I’m still recovering from my latest hard drive fail and am slowly loading necessary software and data. What a colossal pain!

In amongst that and my Tara Sharp deadline, I written a few blog posts. One is for Tehani Wessely on Indie Publishing, and an interview with Readings books about Angel Arias, and a blog about Peacemaker for Geek Speak magazine. All these are upcoming and I’ll post the links soon.

Brigitte now has the manuscript for issue 2 of Peacemaker and is sketching some new characters for me to peruse. This issue will introduce Caro Jenae (journalist) and Indira Chance (detective) and abounds with action. So excited to see the sequences!

Other than that, it’s business as usual in the MDP office. My interview with the talented Tom Taylor Made is coming up soon as well. And following that I’ll be talking to the the comic legend, Marv Wolfman. I hope you’ve been enjoying meeting the varied creative types that have been visiting the MDP site over the past twelve months or so.

Next weekend, I’ll be part of the Gold Coast Writers Literary luncheon and am looking forward to meeting a bunch of new peeps. And not long after that is SheKilda and Supanova. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bris Writers Festival last week but did find the commuting into the city quite tiring. Glad I’m not doing a billion Xmas bookstore signings this year like in 2010.

Angel Arias is out in about ten days, so look for it in your bookstores (if you still have one near you!!). As of Ocotber 3rd you’ll be able to use the QRTag in the back of the book to download, Bluebeard, the song that Yunyu has made available as a complement to the book. I’m sure you’ll find them brilliantly suited to each other. For those that don’t have QR readers on their phones, we’ll be providing an url as well.
