Lots of things going on. First off, as per this site's front page, I'm very pleased to report that Dark Places won the 2005 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.

Second, BLOOD PRICE is on the verge of publication. Tomorrow (!) is the official release date for the UK hardcover edition; July 13th is Canada's trade paperback release date; and October 10th is the trade paperback release in both the UK and the USA. (But generally books don't actually reach bookstores until 2-3 weeks after the official release dates.)

Third, I've finished Book Three, which has the working title BLACK BLOC (which will almost certainly change). It will be published in the UK this time next year. I don't yet have a contract for this book in Canada, the USA, or anywhere else, but watch this space.
