I have finally had the time to go through the 9 pages of instructions given to me by my very good friend Jules about how to download pictures onto my Website. Thanks Jules

If you click on GALLERY at the top of the home page, you will be taken to a page from which you can view these pictures. I hope you like them.

Meanwhile, in this morning’s mail I received a parcel containing one copy each of the hardback of The Charmed Return and a paperback of The Enchanted Quest. At last! As you probably know, I finished writing The Charmed Return almost a year ago, and it’s seemed sometimes like the book would never actually appear. Well, it has! I hope those of you who have been waiting as eagerly as I have will enjoy it. Please remember if you get in touch, not to include any plot spoilers in your mails to me - not if you want your comments to be posted online here. If you want to discuss specific things in the book, write to me privately from the Contact page, I will always respond.

Clockwork & Corsets

I have had several mails from people asking about Clockwork & Corsets. I have now added a page to explain what this is all about. You can find it by going to the BOOKS page and clicking Corsets & Clockwork at the top of the right hand side panel. Alternatively, click here and you’ll be taken to the same page.

Great news! I told you late last year that I had recorded a Podcast for the Publishers Harper Collins. Well, the podcast is now online for you to listen to.

Basically, I talk for 30 minutes about my writing in general, the Faerie Path in particular, and then I read the whole of Chapter Five of The Charmed Return.

I hope this keeps you interested until the book is published towards the end of January.

I have downloaded the Podcast onto the Interviews section of this website - you can find it by going to the HOME page and checking out the sidebar on the right. Click Interviews, and there you are.

Alternatively, you can listen to it directly here:

And it’s also posted for fans to find on the publisher’s FAERIE PATH #6 book page here (you just have to scroll down a bit to the “Author Extras”):

Oh, by the way, bear in mind that when I talk about the steam punk short story in Corsets and Clockwork coming out “next year” that actually now means THIS year.
