• 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!

     

     

Happy New Year!

From all of us at Voyager, Happy New Year and welcome to a new decade!

We’re not future-tellers, so we can’t say exactly what the next ten years will bring, but some things are guaranteed … like great books from your favourite Voyager authors, and a celebration all year round because 2010 marks fifteen years of Voyager world-wide!

Plus this year will bring the World Con/AussieCon 4 in Melbourne in September, the completion of Sara Douglass’s DarkGlass Mountain trilogy, a new trilogy by Kim Falconer, starting with Strange Attractors, new books from Duncan Lay (The Risen Queen is already in stores), K J Taylor (continuing on from The Dark Griffin), Traci Harding (continuing the Triad of Being series), Glenda Larke (with the sequel to the bestselling The Last Stormlord, Stormlord Rising), debut books from Blake Charlton, Mary Victoria, Stacia Kane and much, much more!

We’ll have early chapters for you to read online – and keep you posted on all the celebration events that will take place in 2010. Enjoy the rest of the seasonal break!

  1. And Happy New Year! in return to all at Voyager. I really enjoyed the blog, Captain’s Log, Purple Zone and various stories by PZ authors during in 2009; am sure 2010 will have a lot to offer.

    I’ve sent in my application for Aussiecon4, so look forward to seeing Voyager/Purple Zone crew in Melbourne in early September. 🙂

    Cheers!
    Tim/Farnwyn

    • Excellent, will look forward to meeting you at last, Tim!

      • Natalie: I am soooo looking forward to Aussiecon4/Worldcon it’s almost ridiculous. 🙂 It’ll be great indeed to meet you and many other PZers, Voyager blog-followers at the awesome gathering.

  2. Am very much looking forward to Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series 🙂

    • Happy New Year to all readers of Voyager books and all my fellow Voyager authors.

      And my thanks to all Voyager staff for your efforts throughout 2009. I hope to meet more of you in person in 2010!

      • Happy new year to you too Glenda! Hopefully you’ll get to meet plenty of us in person come September – we’re planning to storm AussieCon 🙂

    • Us too – will looking into getting reading copies sent out.

  3. Wooo, book two! Woo!
    Actually, this year both books two and three of my own series will come out. I’ve just received the advance copies of book two, and they look beautiful. Already planning the launch!

    I’m gonna be at AussieCon, too. Say, Natalie, if you’re going to be there could you maybe introduce me to GRRMartin seeing as how we’re fellow Voyager authors? I’ll slip ya a fifty!

    • Hahahahahahahaha. I am immune to bribery but not flattery 😉 and I can assure you, Katie, that I will be hanging out to meet the great GRRM too – will definitely perform introductions if possible – no fifties needed but maybe your signature on my copy of The Dark Griffin ;).

      • Hey, no problem. I’m an author; I’ll sign anything.
        I heard GRRMartin turned 84 today – I always thought he was way younger than that!

      • Slight exaggeration I think – he was both in 1948 🙂 (according to Wikipedia anyway)

      • Hrm. Well, there’s nothing on his blog. I was just repeating what a US-based friend just told me.
        Better delete that birthday message off my LJ then- don’t want to go spreading false information!

  4. Well I’ll have to save for the Aussie-con but for that is in the beginning of September. It will be a late entry but I’ll try to be there. That is my new year plan.

    Happy New year to all.

    Cheers
    RC70/Magnus

    PS. for all Purple Zoners now you know me here.

    • Happy new year Magnus! Hope you’ll scrape together enough for AussieCon – I think it will be well worth it …

  5. Happy New Year, Captain and all Voyager Staff! What a grand year it will be!

    Thank you everyone for all the wonderful support and encouragement and book talk (and Tanith Lee camaraderie) in 2009! Looking forward to more in 2010.

    Hint: Set NY intentions on the New Moon Eclipse January 15. Until then, cruise!

    Best wishes and see you all at AussieCon 2010!
