Recently I got to see Mark Zug’s illustrations for THM book 3: StarChaser, and they are just wonderful. Of course. Every time I see new pictures from Mark I feel so lucky that he is so much part of the Septimus world.
I’ve been working on a few new things over the last few months, but Septimus is always on my mind – and I think it always will be! Once again, I’m really sorry about the long wait you’ve had for replies to AA7 – life just gets so crazy busy and I lose track of things.
I’ve now got a totally new website: angiesage.com and if you have a question that needs answering fast, just go to the contact page on there and I will get straight back to you.
But stay here too! I am trying to catch up with answers here much more quickly now – I do really love the forum of the sepheap blog, it’s a special place.
I’m going to be doing my first ever writers’ workshop for grown-ups soon. It’s in Cornwall way down past Penzance near the romantic and rugged Lamorna cove. The course lasts the week, from Monday 7th March through to Saturday 12th, but I’ll be there on the Wednesday night for talking writing stuff over supper and then we’ll be doing a workshop on the Thursday morning. It would be brilliant if anyone here can make it, it’s a fab place.
Here are the details: http://thewritingretreat.co.uk/2016/02/07/angie-sage-talks-writing/
First, very big apologies from me for not having been around for ages. I’ve been taking time out to think. After finishing StarChaser – the last book of the TodHunter Moon trilogy – I really needed some time to get my ideas back again. And at last I think they are venturing out once more.
I’ll get back to all the fab questions in Ask Angie very soon, but first … here is a brilliant competition to have your name in StarChaser. I’ve already written the scene, all it needs is YOUR name!

Here’s a great post about SYREN and SANDRIDER from Mary Claire, who writes the brilliant RealRadReads blog and is a big fan of Sep Heap. If you’re into good YA fiction and wondering what to read next, RealRadReads is the place to go.
There’s a petition for the Sep Heap movie – started by a big Septimus fan – up and running at change.org.
Here is the link: https://www.change.org/p/septimus-heap-movie-let-s-make-it-happen
Overnight it gathered over 300 signatures, which is wonderful. I love how how many people love the Sep Heap world!
I’m back. At last. And big BIG apologies for disappearing for so long. It was a bit of a writing tunnel for some time, but now I have finished StarChaser (THM book 3) and I’m back in the world again. Hooray!
Okay, Ask Angie section, here I come.
I’m going to be in Cardiff on Saturday 28th March. I’m really looking forward to it. Maybe see you there?

A writing workshop.

All about PathFinder. And in a castle – what could be better?
We now have the Magykal Number seven Ask Angie. Which is fantastic.
I thought it could be a fresh start for anyone whose question or comment I’ve not replied to – and I know there are a few of those.
So if you’ve not heard from me please re-post to Ask Angie 7 and let the Magyk begin!
And thanks to everyone for being so patient,
I’m back – at last!
I’m sorry I’ve been away all winter, I have been hibernating in a writing cocoon, but it has worked. I’m now well on the way with THM book three. The Big Freeze is thawing now and I can face the world again… and give a big apology to all SepHeap blog fans for not answering any questions for ages.
I shall get down to reading all your great comments and questions over the next few days. Happy Spring (almost). And if you are way down in the Southern hemisphere, happy Autumn (almost).
Laura A, Jennifer E, Geraldine C, Lisa T, and Angela S!
