Promotions first, to tantalise your taste buds and delight your bank balance: … Continue reading Godblind promotions, and my book baby’s first award nomination

Wait! Don't get over-excited - Godblind has not (yet - I can hope) been optioned for film. *sad face* However, those lovely people over at mybookthemovie.blogspot.co.uk have published a piece I wrote about who I'd cast in a film/TV adaptation and why.

And I am, therefore, genuinely Christmas-morning levels of excited to confirm that Godblind will have a map!
