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 […]

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

 

Yoda has been using the Force to help me sort out some books. Rather a lot of 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 […]

Progress Report November 2015

Hi all and apologies for not posting more regularly. I am really under the pump work-wise just now with the manuscript for Blackthorn & Grim Book 3 due to be submitted by the (extended) deadline of late January, so I am not attending to my social media very well. I have done a recent interview with the lovely Anne Gracie for Word Wenches, where she and I discuss Dreamer’s Pool, […]

Progress Report: July 2015

Half way through the year already – where has the time gone? Blackthorn & Grim book 3 is due in at the end of 2015 and I still have quite a bit of it to write.

It’s relatively rare for a novelist to make a living at it. Most of us have day jobs and/or a partner contributing to the family finances. Many professional writers have children to look after, and although we love […]
