UK Signings

 [Posted 27-Sep-2010]

I'll soon be in the UK to look at castles, research for the next big project -- The Tarnished Crown quintet.

And while I'm there I'll be doing a couple of signings. Both are on Saturday October 30th.

First of all I'll be at Waterstones in Woking, Surrey, for a lunchtime appearance. And then I'll be at Forbidden Planet in Shaftesbury Avenue for an afternoon/evening signing.

Details of the Forbidden Planet appearance here .  For information about my Waterstsone's appearance, you can call them on 0843 290 8697.

Jennifer Rardin

Sad news this week, with word coming that popular urban fantasy author Jennifer Rardin passed away on Monday. This was totally unexpected, and has greatly shocked and grieved her family, friends and many fans.

My condolences and prayers to all those who knew and loved her.

Breaking the silence

 [Posted 20-Sep-2010]

Life and deadlines have swallowed me alive. So what else is new, I hear you wonder? Well, not much. Because life and deadlines have swallowed me alive!

I'm in the closing stretch of Blight of Mages right now. Then I hunker down for the rough draft of the next Rogue Agent book. Both of these are out next year. After that I take care of the final touches to Blight, rework RA#4, and get down to some serious research for the Tarnished Crown quintet. After several years of unremitting slog I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a great few years, but the pace is starting to wear on me. Time to get some of that work/life balance the gurus are always on about!

This time next month I shall be romping around the UK looking at castles. Part of the aforementioned research. I shall also be doing a couple of signings. Stay tuned for a formal announcement ...
