Supercritical: A Link In The Chain

9 May 2012

Book Two — who will survive, and what will be left of them?

For someone with a book coming out in just over a month, I realize I haven’t talked a whole lot about Supercritical. It’s an odd thing, as the books I’ve written for the past three years have mostly been out there in public, thanks to the Twitter Novel Project. Supercritical was written almost in secret by comparison — I didn’t talk too much about it while I was writing it, didn’t post excerpts or bits of the work in progress. It was like The Dark Knight, where very little information leaked during production.

I read one of the first reviews yesterday, and they commented that “the ending was quite a surprise.” (You can find the review in the June 2012 edition of RT Book Reviews, on newsstands now, or you can wait two months for the review to be posted online.) Of course, the ending wasn’t a surprise to me, but I was glad it had that effect on a reviewer. It’s way better than “the ending was quite as expected.”

But reading this review made me realize that I have no idea how Supercritical is going to be received. I think it’s a better book than 47 Echo — but I also expected the ending. So here’s a question: if you read the first book, what kind of things do you want to see more of in the second? And if you’ve gotten a review copy of the second book already, where do you think the story is headed for the third?

Yep. Pretty self-centered post. But my name is on the shingle, so I get one of those every once in a while.
