Alyc Helms: Achievement Unlocked

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Yesterday we announced the exciting news that we have signed Alyc Helms as an Angry Robot author, with her debut novel – The Dragons of Heaven – due for publication in Spring of 2015. Alyc has written an insightful piece on her blog about her journey to publication which we have extracted here. For the full piece, click through to this page. Over to Alyc…

The exciting news that I’ve been sitting on since early January is that Angry Robot offered for my novel The Dragons of Heaven and an as-yet unnamed sequel, to be published in April 2015 and 2016. The initial muppet-flailing has quieted to a Fluttershy ‘yay,’ but my enthusiasm is not lessened for all of that. I’ve been riding this high for months, and I don’t think it’s going away.

However, I look at all the hard work and revision and rejection and depression and revision and rejection and depression and revision and and and… And I have to admit to myself: I got lucky.

Here’s what luck looks like to a writer:

I’ve always loved books, and I scribbled stories and poems starting when I was a kid and continuing well into my twenties: band-fic and blood-soaked vampire odes, re-hashed fairy tales and snarky swordswomen. I finished three stories, sent them out to Realms of Fantasy, got rejected, and moved on to other things. Becoming an author seemed impossible, something that had been done long ago by people I admired but not something I could ever do. I returned to school in my late twenties with the plan to become a research anthropologist, childhood dreams of being a fantasy novelist packed away alongside the Prima Ballerina thing.

I met Marie Brennan at a field school in Wales. In the evenings, when I wasn’t running a cobbled-together Changeling game for her and a few other women, Marie was writing the first draft of the book that would eventually become her first novel sale. I had met authors before, but this was the first time I met a peer who was serious about writing. Even then, and over the years as we solidified our friendship, I had no question that Marie would someday succeed as an author. It was inevitable.

Seeing her determination changed me. I had a reference point. A template. My academic work was in representation and identity, so I recognized why that was so important. If you see someone like you achieving something you thought was impossible, it renders that thing possible for you.

Becoming friends with Marie was my first lucky break. I started noodling around with fiction again. At this point, I was in grad school for anthropology and folklore. I’d spent several years thinking about the structure of stories, about representation, about cultures and cultural relativism and worldbuilding, about the intersections between gender, race, economics, and politics. I had THINGS TO SAY. I was crap at saying them, but I had some solid material to start from.

Some friends and I formed a writing group. Scat Hardcore included Marie, Mike Underwood, Darja Malcolm-Clarke,Siobhan Carroll, Emily Dare, and Ryan Markle, all of us still figuring out who the hell we were as writers and what the hell we were doing. We helped each other learn about writing, but also about the business of writing: networking, submission, rejection, markets, publication, conferences, workshops, etc. We learned how to take the craft and our dedication to it seriously. Scat Hardcore was my second lucky break. I can’t emphasize enough the value of a solid and serious writing community filled with people who are just slightly more talented, more dedicated, or more professionally focused than you.

At that time, I was still concentrating on my academic work and only writing short stories. I wrote a couple stories–I had learned from my academic writing about this thing called revision, and it turns out it can make your writing better!–but I didn’t really grok short stories. I still don’t think I’ve quite cracked how to write a good short story, even though I’ve managed to sell a few. Novels are my thing. Novels I grok. Novels are where my heart is.

Novels are a hell of a lot longer than short stories.

In 2006 I was playing in a supers tabletop game run by my friend Jason Pisano. I wanted to make a shift in the character I was playing–a legacy pulp hero with a lot of heart and no heroing experience–so I asked Jason if she could go to China to train with the ancient dragon who’d trained her grandfather. He said sure. I asked him to fill in the details for me. He looked at his stable of ten other players waiting for him to adjudicate things and told me to write it up myself and submit it for XP.

That was my next bit of luck. Along around the time my ‘little side-adventure write-up’ hit 40k words, I realized I had the longest thing I’d ever written, the seed of a novel, and I still wasn’t bored. Of course, it was a character fic. It wasn’t novel-shaped at all. Missy was unfocused as a character, and the story was based in a world owned by a large corporate gaming company. But at this point, I’d seen Marie take a seed from a gaming experience and turn it into a series of amazing novels–her Onyx Court books. I knew I could reshape The Dragons of Heaven. Read More→

We, here at Angry Robot HQ, are simply delighted to announce Alyc Helms has joined the ranks as an Angry Robot author. In a two-book, World English, deal, Alyc was signed from Lindsay Ribar and Stefanie Diaz (Greenburger Assocs) and Anna Carmichael (Abner Stein). The first title, The Dragons of Heaven, will be published in April 2015.

alychelms-authorphoto1Alyc Helms: “I feel so lucky to join the Angry Robot family–The covers! The inside-the-covers! The authors! The staff!–I’m completely chuffed. I get to say chuffed now. It’s one of the perks.”

