Adrian Tchaikovsky, fantasy author, due to be published in July 2008. A journal to plot a course through the writing and publication process, to help up-and-coming writers, to give an insight into the industry and, let's face it, to publicise the book, just a little?
The novel is "Empire in Black and Gold", and has been picked up by Macmillan. It's the first in a fairly non-standard epic fantasy series that revolves around insect totems, evolving technology and a setting best described as "Ancient Greece meets World War II. With insects."
