Happy Friday, All,
Sometimes a signing just falls into place, organically without much effort on my part.
That happened this morning. As I’ve said elsewhere, I am attending Emerald City Comic Con in March in support of Unfettered III. While there, I’ll see a lot of authors I know and will get to meet many I haven’t met yet. One of the latter is Gwenda Bond, an author who has had a great career so far and it’s only getting better with every year that passes. So much so that Del Rey Books wanted her on one of its most important books of 2019–Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds, the first official novel set in the Stranger Things universe!
Here are details about the book and how it fits in with the blockbuster TV series!
A mysterious lab. A sinister scientist. A secret history. If you think you know the truth behind Eleven’s mother, prepare to have your mind turned Upside Down in this thrilling prequel to the hit show Stranger Things.
It’s the summer of 1969, and the shock of conflict reverberates through the youth of America, both at home and abroad. As a student at a quiet college campus in the heartland of Indiana, Terry Ives couldn’t be farther from the front lines of Vietnam or the incendiary protests in Washington.
But the world is changing, and Terry isn’t content to watch from the sidelines. When word gets around about an important government experiment in the small town of Hawkins, she signs on as a test subject for the project, code-named MKULTRA. Unmarked vans, a remote lab deep in the woods, mind-altering substances administered by tight-lipped researchers . . . and a mystery the young and restless Terry is determined to uncover.
But behind the walls of Hawkins National Laboratory—and the piercing gaze of its director, Dr. Martin Brenner—lurks a conspiracy greater than Terry could have ever imagined. To face it, she’ll need the help of her fellow test subjects, including one so mysterious the world doesn’t know she exists—a young girl with unexplainable superhuman powers and a number instead of a name: 008.
Amid the rising tensions of the new decade, Terry Ives and Martin Brenner have begun a different kind of war—one where the human mind is the battlefield.
Pre-Order STRANGER THINGS: SUSPICIOUS MINDS signed by Gwenda Bond! She will sign these copies at Emerald City Comic Con in March and the books will ship then! If you are a fan of the TV show, this is the perfect book for you!
Back to work for me! Have a great weekend!
