My book Lonely Satellite has reached the quarterfinals of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA). As many of you may recall, I’ve been to this dance a couple of times before: Bias Cut was an ABNA semi-finalist in 2012, while Charlotte Dent was a semi-finalist back in the competition’s debut year in 2008. I haven’t won ABNA yet, and I don’t expect that will change this year (Lonely Satellite is meeting with a cool reception, which is weird; it's like readers maybe aren't looking for a post-apocalyptic alternate-timeline gay romance?), though anything's possible.
If you like, you can head over to Amazon and download the first five thousand words for free. If you’re feeling especially inspired and/or pro-Morgan, go ahead and post a review. Be sure to check out some of the excerpts from the other contestants while you’re there; there are a slew of talented writers in the mix. Like Thomas Mays, whose book A Sword Into Darkness just might win it all. I’d be okay with that. He seems like a thoroughly cool guy, even if he did proclaim us archenemies on Twitter.
Enough ABNA talk. Let’s do some keywords! Because nothing is ever private on the internet, here are some of the search phrases people have entered into Google to find this website over the past few months:

Eh, zombies, preppies, close enough. You’ve found the right place.
