April 18, 2014

0

#1 : Seriously? Luck monkeys? Q:  Forget the crows, and the invasion of giant crabs, where the hell did the idea of luck monkeys come from? A:  *shrugs happily* What? What do you expect me to say to that? Sometimes the gods of inspiration just give you a gift. I mean who doesn’t wish that monkey really did […]

#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?

Moon King Trivia #5 : The Lunane

April 14, 2014

With a week to go until The Moon King is officially published, with the Eastercon launch event happening on Friday AND today being the day that you can now also get it for your Kindle, it thought it’d be cool to have a bit of a count down. I couldn’t think of anything cool to actually *do* […]

In case of book launch…

March 17, 2014

So, as April (and The Moon King) approaches, the pre-launch ducks continue to be put in rows. This weekend’s task was Choosing A Reading Passage. In case, you know, an occasion should arise where a reading might be called for (and there might, there might…I’m working on it). This is a new challenge for me. When […]

Half a year has gone since I got the news that NewCon Press wanted to publish The Moon King. Gone. Like that *snaps fingers*. Half a year left to go before we launch it at Eastercon in Glasgow. But for those that can’t wait a mere click of the fingers (or six months, whichever is […]

The Late Next Big Thing

March 15, 2013

2

Towards the end of last year a meme flurried through the writing community called The Next Big Thing. The point of it was to allow folks to wax a little about their newest project and, by name checking other writers to take part, share the boost a little. Nice idea, and I enjoyed reading about […]
