the meldling hardcover leather

Failed Bindings

Well, it happened. I had such great ideas, and it was all for naught.

I promised I’d do a giveaway of this nice leather-bound gray copy of The Meldling. An excellent idea, I thought! And then I had a stroke of the most amazing luck – I acquired a piece of very beautiful, thin red leather.

December Giveaway – and an Interview!

Well! Nanowrimo is done, and now Christmas is fast approaching. And I have been busy as hell!

The Goodreads giveaway is now over, and three lucky winners in the UK and the States now each have a copy of The Meldling on its way to them. I did run my usual mailing list giveaway, and I’ve contacted the person who won, but I still haven’t heard back from them. This gives me a sad, but all I can do is wait.

Goodreads shenanigans

I have a Goodreads profile that I jump into occasionally to see what readers are up to. I honestly thought that I’d never be able to do a giveaway for my handbound books there, because how exactly do you do that for books with no ISBN or ASIN number? (ISBN = obvious, ASIN = Amazon’s identifier)

Well, after a few emails to the Goodreads support staff, I have a giveaway for three of my books!

October Giveaway Winner!

You didn’t think I’d forget about this just because I’m doing NanoWrimo, did you?

The Nameless Knight is now in progress, and I’m sure that I’ll be deviating wildly from my outline in no time. Until the 30th, when I return from my bunker with the first draft, take a look at this nice book!

September Giveaway Winner Annoucement

It’s the worst thing in the world when a binding fails. It happens every once in a while, when the materials I pick for covers or endpapers or glue turn out to be a bad choice. This belated announcement comes to you courtesy of some bad materials that just would not glue down properly, which resulted in me having to rebind a cover, scrap two entire text blocks of expensive parchment paper, and throw out umpteen test print pages of regular paper.
