The paperback is flying off the shelves, yay!
Hey, Kelly and I will be in Boston this week for the AWP Conference and Book Fair at the Hynes Convention Center. We’ll have a Small Beer Press table at the book fair (L26) and I will be sure to bring a few copies of Steampunk!
The book fair is open (from a groggy 8:30 AM [really, AWP, really?] to a last-person-standing-gets-to-pack-it-all-up 6 PM) to all and sundry on Saturday. Come on by and say hi!Leave a Comment »
It’s publication day for Steampunk! An Anthology of Strange and Fascinating Stories. Fingers crossed the paperback will go out and find millions of new readers. If you can’t find it in the shops, how about in a library?
Steampunk! was the (proud and amazed!) recipient of five starred reviews, was an Indies Choice and Locus Award finalist, and was featured on the LA Times Holiday Gift List. Two of the fourteen fabulous stories, Libba Bray’s “Last Ride of the Glory Girls” and Dylan Horrocks’s “Steam Girl”, were reprinted in Jonathan Strahan’s The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year Volume Six, and Kelly Link’s “The Summer People” was reprinted in Rich Horton’s The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy 2012. “The Summer People” also received the Shirley Jackson Award!
Thank you again to all the wonderful contributors and to the amazing peeps at Candlewick Press who took our little book and launched it out there so well. Woohoo, here we go again!Leave a Comment »
We got lovely news recently: Steampunk! is a finalist for the Locus Award along with Kelly Link’s story “The Summer People.” And, “The Summer People” is also a finalist for the Shirley Jackson award. Congratulations to all the finalists!
The Locus Awards are presented at their fun weekend in Seattle—which we will miss, boo!—in June and the Jackson’s are presented at Readercon, in Burlington, outside Boston, in July. We will only be at Readercon for the first day or two as we will be going to Seattle on the Saturday to teach the Clarion West workshop. Can’t wait to see what kind of stories the workshoppers will be writing. And it looks like we have a reading scheduled while we’re there: July 17th at the University Book Store at 4326 University Way NE in Seattle.

Headline says it all! There will be a reading, Q&A, and signing at 3:30 PM at Back Pages Books (289 Moody St.) in Waltham as part of the Watch City Festival. We went last year and loved wandering around meeting all the different artists, seeing the parade, and just being part of a great day.
The weather is supposed to be 80 degrees and fair, bring your parasol!Leave a Comment »
We’re over the moon* to see that Steampunk! is a finalist for the Indies Choice Book Awards. As two former booksellers (who met while working in a bookstore) this means a lot to us. Plus, there are a lot of great books on that list!
For poetic justice I kind of hope Shine by Lauren Myracle wins in the YA category. Also, I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen must win the picture book award. There’s still half a chance we will be at BEA, you never know, so maybe we will see in person who wins.
* Ok, so we’re actually in New Zealand at the Writers Week, but it is very away from home and it is awesome to be here so it is sort of like being over the moon.
And this week we get to meet Dylan Horrocks, whose Hicksville we’ve been a fan of for years. I even bought a second copy of it (somewhere, where?) because it was signed. Which explains, I suppose, why I do not have it here. Eek!
