More shiny things coming this way. Paperback of The Secret Throne, which used to be called The Queen of Dreams when it was a hardback with a different publisher (don't ask!). Due out 30th July. At least now the trilogy is back on track for one-per-year publication. The foil is actually a uniform sharp-blue, that shading effect on the photo is just due to the way the light catches it. Kinda groovy really.

My Australia trip is getting close now, so in addition to the two Supernova conventions, I'll also be doing an event in Sydney on Monday 13th April at the Kinokuniya Bookshop, 6.30pm. For details: https://www.facebook.com/events/429277060560526/
If you're in Sydney, hope you can make it. I'm happy to sign as many of (my) books you want to bring along.

I don't get nominated for many awards, so this is rather nice. As always, kudos to my French publisher Bragelonne for producing such an excellent edition.
GPI - Palmarès 2015 gpi.noosfere.org Le Prix connait de nouvelles évolutions. Après 5 ans d'existence, les catégories BD/Comics et Manga sont supprimées, car la tâche de disséquer l'abondante production Imaginaire en littérature comme en BD se montre finalement trop prenante pour un seul jury. Non sans regrets, car fier de son palmarès…

This may not make much sense. Although I understand it perfectly. But for people who want to know how Night Without Stars is progressing...
The book is divided into six books. Then there's the little sections inbetween the books. Oh, and possibly book seven, which is probably just going to be the epilog. So. I've written books 1,2,3,&4, and some of the link bits inbetween. Which means I reached the point where I needed to revise the notes for books 5&6, to make sure the outline matches the extra unplanned stuff that's sneaked its way out of my imagination and onto the page (insight alert: why my books are the length they always seem to turn out as). That just took me nearly two weeks, and said notes for 5&6 now come to 12,000+ words. In theory this puts me over half way -yay!- although I haven't finalised any notes for the remaining inbetweeners, so not sure how long that's going to take -boo!-. And for those of you who want a small hint of what's to come, book one is called: Another Death For Laura Brandt. Because obviously she hasn't suffered nearly enough... Oh, and I had a pleasant morning on the net looking up facts about Soyuz capsules. I do hope this helps.

Some people (such as "Dave" in the guestbook) noticed that Pandora's star was pulled from Audible, and wondered why this happened. It turns out that there have been some complaints about the sound quality of that recording. For that reason, the book was temporarily removed from the Audible store until the engineers have fixed this.
