I tweeted recently that I’d had a request for an interview from a fantasy fan in Cuba. Here he is – Gonzalo very kindly sent me a picture of himself and his much-prized copy of Bajo la Hiedra. Note the finger carefully marking his place . . .
Fantasy books are pretty difficult to obtain in Cuba; due to their currency not being internationally traded Cuban readers can’t just pop onto Amazon or The Book Depository whenever they fancy something new to read. After hearing about my book on the Internet, Gonzalo only managed to get hold of a copy by asking a friend to bring it with her when she came to visit.
If you speak Spanish, Gonzalo runs a fantasy blog and was impressed enough with my last rant to go to the trouble of translating it for his readers. I don’t know what on earth came over him.
There’s going to be no getting away from me in the next few weeks, I’m afraid. Sorry about that.
Aidan Moher has very kindly invited me to write a guest post for A Dribble of Ink, whilst he has a few days off to go and do something far more interesting than blogging. I’ll do my best not to tread mud into the carpets whilst I’m there. Check it out on Monday 9th May!
I’m also putting in an appearance in the June issue of Words With Jam, rubbing shoulders (figuratively speaking) with none other than J K Rowling.
Speaking of magazines, this time in print, SFX have an interview with yours truly in the current issue, available now.
Busy, busy, busy. It’s a wonder I get any writing done. Enjoy!
