An interview…

… with myself can now be found online here – a podcast at the Sci-Fi London website.

Recorded during Eastercon, and totally unprepared: thankfully I put on my slightly-less Welshy accent for you to understand me.

Well, technically, I was back from Eastercon on Sunday evening but anyone who has ever been to conventions will know, that, your body takes a little while to shift from Standard Convention TIme to normal time. I think it’s something to do with alcohol intake…

Anyway, last weekend was a damn good affair – good chance to meet up with various peeps who you only generally get to meet once or twice a year (at conventions, funnily enough) have a decent curry and drink a fair amount of alcohol (despite those prices…)

Primarily, though, it was a time of dealing (books – in case the Flying Squad are reading) and even though, compared to my first Eastercon in Glasgow, the sales were low (which is ironic since that event was on a smaller scale than Orbital) The Reef still did well (still pinching myself at Christopher Priest and China Mieville both buying a copy…)

I’m all booked up for LX in Bradford next year, and a shout out to a couple of people who I didn’t get a chance to say fairwell to: Tony Ballantyne and Eric Brown; obviously Mark and Christian (along with John J); and Ian Whates (who did a roaring trade during the launch – quite remarkable) along with the BSFA/NewCon crowd.

See you all next year – or possible Alt-Fiction/Fantasycon.

Set sail for The Reef…

… though in hindsight, the analogy could be all wrong since the books have arrived – proof being the photograph.

Looks rather lovely, doesn’t it? Well, don’t forget to buy your copy – and just a reminder: if you are going to Eastercon, then make sure you’re around on Friday evening for the official launch (as part of Ian Whates’ BSFA do.)

The author, Mark Charan Newton, will be on hand with an eager right-hand to sign your copy there and then.

It’s Competition Corner!

In my memory of my childhood and the impending distribution of a multitude of copies of Mark Charan Newton’s debut dark fantasy novel, The Reef, via Waterstones I thought I’d start a little competition – a little bit of fun and frivolity…

From it’s publication (26th March) and until end of June whomever can find a copy of said book in a branch the furthest away (from me) and provide documentary proof of it’s location then the eventual winner will receive a signed copy gratis.

Oh, and the publisher’s decision is final.

So, if you’re up there in John O’Groats or down there in Land’s End then keep your eyes peeled…

EDIT: Egad! it’s everywhere!
