Teleportation appears to be the favourite superpower [in my completely unscientific 'oh, lots of you seem to have said that' way of deciphering all your comments LOL!] , saving us all time and money and letting us travel to exotic places at the drop of a hat! Works for me *g*

Thank you to everyone for taking part and for leaving your comments, I've really enjoyed reading them. And many thanks for linking and tweeting! Right back off into the Writing Cave now to find a way for Genny to escape from the clutches of [redacted for spoiler alert] in The Bitter Seed of Magic!

Fire - Kristin Cashore : Giveaway

Okay, so I'm not here okay. You haven't seen me, 'cos I'm in The Writing Cave - Writing :-) But I've a treat for you while I'm away . . .

But first my thanks to everyone who has bought The Cold Kiss of Death, I'm really thrilled that you've let me know how much you've enjoyed reading it! Yay! *Big happy smiles*.

In another fab news, The Sweet Scent of Blood - Süßer als Blut - released in German [by my lovely German publishers Goldmann] two days ago [earlier than I thought!] It's so amazing to think my book's been translated into another language. *more big happy smiles* I'm just sad that I know no German *sigh* but here's a big HELLO and welcome to any new German speakers who might be reading.

Now on to the giveaway! Thanks to my lovely UK publishers Gollancz I have two ARCs of Fire : Kristin Cashore due for release on 17th Sept in the UK and 5th Oct in the US to giveaway to two lucky winners.


A must-read title for all fans of Patrick Rothfuss and Trudi Canavan, FIRE is an exceptional fantasy novel. From the deft characterisation to the gripping story, the fast-paced action to the evocative prose, this is one of the strongest fantasy novels of the year. Set in a world of stunningly beautiful, exceptionally dangerous monsters, Fire is one of the most dangerous monsters of all - a human one. Marked out by her vivid red hair, she's more than attractive. Fire is mesmerising. But with this extraordinary beauty comes influence and power. People who are susceptible to her appeal will do anything for her attention, and for her affection. They will turn away from their families, their work, and their duties for her. They will forget their responsibilities to please her . . . and worse, crush nations, neglect kingdoms and abuse their power. Aware of her power, and afraid of it, Fire lives in a corner of the world away from people, and away from temptation. Until the day comes when she is needed - a day when, for her king, she has to stand against not only his enemies, but also against herself . . .

Both Fire, and Kristin's first book, Graceling are about characters with POWERS. So t
o win a copy of Fire by Kristin Cashore, please leave a comment telling me what super power you would want to have. My super power choice, unsurprisingly, would be to streeeetch time so I could have at least twice as much of it, or more to do my loooong to-do list *g*.

Two winners to be drawn by Contest open to all, and ends end of day [anywhere] Thursday 2oth August 2009.

For some reason blogger decided to play around with the last few comments and want them to be moderated . . . I have no idea why, so sorry about that. Hopefully it should be okay now.
