Blimey, July is busy. After months spent squirrelled away indoors working on The Ninth Rain, I am abruptly going to be out and about a bit, AND my books are also spreading their wings and venturing further out into the world.
On the 5th, The Copper Promise made it’s debut in the US and Canada. Here I am over at Barnes & Noble, talking about writing and how the Copper Cat novels came to be.
On the 16th, I shall be at Edge-Lit in Derby, appearing on panels and hosting a special edition of Super Relaxed Fantasy Club with the marvellous Peter Newman. Edge-Lit is a great, friendly event full of good people, so I hope you can make it.
On the 23rd of July, me and Pete and Den Patrick are heading to Birmingham Waterstones (yes it’s true, I am sometimes allowed out of London) and we’ll be having a chat about fantasy, publishing, and probably signing books too. So much fantasy awesomeness, for free!
And on the 14th, the teeny weeny paperback of The Silver Tide will be available. The final part of the Copper Cat trilogy, it features pirates, dragons, old and terrible gods, and more mayhem than you can shake a stick at.
In celebration, I’m giving away a new shiny copy – signed and scribbled with dragons and other nonsense. To win one, simply tell me: if you had a magical sword, what would you name it? – let me know on twitter (@sennydreadful) with the hashtag #SilverTideSword or tell me in the comments here 😀
(UK only I’m afraid, and I’ll pick a winner at random on Wednesday the 13th of July )
