I want to thank everyone for jumping into this crazy contest with me in trying to get Soft Robotics published through Nerdist and Inkshares. Although we didn’t win, some super talented folks did and you should and definitely check out and order their books! As for Genevieve and her adventures, fear not! I am currently investigating other publishing avenues. I’m actually heading to Chicago for a week and traveling to Genevieve’s hometown will give me a much needed dose of inspiration on where to take her story next. You can bet you will see her very soon!

In the meantime check out my book Molding A Jurassic Universe, a collection of essays about the Jurassic Park franchise that was published by Thought Catalog earlier this year (http://thoughtcatalog.com/book/molding-a-jurassic-universe/). I also write a bunch about the Los Angeles comedy scene. Check out my latest interview with Emily V Gordon and her new book Super You out now (http://www.yaylamag.com/emily-v-gordon-on-making-a-super-you/)! And as always check out my site for any and all updates (http://www.stevenraymorris.com/), and better yet Twitter is the easiest way to stay in touch (https://twitter.com/StevenRayMorris). I also cohost a podcast about cats called The Purrrcast (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-purrrcast/id1041016803?mt=2). I know you’re going to check that one out. 

Thank you all again for your support. It really does mean the world to me. Speak soon!


It's less than one week left and I'm very grateful to everyone who's preordered my book and followed me along on this journey so far. I can't thank you enough! If you wouldn't mind spreading the word a bit in the final hour it sure would mean a bunch! Check out this link for a new cover design! http://stevenraymorris.tumblr.com/post/129857823593/theres-less-than-one-week-left-to-pre-order-soft

Hi Steven! It seems we're from the same area of the world. I'm in SLO. I just pre-ordered a copy of your book and wish you all the best. My son Robert Wren (Ophelia, Doll) is also a SLOvian. I hope you'll check out his book, too, and pre-order if you like it. I look forward to reading your book someday soon!

Starting a new series called Soft Robotics Roots where I cover my favorite records that influenced the music and the world of Soft Robotics. Check out the first entry on Angel Olsen's stunning record Burn Your Fire For No Witness: http://stevenraymorris.tumblr.com/post/128798099708/soft-robotics-roots-angel-olsens-burn-your-fire

Thank you all for the support so far! To celebrate week one of the contest I made a playlist of a few songs that inspire my main character's music: http://stevenraymorris.tumblr.com/post/127249332978/genevieves-quick-inspiration-mix-vol-1-im

Check it out! Tell your friends! Thank you again!
