I’ve been sitting on this news for a while, but now the press release is out and it’s official:
My first novel, Belt Three, will be published by Harper Voyager in summer 2015.
Belt Three is about the alien machines that destroyed the planets and left humans living in fragile cities in the debris; the space pirate who tries to strike back at them; and the grieving identity thief she kidnaps and forces to help her. It features brain implants, mind-controlled spaceships, solar sails, the social consequences of mass reproductive cloning, memory hacking, religion, doomed love affairs, nuclear missiles, a mad computer, robots that shoot laser beams, and the Remembrance of Clouds.
Belt Three was one of fifteen books that Harper Voyager picked up from their open submissions process in October 2012. It will be released initially as an e-book, with plans to follow it with a short-run paperback.
