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 […]

Honking Great Excerpt of Retribution Falls for your Eyes to Behold

As part of Suvudu.com‘s 50 page Friday promotion, you may now read the first FIVE CHAPTERS of Retribution Falls free, in celebration of its imminent release in the US. Oh yes. 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 […]

YA Genre Fiction: Who Needs It?

So I was sifting through my documents folder on my Hyper Awesome iMac of Destiny (+1, +5 vs Books) and I came across an old article that I did for Sci-Fi Now magazine sometime last year. So I figured I’d stick it up here to keep you guys happy till I finish my book 😉 […]

Maintain Holding Pattern

Not a vast amount of news, since I’ve been buried in The Iron Jackal, but let me magic something up. Am on, er, chapter 39 of about 46 now. Bombing through it. It’ll probably be about the same length as The Black Lung Captain when I’m done – I may yet go back and cut […]

A Bunch of Stuff

Frosty Christmas Updates! I’m over half way through The Iron Jackal and motoring. Still looking good for an August release, although it will require some heroics from the editorial team and production department behind the scenes. Pandemonium has been given a very tentative publication date of early 2012 in the US, possibly as early as […]

The Black Lung Captain makes Amazon UK’s list of the 10 Best SF/Fantasy Books of 2010

Well, it did! In your face, Universe!
