For anybody who wants an insight into what went into writing Furnace then head over to the excellent Book Smugglers blog. It’s run by Ana, one of the lovely people I met at the Guillermo Del Torro signing, and is an utterly fantastic place to visit for book reviews and giveaways. Ana recently reviewed Furnace (extremely positively, thanks!) and asked me if I wanted to do a guest post. I started to write something for her, and that something became a very personal insight into a difficult period in my past which ultimately led to the creation of Alex Sawyer, the hero (antihero?) of the Furnace books. There’s also a chance to win Furnace goodies!
Anyway, check it out for yourself!
And thanks, Ana, for the chance to bare my soul!
