So the small format paperback of THE COPPER PROMISE is officially out now! Smaller, lighter, some might say sexier – all of the epic fantasy fun but in handy “can actually fit in your bag and doesn’t make a good blunt instrument” size. Here’s the blurb, since it occurs to me that I’m always forgetting to tell people what the book is about:
There are some tall stories about the caverns beneath the Citadel – about magic and mages and monsters and gods.
Wydrin of Crosshaven has heard them all, but she’s spent long enough trawling caverns and taverns with her companion Sir Sebastian to learn that there’s no money to be made in chasing rumours.
But then a crippled nobleman with a dead man’s name offers them a job: exploring the Citadel’s darkest depths. It sounds like just another quest with gold and adventure … if they’re lucky, they might even have a tale of their own to tell once it’s over.
These reckless adventurers will soon learn that sometimes there is truth in rumour. Sometimes a story can save your life.
In celebration, I am eating French Fancies (see pic) and giving away three copies of the new paperback (signed, with the inevitable dragons drawn inside, with a sampler of THE IRON GHOST).
To win a copy, post your answer to this almost entirely random question in the comments below:
Tell me who your favourite villain is (from books, TV, film – whatever you like!)
I’ll pick three and post the winners up on Monday the 1st of September, so keep an eye out. Time to eat more cake!
