Hi everyone! I have not updated this website since (checks notes) September, good god.
Part of that, honestly, is because WordPress updated their backend and I don’t really know how to use it and I haven’t cared to learn. Which, maybe I should have taken the time, because it just took me ten minutes to figure out how to wrap text around an image.
Dear WordPress: what the fuck?
Anyway, back to the radio silence: I guess it’s not a big deal, because not much has happened since September. We’ve been in the midst of a global pandemic, I’ve mostly been working on projects that I can’t even tell you about… except now there’s one that I can!
The Paradox Hotel officially has a cover, a description, and a release date. It’s coming out February 22, 2022 (2.22.22!!!), and is now available for pre-order. I know that’s a long way off to consider pre-ordering the thing but remember, pre-orders are a big deal.
Here’s the cover. How gorgeous is this thing? And here’s the description.
For someone with January Cole’s background, running security at a fancy hotel shouldn’t be much of a challenge.
Except the Paradox is no ordinary hotel. Here, the ultra-wealthy guests are costumed for a dozen different time periods, all anxiously waiting to catch their ‘flights’ to the past. And proximity to the timeport makes for an interesting stay. The clocks run backwards on occasion—and, rumor has it, ghosts stroll the halls.
Now, January’s job is about to get a whole lot harder. Because the US government is getting ready to privatize time-travel technology–and a handful of trillionaires have just arrived to put down their bids.
Meanwhile there’s a blizzard rolling in, and the timestream’s acting strange. Which means nobody’s leaving until further notice.
And there’s a murderer on the loose.
Or at least, that’s what January suspects. Except the corpse in question is one that somehow, only she can see. And the accidents stalking their prestigious guests…well, the only way a killer could engineer those is by operating invisibly and in plain sight, all at once. Which is surely impossible.
There’s a reason January can glimpse what others can’t. But her ability is also destroying her grip on reality—and forcing her to confront secrets of her own.
Because here at The Paradox Hotel, the past is waiting around every corner.
This is a weird book and I am quite fond of it and I really hope you put a pin in this one and check it out. FYI if you’re curious to know a little more about it, you can read an excerpt at io9. I’ll be updating the actual sales page soon (I’ve reached my limit for how much WordPress I can handle this evening) but you can pre-order pretty much anywhere you would normally pre-order a book!
