Are You Ready to Tackle Your TBR?

Hello, everyone!

My dearest Tressa over at Wishful Endings is currently hosting the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon. But you know all about that by now, right? Of course you do! (Quick! Sign up through September 23rd here.)

Today on the schedule is solely dedicated to MOI, and to celebrate I am giving away a copy of Trixter! As you know, Trix is the precocious foundling little brother of the infamous Woodcutter Sisters. His antics were the whole reason that Hero happened in the first place…and now he has his own series of adventures! If you’re not familiar with his story, find out a more below, and then don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

Trixter (The Trix Adventures Book 1)

(The Trix Adventures, Book 1)
May 2015

Trix Woodcutter is the long prophesied Boy Who Talks to Animals. Heís also a foundling prankster scamp who places his family under a sleeping spell so that he can run away from home. Compelled by a vision of his dead birthmother, Trix departs on the eve of a Great Catastrophe, only to find himself caught in the maelstrom. Armed with little more than his wits and the wisdom inherent in all fey-blooded youth, Trix confronts a legendary Animal King, faces off against a ghostly feline, rescues a damsel in distress, and discovers more about himself than he ever wished to know.

And this adventure is only the beginning.

[Bookshelf] Jeff Carlson’s FROZEN SKY

I’ve had this on my list to blog about for a while…and now that I’m jumping back onto the intarwebs post-Sandycane, the subjectmatter seems even more fitting.

I’ve known Jeff Carlson since he won the Writers of the Future Award in 2007 for his novella “The Frozen Sky.” I am not–nor have I ever been–a Writers of the Future Award winner, but in 2007 I was in the unique position to be a stowaway in LA during the WotF workshop. I short, I had a really terrible time. I tell everyone that Jeff was a knight who saved a damsel in distress because from the minute he showed up, he was. Plain and simple.

Since then, I’ve watched Jeff from my Ivory Tower, pleased as punch at the success of his sci-fi PLAGUE trilogy. (I’ve also enjoyed many an insane video of Jeff’s extreme ski stunts.) I am also singularly happy that he has expanded The Frozen Sky into a novel (available in both paperback and e-book form).

A little bit about The Frozen Sky:

Something is alive inside Jupiter’s ice moon Europa. Robot probes find an ancient tunnel beneath the surface, its walls carved with strange hieroglyphics. Led by elite engineer Alexis Vonderach, a team of scientists descends into the dark… where they confront a savage race older than mankind…

“I’m hooked.” —Larry Niven
“A first-rate adventure.” —Allen Steele


Jeff recently did a really great guest post on SF Signal about The Frozen Sky, and why he chose to buck the traditional publishing route for this book — click here to check it out.
