More links and mentions and an extract and a podcast


  • The Burning Dark isn’t out until March 25th, but over at you can read the first extract! Note: a teeny bit of adult language. Also: strawberry liqueur…
  • …which can you have a drink of at Forbidden Planet on March 6th, where Angry Robot and Titan are joining forces to throw Hang Wire and The Burning Dark a party. The Burning Dark might not be out until March 25th, but if you can make it to FP, you’ll be able to get it three weeks early!
  • Over at SFSignal, both Hang Wire and The Burning Dark get a mention in the latest Mind Meld on Books We Can’t Wait To Read In 2014. Huzzah!
  • Also going live today is the latest episode of the Reader/Writer podcast. In this episode, myself, Andrew Mayne, Christopher Morse and Starla Hutchton discuss the perils of writing superhero fiction. Warning: contains spandex and capes.

And finally two reminders:

  • I have a newsletter! It’s closing in on 100 subscribers – it’s going to be monthly, and brief, but it will have exclusive content and giveaways that you won’t find elsewhere. So, you know, you should totally subscribe. I said the first issue would be out February 1st, but then I remembered I had a book out on January 28th, so it’ll be around then instead.
  • Speaking of books and them coming out, don’t forget to enter the Hang Wire/The Burning Dark pre-order contest, in which you could win 13 signed books by some very cool folk. Details at the link!
