Friends Getting Published

I should have posted this last week, but I didn’t have this blog then…

My friends are getting published all over the place:

My dear friend and Egoboo WA crit buddy Joanna Fay has just released her first novel, Daughter of Hope, the fabulous Book One of a an epic fantasy quartet about gorgeous winged Gods, love, betrayal and redemption set in an amazing world of beauty and magic. You can buy it as an ebook from this link at Musa Publishing.

It was an honour to see this book evolve from first draft to finished novel. And what a stunning cover!

On the short story front, my Clarion buddy Chris Reynaga has an excellent Indian story, Trickser’s Song over at Expanded Horizons, while An Owomoyela has a story about facing truth in If the Mountain Comes, over at Clarkesworld Magazine. Congratulations to you all.

Website News

I’ve been tinkering with the website on the weekend. I like the layout and the background. I’m planning on finding a steampunky picture for my header, and when I do, I’ll probably adjust the text to match. But that may take a few weeks, so in the meantime I’m using this awesome sunrise photo taken by my lovely niece Bethany Ryles during a photography marathon called the Endless Sunrise at Byron Bay where “every year on the 15th January an army of photographers embark on a thirty day journey to capture the perfect shot of the sunrise from Australia’s most easterly point…to raise integral funds for Positive Change For Marine Life and The Jonno Howell Photographic Scholarship Fund.”

Thank you Bethany!
