Sam Hawkes’ debut fantasy, CITY OF LIES, is published today by Tor US. It’s taken three years, a lot of sweat, blood and poison, lots of excitement and the day is finally here. So do say Happy Book Birthday to the excited author! :-)
So it's been a month or so since I left Tor UK and all my wonderful authors there. And I've been slowly going through the submissions that have been sent in to me. I have to say I've been hugely impressed by the quality! But, there was one that immediately captured my attention. Just with the first line. 'I was seven years old the first time my uncle poisoned me.'
