Great Reviews

I hate to see August leave without any posts, but I can solve that by mentioning that Ironfoot has received great reviews from both Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly.  Those are both well renowned and notoriously easy to please, friends!  And so on into September, with Ironfoot itself ever closer to publication.

Eocene Update

Eocene Station continues to flourish.  I'd hardly sobered up after  learning that it is shortlisted for the Endeavour Award when I was informed that it will be issued in audible form, probably around November. Narrator will be Damien Brunetto.

Publication Delay

The release date for IRONFOOT has been set back a week, to October 10th.  Hang on, do NOT commit suicide, it really is worth waiting for!