Marc Gascoigne: I do like it when the team bring in a novel proposal and we all devour it at a single sitting. Such was the case with the delicious The Dragons of Heaven by Alyc Helms, which we all love and cannot wait to present to you, our devoted readers. It’s another in a long line of wonderful Angry Robot books that defies categorisation without resorting to a hell of a lot of hyphens. Alright, if you insist: it’s a sort of superhero-pulp-kung fu-magician-fantasy-mystery-adventure. See what I mean?”

The Dragons of Heaven

Drawing on the legacy of Indiana Jones, Jack Burton, and The Shadow, Missy Masters is an adventure heroine for the 21st century.

“A tough, witty young woman who inherited her superhero grandfather’s powers barrels through a rollicking ‘Big Trouble in Little China’-esque tale filled with magic, monsters and wisecracks. I loved it.”
Alex Bledsoe, author of The Hum and the Shiver, on The Dragons of Heaven 

Street magician Missy Masters inherited more than the usual genetic cocktail from her estranged grandfather; she also got his preternatural control of shadow and his legacy as the vigilante hero, Mr. Mystic. Problem is, being a pulp hero takes more than a good fedora and a knack for witty banter, and Missy lacks the one thing Mr. Mystic had: experience. Determined to live up to her birthright, Missy journeys to China to seek the aid of Lung Huang, the ancient master who once guided her grandfather.

Lung Huang isn’t quite as ancient as Missy expected, and she finds herself embroiled in the politics of Lung Huang and his siblings, the nine dragon-guardians of creation. When Lung Di, Lung Huang’s brother and mortal enemy, raises a magical barrier that cuts off China from the rest of the world, it falls to the new Mr. Mystic to prove herself by taking down the barrier. But is it too great a task for a lone adventure hero?

Would you deal with the devil to save the world?

About Alyc Helms: Alyc Helms fled her PhD program in anthropology and folklore when she realized she preferred fiction to academic writing. She lives above a dive bar in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she’s a project manager for Macmillan, a freelance editor, and a volunteer copyeditor for Nightmare Magazine. In addition to writing, she dabbles in corsetry and costuming, dances Scottish Highland and Irish Ceili at Renaissance and Dickens fairs, rants about social justice issues, and games in all forms of media. She sometimes refers to her work as “critical theory fanfic,” which is just a fancy way to say that she is obsessed with liminality, gender identity, and foxes. She’s a graduate of Clarion West 2012, and her short fiction has appeared in Daily Science Fiction and Crossed Genres and will be appearing in Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet and Beneath Ceaseless Skies.

Is there a burning question that you wish you’d asked an author when their book first came out?

Did you read an interview or blog post – after your post – which brought more questions or ideas to you?

Or did you simply not have time to chat with a certain author and would now like to?

I want to know which of our authors you would like to interview, or have a blog post from, but they must have published pre-2014. This doesn’t exclude authors, that have published with us pre-2014 and throughout this year, but have a think and let me know who you’d like to get in touch with.

Our full list of authors can be found at this link and I’m looking forward to hearing from you with your author selections! Feel free to pick more than one, and I’m sure I can arrange some special giveaways for this Backlist Boost.

Simply get in touch with me, caroline.lambe@angryrobotbooks.com, and I’ll set up any interviews etc. Please note that not all authors will be available but do let me know your ideal author to talk to, and I’ll do my best!

We love a good cover reveal here at Angry Robot Books and we’re really excited about this one!

The Guild of Assassins by Anna Kashina is the second book in the Majat Code Series and the sequel to Blades of the Old Empire. We know there are a lot of you out there excited to read about the continuing adventures of Kara, so without further ado here is the cover!

 TheGuildOfAssassins-144dpi

Beautifully created by Alejandro Colucci, we hope you love it as much as we do!

But we’re not the only people with something to say about the cover, Anna Kashina has written us an exclusive guest post on what she thinks about it!

Have a read below:

The Author, Anna-Kashina

Anna Kashina

I was delighted with Angry Robot’s choice to feature Mai on the cover of “The Guild of Assassins”. While he is not the point of view character, he is the focal point of the story, and his choices and actions drive the conflict and the plot. He is also my favorite character in the entire series, the one that makes the writing process so much fun. I could not be happier about the way the artist Alejandro Colucci picked on all these things in the cover image.

In the novel, Mai is initially described as “too good-looking to be trustworthy”, following on his descriptions from the “Blades of the Old Empire” as a man of iconic beauty, elegant and graceful. He is a superb fighter and a ruthless man. He has a dark side and not everyone in the story perceives him as a good guy. He also has a romantic side. All these contrasts are instrumental to the story. In the final cover image, the artist managed to relay all of that, and to add the extra down-to-earth touches that made this iconic man of my dreams look like a person in the flesh. He is handsome and elegant, but his clothes are also dusty and practical. His weapons are unique and beautifully crafted, but also heavy–and sharp. I love the way the artist relayed all of that.
Seeing this cover for the first time was thrilling. I felt as if my vision has been grounded into reality, the person in my mind acquiring substance. I believe this cover, showing movement and speed, featuring the central character everything revolves around, would create the right expectations for the readers, of a fantasy story with lots of action and romance (and hopefully, for some, a man to swoon over). This cover is also well in style with book I of the series and I can’t wait to see how well “Blades of the Old Empire” and “The Guild of Assassins” would look side by side.
So you’ve heard what we think, you’ve heard what Anna thinks, so now the only thing to do (apart from wait excitedly for the book’s release) is let us know what you think!

