I’ve written a quick summary of the Hong Kong protests and shared it on my website. You can check it out here:


Feel free to share it if you like, I have no problem with being identified as pro-democracy (and why is that even controversial.)


October Newsletter

Dark Heavens Audiobooks World-wide, including Australia!

Harper-Collins – both US/UK and Australia – have separately contracted to produce audiobooks of the Dark Heavens series. I don’t have much detail about the US/UK editions apart from the fact that they’ll be released by the middle of next year, and they will be for the entire nine-book Dark Heavens series.

The Australian audiobook of ‘White Tiger’ will be released in January of next year, and I’m lucky enough to have Jennifer Vuletic, who did the Dragon Empire books, narrating Dark Heavens. She’s a whiz with the accents and I cannot wait to hear what she does with my characters. I’ll let you know as soon as I have the release details! All of the books will be produced, so it’ll be a blast to listen to them.

Townsville October 19-20

I’ll be presenting two workshops in Townsville on the weekend. The first will be on Saturday the 19th – my famous ‘Intriguing Characters with Depth’, and then on the 20th I’ll present a workshop on ‘Fantasy World Building’. Tickets are for the entire weekend, and there are still a few places available.

Tickets available here

Really looking forward to seeing you, Townsville, and many thanks to the Townsville Writers and Publishers Centre!

November: Supanova Adelaide and Brisbane

Through the generous assistance of my patrons on Patreon, I’ll be in Adelaide for Supanova on November the 1st and 2nd. It’ll be my first visit to Adelaide in a while, so come up, bring your books, and say hello!

On November 9th and 10th I’ll be sharing a table with Isobelle Carmody and Traci Harding at Supanova Brisbane, so if you missed Oz Comic-Con you’ll still have your chance to come along and see me.

That’s all for October! Now to post an update to the Simone spinoff onto my patreon page – and would you believe, I just started a chapter zero which will give new readers some insight into who Simone is and why she’s in such an awful place.
