Launching the new site/blog!
I am sitting in a typical Lao Internet cafe – that is to say, a baby is crying somewhere, construction workers are drilling into the walls, and someone’s eating a fried chicken. I’m here to put the finishing touches to the new website/blog on wordpress – what do you think?
The masthead is a picture of a Vanua Lava snake dance, Vanua Lava being the island I lived on for a year in the Republic of Vanuatu. Not too many people get to see those…
I’m hoping to blog more with this new site, as well as offer more up-to-date information on forthcoming books and stories and everything else. I have a lot coming out in the next couple of years! Not all of which I can mention yet.
In January 2010 – just around the corner – my first novel is coming out from Angry Robot. The Bookman is my love letter to steampunk, and the first in a series for AR. It will be followed by Camera Obscura later in 2010, which I am busy finishing at the moment, and which is even more fun to write!
There is one other novel coming out in 2010, and two novellas, more short stories and at least a couple of comic strips. And 2011 is looking to be equally busy…
So, having more or less finished the site (for now), and written this short introductory post, I will shortly be heading off to the Mekong, to watch the sunset and drink beer. Sometimes it’s not too bad, being a writer!
