So, April 22nd is finally here, and that means The Moon King is finally available to bought by anyone who wants one. To be honest, after the excitement of the pre-release launch at Eastercon, it feels…not anticlimactic, but perhaps a bit lower key. Which is perfectly fine by me.

#2 : So, what is the deal with you and birds? Q:  The Moon King features some quite brutal white crows. I’ve read some of your other stories and birds crop up fairly regularly. Do you have some sort of obsession? A:  Guilty as charged. I was a bit of a junior twitcher when I was younger, and […]

#3 : The Cutting Room (Floor) Q:  You’ve mentioned before here that you edited The Moon King down from a considerably longer length in the early drafts. What do you regret not making the published novel?
