    Titancon and Bristolcon - the inside stories

    okay, what I'm hoping with this thread (that I'll link to regularly from fb and twitter) is to give a low down of what it's like to be an author at your first convention. I could have done it on my blog but community engagement is more fun, and some of the more experienced conners like @Teresa...

    Launch night - ideas

    So, Inish Carraig launches on Friday and some of you have been chatting in fb and twitter about something for it. For those the concept is new to, the author turns up and answers questions and what not on some form of social media. At the moment I'm leaning to facebook because my family et al...

    so, Amazon moved quicker than I expected, and Inish Carraig is available in paperback here: I'm still working on getting Search Inside added, so the start can be viewed, and it will another day or so before both editions are linked (the...

    Interview with added Smut

    What I didn't do was name our eminent, upstanding (hah!) @alchemist as the lead schoolboy-giggler.... He started it all. Anyway, the fabulous Catherine Townsend did a great interview with me, with lots of hard questions. She plans a series of these, so worth marking the blog down as one to...

    Inish Carraig - free short story

    This was the prologue but I've decided to release it as a free short on my blog instead. It introduces one of the two protagonists, Henry, in a fairly gruesome manner. I hope it's enjoyable. :)

    Review: Inish Carraig by Jo Zebedee

    This is an exceptional novel. The pace is incredible, with hard-hitting characters, and a powerful plot. It’s also intelligent, and cleverly juxtaposes the sectarianism of Northern Ireland with that of two different alien races with interests on Planet Earth. The story: John is a fifteen-year...
