Hey everyone! I’m excited to share with you the book trailer for Zeroboxer by Fonda Lee (Flux, April 8th, 2015). First, here’s the cover and synopsis:
A rising star in the weightless combat sport of zeroboxing, Carr “the Raptor” Luka dreams of winning the championship title. Recognizing his talent, the Zero Gravity Fighting Association assigns Risha, an ambitious and beautiful Martian colonist, to be his brandhelm––a personal marketing strategist. It isn’t long before she’s made Carr into a popular celebrity and stolen his heart along the way.
As his fame grows, Carr becomes an inspirational hero on Earth, a once-great planet that’s fallen into the shadow of its more prosperous colonies. But when Carr discovers a far-reaching criminal scheme, he becomes the keeper of a devastating secret. Not only will his choices place everything he cares about in jeopardy, but they may also spill the violence from the sports arena into the solar system.

Now, here’s an introduction from the author, Fonda Lee!
This isn’t your usual book trailer. Instead, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite parts of writing Zeroboxer: envisioning and depicting the sport of zeroboxing. How would a combat sport work in the absence of gravity? Check out what these martial artists and fighters have to say about it.
Then enter the giveaway for a chance to win a prize pack (pictured below) of six science fiction and fantasy books from Flux / Llewellyn, including an ARC of Zeroboxer, which releases on April 8!
And now here’s the trailer! Enjoy!
As mentioned in her introduction, we also have a giveaway to share with you, thanks to Fonda! To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter below:
Enamored with science fiction and fantasy from an early age, Fonda wrote her first novel (about a young dragon and assorted magical companions on a quest for a magic pendant) in fifth grade during the long bus ride to and from school each day. Many years later, she cast her high school classmates as characters in her second novel, a pulpy superhero saga co-written with a friend by passing a graphing calculator back and forth during biology class. Fortunately, both of these experiments are lost to the world forever.
Fonda is a long-time, avid martial artist in karate and kung fu. She goes mad for smart action movies (think The Matrix, Inception, and Minority Report). She loves a good eggs benedict. A corporate strategist by training, Fonda has advised or worked for a number of Fortune 500 firms (including a certain global sports company). ZEROBOXER is inspired by all of these things, except the eggs benedict.
Born and raised in Calgary, Canada, Fonda has lived in Toronto, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Portland, Oregon—the city she and her family now call home.
