The announcement is finally here! Starting Monday, I will be taking up a post as the North American Sales & Marketing Manager for Angry Robot Books.

I’ll be doing the job from Indiana for several weeks, then moving to NYC to work out of the US Osprey office. I lived in Brooklyn as a kid, and have visited several times a year with my sales rep job, and I’m excited to be back in the Big Apple, but not nearly as excited as I am to focus all my energy and experience with one publishing house, serving as a brand champion for Angry Robot, Strange Chemistry (the upcoming YA imprint), and Exhibit A (a Crime/Mystery imprint coming Spring 2013).
I first heard of Angry Robot a few years back, when my dad told me about a new SF/F house that Random House was distributing in the states. I immediately loved the cover design, the clear sense of humor in the cover copy and design, and the whacky range of titles they published from the beginning.
These will be a busy few weeks — but don’t worry, Geekomancy readers, I’m still hard at work on the sequel, and will keep plugging along as fast and as best I can.
