Today is the day! My new novel The Kuiper Belt Job is now on sale wherever books are sold!
The Kuiper Belt Job is a caper story in space, a mash-up of Ocean’s 11 and The Expanse with a dollop of Firefly and Leverage. It’s an ensemble piece with complex character relationships and a twisty, compelling plot, but beneath the entertaining surface it raises deep questions about identity and personhood. In a world where minds can be copied, what does it mean to be “me”?
This is my fourth published novel, but the first one in five years and my first small-press novel. If you would like to help, here are four ways:
1. Buy the book!
The number 1 way you can help is to buy the book! It is available in most places where you can buy paper books or ebooks, but here are three of the most popular:

It’s also fabulous if you get the book from a library! Multnomah County Library has five copies on order, and if your local library doesn’t have it they might very well order it if you ask nicely.
2. Attend a reading!
If you are in one of the places I’m visiting on my book tour — which does includes two online venues, so that’s everywhere — I’d really appreciate it if you would show up! I can promise you an entertaining time, with music and giveaways as well as a reading and Q&A. Here’s my schedule:

3. Post a review!
After you have read the book, I would really appreciate it if you would post a review on Goodreads or Amazon, or on your own social media. It’s okay if you don’t love it! Sharing your honest opinion will help other people decide whether or not they might like the book.
4. Tell your friends!
Even if you are not the type of person who posts reviews, please be aware that word of mouth is the most important way that people find out about books. If you read the book and love it, tell your friends! Or, even if you don’t read it or don’t like science fiction, you might know someone who would… please tell them!
Thank you all for any help you can provide. Keep ’em flying!
