    Everyone loves the cover. http://sahuntbooks.com if you want one like it – he’s very reasonable, has a quick turnaround, and is a good guy and an excellent writer himself.

    Just published the first in my new urban fantasy series, Auckland Allies: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01694XVP6/. More in the Jim Butcher/Patricia Briggs/Carrie Vaughn style of action-oriented urban fantasy than the more mystical Charles de Lint kind.

  • I’m looking for local beta readers for a short (50k) urban-fantasy novel set in Auckland. Ideally I’d like to get at least one kiwi under 30 to look it over, to make sure that I haven’t put outdated slang in the mouths of my characters (who are 20 years younger than I am).

    Just reply below if you’re interested – thanks.

  • New online semiprozine The Sockdolager has published my story “Wearing the Hat” in their first issue. They were excellent to deal with, and if you write, as they put it, “genre fiction where Things Happen”, I recommend submitting to them. #news

    Apologies for being an hour late – among the fiction in my head was the idea that it started at 2pm, not 1pm. No idea where that came from.
