O Príncipe da Prisão Dourada

The Portuguese version of The Princes of the Golden CageO Príncipe da Prisão Dourada—has just gone on sale! I’m very excited about that! It's the fourth book in a fantasy collection for YA called T.E.E.N., an acronym for Tonifica E Estimula os Neurónios (in English: Tones up and Stimulates Neurons). Hey, I’m all for that! :)
The cover, which I adore by the way, is in keeping with other books in the collection. The publisher is Saida de Emergencia, and if you browse through their website you’ll find authors like George R.R. Martin, Charlaine Harris, Guy Gavriel Kay, Harry Turtledove, Robin Hobb, Dan Simmons and Clive Cussler, just to name a few…and moi! Woohoo!

SF Creatives

Lynda Williams and I will be hosting another SF Creatives meeting, Thursday, October 8, at Books and Company. I invite readers and writers to drop in and share their favourite books with us. Each person gets a turn and takes part in discussion about other people's choices. Informal, friendly and fun, with a focus on science fiction and fantasy, we start at 7 pm.

The Genre Fiction Generator

Perfect for those who are creatively challenged! More.

Bickering characters

I’m fed up with my two lead characters. They are constantly at each other’s throat for no good reason. Seriously, I can’t write a scene without having them fight. I swear, if they don’t simmer down soon, I’ll kill them both. :-(
