Engn Release Day

Monday, 15 July 2013

Big celebrations here at Spellmaking Towers today: my Fantasy novel Engn is published by December House.




Finn's childhood in the valley is idyllic, but across the plains lies a threat. Engn is an ever-growing steam-powered fortress, that needs a never-ending supply of workers. Generation after generation have been taken away, escorted into its depths by the mysterious and terrifying Ironclads, never to return.

The Masters of Engn first take Finn's sister, then his best friend, Connor. He thinks he, at least, is safe - until the day the ironclads come to haul him away too.

Yet all is not lost, Finn has a plan. In the peace of the valley he and Connor made a pact. A promise to join the mythical Wreckers and end Engn's tyranny.

But now on his own, lost and thwarted in the vastness of Engn, Finn begins to have doubts. Is Connor really working to destroy Engn?

Or has he become part of the machine?






And to celebrate, the Engn Release Blog Tour kicks off today. I am eternally grateful to the following writers, readers and bloggers for giving me the oxygen of publicity over the next few weeks:



I shall, of course, be popping in on all these blogs as the tour progresses.


So, does this mean I can now call myself a novelist?
