What's been happening - An update!

DEMON DANCE - Book 3 The Vampire Gene

As most of you are aware, Demon Dance is written and is with my publisher. We're hoping for a FantasyCon Launch, and so far I can't see any reason why it shouldn't be ready for September.

If you aren't going to make the Convention but would like a copy then please pre-order by clicking the cover in the sidebar to the right. Murky Depths can post copies to anywhere in the world, and if you want it signed, then make the request with your order.

Here's a little blurb to wet your appetite ...

"How would a twenty-first Century new-born vampire feel if she found herself thrust back in time to the very dawn of creation? Leaving behind her lover and maker Gabriele, Lilly, the youngest vampire, treads a path between instinct and survival: always living in fear of paradox. Demon Dance is the third novel in a trilogy, and follows the story of modern vampire Lilly as she lives through several lifetimes trying to ensure that the future she knows isn’t changed by her actions in the past."

"Enticing, shocking and delightful" Simon Clark


Some good news for book 2, Futile Flame, which is a finalist in ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards in the Horror category. The awards ceremony will take place on 26th May in New York at BookExpo America.

Also, Futile Flame is on the British Fantasy Society Awards Longlist. Members of the BFS can vote up to 31st May 2010 to decide on what the shortlist will be, before another round of voting will decide the winner.

We need your vote.
If you've read Futile Flame and deem it worthy of Best Novel, and are a BFS member, then please support the small presses and vote for the novel. (If you haven't read it email me for a PDF, or if you liked another book more - then vote for your favorite! Because that's what it's all about anyway!!!)

I'm delighted that Futile Flame has drawn so much attention and is so well liked but would like to say a hearty "Good luck!" to all finalists in ForeWord Magazine's Awards and to all those super titles that have made the longlist for the BFS Awards.

Have a great week guys, and I will try to keep you more informed of my progress in the future.
