There hasn’t been a week since I self-published the first three books in The Ballad of Sir Benfro when someone hasn’t contacted my through email, Twitter, Facebook or comments here asking when book four, The Broken World, is coming out. My intention last year (was it only last year?) was to finish the third McLean […]
I blame Andrew Reid. He’s the one who came up with the idea. Later on this week it’s World Fantasy Con in Brighton, and eleven (say it like Burnistoun – Eleven) of Literary Agent Extraordinaire Juliet Mushens’ clients will be in attendance. I am proud to count myself amongst them. As well as being World […]
Searching for a file for a short story I’ll be posting here soon as part of the Halloween Shorts: Team Mushens WFC2013 Editions, I stumbled upon a word document from 2005 enigmatically titled ‘Future Projects’. There are only two stories in there, and I can’t remember who I put it together for – possibly my […]
Cross-posting from over at Sir Benfro again… They say trouble comes in threes. I’m not sure who they are, and if I ever find out I’ll probably punch them on the nose, but they appear to be right, at least this time. A little history. Almost three years ago now, I moved up to Fife […]
Cross-posting from over at the Sir Benfro blog: It’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything here. I expect no one looks any more, and the RSS Readers will probably have given up too. The problem is, life got just too busy to blog. I’ve started about a dozen posts in the last three […]
Look what just arrived from those lovely people at Penguin (or should that be Random Penguin?): The manuscript has been handed in, and publication is due early next year. Keep an eye out for more news soon.
These beauties dropped through my letterbox earlier this week. Proper, real copies of Natural Causes, exactly the same as will be appearing shortly in a bookstore near you. I have to say I had a bit of a squee moment when I saw them – very grown up and proper. Publication day is May 9th, […]
I guest-blogged at the wonderful Do Some Damage yesterday, filling in for Russel D McLean whilst he was away in Paris, jazzing it up. Make with the clicky to see what I was wittering on about.
Those busy bees at Michael Joseph have been hard at work on new covers for the print editions of Natural Causes and The Book of Souls. Looking good, I think. Natural Causes will be available in the UK from May 9th, with The Book of Souls coming out in early July. US readers, alas, […]
Those lovely people at BBC Scotland came out to the farm and interviewed me about my books. Of course, it wasn’t enough to just film me at my desk, where I write. No, they had to come outside and get shots with the livestock too. Those lucky sheep got about three times as much feed […]
