November the gloomiest month of the year…


Or, you know, not. Apparently I would seem to have a thing called a birthday today; and my surprise birthday present is a trip to London courtesy of my sis and the H (!!).
Am currently near Bayswater in a surprisingly large room–no idea what’s in store for today, but it sounds like fun.

I’m not the only one to have a November birthday: fellow authors Lavie Tidhar, David Tallerman and Lee Battersby are also November babies, and to mark the occasion Angry Robot is offering 50% off ebooks–see here for details, but you can basically net yourself all three Acatl books and the short stories in a handy ebook format.

And to tide you over while I, er, go off and not blog very much, you can find me here at Luc Reid’s blog talking about crossing over and insider/outsider writing.

Have fun! (I know I will 🙂 )


  1. Actually, you appear to share yuor birthday with another writer. Some bloke called Neil Gaiman, or something.

    Happy birthday, and enjoy the trip. Looking forward to hearing what the “real” surprise is!

    (Oh, and I like the new photo header on the blog)

  2. Oh, I’d forgotten that 🙂 Thanks. It was a great trip (“real” surprise was 2 hours in Waterstone’s with a book buying budget, and a showing of the Mousetrap, which satisfied my Agatha Christie cravings).
