- Beverly Jenkins Is Trailblazing Her Way onto Television (Book Riot) “Forbidden, the first novel in her Old West series, [has] been optioned by Sony Pictures Television in a first look deal via the Ripped Bodice partnership that was announced last year.” Jenkins writes wonderful historical romances featuring black and POC characters, and Forbidden is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to see this onscreen!

- The 25 Most Anticipated SFF Books of 2020 (Tor.com) They left off a few good ones, notably the next-in-series Wayward Children and Murderbot books.

Maas, a new Victoria Schwab, the next Lady Astronaut book by Mary Robinette Kowal, a new series by Rebecca Roanhorse, and a lot more.
