December Update

And where did December come from, eh? Every year it just seems to come from out of nowhere, pounce on our backs, dig its incisors into our necks and shake us like a terrier to a rat?

No? Just me, then?
That’s right. I see you shrugging meekly over there. Takes you by surprise, too, doesn’t it?

Well, here we are now, barely more than a week from a whole new year and all that it will bring.

Roll on 2015? I think so.

News

Right, news.

Not a lot, other than that I now have an approximate release date for WARRIOR’S TOUCH, which is Spring (that’s Autumn for us Southern Hemisphere-ites) 2015. Before you get too excited (I saw you), I feel a need to caution that it will probably be late Spring/Autumn, especially when we consider that my cover artist won’t be available until March as it is. But at least we have something to aim for. And between now and then there will be cover reveals and other marketing ploys to get us all excited and stuff …

Books For Christmas

(Oops. Ignore my premature post… clicked “Publish” instead of “Save Draft”, didn’t I? Duh!)

Fellow Grimbold author Paige Daniels had this idea for a little cross-promotion since, you know, Christmas is coming up. So, just in case you wanted some ideas for books to hunt out in your local bookstore (sorry, I’ve probably left this a bit late to order physical copies), or to add to your wishlist should you find yourself with a digital voucher of some sort, I’m going to share a few ideas with you right here, you know, to help you out.

And, I’m totally going to borrow Paige’s categories/descriptions, too.

But first … I say, I say, FIRST, I’m going to pay homage to Paige by doing a plug for her books, because she plugged mine but didn’t even whisper her own books’ names (Yes! Plural!) in her post.

So without further ado, check these books out if you like your cyberpunk a little dystopian.
