The Lost Clone 2 launches in one week!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to remind you all that the sequel to Replacement launches in one week! I had a lot of fun writing Batchmate, which is full of twists and turns, explosions, and neat sci-fi details. I also got to write some of my favorite character moments yet. I can’t wait to hear what you think of the book!

You can preorder the ebook edition of Batchmate here, or look for it on paperback and Kindle Unlimited on Friday, April 21st.

If you want a quick plot refresher, here’s a recent review of the book from Publishers Weekly:

Having been created by an unknown entity and subsequently abandoned in industrial, futuristic Grid City, 17-year-old human clone Jane worries that she’s the only one of her kind. She longs to meet others like her and spends her days taking classes to cultivate noteworthy talents that she hopes will help her find her purpose in life, but her insatiable curiosity and propensity for asking too many questions frequently get her in trouble. She is soon hired by corporate tycoon Henry Ironside to impersonate his son Isaac’s best friend Janie, who died mysteriously and who, unbeknownst to Isaac, was also a clone. The opportunity tests Jane’s grit, especially because this mission’s success could determine her entire future, but as she attempts to fit in at Isaac’s elite private school, the truth about Janie’s death comes to light, brewing fear that Jane might be next. Through an intriguing sci-fi lens, Rivet pensively forefronts contemporary concerns surrounding tech innovation, especially surveillance and privacy, job replacement, and widening income disparities. A fast-paced plot and genuine-feeling character relationships offer an immersive mystery complicated by dubious morals and intentionally unclear allegiances.
