Today is the day!
Seven years after I first wrote it, today is the day Atrophy officially becomes a published book. Expecting happy dances, flowing champagne and fireworks? Well, yeah, it would be nice, but the day rolled around and is quietly passing while I wrap Christmas presents for my kids between doing totally not glamorous things like update my website.
Seriously, though, while I'm so happy and grateful that Entangled gave this book a home, teamed me with a wonderful editor and now all my daydreams about Atrophy being an actual real story that people I've never met before read and (hopefully) love as much as I do, compared to the energy, levels of organization and enthusiasm I had about Damage Control and Escape Velocity, this release day so far has been a much more relaxing experience. Maybe its because this is the third release this year, so I've kind of got the whole process (mostly) firgured out.
But actually, I think it has more to do with the fact that I am totally going into holiday mode. Usually, in years past, I take the entire month of December off from my writing so I can enjoy shopping, spending time with my kids and the first wonderful month of Summer here in Australia.
So my mind is telling me its time to switch off, even though I've had this book out today, have edits to do and another book to finish writing.
But its hard to keep my butt on the chair in front of the computer when the weather is warm, there are presents to be wrapped beneath my Christmas tree, ripe fruit and veggies to be picked from my garden and fun things to do with the kids.
This blog post was my last official duty for the day, so now I'm off to do some of the above mentioned activities.
Click some of the links below if you want to find out more about Atrophy, but just quietly, get out and enjoy December -- whether you're in the northern hemisphere enjoying the holidays by a roaring fire as it rains or snows outside, or you're down here with me in the southern hemisphere and getting ready to hit the beaches or pools. Either way, 2015 is almost over. Its time to enjoy our families, reflect on the year that was and look forward to new beginnings in 2016.
No one on Erebus escapes alive...
years on the prison planet Erebus makes a man long for death. The worst
part for Tannin Everette is that he was framed for murder. He’s innocent. When the ship Imojenna lands
for emergency repairs, Tannin risks everything to escape…only to find
himself face to face with the captain’s undeniably gorgeous sister.
Zahli Sherron isn’t planning on turning Tannin in. In fact, she actually believes
him. Sure, he’s sexy as every kind of sin, but he’s no criminal—so she
hides him. But no one escapes from Erebus and lives to tell about it.
With every day that passes, Zahli further risks the lives of the entire
crew…even as she falls in love with a man she can never have for
