Win a copy of Extinction Game

So somehow I missed this: SFX are currently running a competition to win one of five copies of Extinction Game, and you can find details of how to enter here.

In other news, I just more-or-less finished the draft of the book that will follow Extinction Game some time next year. I think I feel comfortable in appending the term 'rip-snorting adventure' to this one. I say 'more or less' because there's a few tiny tweaks - literally just a sentence or two that need to be added here and there - but outside of that, it's done, and I might actually manage to write a couple of blog entries some time soon. It's been pretty much heads down, fingers on keyboard for this book since February. 

There should be a brief interview appearing some time soon-ish at Australia's Booktopia online bookselling website. There's another one to do for someone else, and an article to write on related matters as well. 

Just a reminder - this is not your typical post-apocalyptic story. Not by a looooong stretch. You know me better than that, right? It's the people who survive that kind of shit that interest me a great deal more than the actual means by which the end of the world comes about.

In fact, it's not so much post-apocalyptic as meta-apocalyptic.

Yeah. I said it. Meta-apocalyptic. 

Now to enjoy the once-yearly phenomenon of having actually finished something. Until my editor suggests changes. And then line-edits. And then more edits. And then...
