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 ­čśë […]

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!

Pandemonium, Braided Path, Other Stuff

So! Rather unexpectedly, a few weeks ago the artist for Pandemonium turned in pencil sketches for the entire graphic novel, all panelled out and everything. And they are totally hyper awesome. I danced. And, because I’m tragic, I ROFLcoptored at my own jokes, although in my defence I had forgotten them all as it’s been, […]

Progress Report #3456A/7

Alright boys and girls, Chris has been busy. So I’ve got seven chapters in the bag for the revamped version of The┬áIron Jackal. I’ve been faffing around with the title but I think I’m sticking with the one I’ve got now. The titular Iron Jackal wasn’t in the reworked version originally but I think I’m […]

Them’s The Breaks

Erk. So anyway, I wrote the first quarter of The Iron Jackal and then threw it in the bin and started again. Just goes to show, no matter how long you’re at this game, you can still get things wrong. ┬áIt’s terrifically hard to be objective about a novel that you’re writing; you’re just too […]

The Crooked Lanes Forum

So anyways, one day some forward-thinking people realised that discussions about my lovely books would be better facilitated by a forum. A lot of my newer┬áreaders won’t be aware of this, so I’m posting it up here until I can get round to doing a perma-link on the site. Therefore, for all your discussion needs, […]

Kneel, Pestilent English Serfs!

A vast nothingness to report. Iron Jackal has not moved on ’cause I’ve been writing the first draft of All Fall Down. Don’t fret, though, it’s still well in hand for the end of the year (he said, with the kind of blithe confidence that makes editors sweat and makes Chris wish he had an […]

New dates: Ret Falls: 26th April 2011 BLC: 26th August 2011 Or for those who don’t want to wait, you can buy them […]
