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:
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…
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!
