I am not good at keeping up to date with this blog, BUT two exciting things are going on at the moment. Firstly, DEFENDER was released in paperback on 10th August, and is waiting to be bought (like a lonely homeless kitten in need of a loving family) in your local Tesco, WHSmith Travel, Waterstone’s and all good bookshops and online retailers. There are some decent deals going at the moment too (£3.85 in Tesco and Buy One Get One Half Price in WHSmith and Waterstone’s). The paperback edition also comes with some nifty Extra Material in the back, and a sneak peek of HUNTED (the Voices Book 2).
Secondly, to celebrate the release of the paperback edition, the lovely folk at Headline are letting me run a LEGO themed competition. You simply have to build a LEGO piece inspired by DEFENDER (see below for my wonderful Marketer’s attempt at one) and you could win a LEGO Technic set (rrp £54.99) of the exact model of motorbike Pilgrim rides in the book! How bloody cool is that? Click HERE for all the competition details. (And you’re 100% encouraged to rope a kid in to help with it – just some random kid if you want, doesn’t matter whose. Just make sure to give them back afterwards.) It doesn’t have to be anything fancy (although I am secretly hoping for a miniature scale Hotel-Casino in the shape of a steamboat); I will be as impressed with cleverness or ingenuity than anything complex. Anyhow, have fun with it and go #BuildTheVoices.
