Battlemage in the wild

Battlemage comes out in a couple of days, but already a number of stores have copies available and on sale. I’ve been to my local Waterstones in Leeds and I saw it on the shelf which was weird and cool and exciting and scary.

A friend in York has mentioned it’s on sale there too and the image below was taken at Bradford Waterstones. Battlemage is keeping some very good company there wedged between Brent Weeks, Sir Terry Pratchett, and with Trudi Canavan, Robert Jordan on top and Neil Gaiman on the bottom. It’s all starting to feel a little more real now! If you see a copy of it anywhere in your local bookshop in the UK, or in Germany as I believe it is due out there¬† very soon, then let me know.

December Update

Christmas is just around the corner and everything is starting to wind down at the end of the year. I’ve got a couple more weeks at work before I break up for a lovely break over the holidays, so I thought I would do a quick update.

I’m still editing the novel, it’s gone through another round and is currently with my agent for feedback. The comic book projects are inching along, but they all take a lot of time so I’m seeing sketches and pages in progress, but there’s nothing to post.

A couple of weeks ago I took part in a round table podcast about World Fantasy Con 2013, which I attended in Brighton this year. Scrolls is a SFF book podcast, part of the Geek Syndicate network, hosted by the lovely Dion, and he guided the discussion of four people about WFC. We talked about what we enjoyed and didn’t, the panels, the hotel, and basically gave as much information about this sort of convention as possible. I’m guilty of doing this myself, but I sometimes talk about events or comics or books, and just assume other people are aware and have the same level of knowledge as I do about that part of geekdom. So we break down the convention and give people a general idea of what to expect at this type of event. Karen Davies, Paul Holmes,¬† Phil Ambler and myself shared our impressions of WFC.

You can download and listen to the podcast here or look for it on iTunes under the Geek Syndicate podcast.

Might squeeze a couple of short posts in before the end of the year, but they’re likely to be brief and one or two might be real ale reviews as I have been sampling a few and just haven’t got around to writing down my thoughts about them just yet. I hope you all have a lovely and relaxing holiday.
