FANTASY GIVEAWAY – 5 Reasons Game of Thrones Is Addictive

I love Game of Thrones, both the books and the TV show. As a fantasy writer myself, I was keen to sponsor this EPIC Game of Thrones Giveaway with 16 prizes.

Prizes include a Game of Thrones board game, sculpture, bookmark, and the leather bound boxed set.

You can enter here for the chance to win.

So, why is Game of Thrones such an awesome show?

Here are 5 Reasons Game of Thrones Is Addictive:

  1. The world’s immersive. Brilliantly constructed and visually stunning.
  2. The compelling characters. But more than this – there’s no one main character. At the start, you think it’s Ned. Then Danerys, Jon or Tyrion. But there’s no single lead.
  3. Main characters die. A lot. I won’t do spoilers, but it’s shocking. The plot itself is epic, with enough twists to keep you guessing.
  4. No one’s truly good…or bad. I write anti-heroes, so this is why I love Game of Thrones. The morality is grey, which means you never know how someone will act or what secret will be uncovered.
  5. It’s an engrossing story of extremes. Honour and betrayal, revenge and loyalty, cruelty and compassion… As well as the contrast between human politics, love affairs, and murders and fantastical white walkers, dark magic and dragons.

The result? An epic show with a core of humanity.

Why do you find Game of Thrones addictive?

When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground

Good Luck!

REMEMBRANCE DAY – Heroes and Writing

Yesterday was Remembrance Sunday. My grandad and great-grandads, like most people’s, fought in the First and Second World Wars.

Looking through their medals as a kid is a memory that’s stuck with me.

BLOOD GODS is my latest novella, which is released in February in the COUNTING STARS box set. Set in the REBEL VAMPIRES world, it was inspired by a poppy. The symbol of remembrance, heroism and sacrifice. It commemorates the war dead.

How do you become a hero? What’s true sacrifice? And what does it mean to be human, even if humans sometimes act like the monsters? 

 

These are all the core ideas that inspire and drive me. I’m excited to tell you more when the box set’s released…

I remember sitting turning over the paper poppy each year and wondering what it meant. Then studying the First World War and seeing those scarlet fields. And at least partly understanding.

When people ask where inspiration comes from for my books, the honest answer is: life. Sometimes, the spark has been there from childhood.

Old medals and paper poppies. Or the heroes still fighting.

 

GUNPOWDER, TREASON AND PLOT – Why Fire Inspires My Books

Last night in Britain it was BONFIRE NIGHT: or the night over 400 years ago that Guy Fawkes and 12 other young men planned to blow up Parliament…and the King.

It’s a violent story of religious persecution, traitors, and betrayal. With 36 barrels of gunpowder.

When the plot was foiled the night before, Londoners lit bonfires to celebrate.

Later, effigies of Fawkes – ‘Guys’ – were burnt on the bonfires.

Why am I telling you this tale?

Because it still inspires me. Fire weaves throughout my books. Its power, danger and thrill.

BLOOD RENEGADES is built around a bonfire, with the vampire Light being the ‘Guy’:

I’ve always been attracted to the flames. That moment when the voice inside whispers to throw yourself on the bonfire, until you’re consumed Guy-like.

BLOOD RENEGADESBLOOD RENEGADES is also a violent story of persecution, traitors and betrayal. It’s written as a modern day terrorist inquiry: what’s the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter?

Who decides?

Light – a vampire anti-hero, who’s struggling for redemption and recovering from slavery – finds himself with the power to light the fuse and burn the world.

Yet if he doesn’t, then he’ll be the one burning at the end of his trial:

I glanced down through the glass to the courtyard below.

There was the bonfire, with the stake and ropes to tie me all pretty ready to roast for Easter.

 

BLOOD RENEGADES

Fire fascinates me:  in BLOOD RENEGADES, it’s Light’s familiar friend, weapon, and enemy.

Light plays with it, fights with it and is hurt by it. And if he doesn’t win the trial, he’ll be burned to ash by it…

Find out what happens to Light here.
