Reba Birmingham is your tour guide to Merryville, California. Her debut Novel, Floodlight, has been delighting readers since it was published. This site will introduce you to bonus material on her characters, upcoming events and allow you to purchase from the comfort of your home. Happy Reading!
"In this first novel in a projected fantasy series, debut novelist Birmingham’s LGBTQ representation among the cast is refreshing. She parallels the fictional cult with the patriarchy, and she compares interspecies relationships in the fantasy world with LGBTQ relationships in ours" - Kirkus Review
Announcement from Reba Birmingham, August 4th, 2018
Okay, big changes behind the scenes. I have had quite a wonderful journey with book one so far. Now I am regrouping and going cocoon for a minute or two to prepare: the Second Edition of Floodlight and the Sequel, to be released in 2019.
Until now, I have always wondered from my favorite authors why things take so long. WHEN is the next one coming?? It seemed the fastest anyone could do is one book a year. I am like this with Karin Slaughter and Patricia Cornwell (I know, but I still love her).
Being a writer you must learn about all kinds of things that have nothing to do with immersing your head in the other worlds we authors know really do exist. (Shhhhh). Beta Readers, Editors, Publishers, Marketing, Contracts, Award Seasons. . . but it comes with the territory. And, ehem, I also have a full time job.
The next book is currently called, "Words on a Plate" and follows Mitzi and Panda on a trek into Peru. It is longer than the first and has made it through the first edit. Stories have a life of their own, and I know you will enjoy it even more for the delay. Thank you for being a reader, authors would cease to exist without you.
Until such time as the 2nd Edition of Floodlight is released, it will only be available through the contact form on this page.
