Posts Tagged ‘A.J. Campbell’

Hey all,

You may remember a recent link I had to Xchyler Publishing accomplice and friend of mine A.J. Campbell, and her new book? Well, here’s a little more on her and her fabulous Sigil of the Wyrm, which launched THIS WEEK! As I’ve been a little distracted this week, I’m actually going to make A.J. a further invite on my page as I’ve got a few questions I want to ask her…

Here’s a little bit that I can share about the author anyway:

Born and raised in the wilds of Northumbria, A.J. Campbell was brought up on a diet of stories and local folklore, of which the Legend of the Lambton Worm was a perennial favourite. She eventually left her hometown to study English and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick and now lives in Hampshire, (which she persists in calling the “wrong” end of the country), with her fiancé and a succession of dead houseplants. At weekends she can often be found dressing up and pretending to be other people, immersing herself in the lives of fictional historical characters—or as it is better known, “LARPing”. She makes her own costumes and has a weakness for detective stories.

Here’s a few more links for now, but this shall continue…

A brief Xchyler Publishing Service Announcement.

A J Campbell, friend and now accomplice at Xchyler Publishing, has a release for Sigil of the Wyrm.

Out on August 25, this is one you want to be around for. Enjoy the trailer, spread the love.

And here is the trailer. Enjoy!

Since before the turn of the year, I meant to get a post up on here again other than a share or re-blog. Though I haven’t been around much, there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes pretty much everywhere. Bear with me, especially as I won’t be back with just one post in the upcoming days, but several. Try not to get too excited, will you all? Also, I can be found on Facebook quite a bit, I should probably remind you, and occasionally on Twitter nattering with richer authors than I. Usually all updates happen on the same day, but not always. You may be missing out on things…

Great news though—conventions and the like appear to be filling up fast! I’ll endeavour to keep this updated with my likely whereabouts, though if this month is anything to go by, things shall be, to some extent, subject to change as a result of real life and all that.

  • This very week, I shall be at Dysprosium, or EasterCon if you prefer, with the hope of bumping into Jim Butcher at some stage. I’m down for a panel on Unseen London, likely as no great surprise to anyone if you’re this far. Revision on my historical Underground knowledge, and a couple of other fun things I’ve discovered, is underway! WBN 2015 Logo
  • April 23 is World Book Night, of course. This year, that will see me at Fab Café in Manchester, whereby I should have some books with me and will certainly be partaking in some form of fun activity, as well as possibly having some remaining copies from the rest of the day of Street Cat Bob, if you want one.
  • Just arranged, I shall be appearing at Nerd East 2015 in Durham on 30 May for general socialising and to do a talk, subject currently to be confirmed. Might even have some books with me if we’re all lucky!
  • 7-9 August–I’ve been asked very nicely to go to Nine Worlds this year, which I shall as it doesn’t clash with an event I never miss for once!
  • 29 August – I’m heading to MancsterCon. Another panel awaits, expect a fantasy-related conversation there.

Some unconfirmed plans I’m holding out hope for reaching:

  • 11 July Edge-Lit in Derby, probably just as a nice day trip, but come and say hi, it’d be great!
  • [Edit] Almost forgot Octocon, but being regularly asked to go…
  • 23-25 October—FantasyCon
  • Various–Leeds Steampunk Market. I am quite frequently at these as some of you will know! Dates as I confirm them.

As I say, the first of several posts I have in the pipeline. And if you’d like to read some guest posts I have done of late, stop by D.A. Lascelles‘ page. I finally got an invite to the prestigious Vampire Month club, in which you can catch an interview with me and a bit of geekery on my part in relation to the fanged fiends. It was an awful lot of fun.  There are actually 9 or 10 posts up there in total, with some other authors I know, Elizabeth Morgan, A.J. Campbell and Jen Ponce. It was Vampire Month, after all.

Catch you soon I hope! You now have a number of opportunities, and there will be more. . .

*Which needs a cool name.
