busy little bee


This year is looking to be a craaaaazy year. I’ve got loads of projects to work on (and finish :P) and goals to aim for.

Plus this will also be the first year I do anything more exciting than tweet at people. I’m going to be at Franschhoek Literary Festival drinking all the wine, and missioning around World Fantasy Con, meeting all the tweeps. (well, that’s the theory, since I will ditch WFC if there’s a Patrick Wolf gig, so yeah.)

I guess I better go organise some couches to crash on….

Right now I am getting stuck into a book I abandoned about a year ago; ripping it apart and glueing it back together in strange and possibly unwholsome shapes. This is turning out to be more fun than I expected because it’s a different book but tonally it will be the same, which is what I want.

I’m waiting to get stuck into the first round edits for Beastkeeper, and for the When the Sea is Rising Red sequel (currently called House of Sand and Secrets), all while dreamstorming ideas for the Dog God book.

And it’s exciting. Things are happening.

Not just for me: South African-born SFF writer Liz de Jager has joined the TorUK team, so that’s pretty cool, and many congrats to her and her contemporary YA fantasy series. Sounds like it’s going to be fun.
