My German publisher, Hobbit Presse, has relaunched their website – http://www.hobbitpresse.de/ – as the central meeting point for fantasy readers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This is what you can find there:
– News about Hobbit Presse authors and books
– Downloads of the Hobbit Presse Newspaper ‘Tolkien Times’, beginning from 2001, including many articles from the Tolkien Times and Klett-Cotta Blog.
– Book trailers and video interviews.
– Information about author readings or appearance dates.
To celebrate I’m running Goodreads giveaways for signed audio CD editions of Das Lied des Blutes (Blood Song) and Der Herr des Turmes (Tower Lord) – read by Detlief Biestedt, translation by Hans and Sara Riffel. Winners will also receive a signed bookplate for each book. The German language edition of Queen of Fire is due for release in September so watch out for another Giveaway then.
The Blood Song audiobook – read by the inestimable Steven Brand – is today’s daily deal at Audible.co.uk, available at the special price of £1.99 (reduced from £16.62). Extremely unlikely I know but it would be nice to get to no. 1 in the UK Audible chart, some bloke called Robert Galbraith kept me off it last year (whoever he is). Offer ends at midnight GMT.
