My current on-the-desk project is Volume Three of the #AngelCatbird series, published by Dark Horse. The first volume will launch in early September — to see advance news and interviews, search the title! I am working with the co-creator, illustrator Johnnie Christmas, Dark Horse editor Daniel Chabon, comics entrepreneur and editor Hope Nicholson (Secret Loves of Geek Girls), and colorist Tamra Bonvillain.
I just toured the Toronto studio where they are building the sets and making the costumes and props for the Sarah Polley written-and-produced mini-series of Alias Grace, which begins shooting Aug. 15. What activity! I got measured for a 19th C. dress, for a cameo as a disapproving old lady in a church. Practicing my frown…. It’s Netflix and C. B.C. Stellar cast, amazing creative team, very exciting!
Another experiment: the new book-sharing app called Reco (@helloreco on Twitter), which you can get free. It allows you to share your book recommendations with friends and followers, with notes about the books if you feel like it. I’ve posted a few, and a couple of lists. Easy enough for me to use = idiot-proof.

The paperback of The Heart Goes Last will be published this fall, with some interesting covers in the UK and North America. The covers will be posted here in the upcoming week.
My new novel, Hag-Seed – part of the Hogarth Shakespeare project – will appear in October. It’s a re-visiting of Shakespeare’s play The Tempest, and I had a fine time writing it!
Cover views are here on the home page and also in the Shop.
For book tour events in the UK, the US, and Canada, go to the Events section where we will be adding the locations and information as they are available.
I went to ComicCon this July for Angel Catbird, and I’ll be going to FanExpo in Toronto as well. The superhero is a combo of cat, bird, and human, so he can see all sides of the cat-bird problem. Nature Canada supplies the factual part of this project: @safecatsafebird. (Vol. 2 is To Castle Catula: Count Catula is part vampire, part bat, part cat) and Vol. 3 will be The Catbird Roars.) Having fun already!
