Catching the Wind

51hQF8-CgfL-2Welcome to a world of wind and bone, songs and silence, betrayal and courage . . . 

I am beyond pleased to note that Fran Wilde— Taos Toolbox 2012— has sold her first novel Updraft to Tor, and that it’s now out to rave reviews.

The book was also workshopped at Toolbox, so I’d like to flatter myself that I had just a little bit to do with its success.

In any case, the book is a stunner, and you’ll find it at your local independent bookstore, or in the usual places online.

Here are a couple of the reviews, just to make you hungry.

“… The world itself is as much a character as any of the individuals within its pages, and in the grand tradition of science fiction and fantasy, the main character’s growth and struggles are bound up with learning more about the world. … I galloped through it to find out what came next…. With Updraft, Fran Wilde has written a compelling debut, and I for one look forward to seeing what she does next.” – Locus May 2015

STARRED REVIEW “Extraordinary worldbuilding and cascading levels of intrigue make Wilde’s debut fantasy novel soar. … The setting is marvelously unusual, a city grown from living bone and populated by everyday people who have left the ground far behind; though Wilde leaves many questions unanswered, this only adds to the mystery and delight, encouraging the reader to suspend disbelief and become immersed in Kirit’s story. This well-written and fascinating exploration of a strange land is an extremely promising start for an exciting new writer.” – Publisher’s Weekly, June 1, 2015
