A beautiful, perfect thing arrived in my inbox a few days ago: The cover of Angel of Storms! I am in awe of the talents of my publisher’s designers and artists. They’ve captured the mystery and magic of the worlds and characters of the Millennium’s Rule Trilogy once again.
Thanks to the efforts of my publicist at Hachette Australia, and in celebration of the paperback release of Thief’s Magic, we’re heading off on a blog tour today. Visit the blogs below and you will find reviews, interviews, guest posts by moi, and competitions to win copies of the book. 10th June: First up, we’re […]
Another lovely surprise arrived in the mail a few days ago: copies of the French edition of Thief’s Magic: These coincide with the release of the book, just in time for Trolls & Légendes. I’m getting excited about this festival now, and looking forward to meeting fans there.
Hot on the heels of the Time Trips anthology, another book I have a story in arrived on my doorstep: The Year’s Best Australian Fantasy and Horror 2013 contains my story “Camp Follower”. To have a story selected for a “Year’s Best” anthology is doubly flattering and exciting. It’s like winning an award AND receiving […]

A quick post to let you know I will be at Trolls & Légendes in Belgium this Easter. I am very excited to be a part of the festival! Then, a little later in April, I will be visiting Poland. I don’t know if there are any details out yet about it, so keep an […]
I am happy (relieved and a little scared) to report that Angel of Storms, book two of the Millennium’s Rule series, has been submitted to the publisher. Despite there being a million distractions and delays (illness, buying/selling/moving/fixing houses) I’ve had a fabulous time writing this book. It’s always been a delight to work on. There’s […]
Surfacing for air for a moment to let you know that I’ll be at the Brisbane Writers Festival this weekend. I’m doing a talk, a workshop and a panel. I’m looking forward to getting out into the real world for a little while, though I may have to sneak back to my hotel room to […]
The last couple of months I’ve been either nursing a head cold or rushing about trying to get what I planned to do done as well as what I failed to do when nursing a head cold. It’s been awesome (apart from the cold) and can I say a big “THANK YOU” to everyone who […]
The Sunday after the launch I headed down to Chelsea to Notions Unlimited for a signing event. I love Chuck’s store. I’m a sucker for any bookstore dedicated to science fiction, fantasy and horror, and Notions Unlimited has an extra cosy atmosphere. Maybe it’s because Chuck is so friendly and welcoming. Maybe it’s the couches […]
