It’s finally here! This is release week for Valiant Dust, the moment when a couple of years of work (well, off and on, a month here and a couple of months there) sallies forth to meet the reading public.
Naturally, I’ve been doing what I can to talk up my new book in various articles and formats around the internet. So today’s post really consists of a few links to articles you might find interesting if you enjoy my writing or you’d like to find out more about the hows and whys of my new series. In no particular order:
My Favorite Bit
I contributed a little essay about Valiant Dust‘s “Torpedo Mystery” to Mary Robinette Kowal’s excellent “My Favorite Bit” article series. You can read it at:
The folks at Unbound Worlds generously offered me the spotlight with an exclusive piece on Sikander North and Writing Colonialism. Writing this essay made me take a step back and really think about what I’m trying to do in the Breaker of Empires series.

Finally, I wrote about the most important ship in Valiant Dust–a ship that does not actually appear in the story. Curious? You can find out more here:
In other news, I’m scheduled to record podcasts with Dungeon Crawlers and Functional Nerds, I’ll be signing books at Liberty Bay Books in Bremerton on November 25th, and I’ll be dropping in on Reddit for an AMA on November 30th. If you’re anywhere reasonably close to the Seattle area and you’d like me to drop by your store, just send me a note; I love to discover new bookstores and say hi to fellow sci-fi fans!
