My debut novel just went 3-for-3 in independent publishing awards! Blue Karma made finalist in the Shelf Unbound indie book competition. Thousands of authors submitted their novels (so I’m told) so top six is a terrific accomplishment. Sarah (@sarahplusbook), the dystopian editor for Shelf Unbound, reviewed Blue Karma this summer and encouraged me to submit it. Thanks, Sarah: here’s further proof that authors need to listen to their readers!
Seeing my book cover (and my face) in a magazine, even a digital one, is surreal. Check out the December/January issue of Shelf Unbound to read my interview. I discuss why I write science fiction, how I developed the main characters in Blue Karma, and dish on The Darksider. There’s even a short excerpt from Blue Karma, so if you’re still hesitant about trying the book, here’s a peek! If cli-fi isn’t for you, Shelf Unbound features many other great independent and small-press books, so you’re sure to discover some hidden literary gems for your holiday reading.
