OTHER by Karen Kincy Taken from Authorsnow.com. This book isn't released until 2010 and there is no cover yet, but I am VERY excited about it! * Publication Season/Year: Spring/Summer 2010 * Publisher: Flux * Release Date: TBD * ISBN (hardcover): TBD * ISBN (paperback): TBD Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves. When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive. The Author: Karen Kincy Location: Olympia, WA A shameless nerd and lover of snark, Karen lives in Olympia, Washington, where she is a junior studying linguistics and computer science at The Evergreen State College. She ripped off her hometown of Snohomish, WA for the fictional locale of Klikamuks, where Other takes place. When she’s not at her computer, writing, she’s probably out in the forest with her notebook, writing, or on a photography expedition with her trusty digital camera. She likes to imagine werewolves lurking among the trees. My Thoughts: I've been following Karen's LJ blog for about two years now and watched her go through the query process, deciding to quit writing altogether and when she stopped blogging for a time. I feel connected to her in a way that I really want to see her succeed! I feel like I've watched her grow as and writer, a person and a student.
