Tindal Street Press to publish novel #2

I’ve been slack. I can’t seem to find the time to update this blog, what with teaching, family and writing… However I am very pleased to report that Tindal Street Press will be publishing my new novel in February 2012.

I’ve already begun editing (corrections and rewrites must be finished by the end of July apparently) and Luke – my editor – is as thorough and relaxed, as last time. However I’ve suggested three titles and Luke hasn’t jumped at any of them. This worries me. But as soon as I know what it’s called I’ll post it here.

The novel is set in the near future (but it’s not Sci-Fi). It’s about a young man called Lionel who is mixed race, adopted and obsessed with MMORPGs (online role playing games). The novel switches between a real world and a virtual world and explores notions of identity (cultural, digital, gender etc.). Once I get the blurb from the publisher I’ll post it here too.
