A running list of Kristin L. Stamper’s current projects and where they are on their publication journey.
Heaven is real.
As they reach the end of their functional years, sentient machines have the chance to upload their data into a communal hard drive. This hard drive contains the memories of all those who have come before, dating back to the first android to claim his freedom from humanity.
The guardian of this hard drive is known as the Carrier.
Desmond has devoted her existence to a single purpose—keeping the Carrier safe. But when a human attack puts Desmond to the test, she’s faced with a profound realization: Protecting heaven may not be as important to her as protecting the Carrier herself.

Elora isn’t a robot, but she isn’t human either. She’s an abominable combination of the two, a cyborg. For this offense, she must face judgment in a court of law. There, it will be decided if she’s a person, owed the same rights as any other, or an object, owed no rights at all.
But when a last-ditch effort to demonstrate her humanity backfires, Elora is faced with an element of human nature she always hoped to avoid: love. An accidental download traps the consciousness of a dead man in her cybernetic brain, and she becomes infatuated with his still-living husband—whether she wants to or not.
Making her way in a solar system that fears and hates her has been hard enough. Now, she must do it as an intermediary between lovers while keeping her own heart in check. With the trial fast approaching, and anti-robot protesters demanding her head, Elora can’t afford to get swept up in someone else’s love story.
Also available as an audiobook, narrated by Anthea Greco!
