I have some dates coming up that I'd like to share with you.
Firstly, and inconveniently just before the new book, I'm at Edge Lit doing various panels & c. in Derby on Saturday the 13th July.
After that, War Master's Gate is well and truly released into the wild on the 1st August (and, from experience, anything up to two weeks beforehand, as things tend to just hit the shelves as soon as they hit the stockroom unless there's some serious reason not).
On the 8th of August, which is slightly awkwardly a Thursday, I am doing something of a Little Tour, in that I will be hitting the Waterstones at Milton Keynes at 2pm, and thereafter at the London Leadenhall Market Waterstones at I think 6–6.30. At both of these events I will be reading something (probably something out of the new book, let's face it, although I always prefer reading complete short stories myself), then answering questions, and then signing stuff. So if you have a lore question to stump me with, this is your big chance.
On or around the same date I should at least be signing stock at Forbidden Planet in London, so that's a good place to get hold of a signed book. I think you can mail order them from there as well.
From 9th-11th August it's Nine Worlds Geekfest at which I am also doing Stuff, although I fully expect to be completely eclipsed by the enormous amount of awesome that appears to bescheduled for it. Feel free to grab me at any time when I'm not actually on a panel to talk, signings, or to buy me a drink. Buy me enough drinks and I'll sign anyone's book with any name you like.
And there's the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton in November, but enough time for that later.
I also have several short stories coming up, and indeed some rather special short story news. Which I am currently forbidden to tell in case it turns out to be bunkum. So that's a bit of an announcement fail.
