Like Sam Kemi tumbling from a mountaintop, I’m being snowed under by an avalanche of news at the moment! But today I get to announce something I have been working on for quite some time now… an entirely *new* series!!
The details were out in The Bookseller today: http://www.thebookseller.com/news/alward-signs-new-series-ss-set-near-future-582116
It doesn’t yet have a title, but here are FIVE things I can let you know about the new book:
1) It’s going to shine the spotlight on girls in STEM fields: specifically my smart, inventive, teen engineer heroine Lacey and her super coder best friend.
2) Lacey’s robotic smart pet is called Jinx (thanks to the robot at the Edinburgh National Museum for spelling out his name – see above)
3) It’s set in a near-future Toronto (aka one of my favourite cities in the world)
4) If you loved The Potion Diaries, you are going to love this!
5) You’ll have to wait until 2018 to get your hands on it!
