Signing at Forbidden Planet on the 23rd June

Title says it all, really. I’ll be doing another book signing at Forbidden Planet on Shaftesbury Avenue in London on the 23rd of the month, which is a Thursday. ย Other eminent SF/Fantasy authors who may want to scratch you with their pens on the day will include, but are not limited to, Tom Lloyd, Jaine […]

Alt Fiction

So I’ve been writing all kinds of secret little projects while waiting for my editor to get back to me with The Iron Jackal edits, which you may hear about in time if anything comes of them ๐Ÿ˜‰ Meantime, let me tell you about another convention at which I shall be doing some general panel-bothering […]

New Braided Path Cover

Yesss! I know, I know, some people out there have a problem with the recent trend of hooded dudes on the covers of fantasy books. Well, I’ve never had a hooded dude on one of mine, and it’s about time I did. Plus the Weavers look way badass. So there ๐Ÿ˜›

Babel Clash

Just a quickie: I’m guest blogging with Kevin Hearne over at Babel Clash for the next 10 days or so. If you’re starved of blog posts here, go have a look ๐Ÿ˜‰

Signed, sealed, delivered…

Actually, those first two words were a lie. It was neither signed, nor sealed, unless you mean by the cosy electronic non-security of cyberspace. But The Iron Jackal is now in the paws of my editor, and I’m about to head off to Eastercon, and it’s April and somehow the sun is shining. I feel […]

New Braided Path Delayed Till July 21st

Publishing books is a complicated affair, involving lots of departments all trying to get their ducks in a row, so it’s a writer’s lot to see their books delayed from time to time. I’ve just got the news that the Braided Path reissue – a shiny shiny gorgeous hardcover edition – has been bumped back […]

If you haven’t bought it already (why not? hmm?), check it out here. The Iron Jackal will be delivered to my editor in the […]

Done! (Random machine gun rampage to follow)

The Iron Jackal is finished. And by finished, I mean it’s halfway done. Now comes the editing, trimming, sending to my editor and agent, and the mildly nervous wait to find out if it’s any good. And after that, more editing, honing and polishing, until I’m thoroughly sick of it. Those of you that have […]

Iron Jackal Delayed Until October

I know, I know. I did my level best to get the damn thing in on time. In fact, as it turns out, it’ll probably only be about two weeks late once I’ve edited it all. But myself and my editor, well, we just think the schedule is too tight now, and so it is […]

Retribution Falls Kindle Edition Price Drop

As was pointed out by a keen-eyed poster a few weeks ago, Retribution Falls for the Kindle was an unusually pricey beast. So I did some chasing and pestering and my editor unleashed her Hounds Of Doom ™ from their stygian pens, and after a bit of toing and froing you’ll be pleased to know […]
