Purveyor of fine fantasy adventures

Book giveaway


Folks, I need to clear some space on the shelves in my office. Gollancz just sent me another bunch of paperbacks, and there is no length to which I will not go in order to avoid dusting ’em, so the time has come to run another giveaway.

songs_tor_pbackFirst up, I have seven copies of the Tor paperback of SONGS OF THE EARTH to give away. Many of you will have aready read this, but I am reliably informed that there are people out there in internetland who haven’t yet heard of me (waves to the good folk of Reddit Fantasy) so here’s your chance to try a new-to-you author for free. You never know, you might even like it.

Second, I am giving away seven copies of the larger format UK paperback of TRINITY RISING. These are the not due in the shops until June 13th, so they’re new and shiny and unthumbed.


Free stuff, people. Who doesn’t love free stuff? Oh, and I’ll sign and personalise each book, too.

This giveaway is open worldwide – all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before midnight UK time on June 15th, and tell me which book you want, then I will put all the names in a hat and select the lucky recipients at random.

When you comment, please make sure you give a valid email address so I can contact you for your shipping addy and personalisation details when the giveaway ends.

UPDATE: If you’ve not read my work before, you should start with SONGS OF THE EARTH as it’s Book 1 in the series. TRINITY RISING is Book 2. If you don’t specify which book you’d prefer, I’ll put you in the hat for SONGS.

UPDATE the second: If your comment does not appear straight away, my apologies, but due to a rise in comment spam I have to manually approve new commenters. I’m training the cats to monitor the feed in my absence.

    I’m always down to try a new author! Haven’t heard much around r/fantasy so maybe I can get word out. I suppose I’ll have to start with SONGS, but I’m not adverse to picking it up if I have a better chance to win Trinity πŸ™‚

  2. Chris

    Put me down for trinity rising please.

  3. Carol

    I’m always looking for a new addiction, and would love it to begin with Songs of the Earth. Cheers!

  4. Kathy Washburn

    Just finished Songs of the Earth. Sad because I can’t run to the library & check out Trinity Rising–it’s Memorial Day on this side of the pond! Really enjoyed SOTE. I’m a 57 year old lady who got hooked on the fantasy genre when my older brother handed me a copy of The Hobbit when I was in jr high & said, “Here, read this. I think you might like it.”

    • Ellie

      Swap The Hobbit for Lord of the Rings and brother for mom and you could almost be me – right down to the “I think you might like it.” It’s official: Tolkien is a gateway drug.

  5. Brett Nelson

    Although my collection of tsundoku books is rather high, I have been steadily been eating away at them. I would love to add your “Songs of the Earth” to the top of that pile.
