General Updateyness

Yes, I’ve been away for a long while, haven’t I? First it was Japan & China (and blessedly off the Internet for most of it) and then when I came back I began furiously working oooooon…. Can’t tell you. Yeah, yeah, sorry. This is more a post to let you know I’m still alive than […]

Silver Promo Video

2nd May! As ever, The¬†Book Depository¬†is your friend if you don’t live in the UK. Free postage worldwide. Probably cheaper than waiting for it to come out in your own country. The eagle-eyed among you who’ve been reading the comments will also note that I’ve also been asked to be a Guest of Honour at […]

US release dates for The Iron Jackal and The Ace of Skulls

At last, info for my news-hungry US readers! Titan Books will be publishing The Iron Jackal in March 2014, and The Ace of Skulls in August 2014. US ebook versions will presumably be simultaneous. As ever, if you can’t wait till then, Bookdepository.co.uk is your friend.

By which I mean I’ve actually delivered it now, all edited and everything. Almost exactly a year after I started plotting it. Man, this one took me a long time! As ever, the feeling of delivery is actually kinda anticlimactic. I email it away to my editor, I look around the empty room a bit, […]

Word Counts

Out of interest: Retribution Falls: 133,423 The Black Lung Captain: 158,801 The Iron Jackal: 174,904 The Ace Of Skulls (rough draft): 183,609 See the trend there? I’m sure there must be some equation for this. I’m a zesty campaigner versus bloat in F/SF books, and I’m very aware in my own books that any scene […]

The Ace of Skulls is done!

Yes, you heard me.¬†The Ace of Skulls is done. In fact, the whole¬†Ketty Jay series is done. To see it all come together at the end, payoffs that have been five years or so in the making, it’s all rather spooky. All those characters I’ve had in my head all that time. Wow. Those of […]
