Previously Recorded at the Writers House

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.

* 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.

New COIN Book!

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…FurCoin
