But from then on it was the Year of the Seawigs. Oliver and the Seawigs was another book I never planned to write, but it turned out that working with Sarah McIntyre is the best decision I ever made, and certainly …Seawigs is the most fun I’ve ever had writing, and the publicity campaign has been amazing. I never imagined that I’d end up as one half of a double act after all those years of solo writing. And I certainly never imagined that I’d be performing sea monkey singalongs on the Golden Hinde next to a six-foot-tall illustrator in a six-foot-tall wig, or that our book would be advertised on the London underground, but look…
So in the coming year I shall be writing the third Reeve and McIntyre Adventure (Sarah is already hard at work on final artwork for the second, Cakes in Space, which will be out next September). In April the third Goblins book will be published – it’s called Goblin Quest, and I dare say the goblins will be taking over this blog to let you know all the details nearer the time. And I shall also be returning to illustration, for a new series by Kjartan Poskitt called Borgon the Axeboy (who may or not be a relation of our old friend Urgum the Axeman).
Anyway, if you’ve been reading my stuff in 2013 (or even if you’ve just been reading this blog) thank you!
Yay! We is goingg ter TAkE AMErICA BY STorM just like tHe BEATLEs. That burk corLed GOBLINnS is out now in the U.S, with an all-new cover.
