Thief’s Magic Character Illustration

If you’ve read my longer bio, you’ll know I am an artist and former illustrator. I like to draw my characters, and sometimes I’ll even paint scenes from the books. The maps for the Age of the Five trilogy feature characters from that story, and a few years ago I made some simple line drawings […]

Bookplate Offer

Do you run or work in a bookstore? Would your store like signed bookplates to give away at the release of Thief’s Magic? I’m putting together a limited number of bookplate packs, 24 in each, signed by me. They feature this lovely artwork by Laurence Peguy, a french illustrator, which suits all of the series […]

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 […]

Win an Uncorrected Proof of Thief’s Magic!

I have two uncorrected proof copies of Thief’s Magic to give away. (Now, before you read on, please understand that these are uncorrected copies. They don’t have had the last round of proofing applied. If you don’t mind this, then if you win you will get to read the book before everyone else. Well, except […]

Win Win!

While I was in the UK I delivered to my publisher some signed bookmarks and sets of badges (made by me!) for them to use as prizes on the Facebook fanpage. They’re up for grabs now. All you have to do is tell them why you love reading my books in 250 characters or less. […]

New Badges! More Swag!

Paul and I have been hard at work making these: Back in 2011 I gave away badges, designed by me and printed by my publisher, at Supanova Melbourne and in the UK. They were so popular I decided I’d have to look into having an ongoing supply of them. Turns out the cheapest way for […]

New Swag: Character Sketch Bookmarks

I have a new bookmark design to bring to signing events along with the quote ones: It features the character sketches from my Sekrit Project – the free computer wallpaper calendars I made last year. I’d always intended to make something out of the sketches – perhaps a poster or postcard – but I wanted […]

December Calendar – Akkarin

Well, of course I saved him ’til last. 1920×1080 (or 1600×900) 1600×1200 (or 1024×768) 1600×1000 Click on the image to get to a full size version. As before, if you don’t know how to download and set images to be your computer screen wallpaper, seek the help of your usual source of computer advice.

Supanova!

Supanova Brisbane is only a week away! And Supanova Adelaide only two weeks away! I keep looking at the awesome line-up of stars and muttering ‘Wow!’ under my breath. Go look. That slide show of amazing guests goes on and on and on. My humble self will be at the Dymocks stand with my signing […]

November Calendar – Savara

Over the last month or so I’ve been arranging, with the help of the lovely people at Orbit, to have all my internetty stuff moved to a new hosting service. The old company didn’t have the most recent version of something which meant I couldn’t upgrade WordPress, which meant my website was not particularly secure. […]
