I am extremely excited that my first non-Milkweed novel, and my second novel for 2013, hits shelves in less than two weeks! So I’ll probably be talking about Something More Than Night a fair bit over the next few weeks.
I can’t help it. In some ways it’s my favorite book of anything I’ve written, and I’m just plum thrilled to see it finally making its way into the world.
So I was overjoyed when Kirkus included Something More Than Night in its list of the best SFF novels of 2013.
It’s amazing and humbling to see the book listed among such august company, too: Gaiman, Stross, Wolfe, and not to mention fellow New Mexico SFF writer Phillipa Bornikova.
Speaking of Kirkus, I recently chatted with Amy Goldschlager about the new book. A nice summary of our wide-ranging conversation has been posted here.
I’m proud of this book, and I hope like crazy that it finds an audience. December releases are tricky, and I worry about it falling through the cracks at the end of the yearâ€”especially since so many outlets (*cough* Goodreads *cough*) are already assembling their list of 2013 favorites before all the 2013 books have been published. Which, let’s be honest, is a little annoying.
