Spot that Pigeon

For a change I'm running a little contest with a copy of 'Shifting Perspectives' as a prize. This is a m/m shapeshifter anthology with stories by yours truly, Emily Veinglory and TA Chase. Seeing as my story involves a pigeon, I've hidden five pigeons around my website where they're currently fluttering about, pecking grain and making a mess. *g*

To enter, all you need to do is follow the instructions on the News page, find the pigeons, email me with the pages where they're hiding, and if you get all five right you'll be entered into a prize drawing on 29th February where the first out of the hat will win a copy of the book.

You can find out about the contest at my news page and you can find out more about the book at the Feathered Friend page. As to where the pigeons are hidden, you'll have to find that out for yourselves. :D

Good luck!

Website fiddling

You could call it my annual spring-clean. ;) Those of you who know me best know I like nothing better than messing about with my website, and I've just done it again. This time there was a serious edge to the change. I'd had one or two people comment that the old design was a little hard on the eyes, and the last thing I want is to put my readers off. So hopefully the new design retains the 'arty' feel but is easier to read.

It's here if anyone wants to take a look.

And stand by, because I may just have to re-do this blog as well. :D

Anthology cancelled

The first bad news of the year is that Haworth Press have cancelled 'Distant Horizons', the gay paranormal romance collection that was due out in two volumes in December 07 and January 08. Must admit I was a bit suspicious when December came and went with no sign of it; Haworth had a tendency to be slow in the past but they usually got there in the end! But now the press has been sold and I'm told the new owners don't want the gay & lesbian part of the business, and are busy terminating agreements and cancelling books left right and centre. Including ours.

It's a shame, because it was a perfect home for The Visitor, my time-travel romance. Not only that, but Haworth did a brilliant job on 'Men of Mystery', the last anthology I had a story in, and I was really impressed, and looking forward to more of the same.

However, the editor is currently looking for another publisher so perhaps we'll get lucky and find a new home for the stories. Watch this space!
