The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf

My new novel, The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf, was published in Britain today by Piatkus. This is the third in the series of books about Kalix, coming after Lonely Werewolf Girl, and Curse of the Wolf Girl.

In The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf, Kalix has an eighteenth birthday party, attempts some self help for her many personality problems, struggles to control her substance abuse, is employed by her werewolf sister as a model, attends a debutantes ball, and finds herself in brutal conflict with the werewolf hunters. Here's a little more about the book on Piatkus's website.

New Werewolf Book, Lonely Werewolf Girl Promotion

I am gearing up for the publication of The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf on the 29th August. By which I mean doing nothing at all, really. But the book will come out anyway, even if I have been spending all my time playing Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 on my Playstation. Good games, I enjoyed them both.

In a pre-publication promotion, Lonely Werewolf Girl is on sale at Amazon Kindle this month for just £1.49. So, if you need to read the first book about Kalix MacRinnalch and learn quite why she is such a troubled young werewolf, and why her werewolf clan is generally not that impressed with her, that's a good opportunity.

I've been trying to produce a small promotional interview with myself for the launch of the new book but, for various reasons have failed so far. Next attempt may be more successful. Or may not be, given my total incompetence at almost everything.

Simulation Bleed, my free web serial, is progressing well. I update this on Mondays. At this moment, the main characters are in the middle of an X-Ray Spex gig in a small pub in Putney. Where, by co-incidence, I was myself, quite a long time ago.

Having finished Mass Effect, I have no good Playstation games to play. And I don't have any really good anime to watch either. I've been watching Samurai Champloo, which was produced by the same people who made the really excellent Cowboy Bebop. It's fairly enjoyable, but not up to the same standard as Cowboy Bebop.
