Unbound Anthology – My First Page

As a taster for the upcoming anthology, Unbound – Tales by Masters of Fantasy, editor Shawn Speakman was kind enough to send me the first page of my story The Hall of the Diamond Queen.

Unbound is out in e-book on 1st December, features stories by authors much more famous than I am (including Joe Abbercrombie, Jim Butcher and Mark Lawrence to name but three), and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Nook. No confirmed release date yet for the hardcover version but Shawn assures me it’s in the works, pre-order from Grim Oak Press.
