Can I have a review copy?
Perhaps! Contact my publisher; they’re in charge of these decisions.
If you contact me directly, I probably won’t be able to help. I only get a limited amount of copies for personal use, and sending them abroad (which is nearly always the case) costs an awful lot of money. I’d have to spend easily €30-50 of my own money for each requested book, which I can’t afford. Sorry!
Will your novels be available in my language?
If an edition isn’t listed in the “editions” section of the book’s individual page (or if no such section exists), it either means that no translation is forthcoming, or that I’m not yet supposed to talk about it.
Either way, the page will have all the information I’m able/allowed to give you.
If you’d like to see a book translated in your language, the best approach is to reach out to local publishers to bring the book to their attention and express interest in a local edition.
Are your books part of a series? If not, are there sequels planned?
As of this moment, all my books are standalones; there is zero overlap in world or characters.
There are currently no sequels planned, either. I’m always open to the possibility of sequels or companion novels if I get an idea that works, but it’s not something I’m currently pursuing.
I have written a companion short story to On the Edge of Gone, however, which was released in the Defying Doomsday anthology in 2016 and reprinted in the Wastelands: The New Apocalypse anthology in 2019. The story, titled “And the Rest of Us Wait,” is set in a temporary shelter in the Netherlands and takes place during the same time period as On the Edge of Gone. The novel/story be read independently of each other, and any order.
Did Marvel give you the plot for Guardians of the Galaxy: Collect Them All?
Not at all. They offered a lot of freedom. They invited me to write for them, I came up with the story and pitched it, and we hashed out details together. It was a wonderfully collaborative experience.
Is Guardians of the Galaxy: Collect Them All set in the world of the movies?
It’s set in the regular comics universe. That said, it should be completely accessible to people who have only seen the movie(s).
Is Guardians of the Galaxy: Collect Them All written for adults or teenagers?
It was intended and marketed for adults. That said, it’s just as suitable for teenagers.
