New article at Fantasy Book Review

Hello all, I have penned a short missive on my trials and tribulations of reading George RR Martin’s mega epic. Enjoy, and for extra fun, try and spot my clearly deliberate typo…cough…

Interview with Emma Vieceli

Hello all,

I wanted to draw your attention to an interview I have conducted for Fantasy Book Review with comics writer and artist Emma Vieceli. She is a fantastically talented individual who is great to chat to  and I cannot commend to you her enough. Check it out.


Colin does Merlin – my way!

Colin does Merlin – my way!

I wrote that line! Does that mean I’m officially awesome? There is a right and wrong answer to this…
We wanted to share this teaser clip with you. Here’s Colin Morgan recording some voices for the game – released later this year! Tell EVERYONE -it’s too good not to share!

It’s a trap! No…wait…it’s a map!

Long time, no blog. I’ve been busy (but not like, massively busy or anything, there’s still LOTRO to play and cricket to watch) with doing a second draft of new book. The title of it, and the series, is End of Empire. Whilst The Enemy of all that’s Good was I think an awesome title, it was a bit of a mouthful.  As for second drafting, you know, it’s a nightmare even thinking about cutting stuff, so I’ll wait for someone to tell me I have to. I have been fleshing out characters, explanations, justifications and the world in general. I am a lot happier with it, but I am too close to know anymore, we’ll see what others have to say. I have also broadly planned out the stories for the next two books, so I know where I and the characters are going, even if I’m not exactly sure which paths all the characters will take to get there.

Any road, to prove that it isn’t all a figment of my imagination, I thought I’d show you the map that the remarkably talented Fez Baker – – has produced. Say hello to the Tissan Empire, thoughts and questions gladly accepted.
