The Launch of 'Trouble on Teral'
General & miscellaneous / January 24th, 2020 9:42 am
A thank you to all those who attended the Book Launch of Trouble on Teral' held at Rabble Books and Games in Maylands on the 12th of January. It was a great turn out and I ended up having a lot of fun, and selling a lot of books, including some Nightfall.The Crowd at the launch relaxing after the formal part

I have to particularly thank Charlie Staples who served as MC for the event, and Nat and Sam from Rabble who helped set everything up and operated the till.

With the arrival of my new 'reading' chair on Christmas Eve my workspace in the loft is now complete.

The other photo shows the all-in-one machine (on the right) used for writing, while the graphics machine (on the left) is used for photoshop, Daz3D, and the occasional game. You can also just make out the bookcase holding Hague Publishing's stock (Print on Demand is a wonderful thing).

The Su in Black
November 6th, 2019 2:50 pm
Just starting to plot up a new book (The Su in Black) which will be the second in the Suman Haratan series (the first one being, of course, A Boy Called Su) . This series follows The Honor Trilogy which is set three years after the Clemhorn Trilogy (now in print from Zmok Books). The Su in Black is to be set on Dynand, an alternate timeline where males are cossetted, pampered, and generally put down because there are so few of them. I'm presently practicing with Daz3D and given that there are two feuding regiments involved (a la The Three Musketters) I've been trying to mock them up. This is a very early attempt.

The other thing is that realised I didn't have enough background on Isolde, one of my main characters, so for the first time ever, I took the advice of many other writers and wrote about an earlier period in her life. Who'd have known that she practised savate ( French kickboxing)!
