Thief’s Magic Is Out There!

Reports of Thief’s Magic arriving in bookstores and reader’s homes have been popping up in my Twitter notifications feed, so I think we can officially say it’s out there in the big wide world. But it is being released on different dates in different places. In Australia and Poland it was officially out yesterday. In […]

Winner of the Thief’s Magic Proof Copies

Unlike last year, nobody came to Supanova dressed as a character from my books – at least none that came up to me at the author stand for a photo – so I’ve decided to give both of the proof copies to entrants who sent photos via email. I numbered the entries chronologically, then went […]

Thief’s Magic Cover Reveal

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 […]

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.

In the Mailbox: Italian The Traitor Queen

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!

In the Mailbox: Brazilian & Spanish Editions

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 […]

Book Reading Order

“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 […]

Summer

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).
