Book Giveaway: The Splintered Gods (22/6/2014)

By the end of this week I should have a submission-ready draft of The Silver Kings. After that I get to talk with my editor about what comes next. Irritation of the week gets to be shared between the Achilles tendon that refuses to stop hurting and the review for the Black Mausoleum that describes it as having “rape-as-plot-device” when no such thing occurs, plot device or not, at any point. Balancing that is a new review of Dragon Queen at Fixed on Fantasy, “a masterpiece of fantasy and easily Deas’ best work to date.”

Well I thought so…

There’s some World Cup silliness over here (but I’m grumpy about that now), and I’ve also finished reading Barricade and might possibly write up a review of it if I have the time.

This week’s giveaway is The Splintered Gods (finally). I have nothing much to say about it except that it;s the sequel to Dragon Queen, is a bit shorter, and started off trying to be a murder mystery but largely failed.

Usual deal – comment on this post before the end of June 28th and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim. This week I can’t think of any clever things to ask for in the comments, so just wave and say hi and you’ll get entered as long as you’re not spam offering NFL jerseys.

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. I am currently up to date with posting things.

    PROXIMA arrived today. I think this means I’m now eligible to be drawn (not in the torture sense) randomly again. But in case I don’t get randomized into the sample of one, please tell us when The Splintered Gods will be coming to the US.
