Plugging shamelessly - hope you donít mind.

My new novel ďConjureĒ is almost here - hopefully, copies will be available at FantasyCon but itís getting a bit tight for that now. I saw an unbound proof yesterday and I was really pleased with it - for various reasons, this has been a long-time coming and Iím glad itís finally going to be able to make its own way into the world.

To help it along, Iíve set up an off-shoot to my website for it - http://mewconjure.blogspot.com/ - and thereís also a Facebook group at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=137118576922

Look forward to meeting up with folk at FantasyCon and for the curry trip.

No - the book was supposed to have been published earlier this year, so I didn't think I'd have anything.

Mark - there maybe reading slots available here's the PR I was given...

Author readings will be self-scheduled

A room will be set aside for readings and a blank schedule will be available at the convention reception desk. On this, authors will be able to select their own preferred slots. We envision each slot to be around 30 minutes (but we are flexible). Please book only one slot per author. However, from lunchtime on Saturday, if slots are available, authors may book further slots.

We are using this system again (it was used in 2008) in order to accommodate individual authors. If you wish to give a reading but will not be able to book your own session (due to late arrival, for example), please email and weíll try to pre-book a slot (but we wish to keep pre-booking to a minimum).

I posted a blog about Conjure - for what its worth (my blog not the book)

Cheers, Martin and thank for the blog entries too - very much appreciated.

When are you reading, Gary? I'll bring dark glasses or look out of the window.

Dear God, I hope not. I'm going to be reading, although I promise to be fully clothed. Although, to be fair, my shirts are pretty eyewatering...

Sorry, another plug - Highlander's Book Reviews have just reviewed "Conjure". And quite liked it, which is always nice.
