SFFaudio News

Mary Robinette KowalMARY ROBINETTE KOWAL (1969 – ) A past contributor to SFFaudio, is an American John W. Campbell Award winning author who is currently serving as SFWA secretary. Kowal is also a puppeteer (non-Pierson’s) and has just sold her first novel to Tor books…

Dear Everyone I Know,

I have sold my novel!

Tor books, the largest SF publisher in the world, has bought “Shades of Milk and Honey,” which is my fantasy novel set in Jane Austen’s England. I’m delighted not only by the sale, but because my editor will be Liz Gorinsky who is not only personally charming, but also the editor for some of my favorite authors, like Cherie Priest. Needless to say, I am thrilled and have to tell EVERYONE I know.

I found out on January 30 but have been sitting on the news until we finalized some details. So you can look for my first novel to come out in 2010. So excited!

Yours,
Mary

I asked Mary what the word was on the audiobook version. Here’s what she said:

“the initial idea for this came from a radio serial that I was writing.”

There is also a good possibility of an audiobook.

Cool and congrats!
