UPDATE: Signing good to go with obvious caveats

UPDATE: Signing good to go with obvious caveats

I was made aware late last night about this notice sent out by the UW President yesterday. The site of the planned far-right rally is only a few blocks from the University Book Store, and obviously I have multiple concerns about both the University’s warning and their handling of the whole situation. I am trying this morning to reach out to the University Book Store for more information and will update as soon as I know more about how this could affect the event. Of course, regardless of any potential changes to the event, please avoid the University of Washington campus today if you feel unsafe.

Again, I will update once I’m able to contact the Book Store staff and obtain more information about the situation.

UPDATE (11:13 AM): I spoke to the Book Store staff and they were able to clarify the security situation. They advised that the store should be far enough away from campus and late enough in the day that it should not be impacted by the planned rally. They also have security staff present who are aware of the security threat on campus. Everything is still in order to proceed with the signing, and they didn’t appear to anticipate any problems at the store.

That said, again, please avoid the University of Washington campus area today if you feel unsafe. On that note, if I arrive and find that the area appears unsafe, I will be in touch with the Book Store again and cancel tonight’s event.

For those still interested, the signing begins at 6:00 PM tonight at:

U District – University Book Store
4326 University Way NE
Seattle, WA 98105

US Book Birthday for Moonshine!

US Book Birthday for Moonshine!

Today’s Moonshine’s US release day! I said I’d have some more words for the second release day, and here they are:

A huge thank you as always to the Angry Robot crew, and various thanks as well to: my agent Laura Zats, Dawn Frederick, Paul Simpson, Dan Holloway, John Coulthart, Idris Grey, Beth Phelan, AC Wise, JS Fields, Abbey Gaterud, Kathi Berens, my fellow Oolies, Stacie, Audry, Eli, Flynn, and my family. I’m sure I’m glossing over some folks who deserve thanks but the book has acknowledgements already, so you’ll have to buy it if you want the full list, I guess.

Oh, and thank you again to Bruce Cordell for helping my author copies get to my house!

I started working on Moonshine as a rough concept waaaay back in high school, and picked it back up when I (like Daisy) was shortly out of college and trying to get my feet under me so I could survive the whole capitalism thing. It went through many rounds of editing and a very slow submission process (during which I did more editing!) before I ever even connected with Angry Robot through #DVPit. The publishing process is never a short one, and I definitely took my sweet time with this one, so needless to say it’s very satisfying to have it in actual, for-reals book form and out in the world. The support and reactions I’ve gotten so far have been wonderful, and it really is a dream come true to have my debut novel sitting on my own bookshelf.

And don’t think I’m getting through this without more link round-ups:

Anyway, now that you can buy Moonshine, the time has come to turn all those pre-order links into regular purchase links:

Here Comes Another Moonshine Round-up!

Here Comes Another Moonshine Round-up!

Sorry for the low fanfare here for yesterday’s UK release of Moonshine. I did not have the time I thought I had to pull together something a little flashier. I have something more extensive planned for the US release on Tuesday, provided I don’t spend the whole weekend playing Dissidia. (I will, but I can also get a slightly longer post thrown together, regardless.) Until then, wow, more stuff:

Whew, what a week! I also wanted to remind you all that I have a content warning list for Moonshine here on my site, if there’s any type of content you’d like a head’s up about before reading the book. The list is incomplete, of course, but I tried to note the stuff that particularly stood out.

Okay, I think that’s all I’ve got for this very moment! Now I’m off to catch up on some very important work (which is playing more Dissidia).

Today’s the big day for Moonshine’s UK paperback and ebook release! Thanks to all who pre-ordered! For everyone else, you can now grab Moonshine at your preferred ebook retailer or in bookstores if you live in the UK.

Some more cool Moonshine stuff happening:

And here’s the usual reminder that A) I will be at University Bookstore in Seattle on February 10 at 6:00 PM, and B) there’s still a bit of time to pre-order Moonshine if you haven’t already:

Moonshine Events and Interviews

Some updates for this fine, rainy day (at least where I’m at). We’re getting oh-so close the release of Moonshine on February 1 (ebook and UK paperback) and February 6 (US paperback), and I’ve got some fun happenings happening in light of that:

And more along the way! In the meantime, have another shameless pre-order plug:

Content Warnings for Moonshine Now Live (sort of)

Content Warnings for Moonshine Now Live (sort of)

I feel like I may be missing a few obvious points, but I didn’t want to delay the content warning list for Moonshine much longer, so I’ve added what I have so far to my Content Warnings page, where you can also still find information about A Study of Fiber and Demons. As usual, if anyone is worried about potential content not listed on the content warning page, I’m always happen to clarify via Twitter or my contact page.

In the meantime, while it looks like Moonshine is no longer available on NetGalley for reviewers, there’s still some time to pre-order, sooooo, here come the links!

Coming Soon: Content Warnings for Moonshine

Coming Soon: Content Warnings for Moonshine

Happiest and newest of years! Now, Moonshine is less than a month to publication, so I don’t need to tell you that you can still pre-order Moonshine or (for reviewers) request the digital ARC on NetGalley, right? No, of course not. You already know that, because you’re smart and well-informed.

What might be new information is that I’m currently working on writing up a list of content warnings for Moonshine. I’m hoping to get it posted by next week, but this kind of thing does take a while to thoroughly assemble (and Moonshine is about twice as long as A Study of Fiber and Demons, and that one took me quite a bit of time as it was). If you’re a reviewer or a reader just eager to know what to expect before you get your hands on it on release day, and you need particular warnings before then, please feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or via my shiny new contact form here on the site. I’m happy to spoil things (privately) for the sake of letting folks make the decisions they need to about approaching my books. I can also add warnings to the list after it’s posted, as I’m sure there will be elements in need of warning that I didn’t consider the first time around and, obviously, I can’t account for everything with this kind of thing.

In the meantime, I’ve also added an Upcoming Events page! (I tried adding a proper calendar, but WordPress outsmarted me on that one, *shake fist*). Keep an eye there for, well, upcoming events. There will be more added soon.

A Festive Winter Update

A Festive Winter Update

It’s actually not festive at all, only some updates and reminders! Let’s just get right into it!

There will be more updates soon–I’ve been busy with grad school the past few weeks, but I’m through finals now. Over December I’ll have a lot more time to throw together some more fun updates, but for now, I wanted to keep everyone up to date on the basics.
