• 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’d be interested in hearing from people like Tansy Rayner Roberts and Nicole Murphy talk about the experience of being new Voyager authors. I’d also like to hear from your big fat fantasy series authors about their world-building process. It’d also be cool to hear from your editors on the selection process for manuscripts, and the process of being an editor in a big publishing company…

  2. Done! I doubt they’ll be much interested in me, though. But I don’t mind; it’ll be cool enough just to explore and listen to other people waffle about their careers from on high.

  3. I’d like to hear and talk about things like getting published, rejection, Internet and other electronic delivery, query letters-first contact, reviews & critics, editor-author relationship (non-physical), genre in the postmodern world, Law of Attraction and creativity, revision for meaning, immersion, participation mystique and other worlds, character, plot, writing and the single parent, writing violence, sex and other unfamiliar things, writing and the hero’s journey …. authors and the Internet-where, what, why, how.

    Oh, I already mentioned the Internet.

    Basically, anything about writing SFF interests me!

    Must hone this list before applying 🙂

  4. I’ll happily second all the topics voted above.

    And, dammit, I am SO looking forward to being at WorldCon! Hoo-ah! 🙂

    Cheers, and have a great specfic-filled weekend
