My latest novel is Attack Surface, a sequel to my bestselling Little Brother books. @washingtonpost called it "a political cyberthriller, vigorous, bold and savvy about the limits of revolution and resistance."

My ebooks and audiobooks (from @torbooks, @HoZ_Books, @mcsweeneys, and others) are for sale all over the net, but I sell 'em too, and when you buy 'em from me, I earn twice as much and you get books with no DRM and no license "agreements."

My first picture book is out! It's called Poesy the Monster Slayer and it's an epic tale of bedtime-refusal, toy-hacking and monster-hunting, illustrated by Matt Rockefeller. It's the monster book I dreamt of reading to my own daughter.

@pluralistic I notice that many of your images have no #captions and as a #blind #screenreader user I always appreciate that even if it's a minimal description, though of course more is better.
It's not just #VI users who appreciate them either, it's also people on low bandwidth connections or strict dataplans, and some #autistic people find the context they provide to be useful.
Several instances now offer automatic #OCR as an option which can help [though manual proofreading is always a good idea] and you can also follow @PleaseCaption to be reminded if you forget to caption an image when posting.
Thanks!