In the mountains of Zalazar lie the White Towers, pillars of legend said to contain the Heart of the Elves. The Iron Wolves must journey north to steal the Heart, and purify the evil in the land, but the land belongs to the Elves – and they won’t give it up without a fight!

Next Thursday (6th March) from 6.00-7.00pm Angry Robot and Titan/Tor author Adam Christopher will be at London’s Forbidden Planet Megastore to sign his latest books:

  • ~ The Burning Dark – paperback (Titan)
  • Hang Wire – paperback (Angry Robot)
  • Hang Wire – limited edition hardback (Angry Robot)
hang wire limited edition

Hang Wire paperback (left) and limited edition hardback (right)

The limited edition hardbacks (our 100th book, folks!) arrived at Angry Robot Mansions, today (see right) and they’re fabulous with a variant cover by the Kitschies Award-winning designer, Will Staehle.

The hardbacks (a steal at just £20!) are exclusive to Forbidden Planet, and only 100 have been produced for sale, so get one while you can!

You can pick one up at the signing, or if you can’t get there, order one direct from Forbidden Planet.

More cool stuff!

The first 50 people at the signing will also get an exclusive Hang Wire fortune cookie (it ties in with the book – honest!), with up to 4 lucky readers winning an on-the-spot prize!

HANG WIRE

Ted Kane is worried. He’s been sleepwalking, and his somnambulant travels appear to coincide with murders by the notorious Hang Wire Killer.

Meanwhile, the circus has come to town, but the Celtic dancers are taking their pagan act a little too seriously, the manager of the Olde Worlde Funfair has started talking to his vintage machines, and the new acrobat’s frequent absences are causing tension among the performers.

Out in the city there are other new arrivals – immortals searching for an ancient power – a primal evil which, if unopposed, could destroy the world!

File Under: Urban Fantasy [ Tensile Strength | Dual Identities | The Greatest Show | Bandits ]

Praise for Hang Wire
“The sheer volume of ideas is dizzying… an enjoyably fast-paced read.”
SFX Magazine.

“There’s a lot going in this genre-bender… Christopher fulfils our expectations and more. Days after finishing the book, you’ll still have a grin on your face.”

Robot Round Up: Best of 2013

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Happy New Year everyone!

It’s our first round up of 2014, so we thought we’d take a look at your favourites from last year. What got everyone talking in 2013?

 

Your Best of 2013

 

The Lives of Tao by Wesley ChuFirst off, The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu has made it into a few of your favourites piles, and was even voted into the top ten science fiction books in the Goodreads Choice Awards! Badass Book Reviews included it on their Best Science Fiction of 2013 list. My Bookish Ways and Staffer’s Book Review both also named it a top debut of 2013. Justin of Staffer’s Book Review says:

8 months ago I called The Lives of Tao ‘the most fun I’ve had this year.’ Fast forward to today and it’s still true. He [Chu] succeeds because he’s got a clever voice, full of subtle wit and kinetic pacing.” (Staffer’s Book Review)

The reviews for this book have been phenomenal, so it’s definitely one series to catch up with if you missed it!

Three by Jay Posey is another favourite. Jasper of Book Plank says: It is not only the world that makes Three interesting, the characters are spot on and only further help make this story a winner, and Tabitha of My Shelf Confessions says: You seriously do NOT want to miss this debut! We agree!

The Big Reap by Chris F. Holm, design by Amazing15Next up is The Big Reap by Chris HolmThe Founding Fields and My Bookish Ways both included it in their top books of 2013 lists, and both bloggers, S.J. and Heather, over at Snobbery picked it to top their list as one of their two Super Best Books of 2013! Wow!

Now, let’s just talk for a moment about Between Two Thorns and the Split Worlds series by Emma NewmanBetween Two Thorns was a hit with so many of you, and not only that, but it was also listed in NetGalley’s Top Ten of the Year! The Founding Fields, My Bookish Ways, and A Fantastical Librarian are just a few of the blogs that included it in their best of lists. Justin at Staffer’s Book Review also gave the gorgeous cover by Sarah J. Coleman a mention in his Best Cover Art post.

The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke also receives some great mentions in your best of lists, with characters that are “vibrant and real” (Badass Book Reviews). Mieneke of A Fantastic Librarian saying this about it:

“The Mad Scientist’s Daughter is stunning. A gorgeous exploration of love, the ability to feel it and other emotions, and the lies we tell ourselves in order to attain happiness that probes the border between human and AI to see how far they stretch.” (A Fantastical LibrarianRead More→
