I fully intended to make some very, very exciting and entertaining posts here in the last couple of weeks. But then I got ill. I’m better now, so no sympathy required – and to be honest, like most men beset with a temporary affliction of the flu or cold sort, I was able to generate more than enough self-sympathy (trending towards self-pity) to keep myself comforted. Regular updates of the moaning and groaning and whimpering sort were provided to those around me, to ensure that everyone understood just how much I was suffering, and how manly I was being in not just giving up and spending all day every day in bed. Heroic, I was. Man flu is a terrible, terrible thing.
Anyway, now that I’m more or less functional again, I plan to clear a little bit of shelf space by attempting to give away some signed books. Hurrah! This is going to be a staged process, and stage one is somewhat experimental. So …

Now I’m not, to put it mildly, expecting a tidal wave of requests for these, so here’s the plan: if you are interested, e-mail me at the address on the Contact page, expressing your interest in one or the other. In the event that I get more than one request for each, I’ll pick a winner at random and get back in touch asking for a mailing address, and how you’d like me to sign or dedicate the book.
Worry not, monolingual English readers – there will be additional giveaway action imminently for you too (though your chances of benefiting from it will be somewhat higher if you’re signed up as a fan on the Winterbirth Facebook page).
