I Belong


Look Who’s Going to BEA: Nick James

Can you introduce yourself to my readers?

Hi! I’m a debut YA author from the Pacific Northwest. My first book will be published by Flux on September 8th. Here’s a brief synopsis:

SKYSHIP ACADEMY: THE PEARL WARS

A devastated Earth’s last hope is found in Pearls: small, mysterious orbs that fall from space, and are capable of supplying enough energy to power entire cities. Battling to control the Pearls are the Skyship dwellers—political dissidents who live in massive ships in the Earth’s stratosphere—and the corrupt Surface government.

Jesse Fisher, a Skyship brat, and Cassius Stevenson, a young Surface operative, cross paths when they both venture into forbidden territory in pursuit of Pearls. Their chance encounter triggers an unexpected reaction, endowing each boy with remarkable—and dangerous—abilities that their respective governments would stop at nothing to possess. Enemies thrust together with a common goal, Jesse and Cassius make their way to the ruins of Seattle to uncover the truth about their new powers, the past they didn’t know they shared, and a shocking secret about the Pearls.

Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?

The SKYSHIP ACADEMY series takes place in a future America devastated by bombings that have ramped up global warming to a nearly unlivable level. Also, as a result of political disagreements, the country has fragmented into three factions:

– the Skyship community, who make their home in city-sized ships in Earth’s stratosphere

– the Chosen Cities, overseen by the corrupt Unified Party

– the Fringes, a lawless desert where the poor and forgotten eke out a living

What should readers know before stepping into your world?

Those are the basics, but I have an “Academy Database” that’s updated every Sunday on my Facebook page (just search “Skyship Academy” on FB) and on my official site and it will reveal more information up until the book’s release in September.

Are there any special events, panels or galleys you are looking forward to?

I wish I could say there was something specific, but being a newbie I’m just excited to be there and experience everything!

Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran?  Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

This is my first time. Any pointers?

Will you be doing an autograph signing at the expo? Any other fun stuff on your agenda?

I will be signing ARCs on the morning of Thursday, May 26th from 10:30-11:30 at Flux’s booth (#2525), so stop by and say hi (and grab a copy!). I’m also going to be one of the guest authors at the Teen Author Carnival on the afternoon of Monday the 23rd.

What other projects are you working on that you would like to tell us about?

Right now I am working on the second book in the SKYSHIP ACADEMY series, which will be released in the fall of 2012.
