Keep an Eye on That Tregillis Fellow (Before He Steals Your Silverware)

February 27, 2010 at 5:16 pm

The publication date for my debut novel is six weeks out, but I've been very pleasantly surprised, and honored, by some of the buzz generated around Bitter Seeds.

Over at Stomping on Yeti, the venerable stomper of yetis has included me in his list of 25 Authors Worth Watching in 2010 and Beyond.  I'm simply blown away, and more than a little humbled, to see my name listed alongside such incredible writers as Greg van Eekhout, Rachel Swirsky, Leah Bobet, Jack Skillingstead, Theodora Goss, Mary Robinette Kowal, Aliette de Bodard, and Beth Bernobich, just to name a few.  I can only hope that I earn a spot alongside them someday.  But who am I to argue?  He stomps on yetis, people!  And that's not something I want to mess with.

Stomping on Yeti has been following up the original list with in-depth looks at each of the 25 authors.  I was included in the second spotlight, number 2 of 5.

Bitter Seeds also made it into Simply the Best's weekly roundup for February 27, under a book recommendation from Daniel Abraham.  Hooray!

Thanks to Daniel for the world-class pimpage!  You rule.

And, as a reminder, I've posted a list of online retailers where Bitter Seeds can be preordered.

Congratulations! That's great news! Can't wait to read Bitter Seeds! To think I knew you when you were just a humble astrophysicist who just happened to fight intergalactic crime and injustice in his spare time on weekends. Any way you can come out to Jersey for abook signing? I promise you some great homemade Italian food if you do. Congratulations my friend!

Thanks, Mark! Wow, to think that my very own website received a visit from the Don himself... I expect to be out in Jersey in mid-May for a workshop as part of my day job. I hope to see you and Mary and Mark Falzini while I'm out there.
