SOUL STEALERS, Book 2 in the Clockwork Vampire Chronicles, is currently gearing up for release at the beginning of May 2010 – and I’ve just had news of a great new review of KELL’S LEGEND, to coinicide neatly with this event, over at the UNBOUND blogzine:
“The vachine are an absolutely incredible concept, fascinating and slightly appalling and something I would never have expected. I loved the way they worked and found their society fascinating although clearly unpleasant.”
To read the full review, check out: http://hagelrat.blogspot.com/2010/03/kells-legend-andy-remic.html
KELL’S LEGEND has also been nominated for the fabulous David Gemmell Legend Award, and my novel was always intended as a homage to the great man Mr Gemmell himself (if you’ve never read Dave Gemmell, you should start with LEGEND and THE LION OF MACEDON, my two personal favourites and VERY highly recommended).
Anyway, if you’re feeling well disposed towards KELL’S LEGEND, you could always *cough* vote for the book at: http://gemmellaward.ning.com/page/legend-1
There’s also an interview on the DGLA site, along with a couple of reviews of KELL.
The SOUL STEALERS short film promo for the book will be released real soon, starring none other than the very hairy fantasy author, IAN GRAHAM.
I won’t be attending EASTERCON this year, mainly because my little boy has just had his tonsils out and I want to spend some quality time with the family over Easter. Every year I curse Eastercon because I miss my kids opening their Easter eggs– why don’t they organise it for the week before/after?? Anyway, for those desperate to meet me (all 1 of you, haha) I’ll be at WORLD HORROR CON in Brighton. Although all the tickets have sold out for the con itself, I will be available in the bar where, in the guise of GRUNGE FILMS, will be filming and interviewing many notables in the horror industry.
Check out www.grungefilms.com for info on my amateur filmmaking efforts.
Finally, I’ll be doing a few book signings in the US this May to coincide with the official release of KELL’S LEGEND over there, probably around MIAMI, TAMPA and ORLANDO, although dates/venues tbc.
