Don’t worry, I haven’t got rid of Rob Dinsdale, he’s still around. However, I am happy to announce that Rob has reached out and formed an alliance with Caitlin Blasdell of Liza Dawson Associates, who’ll be handling affairs relating to North America. This is excellent news, and I look forward to working with Caitlin in my ongoing quest for world domination.
Regarding that, it seems like a reasonable time to officially announce, for those that are interested, that I’m coming to the end of working on a fantasy novel. I don’t want to share too many details at this stage, but I wanted to create a diverse world with rich and varied cultures, and I think I might have succeeded. Also, there are dragons. It’s about hope, essentially: I wanted to write something which actually felt like there is the potential for things to get better. Although that said, the path won’t necessarily be easy.
Finally, I am DELIGHTED that a short story of mine will be featured in Black Library’s upcoming relaunch edition of Inferno!, a magazine I consumed greedily during its first run in the 90s. My Necromunda novella ‘WANTED: DEAD’ should also be out later in the year, and I am absolutely over the moon to confirm that a contract has been signed and I am even now (well, not right now, I’m updating this website) working on my first Black Library novel. Everything to do with that is very hush-hush and under a non-disclosure agreement, of course, but I can say that it’s set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and touches on areas of the background that I don’t think have been hugely explored before, so that’s quite exciting.
Now, one more week of day job to get through, and then the World Cup…
