Giveaway – Wintersmith (28/5/2013)

I’m still quite taken with The Blood Juggler.

The proof for Dragon Queen is back with Gollancz. That was about 36 hours work 241443 words for any who care. So about twice as long as The Adamantine Palace and not much more than half the length of A Storm of Swords. Every book I write feels like it’s the best book I ever did and absolutely marvelous when I send it back after editing. Come the proofs, when to more books have gone in since, the shine has gone. Every time it’s the same – the book I’m just about finished writing is always the best one yet. I suppose it has to be that way but it’s happened enough times that the pattern’s pretty obvious. So, yeah… Dragon Queen… Best Stephen Deas book evaaar… maybe… Oh just go form your own opinion and never mind me.

Just for fun I’ve sent in an SF novel too – a bit of space opera, a good dash of cyberpunk nostalgia, plenty of sex and an severe attack of Tourette’s. The next couple of weeks are back to the historical novel and something else that I can’t talk about yet but REALLY REALLY WANT TO. Also we need to talk about Rude Supermarket.

This week’s free book needs little introduction, I suspect…

Usual deal – comment on this post before June 1st  and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy. No challenge this week but now that I’ve been introduced to Rude Supermarket, there may be a more interesting one coming up…

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.
