For all you London types, Goldsboro Books will be holding their annual Fantasy in the Court event on the 28th March between 6pm and 9pm. More details here: https://www.goldsborobooks.com/articles/fantasy-in-the-court-2013-28.html

I shall be there with several dozen copies of my new novel - and they'll be signed!

Seriously, by the time I've finished the rare copies will be the ones without a signature  :-\

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Writer Beware!

I guess I'm posting this as a bit of a cautionary tale for would-be writers, but I also think it raises some important issues regarding the rising ease with which people can now publish fiction. Please note it's rather long and NSFW:


I love small publishers, they'll generally take a chance on novels that would never otherwise see the light of day. I also think self-publishing's great, and we've all heard Amanda Hocking' success. However, if you're seriously thinking about becoming a writer it's always important to note, that there's no substitute for a good editor!
