Pete's 2016

2016 was weird. In terms of global and national news (which I'm not going to talk about here, I promise!) it was one of the worst I can remember and yet for me, personally and professionally, it was an excellent year.

Books that happened:

The Vagrant (US release)
The Vagrant (UK Paperback)
Landfall (Albion Online novel)
The Malice (UK Hardback)

A novellette that happened:

The Hammer and the Goat (ebook)

Other cool things:

The Vagrant was shortlisted for a British Fantasy Award and it won the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for best newcomer! Which on its own was wonderful but also led to my favourite picture being taken.

 

 

 

I was also pretty chuffed about this:

(For The Vagrant)

 

And, those lovely folks at Harper Voyager picked up my new trilogy, The Deathless. The first book will appear sometime in 2018 and I will talk more about this in the future…

Mushy moment

People continued to be generally lovely throughout the year, in person and online. And given the things we're not talking about here, I wanted to say how important that was to me. Looking forward to spending more time with you all in 2017!
