USED VINYL AND THE RISK-TO-HAPPINESS RATIO

INSTIGATORS

I wrote a thing for Rebel Noise about shopping for used records and the risk-to-happiness ratio involved. You can check it out here, if you're into that sort of thing. Meanwhile, my agent has started shopping my new novel around to editors, and I'm just sitting around in that half-lit twilight where I've just finished a big project and am not sure what to do next. After writing three books in four or five years, it's a pretty nice feeling. I'm sure I'll move on to the next thing here soon enough, but for now, I feel pretty good just listening to crappy punk records and drinking coffee.

REVIEW: RED CLOCKS by Leni Zumas

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 12.57.15 PM

Red Clocks by Leni Zumas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Brilliant, lyrical, with a story and characters that are ridiculously well-plotted and interwoven. With its nuanced exploration of family, motherhood, marriage, education and politics, it's one of those books that make me excited about what we're capable in novels. Easily one of the best, most compelling books I've read in the past few years. Absolutely recommended. View all my reviews

NPR DIGS MY NOVEL, Y’ALL!

perf6.000x9.000.indd

Been a while since I last updated about my novel, but one of my favorite mentions is that Jason Heller of NPR was gracious enough to review it. My personal fave quotes are that I'm "a talent to be watched" and that Mercy's "Riptide is one of the most immersive fictional settings in recent memory." But hey, why don't you just check it out for yourself.
