My debut novel Geekomancy (ISBN:9781451698138) is available now from Pocket Star Books.
Ree Reyes’ life was easier when she just had to worry about scraping together tips from her gig as a barista-and-comicshop slave wage in the port city of Pearson to pursue her ambitions as a screenwriter.
When a scruffy-looking guy storms into the shop looking for a comic like his life depends on it, Ree writes it off as just another day in the land of the geeks.
Until a gigantic ‘BOOM!’ echoes from the alley a minute later, and Ree follows the rabbit hole into Pearson’s magical flip-side. Here, astral cowboy hackers fight trolls, rubber-suited werewolves and Elegant Gothic Lolita fate witches by channeling genre tropes and wielding nostalgia-powered props.
Ree joins Eastwood (aka scruffy guy), investigating a mysterious string of teen suicides as she tries to avoid imploding after her own drag-your-heart-through-jagged-glass breakup. But as she digs deeper, Ree discovers Eastwood may not be the knight-in-cardboard-armor she thought. Will Ree be able to stop the suicides, save Eastwood from himself and keep her job?
Praise for Geekomancy:
“Geekomancy is a glorious blender of genres, like a sweet candy shell filled with pop culture and high heroism. Absolutely stellar.
- Seanan McGuire, NYT-bestselling author of the October Daye and InCyrptid series
“If Buffy hooked up with Doctor Who while on board the Serenity, this book would be their lovechild. In other words, Geekomancy is full of epic win.”
- Marie Lu, author of the Legend trilogy
- Leanna Renee Hieber, award winning, nationally bestselling author
- Mari Mancusi, award winning author of The Blood Coven Vampire series
“Modern, sleek, and whip-smart, Geekomancy is a wonderful blend of geek and pop culture — you’ll find yourself grinning knowingly at least every other page. And Ree is the perfect protagonist to navigate Geekomancy’s world — geek enough to hold her own, yet human enough for me to be deeply invested in her struggles. I can’t wait to read the next one!”
- Cassie Alexander, author of Nightshifted and Moonshifted
“If you took wish-fulfillment, ground it to a powder, and shot twice the recommended dosage into your eye socket, the result would be a lot like Geekomancy. I want to live in this world, where all the books and shows and movies and games I love are a source of power, not only in psychological terms — which they already are — but practical, villain-pounding ones.”
- Marie Brennan, award winning author of the Onyx Court series and the forthcoming A Natural History of Dragons
