My friend, Rachel Caine, NY Times best-selling author of the Morganville Vampires and Weather Wardens books, has been developing Morganville as a webseries by way of a successful Kickstarter fundraiser. She's developing her new craft of scriptwriting while jumping into the deep end of learning to produce for film. Talk about a challenge! But the results have been fantastic. Check out this trailer for Morganville: The Series. The first episode airs on October 27th on Geek and Sundry. I read Glass Houses, the first Morganville book, in first draft. I am thrilled that the story has resonated with so many readers and taken Ms. Caine to fantastic new levels of art!
Another friend, science fiction writer M.J. Carlson, self-published his debut novel this month. I've been reading M.J.'s work for years now and while Changed is well worth anyone's time and small change, I can tell you that the best is yet to come. Changed features an interesting concept and engaging characters. The descriptions of a future, climate-change affected Jacksonville, FL, are worth the read alone. Combine that with a solid action-oriented story with a hard science core and about halfway in, you have a page-turner. M.J. has extensive medical and computer science experience and it shows in his work. Go read Changed now so that you can say that you were in at the beginning later.
Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today!!!
