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!

With my Burn Bright book tour just around the corner, I thought it was time I put some links up. If you’re in Sydney, Yunyu and I’ll be at Galaxy Books (23rd March, 5.30), Ultimo Library (21st March, 4-5pm) and Kinokuniya (24th March, 6pm).

Following that I’ll be back in Brisbane for a week, visiting libraries. (Look in the sidebar for details). Then back down to Melbourne where events are yet to be confirmed.

And there have been some gratifying reviews for Burn Bright so far, none more than the two at Inside A Dog.

And Marcus has just finished the March newsletter which is a Burn Bright special.

Marianne de Pierres Newsletter 09.03.2011

I’ll be doing a drive by interview at Angela Slatter’s blog as a lead up to World Con, and another interview over at Strange Candy Reviews. Interviews and reviews must be in the air because over at my young adult website Bec, Belinda, Jamie and Amy will be reviewing YA on a regular basis. Bec is still running the Big 4 interviews with upcoming interviews from Ann Aguirre and Kelley Armstrong and LM Fuge.
