There hasn’t been a whole lot of good news to report since, erm…November 8th. But here’s a little something I just found out about today: Banished Sons of Poseidon garnered an honorable mention at the 2016 Rainbow Books Awards. And it’s still in the running to win or earn a runner’s up spot in the Young Adult category. Those winners will be announced in December.
Here’s the link to Banished Sons’ honorable mention.
Meanwhile, between the day job and being active with the movement to #resist the incoming presidential administration, I’ve been slowly working on the manuscript for the second book in the Lost Histories series, a follow up to The City of Seven Gods. This is always a tough time of year to eke out writing time, but I’m getting it in here and there. I also have a more substantive blog post planned in the upcoming weeks on the subject of #ownvoices in gay fantasy.
Hey! If you haven’t had a chance to pick up Banished Sons of Poseidon, why not give it a try? It picks up on the story of what happened to Atlantis, from a gay teen’s perspective, and I’ve heard from a lot of readers that it works just fine as a standalone. Though you could always start with The Seventh Pleiade too. 🙂
Might I suggest you make your purchase at the publisher’s webstore, which matches other retailers’ pricing and offers discounting when you spend $25 or more?
Wishing all of my American friends a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving holiday!
