I have just received the final layout for the cover of "The Shadow of Tyr" [Book 2 of The Mirage Makers] - which has now gone to the printer. It will be out in January in Australia, all being well. For those of you getting your books from UK, not until late next year in all probablility.

And I hear from my agent that there is a full page on me in the Orbit/Little Brown catalogue. Wow. (I haven't seen it yet.)

So all,
Selamat Hari Raya / Happy Id
Happy Deepavali / Diwali

And don't expect anything more up here until next Wednesday - we are heading off into the wilds for the holidays. (see pix)

Praise for Heart of the Mirage:
‘fresh, strange and intriguing’ Sunday Age
‘highly imaginative and entertaining’ The Specusphere
‘bring on Part Two’ The Advertiser Review

Here's hoping that one day you'll have an international bestseller. Now that would be interesting :)

They ought to be bestsellers. Nice quotes, too.

teehee. I didn't have THAT much praise for Heart of the Mirage, but that's just because I didn't really like Ligea as a heroine. :P

but the story WAS pretty ok, actually. :)

Picky, picky, eyeris...

However, you aren't the only guy who didn't like Ligea that much. She seems to appeal to women more - am wondering why. She is very masculine in Heart of the Mirage - a product of her warped upbringing. But she is somewhat changed by the end of it, so maybe book 2 will appeal more.
