Book Giveaway – The Crimson Shield (11/6/2013)

News? What news? I’m still mucking about with some historical fiction and for a while I am no longer a fantasy author – no more of that until after the summer holidays. Turns out that neither I nor Lord Grimdark made it into Glamour magazine’s “If you like Game of Thrones. . . ” article possibly on account of being too much like Game of Thrones and not enough like . . . Well, like Hostage to Pleasure, I suppose. Oh, and the Black Mausoleum and subsequent dragon books apparently won’t be coming out in the US via Roc but via Trafalgar (whoever they are) but when I have a clue what that means I guess I’ll elaborate.

So, poor old Hostage to Pleasure possibly wins the prize for least loved giveaway I’ve ever done. I hereby try to redeem myself. I have for you an ARC (not often I get hold of those any more) for the first of Nathan Hawke’s Gallow trilogy coming out this summer. I hope this is more to your liking out there because I gather it’s really f**king rare. You’ll have to put up with the possibility of it having a slightly pre-read look but I’ll be as careful with it as I can before I give it up (he says, looking at the chocolate fudge smear on the screen here…)

So yes: An ARC: The Crimson Shield by Nathan Hawke, not out until 7th July. If it’s popular I’ll see if I can get a couple from the first print run to give away. If it’s *not* popular then I’m going to sulk and give away nothing but copies of Hostage to Pleasure until July :-p

Usual deal – comment on this post before June 16th  and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy. I’ll even let you off playing the Supermarket game for another week.

Although, though no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. Well, so far.
