Happy Book Birthday Giveaway : Lex Trent versus The Gods

I've been a bad blogger recently [recently? - okay for a while now, but I have my reasons*] so to make up for it I'm doing a random giveaway to celebrate the release of . . .

A wonderful, action-packed, magical adventure about a lovable, but sneaky scoundrel, written by my good buddy and brilliant author Alex Bell. Now if you've read either of Alex's previous two books* this one's a little different [but still carries Alex's inimitable style]. You can read an extract here

Law student Lex Trent’s world is inhabited by fearsome magicians, ageing crones and a menagerie of Gods and Goddesses. And while Lex is seemingly dedicated to his legal studies he’s always enjoyed a challenge – which is why he leads a double life as the notorious cat burglar ‘The Shadowman’ who has been (luckily) evading capture for years.

But Lex’s luck is about to run out because the Goddess of Fortune has selected him to be her player in the highly dangerous Games. Losing is not an option for Lex (particularly as it so often involves dying) but can he really win each of the perilous rounds? Given that the reward for doing so is money, fame and glory – all things that Lex is quite keen on – he’s going to do whatever it takes to make sure he will... and he’s certainly got good experience of cheating.

Alex's previous two books - The Ninth Circle, and Jasmyn

!!!Happy Book Birthday, Alex!!!

To be entered into the giveaway, please leave a comment wishing Alex and Lex a Happy Book Birthday. Giveaway closes end of day [UK time] 10th February. Open to all.


I've been invited to submit a short story** to an anthology! Yay! *major happy dancing here* But happy dancing aside, it's been a few years since I've written a short, so thinking up a plot to fit in with the word count has given me some sleepless nights . . . but I think I've 'cracked' it now :-). The story will be a job that Genny and Finn take on, and it will involve a pack of mischievous pixies, probably some dangerous vampires [since most of what Genny does involves vampires :-)], and [...deleted]. I'm really looking forward to writing it.

* Reasons: finish writing The Bitter Seed of Magic, the holidays, family stuff, day job stuff, and reading - more on the reading later hopefully

**more details once I've written the story, and had it accepted. Sorry for all the teasing :-)
