More from the strange world of Incarceron?

More from the strange world of Incarceron?

I am such a fan of your writing—they don’t print some of the books you publish where I live so I ended up having to order some online from used book companies to have it shipped to me. Only mentioning this detail because I wanted to make it clear how much I love your work!

I really do hope you continue and are able to publish that third book for the Incarceron series. While I was content with the ending of Sapphique, I am more than eager to resubmerge myself in that world. I adored the characters and the story, and how there’s always a bit of unsolved mystery ..

Thanks for your question. It’s rather timely actually as I am just writing another Incarceron novel! It’s in the very early stages as yet and I’m still finding my way back into that world, but it’s going to be fun.. It’s called LACHRYMERE. I’m so glad you enjoyed the first two books and thanks for taking the trouble to order them. I appreciate it. So spread the word and keep reading!

I’m pleased to say that the third Clockwork Crow book, THE MIDNIGHT SWAN, is finished and now with the publishers. There should be a cover image soon.

The Velvet Fox has now been published for a month and has had a very good reception and positive reviews.

I’m doing a few… Continue reading

Coming soon- The Velvet Fox

Coming soon- The Velvet Fox

I’m delighted that The Velvet Fox will be published on 3rd October by Firefly Press.  This is the sequel to last year’s Clockwork Crow, and features a new adventure for Seren and the Crow (who is even tetchier this time round.) Firefly have done a great job on the cover. Initial reviews have been very… Continue reading

Sensory Detail.

Firstly, I’d like to say that I love your work. I’ve read a ton of your novels and I always blaze through them because they read so fluidly. The way your writing catches me up in  its current and sweeps me along reminds me of being on a waterslide.  My question: In my opinion, part… Continue reading

The Bramble King launched.

The Bramble King launched.

Last Thursday I had the great pleasure of reading from The Bramble King at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, alongside my old friend Sheenagh Pugh, who was launching her own latest collection Afternoons Go Nowhere. Both are now available from Seren Books. Sheenagh lives in Shetland these days so I haven’t seen her for a… Continue reading

The event was made even more special because the great… Continue reading

Perhaps the most important is that THE CLOCKWORK CROW has won the Welsh Books Council’s Tir na n’Og Prize, awarded from a shortlist of four, for a children’s book with an authentic Welsh background. The prize, an amazing wooden book, was awarded last week in… Continue reading
