Eligibility Post 2020

In a year that felt anything but sunny, I had two solar-themed books come out in 2020: BLACK SUN (adult) and RACE TO THE SUN (middle grade).

BLACK SUN is a big, sprawling epic fantasy set in a secondary world inspired by the pre-Columbian Americas. Kirkus said it was “rich, detailed, and expertly constructed.[…] A beautifully crafted setting with complex character dynamics and layers of political intrigue[.] Perfection.” It was named a best of 2020 by the NYPL, Amazon, Tor Reviewer’s Choice, Kirkus, and more.
