That Blog Tour – Latest

Posted on

Well, this is going to be rather amazing. I’m really chuffed that so many people have offered to have me on their blog over the month of September. It’s going to be a bit like Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour. Except not quite so strenuous. And with less singing. So much better all round, then. […]

So It’s All Real, Then

Posted on

 Apologies in advance, but this is the obligatory “My copies of my book have arrived! Squeeeeee!” post, postponed from Friday when I didn’t have time to write it. So then. My copies of my book have arrived! Squeeeeee! Right, that’s over. However, do brace yourselves for some time on Thursday when – with any luck […]

It’s All Happening…

Posted on

So then. On Monday, my publishers took delivery of the first copies of the book. And today it seems that WHSmith are showing it as “In stock” in their online store, even though the official publication date isn’t until next Thursday. So it must be real, although I won’t actually believe it until I manage to […]

I originally wrote this during a charity write-a-thon thing – one of those things where you try and write a new piece every hour, and […]

T Minus 2 and a Bit Weeks…

Posted on

… and I haven’t got a coherent blog post for you, I’m afraid. I’m alternating between feelings of wild elation and the feelings of a particularly confused rabbit frozen in the headlights right now, so coming up with anything remotely sensible is beyond me. September’s blog tour is taking shape nicely, though, with a wide […]

Heron Issue 5

Posted on

Way back in March I had an e-mail from Folded Word, asking me if I’d like to write issue 5 of their occasional broadside Heron. Folded Word are the people who produce PicFic (regular readers may remember this, as well as this) and I like their quirky approach to finding new ways to present fiction […]

The Unsleepers

Posted on

… is now up at The View from Here. Like most of the things I’ve written lately, I’m not entirely sure where this came from. Certainly when I started writing, I didn’t have a clue where it was heading, but I was quite pleased when the ending presented itself. Anyway, it’s nice to be in […]
