Hi, everyone

Writing news first, The Thin Blue Line is now ready for purchase <grin>.

The good news is that we finally made it to Britain. We spent two days at LONCON UK, much to my wallet’s horror, as I spent more than I probably should have done on books and stuff. A very big THANK YOU to everyone who dropped by the Elsewhen table to see me – I sold and signed a number of books, which was a strange and surreal experience. But not an unwelcome one.

I seem to have been invited to two more conventions in quick succession. I’ve been invited by the publishers to NOVACON in the UK, in November. It’s in Nottingham, but I should be able to make it there, barring unforeseen events. We’re planning to launch the paperback copy of Necropolis there, so please come if you can.

[In related news, the paperback copy of Schooled In Magic is finally out. Please ask your local library to buy one <big grin>.]

I’ve also been invited to RAVENCON, where I may be on a panel or two. I’ve provisionally agreed to go, but for various reasons I may not be able to make it. Watch this blog for further details nearer the time.

Right now, we’re currently looking for a house in Edinburgh. Like before, it’s a pain in the butt – several places have been taken before we even knew they were there, while one place (marked as being available at once) was actually only available from October. We found a strong prospect, but we won’t know for sure for a few more days. <sigh>.

I’m planning, vaguely, to start BATG II on Tuesday or Wednesday, but it depends on how things go. I’m actually having problems with the plot, making it gel … it may be pushed back, depending. I’ve also snippeted Warspite and Hard Lessons. One of them will be coming after BATG II.

I’m also looking at ideas for a second Imperium book. (There’s three or so books upcoming, from different authors). I have a vague idea based around something like the Jacobite Rebellion, but it will take time to plot and write it.

On a different note, I would like to say ‘thank you’ to the person who sent me a book from my wish-list. Unfortunately, there was no note with the book, so I don’t actually know who to thank. So … thank you!

As always, comments, reviews and encouragement are warmly welcomed.

    another really well written installment…truly enjoyed it and it more or less had a happy ending too Chris…the postscript was well thought out and right on target too…esp with what’s going on here in the States at the moment.

    I just posted my review online at Amazon. Another great read! One thing I would mention is the Amazon Smiles project. If you go through smile.amazon.com to buy your copy of Nuttall’s book, then Amazon will contribute an amount (.05%) of your purchase to a worthy charity like the Wounded Warrior Project. It’s not much but every little bit helps.
