In Irina's Cards has a home at Soul Mate Publishing!

I have a brief, but very exciting update. I'm thrilled to share that my speculative trilogy, The Variant Conspiracy, has been picked up by New York-based Soul Mate Publishing!

If you've heard me mention the first book in this series, In Irina's Cards, you'll know this has been a long time coming for me. The ideas behind The Variant Conspiracy germinated as early as 2009 when I was still living in Victoria.

I hope you're all as excited as I am! Like my Facebook page, follow my Twitter feed, and check back on this blog for more updates and announcements as In Irina's Cards gets closer to release.

To give you an idea of what's coming, here is a brief synopsis:

In Irina’s Cards is the story of 19-year-old Irina Proffer who discovers a world of fringe genetic science and supernatural mystery. Following visions inspired by a strange deck of tarot cards, Irina learns of an amazing variation in her genetic code. She has the ability to see the past, present and future, in her life and the lives around her.

Irina sets out from her northern home for BC's coastal capital to get answers. She is drawn in by a powerful first love and a compelling, yet dangerous mystery. Working at Innoviro Industries and meeting other 'variants' brings Irina closer and closer to the dark truth about her origins. She finds herself at the heart of two overlapping love triangles as she scrambles to escape her employer's grip. At the close of the novel, Irina realizes she has merely scratched the surface of a frightening conspiracy on a global scale.
