Camber Sands — London — Reading — Leeds — also Leeds — Poznan — Wroclaw — Oxford.
Probably not the weirdest signing tour anyone's ever done, but fun nonetheless.
Thank you to everyone who turned up at any of the above (1) especially those who made it to the Q&A and talk at Pyrkon, and the Q&A at Empik in Wroclaw (2). Most especially thanks to everyone at Rebis for inviting me over to Poland again.
Developments in the pipeline: I have got the first draft of book 8 finished early, and am getting some short stories done. The first one won't be for this site as currently planned, as Tor are apparently putting together an ebook compilation of short stories from various of their authors, and that's my entry. However I will hopefully get at least one and maybe more for this site before I have to knuckle down and start book 9, for which I currently have a plot but no title.
I also intend to set myself up on Twitter, but the Luddite in me has been putting it off. Watch this space(3).
There should be some new art up shortly as well, courtesy of Jaroslaw Ribski, who was my interpreter in Poznan and Wroclaw, and also the translator of Scarab Path and Sea Watch into Polish.
Anyone else who would like to submit art can pitch it to me at theinsectman (at) gmail (dot) com and I'd be glad to receive it. I am toying with the idea of posting some of my own concept art up as well, but frankly, it's awful, so I will probably spare the world.
(1) For those that turned up at other venues, I apologise for not being there.
(2) the black and gold deco on the outside of the building was sadly not followed in the Empik store, denying me a weak pun.
(3) Or, more realistically, the Twitter site.
