Hi everyone, and welcome to my new 'News & Events' page!
1 June 2014 - recently there has been an important development, resulting in the delay of 'Nick Hawthorne and the Banefires of Autumn' being published.
Note that this means (despite advertisements I took early in order to meet certain publication dates, such as in 'Stirrings', the South Yorkshire folk magazine) the book launch at Waterstones on July 11 WILL NOT HAPPEN. I do apologise for this, and will be in touch regarding a new launch date in the near future. So:
September 30 2014 - new publication date for 'Nick Hawthorne and the Banefires of Autumn'. Book launch should be shortly after this. Note that 'Autumn' is still available on pre-order.
Secondly, although I'm still contracted to Knox Robinson Publishing for my 'Albion Chronicles' trilogy, I'm now to appear under their 'Mithras' imprint, which is targeted more towards the YA arena. Therefore you'll find me under www.mithrasbooks.com.
More to follow. Exciting times!
October 24 at 6pm - I'm doing my book launch as part of the Sheffield Book Festival 'Off the Shelf'. Location is Theatre Delicatessen, or, as you probably know it, the old Woolworth's store on the Moor. I'll be talking about the writing process, what inspires me and how I went about creating my fantasy world of Albion. This will be followed by a short reading from 'Nick Hawthorne and the Banefires of Autumn', and rounded off by a signing session. I very much look forward to seeing you all there!
