I’m excited to be able to do my first ever eligibility post, as I managed to publish two books last year. (Like the rest of you, my actual writing output for 2020 was greatly curtailed by lockdowns and doomscrolling, ugh.) So, from the department of nothing ventured, nothing gained, here I go:
Echoes of Another
Published in April by Fractal Moose Press, this is a near future sci-fi novel. Kirkus Reviews was kind enough to say that: “Clarke’s lush prose envisions a future both alien and utterly believable…”
I have a Big Idea post up on John Scalzi’s blog if you’d like to know some of the background for this work. https://whatever.scalzi.com/2020/04/08/the-big-idea-chandra-k-clarke/
Echoes is available through Kindle Unlimited if you’re on that, and also as a paperback. Oh, and there’s an audiobook too, narrated by the Emmy-award winningLinks:

Pundragon came out in August, and it is also through Fractal Moose Press. A humorous fantasy, readers have favourably compared it to Sir Terry Pratchett’s work (squee!). Diane Donovan (Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review) said: “Clarke crafts a whimsical, fun blend of intrigue and personal discovery that will delight fantasy readers…”
