Three sleeps ’til the AFCC Singapore

I’m almost all packed with shoes counted, dresses rolled to minimise creasing and the all important book to read on the plane chosen as I get ready to head to Singapore for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content. And I can’t wait.

While there I’m doing a panel about the trends in and writing speculative fiction for young adults with two other fabulous writers, Payal Dhar and Sally Gardner. And I’m going to be heading to as many of the other sessions as I can.

I’ll be taking pics and blogging about when I can (wifi permitting!)  so look out for that. Ready to go!

Supanova Perth in June

I’m really excited to finally be able to tell you that I will be appearing at Supanova in Perth this June 21 and 22.
I’ve been a fan of the Expo for a while so it’s great to be invited as one of the authors.

Plenty of great authors are going to be there including Robin Hobb, Glenda Larke, Keri Arthur and Jo Spurrier to name just a few. Oh and some other vaguely famous people such as Jon Heder who was in that little known movie Napoleon Dynamite, John Barrowman from Torchwood and Doctor Who and Laurie Holden who did that barely recognised little tv show The Walking Dead. So, you know, just a few small timers (!! excited yet??)

It’s going to be a blast. So if you’re in Perth, come down and see me at a panel or have a chat at the book booth.
It’s going to be great!

Go here to find out all about it.

Betrayal Cover Reveal

The second book in my fantasy series The Twins of Saranthium has a cover!

0714 Betrayal_Final200

“When the old awake the two must sunder. From her pain shall come the light and so into darkness go. Who will sing her home?” Prophet Scrolls.

Shaan and Tallis have escaped from Azoth, but danger and death follow them. Azoth’s siblings, The Four Lost gods, have woken and they are far from the saviours the prophecies promised them to be. A war is coming between gods, serpent and man and the Twins may be the only ones who can stop it.

While Tallis is discovering the true depths of his powers – and the terrible consequences of their use, Shaan learns that holding the Birthstone has left more than a scar; a touch from her hand can now heal – or kill. Caught between her growing feelings for Balkis and the fear of what she might do, Shaan is ill prepared to learn the choice she must make to save those she loves. Victory against the gods is possible, but only through a devastating act of Betrayal….

Out in ebook on August 1
