Just time to post a quick update after a pleasantly busy October.
Second, I was privileged in October to speak to Boo from Geek Syndicate – all about Barricade, Kenstibec and my writing in general. Read the interview in full here.
During October I polished off edits to Book 3 in the Kenstibec Series, attended Gollancz Fest 2015 (another storming event), arrived late to Ed Cox’s 2nd book launch, and traveled to FantasyCon in Nottingham.
Fantasycon was an interesting one. I discovered on arrival that I had managed to book a room in a rather bleak Travelodge on the other side of town from the convention centre. That kind of numbskullery is very much my style when it comes to con arrangements.
This meant I ended up driving everywhere, and occasionally providing lifts – which would have been fine, if Nottingham hadn’t placed a curse on my satnav. When I tried to find my Travelodge, the device took me on a tour of a huge, desolate Industrial estate. When I offered Richard, Con organiser, a lift into town, we nearly ended up on the M1. And when I attempted to give Tom Toner a lift to his hotel, we rolled in loops around the dark, handsome streets of an isolated neighborhood, unable to escape, like some genteel Dark City.
I’ll wrap up by saying I will post an exciting announcement soon – a sweet new gig I can’t wait to get my teeth into.
