I just got back from this year’s Chicon (Chicago Convention) – host of the 70th World Science Fiction Convention, also known as Worldcon – where I tied for the Hal Clement Golden Duck award in the YA Category for A Long Long Sleep! Below is a photo of me with my duck necklace as proof.
Many, many people have asked about a possible sequel to A Long, Long Sleep. There is one in the works, but I’m afraid I have no idea when such a thing may be published. As of this time, it is still in the editing stage. When a sale is made and a release date is set, I promise the knowledge will be generally known. I will say, knowing the glacial pace of the publishing industry, think months if not years. I apologize to everyone who wants to hear more about Rose, Otto and everyone else right now, but I actually have no control over this whatsoever. Thank you, however, for your interest!
My first book: A Long Long Sleep has been released!
Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss.
Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten sub-basement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose — hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire — is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat.
Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existance, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes — or be left without any future at all.
