Name That Tavern! And Win a Signed copy of The Copper Promise

posting cover

As I’ve now handed the second book in to my editor (and got to the end of it without hulking out or chewing my desk to bits) I thought I would celebrate with a giveaway. One of those competition things. I’ve seen other people do them.

Now, Wydrin and I share a few interests. Pointed weaponry, grumpy mages, that sort of thing – but mainly we share an enjoyment of drinking alcoholic beverages. In fact, of all my characters Wydrin is the one I’d most like to share a bottle of mead with, and she hangs out at the weirdest places: The Hands of Fate, The Scurvy Lemon, The Steaming Pot, The Boiled Dog… It’s fair to say Wydrin has an extensive knowledge of dodgy taverns.

And I do love a dodgy tavern name. Tell me a good tavern name in the comments, and you could win:

A signed copy of The Copper Promise that I will probably draw something stupid in as well.

A signed copy of Twisted Histories, a short story anthology edited by Scott Harrison. As well as a story from me, it also contains excellent scary stories from awesome writers such as Gary McMahon and Kaaron Warren.

A signed copy of An Alphabet for Strange Children, a weird little chapbook I made at art college (actually rather rare, and it contains creepy pictures of blank-eyed children. You have been warned).

And anything else I can stick in the parcel.

So name me a tavern in the comments by Thursday the 8th of May, and I could be sending you a load of nonsense in the post. Hooray!

(Be sure to leave either your twitter handle or some other way of identifying yourself, and a winner will be picked at random. GO GO GO!)
