Review of Spark and Carousel by Joanne Hall

  This is the first in an occasional review series that I’ll be posting on this blog. A shorter version of this review has appeared on Goodreads and my other blog, Living in the Maniototo. I really enjoyed this book. It’s very different to a lot of fantasy I’ve read, and refreshingly so. It has […]

Winterbloom – new extract

Winterbloom is coming along nicely, and I have now passed the 125,000 word mark, despite some rather fierce inflight editing.

Our heroes (?) have now made it to Earth and are about to cause a modest amount of havoc in 1920’s Bath. I’m having to bone up on such luminaries as Dr Dee, John Wood the Elder, and William Beckford.

Oh no, it’s a box set!

In a moment of rash enthusiasm, I have created a box-set version of the first three books of my Mir: shamanworld series for Kindle. You can pre-order it here. The set comprises Children of the Shaman (currently free to download), The Glass Mountain, and Malarat. It is available to pre-order from Amazon and will be […]

Bookgorilla author pages

I’ve started running around (like a headless chicken) creating lots of new pages for myself. First up, I was discovered a new offer from Bookgorilla, who will create a free author page for you, on the basis that you work to share the link to the best of your ability. I’m just road-testing this now, and will report back later on.

About Through a Mirror, Darkly: Through a Mirror, Darkly is a Supernatural Thriller collection masked as a novel. With elements of mystery, […]

I went to Bristolcon!

This was my first ever trip to Bristolcon, a convention in the city of Bristol that has been running for six years. I sat on three panels, the first one at 10 o’clock after the opening speech by the redoubtable Joanne Hall, who has been running Bristolcon since its inception. I was moderating a panel […]

Malarat reviewed at Black Gate

I am delighted that Malarat has received a review from Donald Crankshaw at Black Gate, as part of his series on self-published fantasy. Malarat is the third book in my Mir: shamanworld series, and the first to be self-published. Short extract from the review: Malarat’s cover says that it’s a “Novel of Love Beyond Death,” […]
