We are delighted to have acquired the critically acclaimed fantasy novel Our Lady of the Islands by Shannon Page (A Sword in The Sun) and the late Jay Lake.

If you pay much attention to publishing announcements, you may wonder why you’re hearing about books coming out two to three years in advance. “I’ll forget about that by the time it comes out!” you may think. You’re not alone. As a reader, I’m right there with you, even though I know why things are this far ahead. (And though I work inside the business, I’m happy to defer to a real publishing expert, Nora Roberts, author of 215 books, who “personally explained” the process to an impatient fan not long ago.)
Being Editor in Chief at Outland is only one of the hats I wear; I’m also a reader and reviewer, and I’ve been lucky enough to cover some of what I read over at Den of Geek. In summer 2019, I coined the hashtag #Stitchwitchery to describe a phenomenon that fascinated me: the combination of magic and sewing, which was explored in two current series, Rowenna Miller’s “The Unraveled Kingdom” and Elizabeth Lim’s “Blood of Stars.” When both of those series concluded this summer, there was no question I’d want to read them!

With a bisexual, Latinx hero and cast of unpredictably oddball aliens, STATIC OVER SPACE flips the script on damsels-in-distress to take a hilariously scathing look at the underlying nature of sexual politics, gender roles, and power imbalance.
Regardless of how you’ve published–self, with an indie publisher, or with a large publishing house–you need to use your online network of influence to promote your publication, your name, and your brand. But sometimes promoting your own creation.. and yourself… can be daunting, especially for artists who specialize in being artists and not in marketing and sales.
