This book just got real

20130220-090956.jpgWell, look what we have here, gang.  Three beautiful (uncorrected galley proof) copies of The Daedalus Incident, fresh off the presses! They’re so very, very pretty. Up to now, this whole let’s-publish-a-novel thing has been somewhat academic. There’s been a lot of pixel pushing and e-mailing on computer screens, but nothing truly material except for my red-marked drafts. But this…this is a book. A very real book that has heft in your hand and pages to turn. It’s a beautiful thing.

So…want one? If you head on over to Con or Bust, you can bid on one of these, and I’ll sign it and personalize it for you if you win. Proceeds go to helping people of color attend SF/F conventions when they might not otherwise afford to go. Diversity is a good thing. So go bid — the auction ends Sunday. As of now, this is the only way you’re going to read this thing before it hits shelves May 7!

Also, if you want to read about religion in SF/F, hop on over to The Night Bazaar. We’ve had some really great, thoughtful stuff on the topic, and I hope my two cents is worthy. Check it out.
