Here Be Dragons

Escape Orbit has been nominated for the Dragon Award for best science fiction novel!

The Dragon Awards are purely fan-driven, anyone can nominate their favorites at DragonCon’s website and registration is free. You don’t even have to vote in each category, only the ones for which you have a clear preference. The most nominations in each category will move up as finalists for voting in August. If you enjoyed Escape Orbit, I hope you’ll consider clicking the link and adding your nomination to the tally. I also hope you’ll consider adding a rating or review on Amazon, B&N, or Goodreads (or all three!) and spread the news with your friends and family. Word of mouth goes a long way, and I truly appreciate your contribution.

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you about a new anthology: The Ross 248 Project is a collection of stories about humanity colonizing the worlds around a faraway star. When Baen first approached me about contributing, it was tempting to decline as I was neck-deep in the first draft of Escape Orbit. The greater temptation was to be featured in an anthology that also contained stories by writers like D.J. Butler and Monalisa Foster. Thankfully I made time to do it because writing “Garden of Serpents” was terrific fun. It has something of an Aliens vibe, with an advance team of soldiers carving out a base camp on a planet named Eden. Suffice it to say Eden is a long way from paradise. The Ross 248 Project is available now from, Amazon, and anywhere else fine books are sold.
