Somehow… I HAVE TWO BOOKS COMING OUT!!!

THE ART OF STARVING 

Coming from HarperCollins in July 2017! .  Rooted in my own experience as an eating disorder survivor, it’s Young Adult/Science Fiction/dark and edgy. Think: gay boy Carrie. The incredible Jacqueline Woodson said: “Beautifully rendered.  This novel will break your heart and heal it again. I found myself leaning forward as I read it, barely aware of myself turning pages.  So excited for Sam’s voice in the world.”

Publishers Weekly ran this story on Tuesday, July 21st, 2015:

“Kristen Pettit of HarperCollins has bought THE ART OF STARVING by Sam J. Miller; it’s a novel about a gay, bullied, small-town boy with an eating disorder who believes that starving himself awakens a latent ability to read minds, predict behavior, and control the fabric of time and space…”

THE BREAKS

A mysterious woman arrives in the floating Arctic city of Qaanaaq, in a future where rising seas have caused dramatic geopolitical changes. She’s accompanied by an orca and a polar bear, on a mission that might be bloody and might be beautiful and might be both. Here’s what Publisher’s Weekly had to say about it:

They incorrectly identify me as a Hugo nominee (I was long-listed last year, but not a finalist!) but otherwise IT IS ALL TRUE.
