    Fade to Black is released at last!

    FROM THE DEPTHS OF A VALLEY RISES THE CITY OF MAHALA
    It's a city built upwards - where streets are built upon streets, buildings upon buildings. A city that the Ministry rules from the sunlit summit, and where the forsaken lurk in the darkness of Under.
    Rojan Dizon doesn't mind staying in the shadows, because he's got things to hide. Things like being a pain-mage, with the forbidden power to draw magic from pain. But when the fate of Mahala depends on him using his magic, he can't hide for ever.


    Some fabulous people have said some very nice things about it.



    And I started off here on the Chrons... (got my first ever crit here!)

    Way to go KMQ, and the best of luck (along with all the hard work you're about to be enveloped in) with it. Are you doing any book signings locally? Waterstone's in Crawley has authors reasonably often...

    Yes, noticed this come up the other day so have already ordered. :)

    A friend is being published via a Little Brown imprint next week, and I noticed Fade To Black showing on the front page of the LB site under "new books" - however, clicking through I couldn't find it there!!

    Anyway, congrats, and noticed the sequel is already showing on Amazon as well. :)

    Congratulations, Kmq! :)

    I read the chapters on the Orbit website. Good. So I raided the piggy bank, and it's on order.

    And it's already reached NZ! -- Trust me, that's an achievement in itself.

    Spotted in a local shop.

    I got Fade to Black from Amazon delivered to my house yesterday...I will be reading it as soon as I finish "The Daylight War" by Brett...I wish his book was better so I would read it faster...

    Well, not to give Kmq a big head or anything, but I read Fade To Black really fast. Mainly because I objected to putting it down. So, definitely one for you to look forward to, ratsy.

    I'm enjoying this - love the idea of the pain-mages, and the general Blade Runner feel to this world. Definitely something different in moon and content to what I've read before, though interesting to note one of Ian Whates' novels was also based in a city tower.
