Peter McLean Goes to Prison

Peter-McLean-1-p19goripnm6vk2q3c3rufj1pdv1-225x300Now and again our authors get requests to give talks to interested parties and aspiring authors. Sometimes these requests are from prisons, which is exactly what happened to Peter McLean the other week, as he was asked to speak to inmates at HMP Norwich.

So, in Peter’s own words…

A couple of weeks ago I went

All things Fantasycon and the winning of lovely awards

bfs_1Sorry to report but the Robots are a little rust-tinged and creaky this morning, as we attempt to kickstart ailing battery packs back to life after a splendid weekend at the UK Fantasycon, organised by the British Fantasy Society. Held in the once-majestic shambolic splendour of the Grand Hotel in Scarborough, a combination of wonderful people, fine autumnal seaside weather and us winning the Best Independent Publisher 2016 award made for a
