Things upcoming…

A variety of things coming from or involving me in the near future, and really I ought to have been a little bit more ‘on this’ (I am my own worst publicist)

So, firstly:

Continuing with the anthology theme, my short story ‘The Looking-Glass Girl’ will be included in ‘Ten: Thou Shalt Not’, a Ten Commandments themed anthology edited by Alex Davis, coming soon from Tickety Boo Press. Featured authors include¬†Mark West, Jasper Kent, Stuart Young, Jeff Gardiner, Pat Kelleher, Niki Valentine, Danuta Reah, Amanda Bigler, Jacey Bedford and Clare Littleford – and myself, of course. Each author will be tackling one of the ten commandments.

And in non-writing related news, I am on the jury for two of the British Fantasy Awards – Best Non-Fiction with Johnny Mains and Jason Arnopp, and Best Horror Novel (the August Derleth award) with Cate Gardner and Jim McLeod. Shortlists for this should be up in early July! I’ll also be at Fantasycon itself – I’ll probably be the terrified looking, small tattooed person in the corner trying to pluck up courage to talk to people.
