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 […]
You know those weeks where something marvellous and something not very marvellous happen at the same time? Well, last week I twisted my ankle so badly my doctor and physio sent me for a second x-ray a week later because it looked like I’d broken it. (I hadn’t, but boy did I have some impressive […]
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 […]

I don’t envy the challenge my publishers have faced, coming up with the cover for Thief’s Magic. The new series needed a look that related to my previous covers yet also moved in a new direction. What they’ve come up with is brilliant: It connects many of the elements in the story, from the sentient […]
Yep, the first book of the Black Magician Trilogy, The Magicians’ Guild, is part of the Amazon Summer Sale. If you live in the UK you can pick it up for just £1.99!
Today The Traitor Queen was released in paperback. Yay! To mark the occasion, my publisher has written a lovely post over at the Orbit blog that has some amazing facts and figures for my books, none that would be so amazing if it weren’t for all my wonderful fans. My revamped Facebook page is looking […]
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.
