The Mortal Word has hit the shelves – well, physically hit the shelves, electronically hit the metaphorical electronic shelves, you know what I mean . . .

Thank you to everyone who’s picked it up. Thank you very much indeed – I hope you enjoy it. I can’t say much more than that. I mean, I really, really hope you enjoy it. My Lego figures on my desk of General Leia and the Fourth Doctor and Lam Ching Ying as the One-Eyebrow Priest hope you enjoy it. (They’re very cooperative. Either that or I’ve been drinking too much coffee.)

I’m delighted to share that The Mortal Word is on the Amazon list for December Best Books of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy – which is awesome! (Many other fantastic books are also there, such as Swordheart by T Kingfisher, or How Long ‘Til Black Future Month? by N. K. Jemisin, so I’m in really cool company.)

So what next? I hand in my current draft of book 6 to my editor, and I get working on book 7. Truly there is no rest for the wicked. Or for authors. And I get ready for Christmas – time to do the Christmas shopping . . .
