The David Gemmell
Awards for Fantasy



Note to aspiring writers
It’s always good to hear from you, and I’m more than happy to answer your questions about the craft of writing and the publishing business if I can.  What I can’t do is undertake to read/critique your manuscript.  Nor can I help you find a publisher or agent.  Sorry, but if I said yes to the many requests I get I’d spend all my time reading your work and never doing my own.  The best advice I can offer if you want to be a writer is … write.  A lot.  And read copiously too, to learn from the way others do it. 
Good luck!


As I mentioned in the August update, I have a story in this anthology, which the publishers intend to make an annual series. 

The book’s published on 1st November, in print and ebook formats, and can be pre-ordered via Amazon here

Those attending Fantasycon (19th-21st October) can purchase a copy early as there’s a pre-publication launch event at the convention.
