SFX Review

Posted: June 16, 2018 in Books, Reviews

This month’s SFX has given me a rip-roaring 4* review. I’ve been reviewed in its hallowed pages before but this is my best performance so far. Perhaps I’m actually getting better at this writing lark!

Hello all, and welcome to part two of my publicity roundup (because I know you don’t want to miss a thing!).

The blog tour continues with an article at Bibliosanctum and a few words from me about worldbuilding.

And Literary Wisdom have an excerpt from A Demon in Silver featuring a bit of background.

The guys at Skiffy & Fanty asked me what My Superpower would be.

Drew at the Tattooed Book Geek was over the moon that his quote for the Steelhaven series appeared on the back cover of A Demon in Silver.

Doreen Sheridan over at the Frumious Consortium, who are hosting a blog on the 20th June, thought A Demon in Silver was “a thrilling, twisty trip through a brutal fantasy land,” and she was, “definitely on board to see where Mr Ford goes with this series next.” Full review here.

LynnDee Wathen at Booklist Online thought “the multitude of characters readers are introduced to—most of them unsavory—are worth investing in”. Full review here.

And finally if, like me, you’re not a huge fan of cat pictures on the internet then there may be something to change your mind. Dr. Liz Bourke (@hawkwing_lb on twitter) kindly posted this snap of her cat, lounging around with a good book (I’m assured that no animals were harmed in the taking of this photo).

Book, cat, and rainbow bunting.

Blog Tour

A Demon in Silver hits shelves on Tuesday in the UK and the US. To mark this momentous occasion I shall be spreading the word via all that is social media and embarking on my first ever blog tour! Below is a list of all the lovely peeps who have allowed me to spout words on their websites…

Coming Soon…

Posted: May 31, 2018 in Books, News, Reviews

Yes it’s been a while since there’s been any blog action, but prepare to be dazzled! June 12th sees the long awaited release (sorry, my fault) of new novel A Demon in Silver from Titan Books. It will also see a blog tour event, so I’ll be making up for a distinct lack of action on here.

In the meantime, take a look at the first review for the new novel which appeared in UK magazine SciFiNOW.

Clash of the Titan!

Posted: December 22, 2015 in Books, News

It’s been a long time coming, but yes, I have finally scored a new book deal with Titan Books. Full details are here. Obviously I am well stoked about this and can’t wait to get to work. The guys at Titan were great and the series couldn’t be in better hands. Also, props to my agent John Jarrold for making this happen. He really is da man!

In other news, my Steelhaven short story, The Halfwyrd’s Burden, has been produced as an audioshort (if that’s even a thing) on the Far Fetched Fables site here. Have a listen… IT’S FREE!!

World domination begins…

Lovely news in the form of not one, not two, but three new translation rights deals this week. In addition to the Spanish deal already sealed, Herald of the Storm will soon be available in French, Bulgarian and Italian. Full details are on my agent John Jarrold’s website here. So it’s Nasdrave, Santé and Salute from me!

For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, there’s a trailer for the mass market paperback release of Herald of the Storm available on YouTube right here. Thanks to Mark Smith, otherwise known as Pilgrim Angry, for the music, and those clever chaps at Headline for putting it together for me.
