I’m going to be doing a novel-writing workshop at VCon, Vancouver’s annual sf con, the weekend of October 5 – 7.  Charles Stross may be doing it as well (he’s GoH at the con).

Participation will be limited.  Prospective participants need to send the first 3,000 words of their novels to the organizer, Canadian megafan, R. Graeme Cameron at polar(dot)borealis(dot)magazine(at)gmail(dot)com as soon as possible.  Deadline for receiving submissions will be September 7.

Don’t send anything to me.

My new business cards

Since I’m going to be attending cons again (WorldCon’s still a maybe), I asked the talented artist, and Tor author in his own write, Bradley W. Schenck, to do me up some business cards in his retro-SF style.

I think they’re pretty cool, so now I’m going to get him to do me some bookmarks, too.

His web site is www.webomator.com

PW review of One More Kill

Publishers Weekly has given a positive review to my suspense novel, One More Kill, now shipping from UK publisher PS Publishing in a high-quality hardcover.  A paperback edition and an ebook are waiting for a deal with a North American publisher, with whom I hope to get something finalized soon.

PW review highlights:  “Intriguing plot twists drive this page-turner from Hughes . . . does a masterly job of making a cold-blooded killer sympathetic.”

George R.R. Martin also kindly gave me a blurb:  “Fans of Lawrence Block’s Keller stories are going to love One More Kill.  I certainly did.  Matt Hughes kept me up all night, turning pages.

One little hitch:  PW thinks I’m the same Matt Hughes who used to be a mixed martial arts champion.  I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, but I’ve sent them a correction.
