Phew! Well what a busy couple of weeks I've had! Feels like I've not had a chance to rest at all! :p
Anyway, so now after a little break, I am back. And boy what a fortnight it was! After getting back from my holiday, I visited the Nine Worlds Geekfest 2013 and spent my weekend amongst some of the greatest fans of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Steampunk and Comics! I had a lot of fun and met some wonderful people - and even debuted the paperback of Legacy of the Dragonkin and Taurok's War.
To see some pictures of the events, click on the picture below.
Thanks to the guys and gals for having me and making sure I was looked after. I even got to stay at the hotel it was held at and had pancakes for breakfast - yum!
Anyway, some updates - I got a lot of stuff planned for this blog coming up, including some more Top Fives and other stuff. I also plan to get ALL my outstanding reviews done by the end of the month, so if you are waiting on a book review for me (and I've accepted), then I will aim to finish your books soon. Hopefully I can open up my submissions again soon for reviews!
I'd also like to hear from your view guys - what do you want to see more of on this blog? More Top Fives? Writing tips? Pointless banter. I was also thinking of doing a special "fan art" page for some commissions I've had done for my
Draconica work. What do you guys think of that? Leave a comment below if you like to see anything in particular.
Also, be sure to check out the new and improved Draconica wiki! I've been making some changes to it and I think it looks pretty cool! I'll try and update it as often as I can, but in the meantime, I'd love to hear your feedback on it as well!
That's it for the moment. Cheers for reading guys. Speak soon!
Hey guys. I know I promised you all some teaser artwork from my upcoming sequel Legacy of the Dragonkin and I haven't forgotten about it. In fact I do have some artwork ready - but I just feel that posting these would give spoilers away for those who haven't read Trapped on Draconica yet. And I don't know about you guys but I don't like spoilers, so decided to hold back on them for a bit. I will post them when they become available.
In the meantime, I'm pleased to let you guys know that I'll be attending a couple more conventions this year, which I am excited about. The first one will be the second London Anime Con on June 30th - July 31st (see my previous post
to see how that went), whereby I'll be selling paperback versions of Trapped on Draconica AND (for the first time) paperback versions of The Wandering Valkyr and my upcoming prequel All Hail Emperor Gothon. I also have a special sketchbook planned for the event that includes sample artwork for the book and some teaser artwork for later stuff.
The second convention I'll be attending will be Anime Attacks at the Gateshead Library, near Newcastle. This event runs from the 13th - 14th July and I will be attending on the 14th, again with copies of my book Trapped on Draconica. I will also be hosting a special Q&A session and workshop based around my book - which I'm looking forward to.
To check out these events, click on the links below to be taking to their website/facebook page.
If any are in those areas on either of those days, please pop over and say hi! And don't forget to check out the other great events that are taking place that day!
Thanks for reading! On Wednesday we have another special author guest blog!
I recently did a guest blog, talking about conventions (using my most recent visit to London Anime Con as an example) on Carole Gill's official blog page. A huge thank you for Carole for giving me this opportunity. She was a pleasure to talk to and really helpful.
Please check out her blog and follow her. Link to my interview with her is below.

Thanks again to Carole for the opportunity to post on her blog. I hope it was of some help.
