Warrior Bards series

 

I’m really happy to let you know that I’m working on a new historical fantasy series for adult readers, called Warrior Bards. The first novel, Harp of Kings, will be published by Penguin in the US in 2019, with two more books to follow. An audio book contract is looking very likely, and of course we are hoping the series will also be published in Australia and in other parts […]

Update on Dutch editions of Blackthorn & Grim

I’ve had a lot of queries from readers in the Netherlands about the Luitingh-Sijthoff editions of Tower of Thorns and Den of Wolves.  I’ve been advised by the publishers that they have put the Dutch edition of Tower of Thorns on hold because of lower than expected sales for Dreamer’s Pool and the Shadowfell series. I’m sad about this and I know my loyal Dutch readers are too, but there […]

Progress report

 

Apologies – it’s been a long time since I posted here. I’ll put up a separate post about my future travel plans and appearances soon.

The big question is, what am I working on now and when will it be published? I have two projects on the go, but I can’t tell you a whole lot about either until my agent has definite arrangements with the publishers in question.

The first project is […]

Books, Books and More Books

This double pile represents a small percentage of the mountain of fantasy works piled up all over my house at present. This year I am one of the five judges for the World Fantasy Awards. These awards are presented annually for the best fantasy works in English, spread over several categories – […]

Season’s Greetings and Thank You

 

Yes, it’s that time of year again, and we headed along to Pet Lover’s Cafe for a photo with a very long-suffering Santa. Reggie (on the left) is reacting to the photographer, Zen looks stately but disapproving, and Fergal is posing sweetly.  I left Pip and Bodhi at home – not brave enough to try for the five-dog image this time around.

It’s been an unproductive year for me writing-wise, with […]

Travel Report Dec 2016

 

Readers, I owe you an apology – it’s now two and a half weeks since I got home from the US, and I’ve been too tired and jet-lagged to post about my trip or to thank the various people who were so lovely and helpful along the way.  The image above is of me reading from Den of Wolves at the Jolie Tea Company in Salem – it was taken […]
