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 the UK it’ll be out tomorrow. In the US on the 20th. In Germany not until November.

Melbourne is a big city, so I’m going to be introducing Thief’s Magic to the world not just at the book launch but at a signing event at the wonderful Notions Unlimited bookstore. So if you can’t make it to the launch, live down in the south east of Melbourne, want to schmooze with the cool people again, or get me to sign your books twice, here are the details:

Thief’s Magic Launch!

I have a book coming out! Wheeee! Kermit flail!

(Sorry. It never gets old, this book release thing.)

To celebrate, Hachette Australia, Dymocks and I are holding a little party to launch it into the world. We’re also giving one lucky RSVPer a prize. I’m not saying what it is, only that it’s awesome and I’d love to win it myself!

A few days ago Fantasy Cafe published a guest post I wrote for them called “Doing What Comes Naturally: Aussie Women Writers of Fantasy” for their Women in SF&F Month. They are also giving away a copy of Thief’s Magic to one lucky visitor.

There are also many interesting post in this year’s Women Writers of Fantasy. In particular, I liked those by Barbara Friend Ish and Ginn Hale. So if you haven’t already been following, have a browse through the many great blog posts.

And while you’re there, help them compile the Big Giant List of Fantasy & Science Fiction Books By Women:

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 of books I’ve written.

It’s first in first served, so email me at ‘bookplates at (my name) dot com’ with your address and website (so I can confirm you really are a bookstore). According to Australia Post they should take 3-10 days to arrive, and I’m planning to post them early next week.
