Today I posted a "getting to know you (and by 'you' I mean 'your work')" quiz for the summer writing challenge I'm hosting. It's been a while since I introduced myself here, so I'll post a tailored version of the questions and my responses for any newish blog readers. Feel free to answer the quiz questions yourself in the comments!
What are you working on this summer? New project on continuing a work-in-progress? Novel, short story, or other? Genre? And what's it about?
I'm working on The Owl Bearer, a novel in progress. It's Science Fiction with a side of Romance. It's a coming-of-age story set on a far-future Earth that has been largely depopulated by a nano-engineered plague. When space-dwelling humans arrive with the intention of resettling the planet, Willa, an ambitious, overconfident young woman from an insular and xenophobic culture, travels to a distant island to serve as her people's envoy at a global summit meeting. There, she uncovers truths about her past and faces threats to her future, while trying her best to not fall in love with the feckless "spacer" assigned to be her aide.
