Wait! Don't get over-excited - Godblind has not (yet - I can hope) been optioned for film. *sad face* However, those lovely people over at mybookthemovie.blogspot.co.uk have published a piece I wrote about who I'd cast in a film/TV adaptation and why. I'd love to know if you agree - who do you think should … Continue reading Godblind, the movie
Godblind was released by Talos Press, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing, on 11 July. Phase 2 of my plan for world domination is in motion. It's now available online and in all good bookshops in the US and Canada and I'd be thrilled if you'd consider picking up a copy. Amazon's pricing algorithms have gone … Continue reading North American Godblind hits the shelves – and the German cover reveal
So on 15 June my bloody child, Godblind, was born (published). I haven't actually had chance to talk about it since then, as I've been working towards submitting book 2 (which I did with hours to go of my 1 July deadline). The lovely Natasha is now reading it, and I'm in author crisis mode … Continue reading 15 June, 2017 – book baby cometh
Last night I wrote the last words of the first draft of Godblind 2: Godblinder (not really). While this is a triumph of extreme proportions and weighs in at 130,000 magical words, it's not as triumphant as I'd wanted - my self-imposed deadline was the end of April, not 8 May. Persnickety? Maybe. But that … Continue reading Godblind 2, Draft 1, DONE
Here is a review by Peter: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1964918519 A great and honest 4 star review for Godblind. Thanks so much to Pete McLean for reading and taking the time to review so thoughtfully. Thrilled.
Like most hardcore fantasy fans, I do love a good map to help me visualise places, spaces and distances in what I'm reading. And I am, therefore, genuinely Christmas-morning levels of excited to confirm that Godblind will have a map! Said map will be created from a very rough, very awful, draft of a map … Continue reading It’s gonna have a map!
The lovely Mike Everest did a series of interviews on five fantasy authors being traditionally published this year. Here's mine: The production of a fantasy debut: Interview with Anna Stephens Let me - and Mike - know what you think!
Completely thrilled to point you in the direction of the brilliance that is the Fantasy-Faction website, which is hosting the brilliance that is Godblind's cover art, complete with an associated waffle from me and insightful comments from Marc Aplin, FF founder and all-round awesome human being. Godblind cover reveal interview And for those who can't … Continue reading Godblind’s cover art revealed
So, I can confirm that final edits - structural, copy, line - have now all been completed and Godblind in all its glory is back with my publishers. Aside from a final proofread before it goes to print, the book is done! Written! Finished! Collapses in a heap. The next step on this crazy and … Continue reading It’s the ARCs, Mr Frodo! The ARCs are coming!
Not ones I've published, by the way. Ones I've read. Published will be 2017... According to Goodreads, I read 34 books this year, which is pretty good going but down on 2015 I think, mostly because this year has been insane and crazy and wonderful and terrifying as I take my first Bambi-on-ice steps into … Continue reading My books of 2016
