Release Day: The Evolution of THE DAUGHTER STAR and a Review
Posted May 28, 2013on:
It’s been a great release day so far! Thanks to everyone who’s made it a memorable one. This new series is off to a fantastic start.
If you want to read more about the evolution of this book, check out this guest post over at the incomparable M. Fenn’s place! A taste:
The first draft started out being a fun, silly kind of space adventure, and I didn’t take it entirely seriously. I remember writing at the time that I was writing a Jenny Starpepper Mystery (or a kind of pulp adventure novel. It makes sense if you’ve seen the movie Paul. Why haven’t you seen this movie? Go see this movie! It’s like a love letter to SFF fandom, and it has Sigourney Weaver).
There’s also another review up! Check out what Everett Maroon, who I had the honor of being in the Topside Press COLLECTION with, has to say about the book on his site. An excerpt:
Nobody writes a sullen woman like Susan Jane Bigelow.
