And finally… Library Journal Reviews listed OSIRIS as their Sci Fi/Fantasy Debut of the Month for July – very cool indeed.

OSIRIS on Audible and other things

Some good news this week and a few links – firstly, I’m very happy to announce that Audible have bought the rights to publish OSIRIS in audible format (US). Details of publication dates and further information to follow when available.

The Qwillery very kindly had me over for an interview posted on 9 June 2012, which you can read here:

Finally, I’ve missed posting a few Night Bazaar posts over the last couple of weeks, so a few back links:

Week 10′s discussion topic was “Anti-hero doesn’t mean bad guy!”:

Week 11′s discussion topic was “Writing on cultures that are not your own”:
http://night-bazaar.com/everything-is-autobiographical-and-everything-is-fictional.html

And this week’s discussion topic is “Comics: tights vs existential angst”. I know very little about comics, but happily I remembered Michael Chabon’s wonderful The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Klay which provided some much needed inspiration for this post:

And as usual, there are lots of great posts from the other Night Bazaar writers on the same topics. Only one week left for me at the Night Bazaar – next week we’ll be discussing “Managing promotion vs writing vs your personal life” – on which I’m sure there will be plenty to discuss…
