A lot of people have been asking me when the audio version of Dead Men’s Bones would be available. All the other books have come out in this format at the same time as the paperback, but the rapid turnaround of manuscript – handed in at the beginning of January and out a scant 6 […]
August is here already. How did that happen? I should have known, of course. It usually comes right after July. That doesn’t make things any easier though. I have finished the first draft of Inspector McLean book five – Ceremony – and that is a good thing. Unfortunately it’s only the first draft. I’d hoped […]
I can’t believe it’s almost July already. I’ve been meaning to post about this for ages, but time has been so short it could get a starring role in the remake of Time Bandits. I’ve been busy writing McLean book five – still searching for a suitable title – and preparing the first three Benfro […]
It took long enough to come up with a title for the book, but almost as soon as I finally managed, my editor sent me the initial cover art. I thought it was great, and said so. I didn’t share it with the world though, as these things are often subject to change, and generally […]
I don’t think I’ve ever done a review of the year before. Mostly it’s been about tying up loose ends before saying goodbye to the old and hello to the new. But 2013 has been such a ride, I feel it needs looking back at, just to be sure it really happened. 2012 was itself […]
The end of an exhausting week for me. I’ll be workshopping (is that even a word?), reading and generally dispensing advice of dubious usefulness to all and sundry. Things begin at 1.30 PM and carry on into the dark. Details here.
This time with the redoubtable Russel D McLean. We’ll be having a chat like you’re not there, and probably reading extracts from each others books in silly voices. Come along if you’re feeling indulgent. Details here. Kick off is 7.00 PM
As if Stirling wasn’t enough, Allan Guthrie and I will be appearing in Stirling the very next day. This time talking about getting published and other stuff. Possibly Maine Coon cats. It kicks of at 7.30 PM – more details here.
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 […]
