WARNING: There now follows a very self indulgent post where I shamelessly link to posts that are being lovely about my book.
It’s been a tough sort of week really, with various things going wrong – I won’t bore you with it here, but I was stress-drinking large glasses of red by Wednesday – however, the very first reviews for The Copper Promise have started to come in, which is equal parts exciting and terrifying. So you can consider this post an obvious attempt to cheer myself up:
Andrew Reid provides the most modern of reviews, stuffed full of gifs: Tom Hiddleston Dancing out of Ten
Pete Newman declares The Copper Promise to be “a good thing”: Tons of bad guys, an abundance of scars and a mild hint of sauce.
The legendary Graeme Flory writes a review that I suspect knows more about the book than I do: can we have the sequel now please?
And just to top it off, there has been some chatter on twitter from a couple of my favourite writers:
Turns out THE COPPER PROMISE by @sennydreadful is pretty darned spectacular. My pick for *the* fantasy novel of 2014.

Well, I don’t know about you, but that cheered me up. Remember, The Copper Promise is already available for pre-order…
