Falling Sky is now available for preorder

As people on Twitter and Facebook already know, Falling Sky, my first novel, has a release date – October 7, 2014 – and is now available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other online retailers. Right now only the print book is available but I’m pretty sure the ebook will be available down the line.

I also wanted to post the full art for the cover, courtesy of the brilliantly talented Chris McGrath. I knew Chris from his Dresden Files covers and many others and I was beyond thrilled when I learned he would be doing my cover as well. As you can see, it’s pretty amazing.

Rising Tide – October 6, 2015


Rising Tide, the sequel to Falling Sky, will be released on October 6, 2015. Publisher's Weekly said, "Khanna crafts a terrifyingly dismal picture of the future, raising the stakes by gradually stripping Ben of friends and support while throwing him into increasingly dire situations. His worldbuilding remains solid and unsettling, and he never loses sight of the human element. The cliffhanger ending is sure to leave readers on the edges of their seats, panting for resolution."
