Tappity tappity done!

Aaaaaaaaand the rough draft of Silver is in the bag. Veterans of my blog will know that this is not the end, far from it. A read-over and edit is needed before it even goes to my editor, who will edit it some more, and we’ll go back and forth for a bit before it’s […]

Darian Frey in Cage Match Action!

So for those who didn’t know already, the folks at Suvudu.com do a contest every year in which characters from SF and Fantasy series battle it out for survival, and they win according to who gets the most fan votes. And this year Darian Frey is in the mix! I fully expect him to get […]

New YA Covers for Ketty Jay

Cover reveal! Cover reveal! Follow this link to the Gollancz blog where you’ll get a look at the new edition YA Ketty Jay books. My publishers decided that a slightly younger audience would also benefit from a dose of swashin’ and bucklin’ and some light air piracy. Why let adults have all the fun? Now panic […]

Forum!

Sometime approximately 10 minutes after the birth of the solar system I promised that I was going to put up a link on this site to a forum about little old me that the very lovely Kath (aka Maliris) has been running since, er, approximately 9 minutes after the birth of the solar system. Well, […]

Pandemonium!!!!!

Waaaa! Don’t you just want to run around waving your hands in the air and yelling nonsense? No? Oh, ok. Well then, allow me to inform you that Pandemonium has been released in the US.

The hawk-eyed among you, or those who spend every free moment on Amazon googling my name (bless your little hearts), might have spotted the curious fact that, like, there’s this book out by me that I’ve barely even mentioned. Well, here’s the lowdown: I wrote PALE a while ago for an imprint called Barrington Stoke, […]

Golems. We like ’em.

“A golem is a sturdy creature on which to hang a young-adult story; the figure asks perennial teenage questions: Who am I in the world? What powers do I have? Whom can I trust? How do I create a separate existence from my parents’? How do I control my anger and manage my baser instincts?” […]

New Gollancz Blog

Just a quickie to let you know that the publisher of the ever so fine Tales Of The Ketty Jay have a newly revamped website to go with all those shiny new SF Gateway books I told you about earlier. It’s still in its early stages – which is presumably why I DO NOT HAVE AN […]

Free Music? Why not?

Not particularly related to anything booky, but sort of related to me which is why it’s here. Back in the day before my ears caved in I used to play in a few bands, like. And now I hear that Bombed Out, the record label that my last band was on, has just put out […]

Football Manager 2012 Released!!!! (also The Iron Jackal)

For those of you disinterested in the epic tale of how I led Notts County from League 2 obscurity to winning the quintuple back-to-back, you might perk up at the news that the third book in The Tales Of The Ketty Jay hit the shelves yesterday. If you’re unfortunate enough not to live in the […]
