Sad news – and good

Publishing giveth and publishing taketh away, quite often on the same day. And that’s been the case today.

On the one hand I’ve had the sad news that my first ever book, ‘Raise the Blade’, is no longer available for sale. It happens; contracts come up on their sell-by date. I think what makes this sad for me is the fact that it was my first book, which makes it feel that little bit more special. However, I will be mulling over the possibilities of re-publishing it in the next few months, so keep checking back for further updates.

And the good news? Well, I’ve had a short story accepted in the latest (fourth) Shotgun Honey anthology. This is still very much in the early stages of preparation so I can’t reveal too much – but again, if you check back in a week or two I’ll have all the details of who’s in it, what it looks like, what my story’s about, and when it’ll be available. Don’t go anywhere in the meantime!

    I am sorry to hear that Raise the Blade is out of publication for now. But as you say, that doesn’t mean forever. I hope it’ll be back. And congratulations on the story!! That’s fabulous, and I look forward to hearing more about it.

  2. You should self-publish it. That way, it stays on the virtual bookshelf for ever, even if it doesn’t get much in the way of hype! And totally off-topic but I seem to have got my avatar back!
