Says it all, really! I’ll be lurking at Eastercon on Saturday & Sunday.

I’m trucking along with The Iron Jackal. Five chapters done out of a predicted forty or so. Ah, it’s so comforting getting back to the world of the Ketty Jay. Like shucking on an old overcoat and finding a dog-end and half a pack of Polos in the pockets.

In other news, I have a new movie project on the go. It’s one of those behind-the-scenes things I was darkly hinting about in previous posts, but since the deal is all but done now, there’s no need for secrecy any more. Brilliant Films – the guys who are doing Malice – have snapped up a movie idea of mine, tentatively titled All Fall Down. They’re signing me up to do a first draft and we’ll see where it goes from there. It’s a thriller/suspense movie, not fantasy or sf at all, which is kind of a welcome break for me; but I’m keeping the story close to my chest, so that’s all I’m telling you for now 😉

Apologies to everyone I haven’t replied to in the comments sections; I’ll be getting to you soon, honest.

    That is great news!!!

    Enjoy this year’s Eastercon. I, sadly, won’t be able to come. Maybe I’ll manage next time… 😉

    Movie-news: Fingers crossed! You know that I’m dying to watch a film you wrote. 😀

  2. So am I!

    Shame about Eastercon, specially since it’s right by Heathrow this year. It seems that they do every other year in nice, accessible London, with the year in between being set in the wilds of Scotland / underneath a railway bridge / in the heart of a volcano. Am looking forward to finding out next year’s location 😉

    which book is becoming a movie?

  4. Marie says:

    Can’t wait to see how the new movie turns out! It’s Malice, am I correct? I love the book and can’t wait for Havoc to arrive in the bookstores in the U.S. Any idea when that’s going to occur? 😉

  5. Meghan says:

    Same as Marie, I’m curious as to when Havoc is coming out in US bookstores. I hear May 3rd is the release date, but I have a hunch that it’s the UK release date…

  6. I thought it was May 3rd in the US, but now it’s showing October 1st on Amazon, so I’d guess that’s right. You’d think I’d know, but no-one tells me anything 😉

    Just buy it from if you can’t wait: shipping to the US is free.

  7. Taylor says:

    I was wondering if May 1st was the release date for Havoc was also the same for Canada.I was wondering what you were planning to do for the casting for Malice???????}the movie!!Because I would love to be in it I already have a resume!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OMG!!!!please e-mail me back!!!}You rock!!!

    Taylor K <3 🙂 🙂 🙂

  8. Meghan says:

    Thank you so much for the link! Lord knows I don’t have enough patience to wait until October.

  9. Taylor says:

    I hope the release date May 3rd(not may 1st)is also the same for Canada because im going to the book store today and im going to look fro it and buy it.!!!please e-mail me back about the casting!!! <3 -Taylor K 🙂 🙂 🙂

  10. Summer says:

    That is awesome! Wish I could go…but alas, I am, well, American. So….
    Oh and not to be creepy, but well…you are rather handsome, eh?
    I’m glad your script got picked up but I can’t get excited about Malice. I just don’t think it’ll work. 🙁

  11. Keith says:

    I cant wait for the movie it will be great. Oh do you plan to try to turn any other books into movies because I say the weavers of saramyr would make an insane movie maybe even better than avatar.

  12. Souher says:

    I really would love to see a film of Storm thief!!! But If you all ready haven’t picked your cast for I’d absolutely love to play Justin xoxoxoxo Pwetty please xD
