I love visiting Colorado. I’m fortunate in that my cousins live there, and seem quite happy to have us crash now and then. (Or, at least, they don’t kick us out when we show up.) I’m looking forward to great beer, lots of nature and, most importantly, seeing my cousin’s new baby.
And I’m doing a reading and discussion with my awesome agent, Sara Megibow, on Wednesday, July 2, at Boulder Book Store. So I got that going for me, too.
It’s going to be a bit different from the events I’ve done in the past in that Sara and I will talk about the behind-the-scenes process of getting a debut novel published. Given last year’s sale of Night Shade Books to Skyhorse Publishing, there are some good stories to tell. I’m also going to read from my latest book, The Enceladus Crisis, and we’ll take questions on just about anything.
And yes, I’ll happily sign your books. That never, ever gets old.
Again, it’s Wednesday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m. MDT at the Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl St. in Boulder, Colo. The event page is here. Vouchers to attend are $5, but you can then put that $5 toward a purchase at the store that evening — or a purchase of my books any time you like. Sara and I will do our level best to make sure you get at least $5.01 worth of information and/or entertainment.
The Daedalus Incident was one of the best books I read last year and I waited very anxiously for The Enceladus Crisis to be released. Everything about what Michael J. Martinez is doing with these books delights me, and this second book in the series was no disappointment…. This is a fantastic book and I can’t wait for the next installment.
Of course, I’m working hard on that next installment, The Venusian Gambit, due out next March, which is why I haven’t blogged much of late. That will probably change in the coming weeks as I wrap up Gambit and do a bit of traveling. In addition to Colorado, I’m spending a few days the following week in Idaho, and visiting San Francisco later in July. (There’s a signing at Borderlands Books, too!)
Many thanks to Caleb for the kind words, and to Boulder Book Store for hosting Sara and I.
