Author-friend Elliot Cooper is celebrating the release of his latest book, Junk Mage! Today we host the main character, Quillian Defote for a little Q and A.
To get a little glimpse of the inner workings of technomancer Quillian Defote’s mind and life, we have a few questions. First off, say hello, Quill!
Quill: Hi! Hello! I’m happy to be here.
As a technomancer, you’re able to bend technology to your will. What exactly does that feel like?
Quill: When you’re f
At the start of the year I was on a roll with writing every day. I hammered out several short stories in a very short amount of time. For a while now, I haven’t been writing, and it’s been bugging me because nothing can move forward unless I’m producing more words.
But I’ve realized I’m not writing because I’m now EDITING all those stupid stories! So here’s an editing update: Learning To Want:

It had arrived! Spring Tide is a Zodiac Forces story that was originally published in an LT3 anthology. Now it’s available as an independent book, with 5k new words and a shiny new cover through LoveLightPress.
Cancer is the watercraft-branch of the privatized Zodiac Forces. If you can float a boat, you’ll find Cancer operatives on the water investigating. Whiplash and Cardinal are two soldiers off the coast of Italy, hot on the trail of an ivory smuggling gang.

Go get this book. It releases on the 13th and you want it. If you’ve ever bought a book on my recommendation before, you NEED this book.
First, I can’t believe I’ve never read anything by Amelia before. She’s made my auto-buy list from the first chapter. This book is THAT good. I’ll be grabbing her entire backlist the second I get paid. You should too.
Jack of Thorns has an amazing voice. The characters have secrets. Their secrets have secrets. And that’s hard to
I picked up The Slave because it was free for a day, and boy am I glad I did. This is an intense love story, not really what I expected from a slave-fic. The entire thing happens from Tam’s point of view, the writing is beautiful, and I can’t wait to pick up the next book in the trilogy.
Be warned, this book doesn’t end on a cliffhanger so much as stop in the middle of the climax. It’s an awful place to end book one and is probably responsible for some impressive sell-through on book
I made a deliberate choice to diversify the cast of Perihelion. This is a direct result of seeing the topic of diversity, and its various successes and pitfalls, discussed across twitter. The #WeNeedDiverseBooks and #DiverseSFF movements both have come across my feed for a while now, and the various strong voices within those movements have become regulars. And unlike my interest in slash fiction, which grew organically out of fandom, my interest in diversity came as a result of a very obviou
Twitter has brought a lot of new people to my attention: authors, artists, voice actors, readers. And they all know even more people worth connecting to. A publisher might ask about the strength of your social platform, but I don’t think mine is good at selling my books. I do think it’s great for connecting me with a variety of people that can make my job as an author much easier.
Utsav Gupta came to me via a mutual twitter friend. They’re a graphic arts student and fre
Nariah absently rolled a loc of her hair and squinted at her textbook. ”So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, so long lives this, and this gives life to thee. … what?” It wasn’t even old English, it was like, Greek trying to pass as English. Badly. She propped her head up and blinked at the sonnet again. ”Shall I compare thee–”
Something tugged in Nariah’s chest: a sensation like yearning, but with direction and intent. That was far better than analysing Shakespeare. ”Mom!” She
Restless Spirits is a great casual read. The plot is quick and engaging, the characters are interesting, and the whole thing seems to move along at a nice clip. I found myself halfway through the story in only a few hours.
I want more of this world, and I’ll be picking up the sequel without a doubt, but I found myself a little disappointed with reveal of the bad guy and his plot. There was a monologue moment and while the characters discussed the possibility of a person interfering wi
