The countdown has ticked out its final seconds and the day it has been waiting for has finally arrived!
I have received balloons, flowers, emails and tweets today, and read lots of fantastic reviews from readers and book bloggers who have enjoyed the book!
Silas Dane certainly seems to be collecting a legion of fans!
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has posted reviews of Wintercraft on their blogs, on Twitter and elsewhere on the internet. I appreciate every single one. And to everyone who has contacted me personally via email... you are all wonderful. *hugs*
The number thirteen has always been lucky for me, so today really is the perfect day for Wintercraft to be released. And to mark the occasion I'm going to have a book giveaway!
If you'd like a chance to own a signed copy of Wintercraft, simply leave your name in a comment beneath this post and I will devise a cunning and highly scientific way to select a name at random on Friday May 21st. The winner whose name is drawn will win a signed book and I may be able to rustle up a few extras to go with it.
(I will announce the winner on May 21st and ask for contact details privately then, so please don't post any personal details in your comments.)
I will send the book anywhere, so everyone can enter!
Today has been a brilliant day.
Wintercraft is finally out in the world - and as someone in Albion said long before me:
'This is only the beginning...'
