Here’s an invite to the launch of The Bleeding Land, my new novel set against the tumultuous and bloody backdrop of the civil war that tore England apart…
There’s no guest list as such – all are welcome! Indeed, please feel free to pass this invite to anyone who might like to join us. But if you can come, please note RSVP details to give us an idea of how many to expect.
Two splendid articles and a competition in The Telegraph.
Also, there is still time to enter the Viking reading challenge!
Writing Odin’s Wolves was a pure joy. It really floated my Viking boat. Being the third and final part of the saga I felt it should end Raven’s tale with the force of an oar in the face. Well, maybe that’s going a little too far, but I did want to make sure it had everything I myself would want in a Viking novel; action, camaraderie, the gut-churning bitter sweetness of good friends lost through brave deeds. Did I mention action? I also felt there were some tender moments (not too many, of course), just enough to show that even Sigurd’s motley crew have sensitive sides. Apart from Black Floki – he’d use his own granny for spear practice if she stood still long enough. You could say I felt I’d really hit my rowing rhythm with this book, that magical moment when the story and the telling of it weave together and the writing lives and breathes. I can’t help but feel it’d be a shame if my Wolfpack didn’t take to the sea road again…
Enjoy the festivities with some of the biggest word
singers slingers in the business. Merry Christmas!
