Plus there's some other stuff going on that's kept me away. So, I also want to say if you're waiting on something from me, and I know a few folk are, I'm very, very sorry, and please, be patient with me. I'm trying to catch up as soon as I can.
Anyway, I'm popping in to say that the lovely Kristin over at My Bookish Ways interviewed me about My Favourite Things - why not head over there and find out how I once had to race a swarm of zombies . . . Eek!
There's a giveaway too! Winner's choice of one of my books (The post says The Cold Kiss of Death, but I'm happy to offer a choice of #1, #2 or #3 :-D)
*And to say sorry in a more substantive way, here's a small snippet from The Shifting Price of Prey! Enjoy! (totally unedited, so please ignore any typos etc. :-))
‘You’re free as a— Oh, wow!’ Katie’s eyes rounded with amazement as she pointed at the park. ‘Look, Genny!’
The unicorn was galloping flat out through the park towards us. And ‘wow!’ didn’t begin to cover it. Its copper-coloured coat reflected the last rays of the sunset, its mane streamed behind it in a ripple of verdigris and bronze, and its horn flickered amber and gold like the light inside a dragon’s tear. It radiated pure happiness as it ran and watching it lifted my spirit and made everything seem right with the world. Heart beating joyfully in my chest, I stared transfixed; it was so long since I’d seen it and I hadn’t realised how much I’d missed it. It skidded to a stop the other side of the iron railings, wrinkled its horsy lip and gave a fluting whistle, as if to say ‘over here’ then trotted towards the park gate. Katie jumped off her bike, and before I could grab her, was off running.
