    Where I Write: Leife Shallcross

    When it comes to finding the perfect writing space, there are a few things on my wishlist:

    1) Access to endless cups of tea (and also good coffee, for extra points
    2) Access to the stuff I’m using for research
    3) Inspiration to keep me focussed
    4) A door to close to minimise distractions for the perennially distractable

    Clockwork City Extract Reveal!

    By Sam Bradbury

    Clockwork City Extract Reveal!

    Next month, Gideon Tau and his foul-mouth alcoholic sidekick, Dog, return for another adventure in Clockwork City. Sequel to Poison City, Clockwork City sees them having to contend with Fae gangs fighting for territory, the murder-suicide of two Delphic agents and the seven deadly sins.

    Oh, and did I mention they also have to run a heist to break into the most secure bank in Faerie? Because that’s on the agenda too. And if they fail? An ancient horned god will destroy London.

    Just a typical day’s work, right?

    New Acquisition: A Forgery of Magic by Maya Motayne

    New Acquisition: A Forgery of Magic by Maya Motayne

    To Finnian Voy, magic is two things. The first: a knife to hold under the chin of anyone who crosses her. The second: a disguise she shrugs on as easily as others pull on cloaks.

    It’s November, which in the publishing world means two things – firstly, Fleur is sad that Halloween is over, and secondly, book deals are flying all over the place. The weather outside might be chilly (does it get this cold every year?!) but that doesn’t mean everything has to be grim, so help us bring some sunshine by welcoming the newest member of the Hodderscape family – Maya Motayne!

    Three Australian artists creating fairytale artwork that’ll take your breath away

    I have this idea that writing fairy tales is a little bit like doing a colouring-in stencil. These old, old tales supply the outlines, but it’s up to me to imagine the details and add the colours. I think this is why I love silhouette illustrations so much. They leave so much unstated and offer the viewer such a delicious opportunity to exercise their own imagination.
