The Folded Land – release and blog tour

March 19th, 2018 • Posted in Book News |

Tim’s 42nd published novel – The Folded Land – is due to hit bookshops tomorrow (though a few sightings have already reached Lebbon Towers so you might be reading it already).

To celebrate the launch Tim is doing a blog tour, which started today over at The Ginger Nuts of Horror site.  The rest of the stops are shown below and I’ll put direct links to each stop every few days.

Click the cover for details of where to order, and to read an extract.

There will be a book launch for both Blood of the Four and The Folded Land at the Foxhunter Inn, Nantyderry, on Saturday March 31st at 4pm onwards! It’s a fine pub with good ales and nice food.

WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE

In the dark underbelly of our world, there’s a black market in arcane things living and dead. Angela Gough has been pulled into this world, making her a criminal on the run.

In London she encountered the Kin – satyrs and centaurs, Nephilim and wraiths, they are hunted and slaughtered for their body parts. Fleeing back to the United States, Angela discovers that the Kin are everywhere, and they are tired of being prey.

When her niece Sammi is struck by lightning, she is drawn toward the mysterious Folded Land, and its powerful and deadly ruler. Helped by her lover Vince, caught in the midst of a Kin uprising, Angela must locate Sammi before the girl is lost forever.

March 6th, 2018 • Posted in Book News |

Blood of the Four, the 8th novel from Tim and Christopher Golden, has been released in Hardback and Ebook today in the US.  Ordering links are on the book page here

The UK release is April 19th, with pre-order links on the book page.

Happy New Book Day everyone!

In the great kingdom of Quandis, everyone is a slave. Some are slaves to the gods. Most are slaves to everyone else.

Blessed by the gods with lives of comfort and splendor, the royal elite routinely perform their duties, yet some chafe at their role. A young woman of stunning ambition, Princess Phela refuses to allow a few obstacles—including her mother the queen and her brother, the heir apparent—stand in the way of claiming ultimate power and glory for herself.

Far below the royals are the Bajuman. Poor and oppressed, members of this wretched caste have but two paths out of servitude: the priesthood . . . or death.

Because magic has been kept at bay in Quandis, royals and Bajuman have lived together in an uneasy peace for centuries. But Princess Phela’s desire for power will disrupt the realm’s order, setting into motion a series of events that will end with her becoming a goddess in her own right . . . or ultimately destroying Quandis and all its inhabitants.

2017 –– books and other fun

December 22nd, 2017 • Posted in Book News, Movie News, Movies, Random Stuff |

2017 was probably my most exciting year as a writer.  From the very beginning, I had two potential movie projects being developed, so the whole year was spent waiting for calls and emails (anyone reading this who is a writer will know where I’m coming from here).  Every call from my agent, every email, might have been The One.  The Hunt is still ticking over, but as for the other project …  eventually, that call happened.

The Silence went into production this year.  It has been a dream experience from start to finish, a real delight, and the highlight of the whole year for me was visiting set in Toronto.  There I got to meet the great actors Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka, the splendid director John Leonetti, the wonderful producers Alexandra Milchan and Robert Kulzer, as well as so many crew I forget many of their names.  Everyone was very welcoming, from Stanley (a lovely guy, and just as cool as you’d imagine), to the catering van staff, to the extras hanging around set with limbs hanging off.  An incredible experience from start to finish, and the real excitement has only just begun.  The movie is in post-production now, and 2018 will bring test screenings, trailers, all the exciting press and reviews, and then finally the film’s release.  Me?  Excited?

I can’t say much about what I saw on set, but I can post this photo of Stanley and me, and I can tell you that it is going to be am amazing film.  Everyone involved is passionate and excited about the project, and I couldn’t have asked for a better cast.  Really, the whole The Silence experience is a dream come true. And if I look tired in the photo, maybe it’s because I didn’t get the make up off properly.  And that’s all I can say about that for now…

As for more bookish things, 2017 saw the release of Relics, the first book in a new trilogy.  It was well received, and the second novel, The Folded Land, is due out in March 2018.  My novelisation of Kong: Skull Island was also released this year.

As well as The Folded Land, next year also sees release of Blood of the Four, the big new fantasy novel written with Christopher Golden, from HarperVoyager. We’re very excited about this book, and Harper are pushing it as one of their lead spring titles.  Look out for this in March of next year.

There are other screen projects in the offing, too, but nothing I can really talk about just yet.

So that’s another year done, my 11th as a full-time writer.  It’s been a good one, and there are also a couple of exciting book projects ticking over for 2018 that I hope I’ll be able to tell you more about soon.

For now, Season’s Greeting to you all, and thanks for continuing to read my books.  You keep reading, I’ll keep writing.
