Throw a snaga on the barbie, maaaate

Droogs, excellent news: NEVERNIGHT has been nominated for the prestigious David Gemmell legend award!

This is my second nomination for the Legend, the first being for STORMDANCER. I was a huge fan of Laird Gemmell’s work when I was a wee nipper, so being nominated for an award with his name on it is a huge honor.My inner nerd is doing small, uncoordinated cartwheels as we speak.

For those who don’t know, finalists for the Legend Award get a cool as fuuuuuck mini replica of Snaga, the Axe of Deathwalker (which features in Gemmell’s Legend series). My first mini snaga is pictured above. The winner of the Legend gets a bigger version – not quite life-sized, but big enough to get you arrested in airports.

So, if you’d like to arm me with a huge replica of a demonically possessed battle axe, click the link below to vote: ‪

Also, NEVERNIGHT has been nominated for Best Fantasy in the 2017 Aurealis Awards, and GEMINA has been nominated in Best Young Adult and Best Science Fiction at the same show. GEMINA has also been nominated for the very prestigious Leading Edge Indie Awards, and a miiiiighty fancy LOCUS award.

And last but not least, along with its other accolades, ILLUMINAE just picked up a gong at the 2016 Cybils awards. Thanks to all the organizers and wonderful judges 🙂

Thanks for all your support!

GEMINA launch!

Droogs!

I have returned alive from our tour of the US promoting GEMINA, and have survived the Trumpocalypse. Hopefully you’re following me on other realms of social media where I’m way more active, and have been keeping up with the news, but just in case, I’m going to post a few pics of our amazing GEMINA launch party for the folks who couldn’t attend.

This was the single biggest show Amie and I have ever played, with almost 300 people packed into the Victoria State Library to help launch of our strange little bookthing. Huge thanks to Adele and all the crew at the Center for Youth Literature, as well as the mighty crew at our Australian publisher Allen & Unwin, along with the folks at SLV for loaning us the use of their digs.

There are more pics over on my facebook page. Enjoy!


GEMINA Audio Book!

So the GEMINA audiobook is also out today, and I can honestly say (having had nothing to do with the production) that it’s the best audiobook I’ve ever heard.
