The Dangerous Type hits the streets

Yesterday was the official release date of the first book of my trilogy.  I’ve been merrily checking the links as they come in. There are some great ones I wanted to share.

First off, The Dangerous Type made io9’s list of must-read fiction for July.  I am thrilled to be on a list with my hero Richard Kadrey’s new Sandman Slim book, as well as Kim Stanley Robinson, Guillermo del Toro, China Mieville, N.K.

The stage is set for a revenge tale constructed from a web of complex, strained relationships.”  Here’s the rest of the list:
