This is my first time at BEA, and I’m really excited!

The Silence of Six is full of puzzles for Max and his hacker friends to solve. If you think you have what it takes to be a hacker, play this digital scavenger hunt inspired by the book, hosted by Adaptive! The grand prize is an Xbox One, and there are prize packs with signed books, hoodies, masks, and a uniquely themed USB drive.
The game is afoot, beginning today and running through March 15! You will get your first clue from awesome booktuber Regan in her video below. Be sure to follow @AdaptiveBooks on Twitter for rules and updates! Good luck!
Exciting publishing news I can share now that it’s official: I’m writing a sequel to The Silence of Six, titled Against All Silence, for Adaptive Books! I’m very excited to tell the next part of Max’s story and work with everyone at Adaptive again. These books are technically standalone (because I have feels about cliffhanger endings), but you’ll see some recurring characters (yes, her, and also, her), so feel free to read the first book or its free prequel if you like.
Here’s the announcement from Publishers Marketplace:
Um… Happy New Year?
Sorry for the crickets around here, but I’ve been taking time off to hang out with my new(ish) baby. The Spud is awesome and busy and exhausting! I’m finally getting back into the writing groove though, and clearing out 2014 (and *gulp* 2013) e-mails in pursuit of Inbox Zero and a fresh start on things. I came across a link to this video from my first post-Spud author event, a panel at Haverford High School Library with Marie Lamba and Ellen Jensen Abbot. We talk a lot about writing, so I thought it would be worth sharing with all the young writers out there.
This was recorded the day after The Silence of Six was published, and shortly after the Spud arrived; I was so tired, I totally forgot to read from the book, but it’s okay, because I talked about why I love libraries instead. (If I say anything too wacky, chalk it up to sleep deprivation.) This was a fun Q&A with some terrific—and unusual—questions. Thanks again to the HHS English Depts and Monica Lalor for producing such a fine video. Enjoy!
