My Big Idea

It is Friday (late!), and this is the second installment of My Big Idea.

My Big Idea is as follows: I put up a short story to celebrate every week sales reach a certain (modest) number, to thank readers for buying hardcover, and as a show of faith that blogs and free content make a difference.

People who link to the short story get entered for a draw for a Prize Pack (this week's is a Demon's Lexicon audio book, a selection of bookmarks and an Irish silver knife charm). Links from book bloggers count as extra, as I think book bloggers are awesome.

This story is set in the universe of The Demon's Lexicon, but it doesn't spoil you for any of it: it's the back story of one of the characters. The first part of this story is up here.

Thanks for everyone who's been reading The Demon's Lexicon, and hope you enjoy!

I would also like to give huge thanks to the creator of a new thing that thrills me to my socks - a Demon's Lexicon fan forum. In order to celebrate the new fan forum, I'd love you guys to go there and discuss what story you'd like to see up here next, and I promise to comply with the wishes of the majority. ;)

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy!
