We’re heading into fire season here in Oaxaca. A haze is in the air and ash floats by when the wind is in the right direction. There’s not much you can do about it but pray it doesn’t get too close. Our house is solid concrete, no danger there, but we have to keep an eye out on the straw-thatched roof of my separate office.
I’m going up north, as they say here, to promote my new novel, The Library of Broken Worlds, which N.K. Jemisin called “modern epic poetry.” I’ll be in LA for Yallwest on April 29th and I’ll be back in that town on June 6th to celebrate the book launch. I am so excited to share this book with the world but it all feels a little distant from where I’m typing. I can’t wait to share that energy with fans and friends in a few weeks. Details are up for Yallwest, and are coming VERY SOON for the book launch. I’m also lining up a few other virtual and in-person appearances for June and July, so watch this space for more info. And of course, check out the book and preorder it if you can! Even recommending it to your local library is a huge help.
