Cupid War Release Date!

Thanks to the computer system at Chapters/Indigo/Coles, I now know the release date for my next novel, The Cupid War. It is already available for pre-order, and the release date is set for August 8, 2011.

It's a little later than I'd expected - I'd been told the book would come out in the Spring. Nevertheless this is good news; the date is set, and I now have even more time to promote it.

Update your calendars, everyone!

Epoch Honoured!

This morning, I had an email from my agent:

We greeted this morning with this great news. Seems congratulations are in order as you are a celebrity.

Great news: Timothy Carters EPOCH/DĂ„MONENHUNGER got the second place in the category BEST INTERNATIONAL NOVEL of the rather prestigious German Fantasy Award. CONGRATULATIONS to the author … and all of us! ;-) tim

Not shabby my friend. Have a great day!!!

Second best international novel... yeah, that's pretty fantastic!

Cupid War Editing Done

About a month ago I finally finished my new draft of The Cupid War. I've sent it in, and am very relieved to have that part of the process over and done with.

Not that it was a bad experience or anything. Each suggested change was for the benefit of the story, and the newer version is a much better read. Some of the edits were challenging, and a lot of them revealed my weaknesses as a writer. A good edit is something every writer should be so lucky to go through.

Nevertheless, I'm glad to have it done. I'm hopeful that I'll have cover art to post before too long.
