SOLD! Congrats debut author Spencer Ellsworth!

2016-08 headshotHuge round of congratulations to debut author Spencer Ellsworth whose space opera, A RED PEACE, sold to TOR!

Spencer is the first client I’ve signed from a conference – huge round of applause to the Cascade Writers Conference and cheers to a whirlwind summer for this talented new author!

In the deal announcement at Tor.com, Spencer says, “This story’s first scene barreled into my head years ago: a galactic empire has fallen, celebrations ring outside, and the order rings out in the new corridors of power: “Kill all humans.”
