Post-birthday blog

Friday was another birthday for me, not a landmark one, so following that and a few other developments, I thought I’d do a bit of a round-up blog for the end of this month. Today I just received copies of the French version of Battlemage – Mage de Guerre – from my French publisher –Continue reading “Post-birthday blog”

I thought I would do a quick post about what I’m up to at the moment on various things. So, book 2, Bloodmage, is completely done and dusted.

Battlemage launch

Last week was the northern launch of Battlemage at Waterstones in Leeds, my local bookshop. It was a weird and wonderful night. Weird because I’ve gone to so many similar events in the past, sat in the audience, and listened to an author talk about their book and their world. So when I arrived andContinue reading “Battlemage launch”

My Experience at Nine Worlds 2015

This was the second year I’ve attended the Nine Worlds Geekfest in London. The event is only in its third year so it is still a relatively new event compared to some. Even so I think it is leaps and bounds ahead of others in terms of it being the most inclusive and open eventContinue reading “My Experience at Nine Worlds 2015”

Podcasting Legends

I’m giving that title to someone else, not me, namely Scott Grandison, my partner in crime on our podcast of eight years last week, Comic Book Outsiders. When we started podcasting we had a sign at comic book conventions on our table that said – Ask us about podcasting! Several times an hour, people cameContinue reading “Podcasting Legends”

However, I’m going to be appearing in a few places in the meantime in the run up to the end of September and publication date. So I’ve added details as I have themContinue reading “Updated Appearances”
