Win Above Ground Prizes!

As you may know, throughout November I’m running a blog tour to celebrate the print/ebook release of Above Ground.

This is the final FINAL version. Revised, refined, polished. I fixed the confusing bit where Emma and Dr Gray get into the car. I changed the scene where Emma goes to meet her friends and made it totally awesome. I rewrote the scene where Lilith walks to Rivton with Fang and Howl…

Also: the print version of the book has a map!

Okay, I’ll stop rambling and get to the point.

If you participate in the blog tour, by tweeting or leaving comments on the various stops etc, you can enter to win a prize in my mystery raffle. The prizes are secret, but it’s stuff I think any Above Ground fan would love to have.

To make things fair, I’m running the giveaway through rafflecopter — see the widget below. A week two recap of all the stops is here.

Good luck!

Interview on Whispers from the Abyss!

Whispers from the Abyss is the blog of horror/suspense author Richard Schiver.

Today, Richard has kindly posted a wee little interview with moi, asking when I first considered myself a writer, what I’m passionate about, and more.

Choice excerpt:

Despite the romantic ideal of the lonely author locked up in a cave somewhere, inscribing words on a stone tablet fuelled only by alcohol and caffeine, I ultimately believe that writing is for readers. If you don’t want someone to read that story one day, why write it down? I think that’s why I only recently began to think of myself as a writer — because previously I wasn’t really writing to share.

Are you a writer if you don’t have readers? If a tree falls in an empty forest, does it make a sound?

You can read the full interview here.
