Matthew Hughes: the Archonate

Matthew Hughes

The name I answer to is Matt Hughes. I write fantasy and suspense fiction. To keep the two genres separate, I now use my full name, Matthew Hughes, for fantasy, and the shorter form for the crime stuff. I also write media tie-ins as Hugh Matthews.

Interview in F&SF

I’ve done an interview on The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction‘s blog about my Baldemar story in the March/April issue, “The Plot Against Fantucco’s Armor.”

Ask me anything

I’ve started up the ask-me-anything session on the Rock the Cauldron Facebook group page. And I’ve posted links for a free ebook of Fools Errant, the first Archonate novel.

Here’s where to go:

Ask me anything

A reminder:  tomorrow, Friday, March 1, I’ll be doing an ask-me-anything on the Facebook page, Rock the Cauldron.  I’ll probably start in the morning, Pacific time, and keep going until I sense I’ve exhausted the interest of whoever dials in.

Here’s where the action will be:

I’ll also be giving away an ebook:  my first Archonate novel, Fools Errant, in mobi and epub formats.  I’ll post a link where anyone who wants a free read can download the file.

And I’ll kick things off with a little dissertation on why my main characters tend to be oddballs.

Ask me anything

Here’s a heads up.  On Friday, March 1, I’ll be the featured author at Rock the Cauldron, a Facebook site run by my SF Canada colleague, Shereen Vedam.  I’ll post a few thoughts about my work and answer any questions that others post.

I’m also seeing if I can arrange to give away an ebook as a free download from my webstore.

More to come, later in the week.

Free reads

Still snowed in, with nothing much to do except read a forthcoming novel and think about a blurb.

So I thought I’d remind people that every month, I put up a free read of a backlist story.  Since last summer, I’ve been using Curious Fictions, in an experiment to see whether the site gets me more reads than my former practice of putting them up for a month on my website.

And so far it has worked out that way.

I’ve got two streams going on CF, my SF and fantasy stories, under my full name, Matthew Hughes.  And my crime stories, as written by Matt Hughes.
