Thu, 26 May 2011 in the spotlight

The image on the right happened the night after I returned to my hotel room after the ZeBBie Awards in Dublin.
Perhaps there was a version of “I feel pretty” playing in my head, as I don’t get the opportunity to dress up often.
This started as a blurry picture of me without my glasses [...]

Wed, 18 May 2011 Róisín Dubh 1 out

There’s been a lot of fuss and bother in Dublin over the last two days: roads closed and traffic diverted, which has made some people cross.
On the same day royalty arrived in Ireland issue 1 of Róisín Dubh was delivered safely to Sub-City in Dublin despite the government kowtowing.
If you wish to purchase it online it [...]

Thu, 05 May 2011 project updates

The good news is that issue 1 of Róisín Dubh is at the printers, and we’ve even got the proofs. Fingers crossed it should be available at the end of next week.
It’s been a long road with this comic book series. Rob Curley of Atomic Diner pitched the idea to me in the summer of [...]

Mon, 04 April 2011 Roisin Dubh 1

After a delay on the Róisin Dubh comic book we’re getting close to a release of the first issue.
It’s a three-issue mini-series, and this is the cover of the first chapter of the story, drawn by Stephen Byrne. Stephen Byrne is doing all the lettering and covers, as well as the interior art for issue [...]

Fri, 21 May 2010 not at Bristol, alas

This weekend the Bristol International Comic & Small Press Expo is taking place and I can’t attend, alas.
Luckily, my compatriots in crime, Rob Curley and Stephen Daly, will be at Bristol, giving away preview issues of Róisín Dubh. Drop by the Atomic Diner stand, say hello to them and claim your copy!
As long as the [...]

Tue, 23 March 2010 a jaunt in the UK

I’m off to Brighton tomorrow morning to attend the World Horror Convention, which should be fun.
I’ll be moderating a panel on Saturday at noon, in the Russell Room, called Femme Fatales: How Can We Get More Women in Horror?, where I’ll be in the distinguished company of Ellen Datlow, Tanith Lee, Allyson Bird, Sarah [...]

Thu, 18 March 2010 graphic preview

I’ve established a web site for the Róisín Dubh graphic novel I’m working on. I’ve been blogging intermittently about the project for the past couple of months.
There’s also a twitter feed and a Facebook fan page, if you like either of those media.
Artist Stephen Daly has been working flat-out, lettering and making tweaks to [...]

Mon, 25 January 2010 podcasts and plans

The podcast of my story, “The Tamga” is now available as issue 178 on Pseudopod, read by the talented Cheyenne Wright.
It’s always a thrill to have my work podcast, because it gets it out to such a wide audience. Plus, the Pseudopod team produce excellent recordings. Cheyenne does a great job with the story. He’s [...]

Tue, 05 January 2010 news for the new year

Welcome 2010: minty-fresh and full of hope.
I’ve some news I’ve been sitting on for no good reason, other than my motivation for blogging suffered a sap across the forehead late last year.
In December I sold the audio right to my story “The Tamga” to Pseudopod. I’m delighted I’ll soon have another story up [...]

Fri, 21 August 2009 end of summer round-up

I’ve never had such a long gap between blog posts before, I guess that means I’ve been busy.
Time to herd some news stories across the prairies.
I sold my sf-horror story, “Empty Mind Came Back With the Pearl”, to M-Brane SF a while ago. It will appear in issue 9. I’m delighted this story will get [...]
