In the News

What? Two Peephole posts back to back? Can it be true?

Yes, believe it or not, there is so much to talk about that one post didn’t cut it.

Last week, on the day The Desert Spear released in the US, I did an interview for The New York Daily News, which was in the paper on Thursday, April 15. You can see the Daily News article online here.

Apparently the interview was available on the AP, because my agent found the article quite by accident in the Saturday, April 17 edition of the Daily Telegraph, and google pointed it out again in Canada’s Edmonton Journal. The story has since been picked up by various blogs in at least a dozen languages. Wild.

On my return, the lovely Brittany Oat came out to interview me for local Brooklyn station News 12, for a piece that ran on Friday, April 25. If you are a Time Warner or Cablevision customer, you should be able to view the piece online here. It’s pretty awesome.

  1. Well, I just finished The Desert Spear… great book! I was expecting a good read after The Warded Man, but the ending really threw me for a loop.

    I’d have to place this right up there with Brent Weeks’ Night Angel Trilogy, Patrick Rothfuss’ Name of the Wind, and Scott Lynch’s Lies of Locke Lamora.

    Great stuff – keep ’em coming!

    Very fine, indeed.

  3. Yeah also finished it last week, very well done!. Look forward to the next book…. not so much the inevitable wait, but what can you do. (besides write faster! 😉 )

    Keep up the good work and see if you cant pump out a few more Arlen messenger side stories.

  4. Completed Desert Spear last night – loved it. Two friends also reading at the moment so am trying not to give anything away. Can’t wait until the next one!

  5. On Tuesday my daughter gave me The Desert Spear for my (recent) birthday. The pressure was on from her, my wife and youngest son to read it fast … given we all loved The Painted Man and all wanted to experience the next ‘adventure in print’. I finished the read at 1.30 am.
    Nice work … I thoroughly enjoyed The Desert Spear … and especially seeing the characters go to new levels. My wife’s almost finished re-reading The Painted Man and is ‘next in line’ for The Desert Spear.

  6. The whole family reads fantasy? That might well be the sweetest thing I ever heard.

  7. Just finished Painted Spear. What a head spinner. Love the idea of writing if from the other parties view point (he say’s trying not to give anything away for other readers). Gave me a great understanding of what was previously thought to be a villain. Well done. Truly an amazing book. Jack from NZ.
