Tour Tour Tour!!

Gamechanger will be released on Tuesday, September 17th and to kick off the celebration I will be reading at Chiseries on September 18th, at the Round Venue at 8pm. Bakka Phoenix Books will be there with copies for sale, and I won’t be the only one reading: Mugabi Byenkya, Victoria Dalpe, and Halli Villegas will be there too!

Next, on September 22nd, Amal El Mohtar and I will be at Word on the Street’s Across the Universe Stage, giving a panel on Alternate Futures, hosted by Leah Bobet.

The official Toronto Gamechanger Launch will be at Bakka-Phoenix Books, 84 Harbord Street on October 5th, 3pm.

Meanwhile, On October 18th to 20th, I’ll be appearing at CanCon in Ottawa, along with so many other amazing writers!

Last for the moment, and certainly not least, my Vancouver B.C. launch will be at Massy Books at 229 East Georgia Street, at 7pm on November 5th.

You are all welcome at very single one of the events–I would love to see and meet you. Meanwhile, there is a week to go before the actual book birthday, which means there’s still time to preorder!

Gamechanger Release in Two Weeks!

With two weeks to go to the release of my book, it’s getting pretty damned excited around here.

Not at all by chance, I’ve been interviewed about the book, hopetopia, Internet shame culture and potential good future outcomes for human society at Clarkesworld by Arley Sorg. Here’s a snippet and a link:

“A century from now, in my world, compassionate, cool people are living smart, productive lives in an ecosphere they worked incredibly hard to preserve.”

The Toronto launch for Gamechanger will be on October 5th at 3pm, at Bakka-Phoenix Books. There will be a reading, signing, jokes, desserts, and fun. I hope I’ll see you there!

I’ll cut to the chase. Check out this beautiful beautiful cover, by Stephan Martiniere, for Gamechanger.

Stunning, right? It captures exactly what I want for this fictional future—a world still recognizably the one we’re living in now, and yet changed, mostly (though not all) for the better.

(The Gamechanger outcome is actually what I want for our actual future, as far as that goes.)

Cover reveals often happen when a book becomes available for pre-order, and mine is! Powells and iTunes don’t have pages yet, but for those of you who dollar-vote at any of the following retailers, here are links. .

Things have been very exciting around the Lex Cave these days. Some of you may have heard that “Freezing Rain, a Chance of Falling” is a finalist for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, hobnobbing with SF stars like Kelly Robson and Annalee Newitz. Naturally, I’m over the moon!

But rather than staying up there, I’m gonna come down to earth and stare at this beautiful cover some more. I’ll talk more about the Sturgeon, and the novella, and many other things, soon!
