It's all Dutch to me![Posted 30-May-2008]
So, today I received my extremely handsome copies of The Innocent Mage, the Dutch version. Wow, it's so beautiful! Huge thanks to my Dutch publisher Boekenwereld, for the lovely lovely job they've done.
And can I just say how utterly peculiar it feels, to see my story in a language I don't understand? I hope the Dutch reading public enjoys the book, and I thank them in advance for their trust.
Now in store: Hammer of God[Posted 28-May-2008]
Well, the wait is over ... if you've been waiting. *g* Godspeaker bk 3, Hammer of God, is now available for purchase in all good Australian bookshops. It'll be out in New Zealand a few weeks later, I believe. Naturally, I hope you thoroughly enjoy it!
Three lucky winners![Posted 23-May-2008]
Thanks so much to everyone who entered the Hammer of God giveaway competition. I'm feeling quite sad now, because there were so many of you that many more missed out than were successful. But since this one went so well, I'll be sure to have more giveaways in the future.
In the meantime, congratulations to Emma, Julanne and Suzanne, who now have a signed copy each on the way to them, courtesty of Australia Post.

So I've just done a guest blogpost for the Voyager blogsite. Still struggling with some techy stuff on this site's updates, but if you cut and paste this address -- http://voyageronline.wordpress.com/-- you'll get there.
Two new interviews[Posted 07-May-2008]
For those of you who enjoy reading writers talking about writing, you might like to check out two new interviews ... thanks to Grasping for the Wind and Specusphere for the chance to blather on! I've got a computer hitch just now, so I can't do a direct link, but feel free to cut and paste the following links:

Ola! in Spain[Posted 07-May-2008]
The Innocent Mage is now on sale in Spain, in the Spanish language. I don't understand Spanish, but it all sounds very dramatic. *g* I look forward to seeing my actual Spanish copy -- and maybe showing you the cover.
