Gravity of a Distant Sun is Available for Pre-Order!

Good news, everyone! The third Shieldrunner Pirates book, Gravity of a Distant Sun, is available for pre-order now, through IndieBound, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Amazon! You can also ask your local library to pre-order a copy for you. The prospective release date is February 18, 2020.

I spent Pride month revising sapphic spacefarer stories, so a couple of those are out on submission now. With luck, you'll read them sometime in the next year or two. If you preorder Gravity of a Distant Sun, you'll make those new stories more likely to be published, because that's how publishing works! Therefore...

Before Gravity of a Distant Sun comes out, use my site's contact box (or DM me on social media, if that's a thing you can do) to tell me you pre-ordered it, and include your mailing address in that message. I'll send a thank-you postcard.

While you're waiting for February and thank-you postcards, you can kill time by checking out this charming short film on YouTube called ITD. If you don't speak Swedish, enjoy the tense Ola Strandh score, because there are no subtitles. Don't worry, you won't get lost. It's helpful to know that the protagonists are a very well armed maintenance crew. The filmmakers spent the special effects budget where it belonged: on the killer robots! The esthetics are wonderful.
