Giveaway: The Fateguard Trilogy (07/12/2014)

Damn,  but this is a good-looking book. It’s big too. I mean, Game of Thrones big. Proper fantasy big. None of that namby-pamby barely makes it to 100,o00 words thinks-it’s-some-kind-of-novel-from-any-other-genre fantasy. No no. 940 pages. 330,000 words. A man with an axe on the cover. What more could you want.

Ok, look, yes it’s an omnibus, but it’s Nathan Hawke’s  *first* omnibus and Nathan Hawke is pretty damn proud of it (”it’s like I levelled up”), so tolerate the revelling in it and accept that three novels and seven shorts is pretty decent for a giveway.

And if you don’t win, Gallow: The Fateguard Trilogy is officially published on the 12th, and is probably in most decent bookshops already.

Usual deal – comment on this post before December 14th and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy. It’s Christmas, so no games, but you have to say something nice about someone who isn’t me as a comment to this post to enter. That’s it. So far no one has complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, but  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. Am currentlyup to date, in that all recent winners have been posted.

    I want to thank my wife for being so supportive this year, and being a fantastic mum to our two year old son

    (BTW, I was sold on this when I saw the postcard I got in your signed book – if I don’t win this, it’s already on my amazon Xmas list!)

  2. Daniel Vassily says:

    Always lve a big book with an angry man with with an axe on the cover!

  3. Laura says:

    This is on my xmas list already and has been for some time. Darn release dates being so far away.

    Everyone who has tolerated my miserable post smoking self for the last month, I salute you. I *am* me and even I am hating being around myself right now. So, you people are awesome and far more patient and tolerant than I ever am.

    Also my vet. For not hating my cat when he tried to maim her last week mid check up. :/

  4. Tyson Mauermann says:

    Haven’t read the Hawke books yet but this is a great chance to do so. Thanks for the opportunity.

  5. nicki says:

    Looks interesting! I’ll say something nice about my husband Erik, he is much more patient with me than I deserve. Bet he’d enjoy raging these too.

  6. Tony says:

    Shout out to my lovely wife and daughter, who’ll both want to read this set.

  7. David Brady says:

    It’s a gorgeous looking book. I just want to thank my neighbours who have been immense

  8. David Brady says:

    It’s a gorgeous looking book Sir. I just want to thank my neighbours who have been an immense support all of 2014 since a recent bereavement in my family. They will be spoiled rotten this Xmas. Best neighbours ever.

  9. Paul says:

    A Happy Christmas to all

  10. Daniel Blackburn says:

    Thanks to that strange girl at the Royal Mail collection office who was trying to guess what was in my parcel and was babbling something incoherent about books. You made my evening.

  11. Rory Hunter says:

    Thanks to my wife for being brilliant with our newborn, who is a little heffalump and very lovely.

  12. Veronica says:

    Oooh, 940 pages. With axes. Sounds like something I’ll need to buy. :-)

    Christmas greetings from Scandinavia (where the Trope says axes, yes, but as you all know, no helmets with horns).

    If I’m to say anything nice it’ll have to be about my patients. Being a young doctor I’d like to thank them all for putting up with me sometimes having to double-check things, and for how the ups and downs they’ve shared with me these past two years have taught me more about people than a previous lifetime has done. I learn something every day. Does that sound selfish? It’s not meant to be. I’ll be a better doctor for it.

  13. Carole-Ann says:

    Totally love ‘big’ books – they have substance AND weight :)

    And thank you for giving me this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to all my lovely customers (I own/run a 2nd-hand bookshop) who love books just as much as I do! :)

  14. WM Gardner says:

    I accept your challenge. I’m in. It looks right up my alley. Not just being it’s big, i’m not so vapid as to hope to rope myself into the sort of commitment that a good book can be, on looks alone. No, no i leave that sort of fiery instantaneous passion for the enigmatic and inspiring brain of my girlfriend. (nobody tell her i said that… not that you could anyway)

  15. Guillermo says:

    I just found out about this book and it sounds right up my alley.
    And if I’m to say something nice about someone, it’ll be about my wife, whom I love and who understands that I need some time on my own to read and to build spaceships (with Lego).

  16. calum says:

    ill say something nice about alder hay hospital looking after my little brother but got good news today knowing hes going to oklahoma for proton treatment which has made me happy toay, but this book looks like it will fill my craving

  17. Mango Heroics says:

    I can’t say enough nice about (or to) the students in the 2 seminars I just finished teaching this semester. They (you) were awesome!
    I’d love to have this collection & feel I have a good chance to win it, as Gallow seems to like me!
    And I will say something nice about you too Nathan. Not ftw, but because these giveaways are a high point in/of my year.

  18. Sean Smith says:

    I would like to say something nice about my wife. This year has been hard as I have been made redundant twice and through all this she has remained positive and kept me going. Our two-year-old has the best mum in the world.

  19. Polona says:

    Oooh, a proper, big fantasy book! I’m sold. This is getting a new home at my place one way or another, hehe. Been itching to read good fantasy gbook again, the last one I read was kind of meh.
    My shoutout and some kind of award goes to my mom, who has been through so much this year and still managed to stay positive and strong!

  20. Stephen says:

    The Gods of Random have spoken. Tony wins it this week.
