Rahul Kanakia is the author of a contemporary YA novel called ENTER TITLE HERE (that's its actual name, guys) that' came out on August 2nd, 2016, from Disney-Hyperion. It's been described (by his agent, so you know this is a thoroughly impartial assessment) as GOSSIP GIRL meets HOUSE OF CARDS.
Rahul's short stories have appeared in Clarkesworld, Apex, Nature, and the Intergalactic Medicine Show. He holds an MFA in fiction from Johns Hopkins University. He also holds a BA in Economics from Stanford University. He used to work for the World Bank, in their South Asia Environment division.
If you want to receive very infrequent emails (fewer than one per month) about book releases or public events or other Rahul-related stuff, then sign up for my mailing list. Yes, it is extremely old-school and uncool to have a mailing list, but I am told that it's actually one of the most effective ways of marketing, since: a) it doesn't get lost amongst the chaff in the same way that a tweet or FB post does; and b) it builds buy-in, since the members of your mailing list feel invested in your success.
So, basically, this mailing list is to make sure I don't forget about everyone who's ever said, "I really want to buy your book when it comes out!"
