Giveaway: Dragon Queen (14/4/2014)

Nothing Can Hurt Me

Nothing Can Stop Me

Dragon Queen came out in paperback last weeks and I have a few copies, a tiny precious few. For anyone who hasn’t already listened to be go on about it, Dragon Queen is my attempt to keep all the good stuff from the first series but with vastly more world building and character depth (hopefully sort of like The Black Mausoleum).  So it’s not going to be quite the relentlessly fast roller-coaster of The Adamantine Palace but on the other hand you do get an entire last act that should read like Call of Duty: Dragon Warfare if I’ve done it right. There are some tasters here and here and here. There are a few reviews about the place on Goodreads and Amazon and so forth of you care about such things. I wouldn’t say no to a few more. HINT HINT.

You wanted to know more about the Taiytakei: here they are. And possibly they just made a very big mistake. Efforts continue to write the last volume in this sequence.

Dragon Queen lo-res cover

I have two copies to give away. One here and one on Twitter. Usual deal – comment on this post before April 21st  and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy.

This week, like we did last summer, we’re playing Dragon Supermarket. So you need your comment to come up with something to do with fire and dragons and the comments have to be in alphabetical order. So for example, A is for Absolutely Run Like Fuck When You See One, B is for Burn, C is for Change Your Underwear If You Survive, etc…

Anyway, to enter the competition, you have to play the game. You can enter as may times as you like and I’ll count the first two entries – the rest are just for fun and showing off.  Extra points for humour and originality and just for once I’ll throw in an Angry Dragons mug if you make me laugh, smirk or otherwise amuse me.

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. I am currently a little behind.

    Blasting off into the air

    Careening fireballs scorched through the air,

    Daft dragons deftly dodge dancing deadly dervishes of fiery doom.

    Exquisite exterminators….!

  6. Tom Ison says:

    Furious fire breathing creatures,
    Their ferocity is matched by their size,
    They see you as food, not a person, just a prize.

  7. Barb Petersen says:

    G is for great gouts of flame licking at your heels as you flee a gargantuan dragon.

  8. August Evrard says:

    Hirsute they are not, for their hide is of scales, tougher than any metal beheld, you wish you were them, for upon the air they may dance, all while laying waste to your civilization like ants

  9. paul walsh says:

    I is for ignite which is what a dragon must have done to start a fire under Liverpools collective arses to get them going this year.

  10. Kristján Hjartarson says:

    J is for jewels in the dragons hoard. But take care not confuse that pair of dragon eyes with glittering amethysts.

  11. Ren Kuroya says:

    K is kill. the thing you try to do to the dragon. it usually winds up a flaming inferno of death and failure.
