New Video

Just uploaded a new promotional video I made for The Shadow Project to my Author's Page on You can view it and see the whole Author Page at

(If you're reading this blog entry on the Author Page already — since blog entries are syndicated there — then it's on your right.)

The important thing about all this is that the cat who makes a brief appearance is The Wobber. (He wanted me to tell you that.) The stone circle is on the front lawn of my home in Ireland. The camerawork and voice over were both by my gorgeous wife Jacks. And, as you might imagine, the video was enormous fun to make.

Now let's hope it sells a ton of books.

Done that then.

The Faeman Girl is finished! A smidge under 91,000 words emailed to my agent yesterday and scheduled for publication by Bloomsbury next autumn. Bloomsbury U.S. are already working on the cover, which they want to have a strong family resemblance to the first four of the Faerie Wars books. Actually the first four, Faerie Wars, The Purple Emperor, Ruler of the Realm and Faerie Lord are really a single story stretched across four volumes while Faeman (the term denotes a faerie/human hybrid) is a stand-alone book set in the Faerie Realm about sixteen years after the time of Faerie Lord. But there are still some familiar faces in Faeman including Blue and Henry, Madame Cardui, Chalkhill and Brimstone and an important bit of Lord Hairstreak. Can't wait to see it in print.
