Guess what, y’all? I’M OFFICIALLY AN AUTHOR NOW!! My book Iron Widow has been published by Penguin Random House. It’s a sci-fi reimagining of China’s only female emperor, featuring giant mechas inspired by Chinese myth creatures and an M/M/F love triangle that resolves in ✨polyamory ✨. You can get it pretty much anywhere books are sold, though I recommend buying it from your local indie bookstore if you can. If you’re in the UK/Australia/New Zealand, it comes out on Oct 7 instead!
An audiobook is also available! (Get it from Libro.fm because they support indies!)
Translations into French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian, and Portuguese are to come.
(PS. I’m dressed as a huadan, a type of character in Peking opera traditionally played by men. If you enjoy that kind of demolishment of gender roles, Iron Widow has plenty!)

Anger always leaves a large void behind it, into which a flood of sorrow pours instantly, and keeps on flowing like a great river, without beginning or end.

“The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures, sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Society and Solitude
