Not enough that I blog here. I only have to go and guest-blog elsewhere. This is on the estimable Liz de Jager’s My Favourite Books site, and basically details how I started writing for Barrington Stoke and reveals a little of the actual process of writing for reluctant readers.
Liz sent me some chocolates in return for penning this piece, and I have to say that they’re so tasty, I’m wondering if I shouldn’t have a chocolate clause written into all my book contracts in future. In addition to, not in lieu of, currency payment, of course.
Speaking of which, I’m just about to sign a two-book deal with Solaris, which I’m naturally delighted about. Working titles for the two books are Redlaw and Dust, and I can’t wait to get cracking on them both. There’s still The Age Of Odin to finish first, mind.
