What Richard did…

As part of our series on what the RORees are up to, we caught up with Richard. He says…

Right now I’m working on the final (I trust) revision for my next novel, following on from suggestions by my Australian and German publishers. It’s a YA/crossover streampunk fantasy, with a female protagonist, set in an earlier period of the WORLDSHAKER and LIBERATOR world.

And I can now announce the title – at last, this it is, no further changes, and I for one am delighted with it! My next steampunk novel is called SONG OF THE SLUMS, and it will be out in May 2013.

Here is a preview of the cover. 



My short story ‘At the Top of the Stairs’ has just come out in YEARS BEST AUSTRALIAN FANTASY AND HORROR, and ‘A Mother’s Love’ comes out shortly in BLOODSTONES (Both from Ticonderoga).
