On the road and in the ether...

AURORA is out! And there's lots going on.

I'll be travelling about in person, talking about the Exodus trilogy to people in various places over the next few weeks, including the West End Festival (which is practically on my own doorstep so I'd better stock up on tea and biscuits, just in case) and the Edinburgh Book Festival. There will be another event there on Aurora on August 13th.

I'll also be travelling all through the ether on a blog tour, talking to Bookwitch and Bookette (who sound as if they should duet), Mary Hoffman and The Book Lantern (who sound as if they should be a fantasy series) and various other sites.

I'll put up links to all this - and more - as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, here is an article I wrote on the current craze for dystopian/apocalyptic fiction ('The New Dystopalypse') in Saturday's Scotsman.

"Have teenagers, fed on an everyday diet of terror - war, recession, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, swine flu - become disaster junkies?"

Well, have you? What do you think?

I am reading Aurora right now! So happy that it came out so quickly in Sweden. It is soooo exciting so far - will continue right away! Thank you for sharing this amazing work that somehow gives more meaning to my life xD.. //Anna -


That's so great that you got hold of it in Sweden already, Anna! X

I read Aurora earlier this month - it was a beautiful book, with an interesting twist at the end...
I must say I am a disaster junkie. But I know it will end soon! Matthew Chapter 24. Also, China will overtake Anglo-America in economy. This was also prophecied in the Bible. :) But I do like a good dystopian novel now and again!
