Well the number of shopping days that are left until Christmas are quickly dwindling away and before we know it the last posting date for Christmas cards will be upon us. There are some very smug people in the office who have finished with the rush of Christmas for the most part and merely have some items to finishing knitting before they are all prepared. Others amongst are number are still saying there is plenty of time left to go shopping.
So with that in mind we thought it appropriate to announce our latest book review is now up on the site, The Return of Knecht Ruprecht by Olivia Black and what a seasonal treat it is! Something that brings a fresh twist to Christmas and may even get those of you who are struggling to find their Christmas spirit to get in the mood before December even arrives.
NaNoWriMo continues to march on and there isn’t a day that goes by when it isn’t mentioned to some degree, mostly, we must admit, with a large amount of frustration, though there seems to have been a break through and the 50,000 word count target seems to be rapidly approaching for most.
It does mean that End of Days from the Chronicles of Celadmore may well be coming to all good retailers a lot sooner than we all hoped – watch this space for more news as it arrives and just to tempt your literary tastebuds we give you the teaser back blurb from End of Days:
The end is here. Aksoth’s forces roam unchecked across the plains of Celadmore, the Allied Spirit have been forced to retreat to the fallen city of Grashindorph. Within the city there is trouble. Leaders of each of the countries of Celadmore seek to control the city. Scheming and corruption distract the people from preparing to stand against Aksoth in one final battle. Revolution stirs amongst the poorest of the people, Venetia seeks to restore Gruagadon to his rightful place on the throne of Grashindorph. In this final bastion, they must find victory or Aksoth will purge the realm of light of all life.
