Still here (with bonus modern airships)

In case anyone was wondering.

It’s been almost six months since I last posted (and then about Rising Tide coming out). Since then jobs have been worked, crises have been navigated, and my brain has been allowed to settle back into something resembling a creative state.

But I’ve started to emerge from my coccoon and I am greeted by this news:

Lockeheed Sells New Airships for $480M

The idea of modern airships is a key part of what helped shape the world of Falling Sky and Rising Tide, but I haven’t seen much movement of late, so this is exciting, particularly the heavier-than-light technology that allows them to hover (something I’ve used in the books, without necessarily explaining it).

Helps to invigorate me as I work on the last novel…

 

 

Rising Tide Release Day!

Today is the day! Rising Tide is out today. In bookstores both physical and digital. If you want a copy, go out and get one! And if you do get one, and read it, it would be great if you would consider leaving a review of the book somewhere where people can see it.

Publisher’s Weekly said of the book, “”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.”

Hope you’ll pick it up.

Rising Tide: The Details

Rising_Tide

So the release of Rising Tide is almost here. Here are some things you may need to know about the novel.

  1. Rising Tide is the second in a series of novels. Falling Sky is the first. You’d probably be better off reading Falling Sky first, but I’m hoping that isn’t strictly necessary.
  2. The book should be available at your local bookstore but is also available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ABEBooks and pretty much any retailer. Hardcopy or eBook. If you want to pick up a copy buy it wherever makes you happy.
  3. If you do buy it, and read it, reviews are really helpful things for writers. If you write me one, I would be forever grateful.
  4. If you’re in the New York area (or will be), the launch party for Rising Tide will take place on October 8 at the Antler Beer & Wine Dispensary starting at 7PM. A limited amount of books will be for sale at the event.
Promo Season Begins in Earnest

I’ve been trying to sneak out promotional links a little at a time, but today I have a few that all came at once:

King of Shards Trailer

I wanted to get a post up today but I just finished writing a post about Rising Tide that will appear on LitReactor later this week. So rather than talk more about it here, I thought I would instead help spread the word about King of Shards, the debut novel by my friend and very talented writer, Matt Kressel. I read the novel back when it was just a draft and I was impressed with the fantasy that Matt put together, drawing heavily on Jewish mythology. This is one to look out for. King of Shards comes out October 13, the week after Rising Tide. Check out the book trailer below and then preorder it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, indiebound, or the store of your choice.

Rising Tide -Out now!


Rising Tide, the sequel to Falling Sky, was 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."

Falling Sky – Out now!


Falling Sky, my first novel, came out October 7, 2014 from Pyr. It's an adventure story set in a post-apocalyptic future with airships. Publisher's Weekly called it a "solid and memorable debut" while Library Journal gave it a starred review and named it Debut of the Month. For more information, please click here.
