I Have a Book Deal!

If you haven’t already heard, Permuted Press signed me to a four-book contract this week. The deal includes my grad school thesis novel (Those of My Kind), as well as its two sequels and a standalone new adult zombie novel. I’ve been out of grad school for nine months, so working on writing deadlines again will be a bit of an adjustment. Then again, I do like some structure.

Currently I’m revising the second book, A Place With the Dead. While I wrote the first draft almost twenty years ago, grad school proved that Tristan’s story required more than one book. I always knew I had a series on my hands. I’m making tons of changes, of course, and to be honest, I’m a little afraid to look at the thing, as six years have passed since the last draft. But it’s a good deal more apocalyptic than ToMK, and the third book (Dusk of Hope) takes that even further, so I think I’ll fit right in at Permuted Press.

No release dates yet, of course, but I’ll be posting here with the latest news as it comes.
