• 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!

  1. I’m chatting with Karen Miller and a wonderful group right now! It’s fantastic, insightful and…well just come over and see for yourself!

    Join in! It’s so much fun!

    🙂 Kim

  2. I think I just missed it – how disappointing!

  3. I don’t think there are logs either–

    Karen’s great. So articulate and warm…and positive!

    I was late…getting there took a little bit of doing-downloading. And at first it’s like LAx….I get so lost in airports! But everyone is super helpful.

    I’m off to Book Promotions: What works and what should be buried in a bucket, under the ocean, of a distant planet, in another universe? next, then Jenny Fallon!

    wooo hooo Flycon rocks! 🙂

  4. I shall be having a look at that forum discussion when I get back – if it’s like Conflux then hopefully the posting can continue even after the alloted hour – and as you can imagine it’s a topic dear to my heart 🙂

  5. I think this forum style on the ‘Aboygoesonajourney’ site will stay up. I’m there now–very interesting and diverse! A little tricky for guests to post (lost my PW) but worth it…

    ppl from all over the world giving insights into promotion!!!! Wow

  6. I read somewhere that they are going to try to make transcripts available – although that may only be possible on some sites. I think one of them was going have pdfs available afterwards. Great for the panels running at 3am Sydney time!

    I think I am going to have con-lag by Monday anyway…

  7. Thanks Vertigo – I sure hope so – because I need my beauty sleep!
