WorldCon 76 is happening this weekend in San Jose, CA, and I’ll be there with books to sell, stickers to give away, and high fives aplenty.
If you’ll be attending, come see me at the Abyssinian Books booth, where Arianna Golden has generously offered me table space.
If you won’t be attending and are curious about my shenanigans there, Instagram is my in-the-moment social media app of choice. (You can follow me here.) I’m sometimes on the Twitters (@jkwak), but I’ve removed it from my phone for the sake of actually getting things done. 🙂
Come see me!
I’ll have a large number of stickers and a limited number of temporary tattoos to give away to people in the know.
You’re now in the know.
Deviant Flux Cover Reveal!
You’ve all been either patiently waiting and patiently bugging me about when the next Durga System book is coming out.
Well, I’m excited to announce that I have a cover for it! It’s super gorgeous, and done by the same cover artist that did Negative Return (Fiona Jayde).
Deviant Flux is another novella in the Durga System universe, and it’s a direct sequel to Starfall.
I’ll be announcing the preorder date soon (it’ll be out this fall).
Set five years after the events of Starfall —
Desperate to find her cousin Mona, Starla Dusai takes to the skies.
It’s been five years since Starla Dusai’s family home was destroyed and her clan of space pirates scattered throughout the Durga System. When she receives a tip that her beloved cousin Mona is alive, she drops everything to find her. But Mona’s caught up in a plot that might just get them both killed — and saving her might just mean giving up the new family Starla has built.
Deviant Flux is coming Fall of 2018.
The Murderbot Diaries
by Martha Wells
(I LOVED this book and just got my husband to read it. He kept laughing out loud last night.)
In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.
But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.
On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid — a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.
But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it’s up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.
