I am absolutely delighted to tell you that I have signed a contract with Echo Publishing for my novel IDA, to be released in Jan 2017. I wrote the first draft in 2011, if you’ve been following me on twitter then you’ve probably seen me talk about it BUT I thought I would post something here as well.
Ida is a figuring out what to do with her life. This is complicated by the fact that she has the ability to live out the alternatives to the choices she makes, by travelling between parallel universes. This has never really been a problem until one day when she sees a shadowy, see-through doppelganger of herself on the train. Is Ida actually in control of her ability? And how far will she stray from her original path before she realises there are no choices left?
This is an intelligent and entertaining novel that explores love and loss, and speaks to the contemporary condition of an array of overwhelming, and often illusory, possibilities.
So it’s a very fun book, lots of MYSTERY and whatnot. (And of course there are many queers in it because why wouldn’t there be. Also a fun fact: there are six main charcaters and four of them are trans, something I’m noting because 1. it is important for trans characters to be present and 2. it is trans day of visibility!)
