Another Country bookstore to celebrate the launch of my debut novel Retrograde. It's been a long road here, and at times writing a novel has felt like the easiest part of the process, what with all the time and effort it takes to edit, edit, edit a million more times, pitch to agents and publishers, do even more editing, do even more pitching, and... you get the idea. Of course, giving a reading is something I've also had to work on over the years, from my tendency to read to fast and forget to breathe, to deciding how to pronounce some characters' tricky German names the way you would in English, to not running away because I have to do something in front of other people. But most of all, this Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate with friends and fellow book lovers, and hear interesting outside perspectives about writing, and I'm really looking forward to it. For those of you who aren't in Berlin, (you're missing out!) check out Meerkat Press' Facebook page for the virtual launch on Monday. There'll be prizes, fun and book-nerdiness galore!I hope many readers (as many of you are in Berlin, anyway) will join me tomorrow at

Retrograde won't be out until this fall, but you can get your hands on a copy a lot sooner if you like writing book reviews. Just enter the giveaway on GoodReads by the end of this month for a free advance copy. Hope you enjoy it!

Meerkat Press for my first novel was very, very (and even more 'very's to be honest) exciting, but it's easy to forget when you first sign with a publisher how much time and work are involved in going from the offer to a physical book in your hand. Which makes it so much more exciting that Retrograde is now available for presales with great cover art by Laurel Hausler. I may still have to wait until September to actually be able to pick up a copy, but it's already out there! And yes, I'm all about paperbacks. eBooks would look so much less pretentious if I lined my shelves with them.
