Thief of Hope is a finalist for the 2012 Compton Crook Award! It’s awarded at Balticon by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society to the best first novel in fantasy, science fiction, or horror. It’s such an honor to have made it to the final round. I’ll be a participant at Balticon this year. It will be my first con. I’m not really sure what to expect, but it will be fun. I’ll post more info on panels and times once I have it. You don’t really want to fight traffic and go to the beach on Memorial Day weekend, do you? Come to Balticon instead!
And for those who are eagerly awaiting the second book, yes, I’m working hard on it. I’m also working on a prequel for CMP’s new line of ebook novellas, Little Moons. With any luck I’ll get that finished soon!
