Since this is my first blog post, I spent a while trying to think of something witty and profound to say, before remembering I’m incapable of anything of the sort. So instead I thought I’d tell you about some things that are going to be happening on the book front soon, and why you should (ahem) take the opportunity to check back here as often as possible.

First off, the UK cover of When the Heavens Fall has been revealed at SciFiNow, and Titan has really hit the ball out of the park on this one. You can see it in all its glory here.

Secondly, there’s going to be a video trailer for the book available shortly. I promise you it’s worth a look when it comes out.

Thirdly, I’ve got a short story being published at Tor.com, though the date has yet to be confirmed. It should also be available as an audio file. Here’s the introduction:

With When the Heavens Fall set for release in May, author Marc Turner sets the stage for his epic fantasy debut in ‘There’s a Devil Watching Over You,’ a short story set in the turbulent world of the novel.

Safiya and her fellow bandits thought they had found an easy mark, but they quickly learned that they picked the worst possible victim. Now Luker Essendar, one of the warrior Guardians of Erin Elal, is after them, and his relentless pursuit is driving the bandits toward an abandoned fort – one that appears strewn with evidence of a terrible battle. But nothing is exactly as it seems…”

Finally, I thought I’d end on a piece of good news. When the Heavens Fall received a starred review from Kirkus. Amongst other nice things, they said, “The characters, whose personalities drive the narrative as much as the clash of magics, battle through page after relentless page of grim, desperate, surprising, and often enthralling action. Equally satisfying, the ending wraps things up without annoying and taunting cliffhangers. A splendid launch. Turner's unquestionably a newcomer to watch.” You can read the whole review here.
