I’m delighted to announce that Saxon’s Bane has been acquired by Solaris Books, an imprint of Rebellion, and will be released in September 2013. Solaris Books’ press release, excluding the blurb and bio that is already posted on this site, is:
Debut author finds Saxon treasure beneath 21st Century England
COMING IN SEPTEMBER 2013: Saxon’s Bane by Geoffrey Gudgion
Solaris is proud to announce a 2013 debut novel that brings the Dark Ages crashing into the 21st Century.
Geoffrey Gudgion’s historical supernatural thriller, Saxon’s Bane, will be published in September 2013.
A contemporary novel with a thrilling historical heart, Gudgion’s first novel is set in the 21st century but grounded in the Dark Ages, with a Saxon legend at its heart.
The past invades the present in this beautiful, lyrical and frightening tale, inspired by Gudgion’s love of ancient, ethereal places, and his eye for signs of the distant past in the English landscape of today.
“It’s a rare occasion when a submission comes in that I have to read right the way through in one go,” said Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Solaris. “Saxon’s Bane was such a book. Discovering a new writer is always a thrill, and Geoffrey’s novel is of such a high calibre that I can’t wait for people to read it.”
