Just popping in to let you know that we’ll be featuring regular SFF reviews on this site to complement Krista’s Graphic Novel reviews. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time but I needed the right person. Jamie Marriage who was with us over at Burn Bright then left to focus on his own work, has returned to the team in this new capacity, and I’m delighted to have him back! Here’s a bit about Jamie.

Jamie Marriage is an internationally published Australian CyberPunk author with a taste for the dangerous and obscene aspects of life. His work ranges from the sarcastic to the satirical. Links to his stories can be found at www.JamieMarriage.com.

Wave to him everyone!

In other news, we’ve got an amazing interview series going on over at the Marianne Delacourt site where we’re talking to both famous and anonymous psychics. So far we’ve interviewed Jessica Adams, Ezio and Michelle de Angelis and “Ann”.

Having just finished the SHINE LIGHT book tour, we’ve returned to regular content at Burn Bright but I have a new series starting over there soon where we talk to our favourite book bloggers and learn more about why they do what they do!

Writing-wise, I’m having a break over Xmas while I gear up for next year. In my break time I’m plotting a brand new crime series which will be out in 2013. But more on that in time…

December sees the release of Dark Space (Book 1 of the Sentients of Orion series) through E-Reads in e-book in the US. To accompany the release (the rest of the series will follow in consecutive months), super SF artist Wayne Haag is creating a small graphic novel around one of the pivotal scene of the series. I am SOOO excited about this!!!

Even better news is that it will be available for readers for free! It’s wonderful to get a chance to work with Wayne, and I’m thrilled to see Mira Fedor brought to life in this medium.

Check back tomorrow for the first of Jamie’s reviews. TTYL!

The feeling of sending a novel off to your editor/publisher is quite euphoric. Having done that last Friday (Tara Sharp 3) I headed off to Supanova feeling light and deserving of a break.  In that frame of mind, how could I fail to have fun at my favourite event!

Many thanks to Ineke for making my stay on the Dymocks stall so pleasant and a big wave to my fellow authors – Ian Irvine, Cory Daniells, Kylie Chan, Tracey O’Hara and Keri Arthur (and Trent Jamieson, who was there on Saturday) for being such good company. It feels like home from home with my Supanova family; Missy, Fel, Q-dog, Bruce, Tiarne, Chris and Dion and Daniel and the Z family. One of the highlights of the weekend was having my photo taken with all of Damien’s Dr Who’s. I also caught up with a bunch of friends including Dinah Saur, Rupert, Allan, Maddy etc and finally got to meet Sean the Bookanaut.

While I was off cavorting, some things popped up on the net, including my interview with Holly Harper at Readings Books and Yunyu and my interview with The Spotlight Report, my favourite entertainment e-zine. I also blogged about Twelfth Planet’s Press’s World Fantasy Award win.

Ryssi made some neat Night Creatures badges for fans – so help yourself:

 

And I think that’s the current crop of news. I have Tom Taylor coming up in Super Creatives and (I hope) the director of the Gold Coast Film Festival. Stay tuned!
