The novel Expiration Day by William Campbell Powell was published on 22nd April 2014, by Tor Books of New York (a Macmillan imprint).
I'm very proud to be at Sasquan (World Con) where Expiration Day has just won the Hal Clement Award for Excellence in Young Adult Science Fiction.
Very happy that Expiration Day has picked up an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Westchester Fiction Award .
I'll be travelling to Spokane, WA for a couple of days, attending Sasquan , as the convention is known.
I've signed up for panels and a Writers Workshop - plus maybe a couple more events. I'll post updates here .
The YA Scavenger Hunt gives readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from favourite authors, to win prizes and to discover new books and new authors. Expiration Day is joining Blue Team - one of 8 teams of 20 authors and their books.
Over the long weekend of April 2nd - 5th, entrants are invited to follow a winding course through the websites of their chosen team, picking up clues from special guest pages.
Expiration Day will be offering a deleted scene, and a copy of Expiration Day will be contributed to the prize pack.
And may the odds be always ...
No. It's not that sort of competition. Go have fun. Discover new books.
The Compton Crook Award is for debut authors in the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror genres, and is run by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society . The award will be announced in April, leading up to Balticon in May.
It's a tough shortlist with some excellent new authors on there. There are a couple of other Tor authors there, so kudos to Tor for investing in new talent. And there's a very fine novel that I've already read and reviewed - Emmi Itäranta's Memory of Water .
