2014. Books, books, and more books!

The year in which I do my best to fill your shelves, dear readers!

Out now! The paperback of A Turn of Light with the first pages from A Play of Shadow in the back.

The special edition trade omnibus Species Imperative launches September 1st, and ... drumroll...

A Play of Shadow, Book 2 of Night's Edge, this November!!!

Events galore, signings in astonishing number. Yup. The hard part of the year will be avoiding me. (You don't want to do that, do you?)


Bring on 2014!!


ChiSeries Writers Workshop, August 17th, Ottawa

Got a problem with your story? You aren't alone. Join me Sunday, 1-4 pm, at the University of Ottawa for:


"Destroy All Story Gremlins! We all have them. Plot gremlins. Character gremlins. Annoying sticky pacing gremlins that make you want to scream and--Ahem. Trust me, we ALL have them. The good news? Yours can be destroyed! Bring your story gremlin for annihilation by Master Story Gremlin Exterminator, Julie E. Czerneda (who's killed a few in her day.) This half day workshop may be just what your gremlin fears most!"

Registered and rar'n to go. Keep all digits crossed, folks. Could you imagine my glee to actually launch A PLAY OF SHADOW at World Fantasy? (Be still my beating heart.)

INSPIRE! Toronto International Book Fair,
Nov 14-16th

I'm delighted to announce that I'll be a participant in this amazing and HUGE event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Just in time for A PLAY OF SHADOW!

My first item is the SFWA panel, " The Future Ain't What it Used to Be:Despite the amazing technological advances of the last fifty years, our world looks very different from the future predicted by science fiction. This panel asks the question of what role SF writers play in predicting and preparing us for the future."

Closer to the fair I'll post times for signings and other events. See you there!

November - Launching A PLAY OF SHADOW

Bakka-Phoenix Books will host the event, sure to be Amazing!!!
