A massive storm has blown up from nowhere outside, so while I sit here with the telly off and rubber shoes on, here’s a brief round up of cool stuff happening today and tomorrow.
Firstly, I’m over at Abhinav Jain’s blog talking about how I name my characters (I have an incredibly intricate system, as I’m sure you can imagine *ahem*) – it’s a post I very much enjoyed writing, and it made me realise some things about my process that were entirely new to me.
Secondly, I am chuffed that The Copper Promise is mentioned on Adrian Tchaikovsky‘s list of books he enjoyed this year – particularly since I finished Dragonfly Falling this morning and I’m very much in love with the Shadows of the Apt series at the moment.
My good friend Adam Christopher also mentions The Copper Promise in his list of things to look out for next year (also next year, Adam has two books out – The Burning Dark and Hang Wire. Now, I’ve read The Burning Dark and it is A. May. Zing. So get on it.)
And lastly, the first part of The Copper Promise ebook, Ghosts of the Citadel, is out tomorrow! 99p gets you the opening chunk of my sword and sorcery “romp” (my agent described it as a romp and now I will use that word as much as possible. Romp romp romp. 99p romp!)
