Viewing entries tagged with 'The Legion of Shadow'
Just a mini update to confirm that the bookmark competition is officially closed. A big thank you to all those who took part – I was surprised and overwhelmed by the response. Speedy heroes who submitted their entries before the closing date (9 April) won their chosen bookmarks. These should be with you by now or, at least, on their way. Entries made after the 9 April sadly missed out, but there will be more opportunities to get hold of bookmarks in the future. Sorry for some of the confusion with the closing date - my fault for not making it clearer! You live and learn.

Or so the forecasters would have us believe, with dire warnings of heavy snow, sub-zero temperatures and hazardous conditions. It feels like something from a George R.R. Martin novel.

Happy New Year! Yes, I imagine you're sick of hearing that by now, but for me - this really does feel like a happy New Year. Yes, it's not everyday that you see your name/book blogged on a publisher's website, along with a sneak peek of your new cover art. Very surreal, I can tell you. But then, I have the feeling that this will be a surreal year.
