Updated Appearances

I’m hoping to have some news in the next couple of weeks about events closer to the time of publication for Battlemage. 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”

Nine Worlds 2015

So, we’re still months away from the Nine Worlds Geekfest convention for 2015, which is taking place on 7-9th August in London but I’m writing about it on here for a couple of reasons. I attended the event last year, and it was a remarkable event which was eye-opening and the most inclusive event I’veContinue reading “Nine Worlds 2015”

What happened at Eastercon 2015

This was my first convention of the year and it was a relatively quiet one. Despite that, and coming home before the convention ended, I was still shattered by the end of it. A painful journey down on Friday meant I arrived late but just in time to see the last half of the openingContinue reading “What happened at Eastercon 2015”

Eastercon – Dysprosium

This bank holiday weekend I’ll be at Eastercon or, Dysprosium, as it is called this year, the 66th annual event where SFF fans gather to drink, I mean, talk about books and stuff. This year there are some exciting and interesting guests of honour that I’m looking forward to meeting, but I’m actually more excitedContinue reading “Eastercon – Dysprosium”

My Fantasycon 2014 Experience

I’m back from my first Fantasycon in York which started out on Friday with some Austin Powers style car parking. I was staying at a very central Bed and Breakfast, which was lovely, and the owners kindly gave me a parking permit for the weekend. Brilliant, I thought. I could leave my car all weekend,Continue reading “My Fantasycon 2014 Experience”

My Nine Worlds Experience

Nine Worlds is a new and very different convention in the UK to many of its predecessors that have been around for a long time. Rather than focusing on a particular genre TV show, or medium such as comics, it covers everything. There were over 30 different tracks and I was co-running the podcast trackContinue reading “My Nine Worlds Experience”

My Panels at Nine Worlds 2014

A short list of where I’ll be during Nine Worlds in a couple of weeks time. Between 10am and 1pm on all three days I’ll be keeping an eye on the Podcasting Track which I’m co-running with an old friend, Barry Nugent, from Geek Syndicate. Barry and I go way back, almost to the dawnContinue reading “My Panels at Nine Worlds 2014”

Publishing Adventures in London

Earlier this week I had my first official trip to London as a soon to be published author. It was an intense and pretty exhausting time, but overall proved to be fascinating. On Monday morning I visited my fantastic agent, Juliet Mushens, and Sarah, her lovely assistant, at their offices for a chat about theContinue reading “Publishing Adventures in London”
