The Song of the Orphans

Yeah, it’s been a long wait, but the sequel to The Flight of the Silvers is finally done. Fifty-six chapters. 738 pages. It’s a monster, but I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

The novel will be released on July 4 in hardcover, e-book, and audiobook formats. For you early reviewer types, the ARCs are now available from the publisher.

If it’s been a while since you read The Flight of the Silvers, and you don’t know your aeris from a hole in the ground, don’t worry. You can go to the Story So Far section and find a whole mess of memory refreshers, including an illustrated plot summary, a character guide, and a glossary of alt-world terms. That way you can jump right into The Song of the Orphans without having to re-read the first book.

The Flight of the Silvers

The first book in the Silvers series. Two sisters and four strangers, plucked from their world at the cusp of apocalypse and transported to an Earth they barely recognize. An unprecedented tragedy in 1912 has set history on a different path. Restaurants float through the air like flying saucers, while common household appliances bend the fabric of time. Afflicted with temporal powers they never wanted, and hunted by enemies they never knew they had, the six alien refugees are forced to work together to stay alive. Their only hope: to cross a radically-changed United States and find the one man who can help them.

The Flight of the Silvers was released in 2014, and is widely available as a paperback, e-book, and audiobook. If you’ve read the novel and have burning questions, see my Flight of the Silvers Reader’s FAQ for more information.

My debut novel, a comedic tale of lies, tricks, and public relations in the pre-social media age. There isn’t a shred of science fiction to be found in this book, but if you like stories about shrewd young publicists and out-of-control media hoaxes, then this one’s for you.

Slick was originally published by Random House/Villard in 2005, but I got the rights back and now I’m releasing it independently on the Amazon Kindle.
