• 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!

A drop in from Sara Douglass

I thought you might like to know that Sara Douglass popped by the blog today and left the following message for the Rake Squad:

I just got the email about this blog site and so had to pop in and then saw the link to The Infinity Gate. I’ll have you know I am currently typing this comment with my keyboard precariously balanced on top of the pile of pages of the edit of the book! Won’t be long now. (ha ha ha) But May of next year looks OK for release unless one of the cats eats the edit (always possible).

Thank you to all present and past rakers. I am currently in remission but at that stage where I panic at every twinge. I hope I get past this soon.

As do we all! Keep raking, everybody. And let’s hope Sara keeps the cats well fed on non-paper foodstuffs!

  1. I am hoping for that May release of The Infinity Gate–making it just in time for more than a few of our birthdays!

    Ross said it beautifully on the Infinity Gate thread: Sara, . . . there’s thousands of people behind you here in Oz, and heaps more all around the planet, every one of them holding a rake and a smile 🙂

    And, I recommend we all suggest alternative food items for Sara’s kitties. Mine particularly love mince and ‘Fancy Cat Ocean Fish Crackers’. Gratch also adores carob chips but I don’t think they’re good for his digestion.

    Best wishes to you Sara!

  2. I don’t have any cats, but my rat Joker took a bite out of the manuscript for The Griffin’s Flight while I was proofreading it. ^_^

  3. I read 2 novels every week and have done so for the past 4 years both non-fiction and fiction. Through all these books none of them have managed to so encapsulate and touch me as yours have. You have a true gift Sara, my best wishes are with you. You can defeat this 🙂 you have to as i can’t imagine a world where i’m not hanging out for your next book

  4. Keep thinging positive Sarah. I am waiting to start Chemo next week I will be thinking of you and all the people raking for you. I will survive what ever they throw at me because I can’t wait for the next book. I wish you. all the rest and am sure you will stay in remission. May god bless you and keep you strong. Kia Kaha (Stand Strong) Graham
