• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:

    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

The Painted Man on Wikipedia … a call to arms

The Painted ManIn Peter V. Brett’s latest blog entry, he points out that his recently published first book The Painted Man is now on Wikipedia:

On expanding the article, Peter says:  I would do it myself, but I feel that it would be inappropriate for an author to edit his own wiki page unless it is to correct an error (and even then, it is something best done through channels).

If anyone reading this is a Wikipedia editor, or is willing to become one, I would really appreciate some help on this. If you have any questions about sections you would like to expand, feel free to e-mail and I can answer questions or send out some of my notes on whatever the topic is.

So go to, and make it happen. You can read Peter’s full blog entry here, and keep an eye on his blog throughout the months of November (look over there to the right, he’s our Blog of the Month). The Painted Man is now in stores throughout Australia, so please, go and pick up a copy today – it’s a fantastic book. If you don’t believe me, then read the reviews from early readers.

The next book in the Demon trilogy is due out in 2009. It’s called Desert Spear … cover art currently in progress!
