting for your keurig to heat up the water. It’s an act that involves you, but is out of your control. And while with a much smaller waiting period you don’t know exactly when that little “Ready” message will display or that tweet will be liked.

I guess in a rambling way I’m saying submitting your book for publication is about hope. You hope you get creamer to coffee mix right, you hope everyone is excited at your news, you hope that everyone loves this creation as much as you do. None of those things are directly in your control, but you hope.

More exactly, it’s about collecting those pieces of hope like stringing popcorn. Each action adds to the wish. Every song, every tweet, every line of text you touch.

I love Hello World, and I hope you end up loving it too.
