MADNESS WON!

First, I’d like to thank everyone for humouring me with my odd giveaway. It was a lot of fun reading everyone’s offers.

But the MIGHTY THOR JRS has spoken! James has picked a winner and a runner up.

So, in classic Dancing with the Stars fashion (my wife makes me watch it, honest) we’ll start with the runner up:

Edea Baldwin (Alec Baldwin’s younger sister, apparently) is the winner of ebooks of both Beyond Redemption, and The Mirror’s Truth!

And the winner of the grand prize…signed, doodled, drooled on, well-‘loved’ copies of both Beyond Redemption, and The Mirror’s Truth, is…(I’m imagining a drum roll here so just bear with me)…IS…(tension building with ominous music)…WENDELL ADAMS!!!!! Now imagine Kermit going nuts, arms waving everywhere.

Ok.

Stop.

Thanks again folks!

Now I’d better get back to editing or I’m gonna miss the deadline on Swarm and Steel.

Cheers!

WINNING MADNESS

A box of THE MIRROR’S TRUTH just showed up and I’m itching to give one away. In fact, I have one copy left of BEYOND REDEMPTION as well. I think I’ll give ’em both away! As a pair! Signed and doodled and drooled upon and maybe slightly loved but not in a healthy platonic kinda way.

It probably goes without saying, but every time a writer holds a give away, they’re hoping for something in return. Reviews. Word of mouth. Publicity. A back rub. And I am no different. That said, I also like to muck things up and make them difficult thereby damned near ensuring I won’t get what I want. If reality is madness, expecting sane results would be…crazy!

And as you well know, I am very sane.

So here is the deal. This is a contest. The winner will get the signed copies of both BEYOND REDEMPTION and THE MIRROR’S TRUTH. The runner up will get ebook copies of both books. Third place will be politely ignored as only a Canadian can politely ignore someone.

But as I mentioned, I want something in return. You decide what you are willing to offer in return for the books. You put your offer in the comments below (or, if it’s easier, in the comments on this post on facebook), and a winner shall be picked on Monday, December 12th. You can offer whatever you want. A poem. Publicity. Bad advice. A book in trade. Anything. Wait wait wait. No, that’s a terrible idea. Nothing illegal. Uhhhhhh……Nothing too illegal.

I shall, however, not be picking the winner. The mighty Thor JRS shall bear that terrible burden! Is he open to bribes? Dunno! Not my problem!

The winners and I shall exchange goods once THE MIGHTY THOR JRS has chosen.

Let the madness begin!

Any offers not appearing here or on my facebook post will be politely ignored as there is no way THE MIGHTY THOR JRS can be bothered to go hunting for this stuff.

PRAISE FOR THE MIRROR’S TRUTH

Anthony Ryan, New York Times best selling author of the RAVEN’S SHADOW and DRACONIS MEMORIA series: “Michael R. Fletcher’s The Mirror’s Truth is a dark delight. Our trio of appalling but still somehow compelling protagonists – possibly sane aged warrior Bedeckt, kleptomaniac murder addict Stehlen and manically self-interested ‘greatest swordsman in the world’ Wichtig – return from the Afterdeath to find a world brought to the brink of all-out war by the mad boy-god Morgan. The pitch black humour, magically enhanced insanity and brutality that distinguished Beyond Redemption as a remarkable fantasy debut are present in full force, and often cranked up to eleven. Highly recommended, and not just because my evil reflection told me so.”

Django Wexler, author of the SHADOW CAMPAIGNS series: “Michael Fletcher’s MANIFEST DELUSIONS is the grimdarkest of grimdark, a filthy, rotting, fascinating world full of intriguing psychotics. It’s the sort of wonderful horror you can’t look away from, and there’s nothing else in the genre quite like it.”

Smash Dragons (www.smashdragons.blogspot.ca/): “The Mirror’s Truth is Grimdark at its finest. Dark, brutal, and totally uncompromising, it will cut you over and over again until you lie bloody and stricken on the floor.”

Leona’s Blog of Shadows (www.leonahenry.wordpress.com/) “The Reflections show the reader yet another level of depth and the character development reaches mind-blowing levels.”

Anna Smith-Spark, author of the grimdark fantasy epic, The Court of Broken Knives (Harper Voyager, 2017): “Dark, vile, funny, painfully human…. The best fantasy novel I’ve read this year.”

The Bibliosanctum (www.bibliosanctum.com/): “The Mirror’s Truth is a sequel that builds upon everything that made the first book so great and all-consuming, featuring storylines and characters that are grittier, twistier, and even more insane. In other words, it’s even more fucked up than Beyond Redemption…and I loved it.”
