A Couple of Good Yarns

Both these yarns could be yours!

Both these yarns could be yours!

In a rush of blood to the head caused by turning too many cartwheels in celebration of completing NaNoWriMo this year and knitting for Wovember, the Snail and I are giving things away – yarn and a book, or possibly yarn and yarns (the same word, the latter use attributed to sailors telling stories whilst engaged in menial work such as yarn-twisting – hence ‘to spin a yarn’).

First there’s my book Kirkenes Blue: a gripping yarn of intrigue and deceit under the beauty of the Northern Lights. The perfect read for when you need a rest from all the knitting!

But that’s not all! There’s a ball of fabulous self-patterning 4 ply yarn. There’s 100g in the ball which is plenty to make a pair of socks and it’s 75% Merino wool so is lovely and soft, but with 25% synthetic fibre to make it hard wearing [please note: I have no idea what some of that means but the Snail wrote it, and she knows about that stuff, so it must be right].

If you want a chance to win this pair of yarns, simply leave a comment below; and if you want to double your chances, head over to thesnailofhappiness’s blog and leave a comment on her post about this give-away too.

We will send the package anywhere in the world and all comments left before the end of Sunday 6 December (UK time) will be included in the draw.

Good luck!

BATDIG – the Paper Version!

BATDIG on CreateSpace

BATDIG on CreateSpace

At last, a copy of BATDIG you can safely read in the bath*! Both parts of the novel first published for the Kindle together in one predominantly papery place** plus some Author’s Ramblings about the creation of the story and a short excerpt from my next novel, Kirkenes Blue, which I guess I really must finish now.

BATDIG will be available on Amazon in the next 3 to 5 days ( so around the end of May then) but is also available from CreateSpace themselves, although only for American readers (at https://www.createspace.com/4705967).

ENJOY!

* Bath not included.

** I think there is a bit of cardboard in there too.
