A Wild 2018 Appears!

I had all these good intentions for 2018, and one of them was to spend a little more time here on the old blog. Unfortunately 2017 ended in flu and 2018 was upon us before I could say something pithy.

So, two weeks into the year and I’m finally crawling out of my plague pit. How is it 2018 already? How are we in the middle of January? How is this even remotely fair?

Ahem.

However, some cool things have already happened, and there are some cool things on the horizon too, some of which I can mention here, and some that are still secret for the time being.

Everybody needs some werewolf romance in their lives.

I’ve narrated an audiobook for the one and only Gail Carriger!

It’s called ROMANCING THE WEREWOLF, is set in the world of her Parasol Protectorate books, and it was loads of fun to do. The great lady talks about it in more detail on her blog if you’re interested.

 

 

Beautiful cover by the beautiful Jaime Jones.

THE SEVEN has come out in Paperback!

It is done. It is over. Well, in some ways it isn’t (other versions have yet to come out in other countries) but for me, this is a milestone. I’m very proud of this book, and of The Vagrant Trilogy in general, and first books/series always hold a special place in the heart. That said, I try to evolve with each book, and so I’m very excited that…

 

 

 

Proofed and everything!

THE DEATHLESS launches in June!

New year, new trilogy, new story, new characters. For now I'll just say it’s about immortals that reincarnate through their own descendants, five legged dogs, floating castles and dark forests full of my take on fairy tale monsters. Cover news and launch news to follow, watch this space!

 

 

 

And there's more!

My story in the new WILDCARDS book, KNAVES OVER QUEENS, looks like it'll be coming out in May. I posted about it here.

I'm writing for Wild Cards!

In case you missed it, I'm going to be writing a story set in the Wild Cards universe for their new book called: KNAVES OVER QUEENS.

The book is set in the UK and features stories that run from 1946 to the present day.

For those of you who don't know, Wild Cards is a super hero universe which has been running since forever* and has twenty six volumes published at present (find out more here). It's masterminded by George R.R.** Martin and Melinda Snodgrass, and has had a whole constellation of fab writers contributing to it over the years.

There's a full announcement about it on George's Livejournal.

Alas, there is no official publication date yet but it'll be brought to you by Tor in the US and Harper Voyager in the UK.

It'll also be the first book published to contain stories written by me and Emma!💖💖💖💖 The full list of contributors to KNAVES OVER QUEENS is below, check them out:
