Bloodborn World Tour

Tuesday, 4. May 2010 11:12

Later this month I will embark on a two day, two city, two store signing tour for Bloodborn, my next Warhammer book from Black Library. These two stores will be the only places in the US where you’ll be able to get a copy of Bloodborn before the official June release, so come on down and be the first one on your block.

On Saturday, May 22nd at 2pm I will be signing at Emerald Knights Comics and Games in Burbank. The store is huge – two floors! – and packed with cool stuff, so I’ll make sure to wear something bright so you can find me. Emerald Knights is at:

4116 W. Burbank Blvd.
Burbank, CA 91505
818-588-3631
Website

And on Sunday, May 23rd I will be driving down to San Diego to sign at Mysterious Galaxy, also at 2pm. I am sharing the bill with Christopher Farnsworth who will be signing his book, Blood Oath. We’re calling the event Bloodbath, and I will be facing Chris in a no holds barred steel cage match – winner gets to sign the other guy’s books. Mysterious Galaxy is at:

7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
Suite #302
San Diego, CA 92111
858-268-4747
Website

So if you’re in the LA or San Diego area, please come by and say hello. It would be great to see you all!

Back from the Dead…

Sunday, 7. March 2010 19:47

And better than ever.

I delivered my first draft of Zombieslayer yesterday and have finally come up for air. I always get a little, uh, focused toward the end of a draft, and I really haven’t paid much attention to anything other than writing, so things like buying groceries, cleaning the house, bathing and updating this blog have sort of gone by the wayside. But now I’m done (at least with this draft) and I have a little time to breathe, so… let’s get back to the art and noise, shall we?

Then I’ll go take a bath…

Here is Maciej Kuciara painting of one of the classic fantasy tropes – the half naked barbarian woman. A lot of times this kind of subject matter gets a bit cheesy and dull, but I like what he’s done with it. Click on the pic to go to his site, which is filled with amazing stuff. He is a top-notch landscape and matte painting guy too.

Rough Work

Tuesday, 9. February 2010 16:43

Whew! The rough draft of Zombieslayer is done. 112,600 words, and most of them abysmal, but at least I’ve got something to work with now. Right. After a short break to rinse out my brain, I’m going to plunge back in and try to make it all mean something.

Wish me luck.

Zombieslayer!

Interview with a Vampire…. author

Thursday, 21. January 2010 10:48

In a couple of weeks I’m going to be doing another promo video for the Black Library. This one will be for Bloodborn, my upcoming Gotrek and Felix spin-off novel about Ulrika the Vampire, and this time I thought I’d do a little Q+A. So, if you have any questions about Bloodborn, Ulrika, my other Warhammer books, or what I think about vampires who sparkle, reply here and I will compile them and do my best to answer them. I think Black Library is going to be collecting questions on their FB page too, so hopefully there will be a bunch when we get them all together.

The cover of my next Warhammer novel. I can't wait for this one to come out. It looks so cool!

My Writing Process

Friday, 15. January 2010 10:23

Some of you may have seen this before, but I haven’t posted it here yet, so I thought would. This is officially a promo video for Shamanslayer, the latest Gotrek and Felix book, but since I didn’t know how to talk about that without spoilers, I decided to talk about my writing process instead. Have a look!

Gotrek and Felix get snowed in!

Saturday, 9. January 2010 13:52

Cool!

I just got a preview copy of Death and Dishonour, my latest book from Black Library. I didn’t write the whole thing – it’s an anthology of sword and sorcery stories set in the Warhammer world, but I do have the honour of leading it off with a tale of Gotrek and Felix entitled Red Snow, in which the poet and the slayer find themselves trapped in a blizzard in the Mountains of Mourn.

Here, check out the cover, and click through it to Amazon if you want to pre-order. death-and-dishonour
