I’m busy polishing Thief’s Magic, making that book shine and sparkle, so I may be a bit quiet here for a while. I’ll be Tweeting my progress, though, along with the usual Twitter silliness.
The postman brought this one to my door last week: Italian readers can now find out what happens a the end of the Traitor Spy Trilogy, with the release of The Traitor Queen. Enjoy!
A couple of foreign editions have arrived in the post lately: A Brazillian The High Lord… … and a Spanish The Traitor Queen. Both the final book in their respective trilogies. I hope my Brazillian and Spanish readers enjoy them! (And a little bird on Twitter tells me that La Regina Dei Maghi, the Italian [...]
“Which order should I read your books in?” is a question I’m often asked. Though I’ve answered it here before, I’m posting again for new readers. To someone wanting to try my work it’s not obvious where to begin. I’ve tried to write most of my books so that if there are only a few [...]
Things are quiet here at the moment. I’m working away on Thief’s Magic whenever the weather isn’t stupidly hot, and my New Year resolution to read more traditional fantasy (after a couple of years of sampling around the edges – steampunk, urban fantasy, fantasy knit lit).
For the last year or so I’ve been checking to see which of my books were available as ebooks in the Australasian region. A few months ago I got in contact with the lovely people at HarperCollins to see if anything could be done to get the missing ones to show up. Well, after some [...]

So apparently it has debut at no 1 on the Sunday Times Bestseller List. There were some very excited tweets, emails and calls last week, and some sparkling wine to celebrate. I’m wondering if I should buy a subscription to a newspaper I’m not otherwise going to read (since I don’t live in the UK [...]
The release date of The Traitor Queen (in August) is slowly and steadily drawing near. I now have a cover to show off: Fabulous, as always. I think this is my favourite cover for this trilogy now. Orbit posted a Cover Reveal last week, with more information, and you can go to the
