Cover Art Part 1

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *ahem* I've just seen rough cover sketches for The Traitor God and I'm awestruck. That's my book, with an amazing cover (to be revealed early next year), that is going to be in bookshops and libraries across the world. Much excitement!

Cat Is Out Of The Bag

I guess the cat is out of the bag now! My good friends over at Fantasy Faction have posted the news that Angry Robot will be publishing my debut novel, The Traitor God in June 2018.  You can find the announcement and a fancy guest post from me here . Would you like to know more? The Traitor God A city threatened by unimaginable horrors must trust their most hated outcast, or lose everything, in this crushing epic fantasy debut. After ten years on the run, dodging daemons and debt, reviled magus Edrin Walker returns home to avenge the brutal murder of his friend. Lynas had uncovered a terrible secret, something that threatened to devour the entire city. He tried to warn the Arcanum, the mageocracy who rule the city. He failed. Lynas was skinned alive and Walker felt every cut. Now nothing will stop him from finding the murderer. Magi, mortals, daemons, and even the gods – Walker will burn them all if he has to. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s killed a god
