DGLA winner Helen Lowe

There’s an interview with me over on Helen Lowe’s blog. I had enormous fun chatting with her, on subjects as varied as story structure, having a soft spot for old-fashioned heroes, and my downright unhealthy love for edged weapons.

There’s also some (spoiler-free) hints about what you can expect in Book 3 of the Wild Hunt, The Raven’s Shadow. Click here to read.

For those of you who don’t know, Helen is the author of the Wall of Night series, the first book of which, Heir of Night, pipped yours truly’s Songs of the Earth to the 2012 David Gemmell Legend Award ‘Morningstar’ for best debut.

Look! Free stuff!

Helen has also generously hosted a giveaway alongside the interview. Just leave a comment on her post to go into the draw to win signed, personalised copies of Songs of the Earth and Trinity RIsing (UK trade paperback). Open worldwide; details on Helen’s post.

Free books. What’s not to love?
