Reddit AMA tomorrow!

My Reddit Ask Me Anything will be tomorrow, Thursday April 13th.  It’ll be going live at 12 noon GMT, and will stay active for 24 hours.  I’ll try to keep checking back in regularly and answering questions until Friday noon.  

If you don’t know what an AMA is, here’s the link from the one I did last year.  Basically it’s what it sounds like – anyone can come along and ask me questions about Bound, the Alex Verus series or anything else.  You’ll need a Reddit account to post questions, but that’s easy to set up.  Hope to see you there!

Bound Release Week

And it’s finally here!  Bound, the eighth Alex Verus novel, will be released on Tuesday in the US, and Thursday in the UK.  For those who don’t mind spoilers, there’s another early review, this one from The Genre Minx.

In the meantime, I’m still working on Alex Verus #9.  About 60% done now, just need to keep going.

Reddit AMA, The Sequel

I’m going to be doing another Reddit AMA to follow up on the release of Bound.  It’ll be three weeks from now on April 13th, about a week or so after the book’s release, so the early readers among you will have a chance to ask me stuff based on the book’s contents if you like!  For those of you wondering what a Reddit AMA is, here’s the one that I did last year:  I had a lot of fun doing it, so decided to give it another go this time around.  I’ll post the link when it goes live on the day and I’ll be around to answer questions for 24 hours or so.

We also have another early review of Bound, this one from One Book Two.  As always, be wary of reading it if you want to avoid spoilers!

Bound – Starred Review from Publishers Weekly

A very nice first review from Publishers Weekly.  I’ve included an edited version of the review below – be warned, the full version contains mild spoilers, so don’t click on the link if you’re sensitive about such things!  

Once again, release date is April 6th UK, and April 4th US.  

The outstanding eighth Alex Verus urban fantasy (after Burned) begins with morally grey diviner Alex and his ally, life mage Anne, being forced to do the bidding of Dark mage master Richard Drakh and his crony Morden . . . whether the assignments are risky or trivial, all somehow aid the cause of evil. The distinction between the Dark and Light groups of mages has become thoroughly blurred . . . people and concerns from earlier novels are carried forward successfully as Alex tries to figure out what he can and should do with his life. Sustaining interest inside a long story line like this depends on maintaining action, developing characters, and intelligently extrapolating magical possibilities. Jacka is doing a splendid job in all respects, and this volume builds up to a jaw-dropping cliff-hanger climax. (Apr.)
