Acknowledgements for DISPERSAL

I would like to take a few moments and thank a few people for helping me land, finish, and publish DISPERSAL.

There was a nurse by the name of Sarah Clark who was a friend of a friend, who under no obligation at all, chatted with me for ages via Facebook regarding medical research for the book. I named a character after her as a means of thanks and appreciation. After the draft had been finished, I asked the same questions of Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America who confirmed Sarah's findings, but since the book had already been turned into my editor there wasn't a way to thank him in print. Thanks to you both! You made me look smart.

Steve Jacobsen, a microbiologist at UCLA, mentioned to me how I should look up how scientists are using digestional microbiomes to cure the super bug (antibiotic resistant infections) and it was that bit of information which led me to twist it a bit and use it in DISPERSAL. Thank you!

I would also like to thank Bree Ogden for bringing this project to me, and Jennie Goloboy at the Red Sofa Literary Agency who represented me during the DISPERSAL deal. I couldn't have done it without you two believing in me. Thank you!

A ton of thanks and praise to David Thomas Moore, my editor on both EXTINCTION BIOME books. He understands my writerly intentions exactly - it was so utterly amazing to work with him. Notes like, "You did this, and initially I couldn't figure out why, but then you did THIS and I was like, YES! Ok. Good set up. Leaving it." It means everything to me that he understood exactly what I was going for, finding the layers hidden among all the action. I just can't say enough how it sustained me on days when I wondered if I had the chops to write a book of this caliber. Also he once said I write like I have a gun in my other hand which I have seriously considered tattooing somewhere on my physical person. I hope we get to work together again, Dave. Thank you!

Buckets and buckets of love to my writers support group: Robin, Meredith, and Lisa, who listened to me moan, complain, and crow and haven't kicked me out of the group yet. Thank you, ladies!

To Adam Christopher, Jen Foehner Wells, Chris Bucholz, and Carrie Patel for their blurbs! I owe you each a solid.

And all the love in my heart to Daniel and my girls who put up with frozen pizza dinners and my nonexistent patience when I'm on deadline. Sorry! And also, thank you for not kicking me out either.

A special thanks to Tom and Bella for not assassinating me yet - although, one of these days, I think Tom might succeed. He wants it more. I don't really blame him.

[And to every single person who told me I should probably "just write romance" (as if that's any easier - psst, it's not), and how I shouldn't write adult sci-fi because it's too hard to break in to, and to every person who looks shocked when I tell them what I write... This middle finger is for you.]

xoxo,
-Anne

Baltimore Book Festival

Having recently joined the SFWA (Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America) I had the opportunity to participate in the Baltimore Book Festival in September as my alter ego, Addison Gunn.

What a lovely location!




 Picture by Anne Tibbets

The Inner Harbor in Baltimore was teaming with tents from the north to the south side of the water. Complete with food and drink trucks, mobile book stores, and multiple author venues, if you were in or around Baltimore around the 24 - 26th and didn't go, you missed out!

 
Picture by Anne Tibbets


The SFWA tent was hopping! At times with standing room only. They featured panels about character development, world building, race, research, historical fantasy - you name it! Kudos to organizer Sarah Pinsker for organizing a fantastic program.

I want to thank the SFWA for including me and thank all the authors who were so welcoming and supportive of this newcomer. I hope the Baltimore Book Festival will be a tradition I may continue to enjoy. :)

EXTINCTION BIOME: INVASION has launched!!

The wait is over!
The complete paperback edition of EXTINCTION BIOME: INVASION by Addison Gunn (aka. Malcolm Cross and Anne Tibbets) is in book stores everywhere! So go get it now!

PURCHASE LINKS: HERE

A thrilling new military SF series.

Four years in the military, training for a war that never happened, left Alexander Miller disillusioned and apathetic. Now, as second in command of COBALT, a corporate bodyguard unit for the biotech giant Schaeffer-Yeager, he’s little more than a glorified chauffeur to the wealthy elite. But times change.

A threat from the ancient past has reawakened, and like a Biblical plague it threatens to consume every ecosystem on Earth. Hordes of parasite-infected humans riot against the increasingly powerless authorities as vast fungal blooms destroy crops and terrifying beasts stalk city streets.

The last time this happened, T-Rex found itself on the menu. But mankind's got more than teeth – it's got guns. Miller and the men and women of COBALT are pressed into service to fight the onslaught, but they have no idea how cut-throat their corporate masters can be...

Part Four of EXTINCTION BIOME: INVASION - Operation Sea Mink Launches!

The countdown toward the release of EXTINCTION BIOME: INVASION approaches!

Can't wait two more weeks? You're in luck!

Part Four: Operation Sea Mink launches across all e-platforms today. :)

PURCHASE LINKS HERE





While collecting a team of Schaefer-Yeager scientists from Infected territory, Alex discovers the Archaeans, a group of Infected with a degree more control over themselves, falling victim less slowly to the Archaeobiome. He also meets their leader: his ex-girlfriend, Samantha.
On returning to the Compound, they learn that the nuclear warhead Harris had sent for had arrived in the East River, but the freighter was damaged, its crew lost or incapacitated. Gray sends Miller on OPERATION SEA MINK, a mission to retrieve the warhead before an increasingly paranoid and ambitious Harris gets to it...
Extinction Biome is a new military-SF series about a world overrun by an ancient ecology, awakened from a millennia-long dormancy to destroy the human race; and about the decisions we must make to try and survive.
