What a wonderful launch for Bound

I’m on the train heading home from Sydney, tapping away on my iPad, still a little stunned by the awesome night I had last night.

The best work is always unofficially collaborative

July 9, 2014

I was reading stuff online today, procrastinating because sleep-deprived, when I came across this great post by Peter M Ball on the value of his weekly Write Club. Basically, he gets together with Angela Slatter once a week and they help each other get the writing done and get it done well. It got...

Photoshop Bound giveaway winners

So I stole this idea from Mark Lawrence and asked people to photoshop the cover of Bound into whacky pictures, just for a laugh. I was going to pick a winner. Then I couldn’t decide and asked people to go the Facebook album where I put all the pics and Like their favourites. Then...

A timely repost of the article about authors dying (on the shelves)

July 1, 2014

I originally posted this back in September 2010, but it seems very relevant to post it again now. After all, the first book in my new (so far) trilogy has just come out. (Yes, it’s all about me. I don’t have a new book come out very often, so give me this. Come on...

Photoshop competition for a signed copy of Bound

Photoshop competition for a signed copy of Bound

I saw this done by Mark Lawrence on Facebook and I’m shamelessly stealing it because it’s a very cool concept. The idea is that you photoshop my book into another image and link me to your work of art. The one I like (or perhaps the one that disturbs me) the most, gets a...
