I do love receiving packages – even more so when they have the promise of books inside. Yes, Amazon have done very well out of me these past few years, but it’s nice occasionally to get a bunch of ‘free’ books and when they happen to be DestinyQuest… wooh, it's time to party!
April will see the re-release of The Legion of Shadow in Mass Market Paperback edition. In case you’re wondering what the hell that means, basically MMP is publishing speak for the cheaper version of the book, smaller and a little more portable (i.e. the size of your regular paperback). My editor contacted me earlier this week asking if I had any changes to make (bearing in mind, this would be the last time I could ever "fiddle" with the book). My immediate response was, ‘no, are you crazy?!’, after all I was relatively pleased with what I had achieved and didn’t want to start tinkering with what had gone before.

I'd normally do some waffling preamble, probably a humorous anecdote (*) or two followed by some more waffling preamble. But you know what, I think this time I'll let the images speak for themselves :)
I'm afraid I have some sad news for those of you who have pre-ordered the hardback version of The Heart of Fire or were hoping to get a copy once it is released. Gollancz have decided not to go ahead with the HoF hardback. Instead, they are concentrating on releasing and promoting the large trade paperback version.
