I'm very happy that my publisher, Barry Scott at Transit Lounge, likes my new novel and will publish it in October, 2015. It's a sequel, but is deliberately self-contained, so does not rely on reader knowledge of "In Search of the Blue Tiger." It picks up the story five years on, with Oscar Flowers, the Fishcutter Twins, Mrs April and Brother Saviour engaging a host of new characters, including the Mayor of Tidetown (with his sycophantic Deputy and dreadfully spoilt daughter), a sangoma washed up on the shores from Africa, and a Harlequin-turned-monk (whose tongue was ripped as a child). There's war and plague, magic and murder, and life on the ocean waves tra-la. All I need is a title. Any ideas?
Thoughts on upcoming events, new book ideas, and the agonies and ecstasies of the creative process.
