It’s been a surreal ride writing it, to be sure- it’s a standalone epidemiological fantasy novel following a plague across a continent. A few months into writing it, news started coming from China of some new virus. Four days after I sent it to my editor, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic.
I really, really wish The Wrack hadn’t been so timely.
It’s a weird, depressing little book, but it’s also a hopeful one, and I’m very much proud of it- it’s some of my best writing to date. If you’re not up for reading a novel about a plague during a pandemic, I totally get it- but if you are, I hope you enjoy it.
Stay safe, everybody.
