In which I announce my new exciting project…


Hahaha yes, that one.

The H and I are pleased to announce our big collaboration for 2013–a little Snake baby! Expected release date: mid-September. We expect said collaboration to be a bestseller, at least with friends and family 🙂

Unfortunately, this means that my public presence activities for 2013 are going to take a severe hit. I’ve pulled out of a bunch of things and rescheduled a bit. Among the casualties are my BSFA interview in May, and WFC in November. However, to make up for it, I’ll be at the Nebula Awards Weekend, though I suspect at this stage of the process it’ll mostly involve sitting in the bar, drinking lots of water and eating a lot of food.

(in case you were wondering why I dropped out of sight since December–yes, that would be it. First trimester is no fun 🙁 ).


  1. Congratulations!

  2. Congratulations! That’s great news. If I were coming to the Nebulas, I’d toast you in person, but please accept a glass raised from a distance.

    All the best!

  3. Congratulations!

  4. Oh, Aliette! Congrats. Such a delight for you and the H. Wishing you an uneventful pregnancy!

  5. Congratulations to you and the H!

  6. Aw thank you everyone!

  7. Awesome! Congratulations! Wonderful news!

  8. De-lurking just to say congratulations! Hope it all goes smoothly and good luck with parenthood. It’s a helluva ride…

  9. Huge grats! It’ll be a shame to miss you at WFC though.

  10. Congratulations, Aliette! Wonderful news!
    And although I would have liked to say a proper hello at WFC the reason of your absence is more than exciting.
    Are you sleeping a lot? My wife took some long naps in the first months of pregnancy, but later on she used to stay awake in the middle of the night. 😉
    Keep safe and take care of yourselves! And once again, congratulations!

  11. Sorry, bit late with the congratulations here, but that’s brilliant news! Congratulations to both of you 🙂

  12. Aw thank you everyone!
    @Wesley and @Mihai: hahaha, will miss WFC, but I suspect by the time it comes around I’ll be much, much busy 🙂 (I’m not sleeping an awful lot–not as bad as your wife, but definitely having troubles)

  13. Congrats on this too!

  14. Congratulations!!! Absolutely thrilled for you! My first trimester was awful too, but now I’m in the home stretch and have just 3 weeks to go until the baby is due! Feel free to e-mail me if you want to chat about anything – will miss you at the next few events but I’m sure we will both have our hands full in the meantime. Love and big hugs,
    Gem xxx

  15. Aw thank you!
    @Gemma: best of luck to you and hahaha yes, we’ll have our hands full in the meantime 🙂

  16. Congratulations!

    A good baby, unlike a good book, is one which you CAN put down. :-/

  17. Congratulations! Sending wishes for a safe and uneventful pregnancy.

  18. Wow! Congratulations!

  19. Thank you!
    (and Seth: LOOOOOL)
