Guest Post: Alvaro Zinos-Amaro

Fairwood Press launched five new books last week (including my collection!) and it has been fun to share a release day with some really wonderful authors. Today I’ve got a guest post from one of my fellow Fairwood authors, Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, talking about his new book Traveler of Worlds: Conversations with Robert Silverberg.

MidAmeriCon II wrap-up post

I had the most amazing of all possible Worldcons. This will be a somewhat scattered post, because there is so much going on at Worldcon that it felt like I was constantly jumping from one thing to the next, and everything has merged into a chaotic jumble in my mind.

First Lines

For the past 27 days, I’ve been posting the first line from each story of my collection on twitter, one line per day. It was interesting to see all of them together because I started seeing patterns in how I tend to start stories. The other thing I noticed was that for some stories I managed to get the hook into the first line, but other times I didn’t. I was often tempted to include more than one line (but it wouldn’t fit into the tweet), and those were the stories where the hook came a little later.

So here …

Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World by Caroline M. Yoachim

My collection comes out on August 16th, one week from today!

If you want a sample of my work, many of the stories are available to read online (see my publications page for a complete list), but I thought it would be fun to post a teaser from one of the two original stories in the collection.

The excerpt below comes from the opening of “On the Pages of a Sketchbook Universe,” a secondary world fantasy novelette.
