Those of you in possession of a sensitive nature (and let’s face it, if you’re here the chances of that are slim) will probably not want to read this review by, erm, BookCunt. I’ll let her do the talking. 🙂
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.
As Herald of the Storm continues to fly off the shelves (you’ve bought yours already, haven’t you? If not WHY NOT?) I’ve recently been in demand on the interview circuit – well who wouldn’t want to know all about ME!
Firstly, Stephen Jewell asks me about my influences, including the pub, over at the SFX website. Then Doug Smith, who gave me a very nice review over at Fantasy Faction, does his very first interview over at Wilder’s Book Review. And finally, Stefan Fergus uses some very natty graphics over at Civilian Reader.
So if you’re just dying to know more about me – and let’s face it, who isn’t? – then you’ve never had a better opportunity.
Today Herald of the Storm hits bookshops in the UK, and you should most definitely buy it. But don’t just take my word for it! Gareth Wilson over at Falcata Times thinks it’s definitely a series to watch, while Ani Johnson at the Bookbag was reduced to tears… in a good way!
So go on, snag yourself a copy while the snagging’s good- – you won’t regret it!
In case you didn’t know – and I’ve been bleating on about it enough recently so you should – Herald of the Storm hits shelves in the UK on the 25th April. Already there have been some glowing reviews and this week is no exception.
First, Elloise Hopkins at the British Fantasy Society reviewed it here. Then Craig at Galaxy Bookshop in Australia thinks I’m ‘As good as Abercrombie’ when you click the reviews tab over here (apparently referring to some chap known as ‘Joe Abercrombie’ – never heard of him, personally). And Erik Lundqvist, who really liked my debut, Kultus, says Herald of the Storm ‘surpassed his expectations’ over here.
Add to this the fact the novel now has its very own tie-in coffee mug, and it’s been a pretty good week all in all.
