Yesterday Was Ragnarök, But We’re Still Here. Time For A Contest!


Surtur did not crack the sky with his flaming sword. The sooty cock of Hel did not crow. And while we here on the Canadian prairies are still stuck in the depths of Fimbulwinter, I’ve been seeing signs of spring elsewhere.

So I guess that means the apocalypse didn’t come.

Time to celebrate!

If you have already done all of those things, and own the books, thank you! There’s also something in this contest for you. If you help promote the contest on your social media feeds, I’ll send you a fun bag of Thunder Road related swag.

A Month Of Letters Contest

As some readers may know, I’m participating in Mary Robinette Kowal’sA Month of Letters” challenge.

The gist according to Mary is:

  1. In the month of February, mail at least one item through the post every day it runs. Write a postcard, a letter, send a picture, or a cutting from a newspaper, or a fabric swatch.
  2. Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.

It’s been a blast so far, and I’ll be dropping something fun in the post today on my way to work.

I’ve also been thinking, since I’m going to the post office everyday anyway, why not send out some copies of Thunder Road?

So here’s the deal:

Every Thursday (Thor’s Day!) in the month of February, I’ll be giving away a copy of Thunder Road; one here on the blog, and one each on Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads.

To have a chance to win that first copy, drop me a comment on this post and tell me about your favourite fable, folktale, or legend. I’ll be randomly choosing a winner Thursday morning, so please spread the word.

Oh, and do feel free to send me a letter, I’ll write you back!
