So the good folks over at Simon and Schuster added not one but two new SF/F imprints recently: Simon451, whose first titles released just last month, and Saga Press, which will begin releasing titles in the spring. And there are exciting things going on at Saga Press, indeed! Just this week it was announced that they'd signed a two book deal with Kat Howard and last month they announced a deal with Chuck Wendig that involves not only continuing the Miriam Black series but also new editions of the first three titles.
But before we heard tell of all of that news, Saga Press released their list of launch titles, which includes a new book by Genevieve Valentine. You may recall I was particularly impressed by her contribution to Robot Uprisings, and I've been planning to read her latest, The Girls at the Kingfisher Club, for quite some time now.
Persona is a bit different but no less worthy of a place in my TBR, so of course it's in the wish list until it hits shelves in March. Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:
When Suyana, Face of the United Amazonia Rainforest Confederation, secretly meets Ethan of the United States for a date that can solidify a relationship for the struggling UARC, the last thing she expects is an assassination attempt. Daniel, a teen runaway-turned-paparazzi out for his big break, witnesses the first shot hit Suyana, and before he can think about it, he jumps into the fray, telling himself it's not altruism, it's the scoop. Just like that, Suyana and Daniel are now in the game of Faces. And if they lose, they'll die.
I expect this to be AMAZING!
