If you’re coming to the Supanova convention in Sydney this weekend, you’ll be able to pick up the first three Wolf House novels (in both digital format on very pretty USB data sticks and a very, very small promotional run of paperbacks which I’m selling at-cost, because I’m just marvelously good to you like that) and also the following three posters in A3 and A4, with art by Audrey Fox and text by me.
If you can’t get to Supanova, here are the posters for download. The files are over a megabyte each, but they’re terribly nice to look at.

I really am going to try to be better at updating this blog. Here are the main news items!
1. Books one and two are going to be released in a combined hard copy in about four months’ time. More on that closer to the launch date.
2. Book five is ticking along. Everyone’s so far from where they started.
3. I now have a tumblr, where I throw all the random images, poems, quotes etc which I draw inspiration from in some way. Check out its random image function here (may be a not-work-safe image; some of them have breasts and stuff in ‘em), because that’s basically how I use it — I hit ‘random’ and then try to write on the image which comes up. Oh! And if you’re into the twitter thang, I’m over here.
4. The best way to keep up with my regular whining about how hard it is writing trashy vampire novels about punk teenagers and how tortured and miserable I am is still through the Wolf House tag in my livejournal.
FAN ART IS THE MOST AWESOME THING EVER, I LOVE IT. THE OTHER MOST AWESOME THING EVER IS FANFICTION, SO YOU SHOULD GO LOOK AT THIS STORY BY THEONLYTWIN
OH MY GOSH MY FACE LOOKS LIKE THIS RIGHT NOW: *____*

Cover artist Audrey Fox and I are currently in the process of creating a short comic about the Wolf House series for one of my favourite zines in the world, Pretty Good for a Girl.
The following conversation took place over email while Audrey was at the tattoo parlour waiting to get a chest piece done, and I was at my desk at my day job as an assistant editor for a nonprofit journal. Because that’s just how we roll.

Yet more content about books you can’t buy yet! Woo!
Um, by which I mean that the cover and excerpt for book three, Fair Game, are now to be found in the appropriate places.
And how amazing are Audrey Fox’s covers, seriously, I feel completely honoured to have my words and stories wrapped up in such glorious shiny packaging. Book three’s cover star is Timothy, a vampire with a talent for mesmerism and a love of riot grrrl and queercore music. He seems to have spilled something on his shirt.

It seems silly for me to scrabble around in search of something to say when the first book hasn’t come out yet. Welcome! Hopefully this site will eventually have a veritable plethora of interesting content to amuse the senses and delight the soul and all that stuff.
I’m about five thousand words away from finishing Fair Game, the third book of the series. I tend to read voraciously when I’m writing, and two of the books I’ve read while working on book three have been Factory Girls by Leslie T Chang and Frankenstein: A Cultural History by Susan Tyler Hitchcock, both of which I enjoyed very much. It’s possible I maybe even learned a thing or two, but that’s up for debate.
