This is my first time at BEA, and I’m really excited!
The YA Writers episode of LIVE at the Writers House is now online! I don’t like listening to recordings of myself, but if you want to hear me read from my story “Kiss and Kiss and Kiss and Tell” in Kaleidoscope: Diverse Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories, check out episode 111 here.
You can listen to the whole program (1 hour) — hosted by Michaela Majoun and featuring YA authors Katherine Locke, Eric Smith, Lauren Saft, Tiffany Schmidt, I.W. Gregorio, and me, as well as the musical stylings of Birdie Busch — or just my bit (7 minutes). This is one of the best events I’ve participated in, and I’m grateful to Eric and LIVE producer Alli Katz for making that possible.
If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, including links to all the participating authors and a full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.

In celebration of Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories being nominated for Australia’s prestigious Ditmar Award for Best Collected Work, the eBook of the anthology will be on sale for $1.99 from Thursday, April 2 through Monday, April 6! Whatever flavor you like your eBooks in — Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks, etc. — it’s only $1.99!
This is a very fine collection of stories, and I’m so proud to be a part of it. I read the beginning of my story “Kiss and Kiss and Kiss and Tell” at the recording of LIVE AT THE WRITER’S HOUSE, which will air on Monday, April 6 at 8pm EST on WXPN. If you were there (thank you for coming!) find out what happens next by grabbing the $1.99 eBook. If you missed it, you can still listen on Monday and then get the book before the sale ends. You can also read some free stories from the collection online.
At only $1.99, with twenty fantastic stories from amazing authors*, there is zero probability that you will regret picking up Kaleidoscope!
* Yeah, in this instance I’m including me in that glowing praise, because I think this is one of my best stories and I felt pretty amazing when I wrote it.
Sometimes readers ask me if there’ll ever be a sequel to Fair Coin and Quantum Coin. While I’m not going to rule it out, I’m excited to share that a new SF imprint, Pur Books, has asked me to write a parallel novel to the series. They threw a lot of money at me to make this happen, and I’m pleased to report that you can look for Ephraim’s next adventure, Fur Coin, in bookstores in Fall 2016! Be careful what you wish for…
