Today is also the last day to enter the SF/F raffle giveaway.
I’ve teamed up with sci-fi authors Glynn Stewart, Christopher Ruz, Daniel Willcocks, and Matt Ward to do a SF/F raffle giveaway for FREE signed paperback copies of The Ragged Blade, Starship’s Mage, Slab City Blues: The Collected Stories, Dawn of Chaos, Cynetic Wolf, and Death Donor.

I realise many US readers will have a lot on their plate at the moment, but anyone seeking a distraction might want to know that the paperback edition of The Wolf’s Call – Book One of the Raven’s Blade – is now available in the US and Canada.
I’d normally do a paperback giveaway at this point but COVID chaos means I haven’t received my author copies yet. I hope to run a Wolf’s Call paperback giveaway closer to the release for The Black Song – Book Two of the Raven’s Blade, so watch out for that.
Mailing list subscribers will know that I ran the advance review copy giveaway for The Black Song last week – congratulations to the winners who have now been notified. For any US readers hoping for another chance, ACE Books is running a sweepstake giveaway for a paperback of The Wolf’s Call and an advance review copy of The Black Song. In order to enter head over to the sweepstake page: https://sweeps.penguinrandomhouse.com/enter/ravens-blade-sweepstakes
Please note the sweepstake is open to US residents only and will run until Sunday, May 24th.
I will also be running a signed Black Song hardcover giveaway for mailing list subscribers closer to the release date so be sure to sign up for a chance to win one.
Thanks, as always, to Steven Brand for his excellent narration.
A reminder that The Kraken’s Tooth, the second novella in this series, is now available for pre-order. Links on the book page.
In other news, I’m proud and delighted to announce that The Wolf’s Call has won the Booknest Fantasy Award for Best Traditionally Published Novel. Huge thanks to everyone who voted and congrats to my fellow winners. Best of all, I now own this badass blade!
