Author Interview

I met Phillip Spencer briefly at Fantasycon in Brighton last year and was delighted that he’d read some of my stuff and liked it. I meant to buy him a drink, but our paths didn’t cross again for the rest of the weekend – sometimes conventions are like that. We’re both going to the World Fantasy Con this year, and I think I definitely owe him a double for running this interview with me on his Nightspore blog. Thanks, Phillip!

And the photo? It’s quite old, but it’s really me. Isn’t it amazing what you can do with make-up, good lighting and a professional photographer?

Just a Reminder

All four of my books will be free to celebrate the Fantasycon weekend, for five days from 28th September to 2nd October. Choose from – or grab all of –

No Earthly Shore, (US link) an SF novella about first contact with invertebrate aliens, with a side-order of synaesthesia, marine biology and patchwork patterns.

The Spook & the Spirit in the Stone, (US link) an SF/detective novella about  a kidnapped child, a spy who can read minds and teleport, a ghostly guardian and the two police detectives who have to untangle the mess.

The Dragon, Fly, (US link) a collection of SF and fantasy short fiction.

To Die A Stranger, (US link) an SF novel about an actress who almost dies in a crash, becomes a spy with psionic powers by mistake and has to run for her life, pursued by the intelligence organisation who runs such agents.

I shall be in Brighton, trying to avoid the rain, looking forward to eating at some nice restaurants and talking to all the interesting folks there.

Book Giveaways

I’m going to Fantasycon 2012 in Brighton on 27th-30th September, and to promote my books I’ll be making all of them free for that weekend and for a couple of days afterwards. Find links to them here, on my Amazon author page in the UK, but they’re also available in the US, Europe and also in India.

For those of you going to Fantasycon, I’d love to meet you there. It’s not a huge con, so we’ll probably bump into each other over the weekend.
