Orbit Books in a two book deal by Cameron McClure at The Donald Maass Agency (World). You can find Song’s thoughts on the deal HERE. Speaking of Orbit, the website has a report HERE on five other books that sound interesting including a new book from Jeff Somers starring Avery Cates, “Monster” by A. Lee Martinez and a few others…
