Many thanks to the Campaign for the American Reader for featuring The Waking Fire on their blog, and for inviting me to take part in the ‘Page 69 test’, where I comment on the 69th page of the book and how fits in with the rest of the story and provide a few musings on casting choices should the book ever become a movie (I should stress that this is definitely not a possibility at this time).
In other Waking Fire news, I’ve compiled a list of reviews received so far below:

And finally, for any Raven’s Shadow fans who ever wondered what it would be like to play Keschet, French reader Rémi has coded up a free-to-play online version which you find here: http://remi.apps-web.net/Keschet/Keschet. Rémi tells me he’s still working on it so expect a few bugs. Also, it’s not networked so both players will need to be on the same computer and the rules are all in French. Still, it’s fun to see something I’ve written come to life and many thanks to Rémi for taking the time and trouble to make it happen.
The Waking Fire – Book One of The Draconis Memoria – is released today in the UK. It should also be available in Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand but it might take a day two to appear on vendor sites or in shops.
Many thanks to my UK editor James Long and everyone at Orbit UK for making this happen.

Huge thanks to everyone at Ace for their hard work in publishing the first volume of the The Draconis Memoria, most especially my editor Jessica Wade.
