The post-apocalyptic novel Sherwood Smith and I wrote, Stranger, is finally out! It's the "Yes Gay YA" book. But you could just as easily call it "The one with the telekinetic squirrels," or "The X-Men in the post-apocalyptic Wild West," or "The one where the sheriff is super-strong, the doctor can speed up time, and the plant life is out to get you."

Kirkus gave it a starred review, calling it " afirst-rate page turner that leaves its own compelling afterimage."

Other points of possible interest: Psychic powers. Luscious food descriptions. Detailed world-building. Hurt-comfort- lots of hurt-comfort. Thrilling battle sequences. Cute animals. Killer crystal trees. Romance in every configuration: gay, straight, lesbian, and poly. Illusion-casting rabbits. Flying cats. And, of course, telekinetic squirrels.

It had a publicity budget of literally $0, so anything you feel like doing to spread the word would be great.

On Kindle: Stranger

Barnes and Noble.

I didn't realize it was a Thursday release! But B&N delivered our pre-ordered ebook today and all is well.

I have just ordered the book from my friendly local indie book-shop. Via twitter :)

I didn't know it had telekinetic squirrels! And Illusion-casting rabbits. Now I am looking to it more forward than ever.

I had forgotten it was due out, and that I'd preordered it, so I had a lovely surprise delivery email in my inbox yesterday.

Several chapters in, loving it.

Oh I'm so ready to read this :)

I've been looking forward. And right from the start, it has that sense of wonder that so many near-future books lack: what is it with those trees?

I'm hooked.

***So*** much of this I don't remember from looking over the healing angel's shoulder when he was beta reading what? like five years ago? I am really excited to read the final version!

Will spread the word.

From: [identity profile]

Thank you! We got no publicity whatever until a month or so ago, when it was effectively too late, and Rachel had to work hard at it to get that little bit. So any signal boost people feel like doing will help.

By the way, I notice a fair amount of love online for Felicité, whom I know was one of the healing angel's faves.

Your editor is enthusiastically making sure the Norton Award Jury is getting copies, just so you know. She says we'll love it. :)
