Guest Blogging on Babel Clash

This is fun! I'm guest blogging for the next week (minus a few days around Christmas) over at Babel Clash on the Borders website. The topic is the balancing act between creating the world of your story, and moving the action along quickly. Definitely something I spend a lot of time thinking about, so it's a great subject for this.

Book Trailer

A huge thanks to everyone at Harper who put this together. Especially for following the #1 rule for making a cool trailer, whether it's for a book, a film, or a TV show: military helicopters are always cool. (FYI, a corollary to this rule is that, in the case of a comedy, monkeys are always funny; alas there are no monkeys in The Breach.)

The first few chapters of The Breach are available online now at the HarperCollins site! If you're not busy, you can check them out here. Hopefully you'll be hooked! (I'll settle for grudgingly compelled to find out how it ends.)

Thanks to my editor Diana Gill for the link, by way of a very kind post on the Eos Blog.
