Today’s the Day!

Posted on by Grace

Finally, the release date for Firmament: Reversal Zone! It is now available on Kindle, and I’m making the last few tweaks to the paperback, so it should be up in a few days.

In the meantime, head on over to Bookish Orchestrations for the blog tour kickoff, which includes three giveaways–one for each of the three previous books!

I think this is my favorite in the series, so far–I’m so excited to share it with all of you!

The past few days, Radialloy and Machiavellian … Keep reading

“I’m going to write about her life.”

Posted on by Grace

I’m probably the only person who reads a book and tries to imagine a story behind the story.  Then again, maybe not.  I remember reading Laurie R. King’s The Beekeeper’s Apprentice and smiling with delight over her prologue, which explained how the story was really true, and how the author had come to know about it.  How a mysterious box was delivered on her doorstep with certain unexplained items and a number of manuscripts.
