Prince of Thorns is TEN today!

 Prince of Thorns has been on the shelves for a decade!

The UK paperback is in its 25th printing.



I'll take the chance to say thanks - thank you to my readers (and my publishers) for letting me spend the past ten years writing stories, and more than that - living in them. It's been an unexpected privilege.



Check out the 9th8th7th6th5th4th3rd2nd, and 1st birthday round-ups. 



I now have 15 books on the shelves!


The most recent addition was The Girl And The Mountain, in April.


Being a numbers guy as well as a words guy I like to keep track of things and record them for when I'm doddery and old, looking back at my 'glory' days.

On Goodreads Prince of Thorns has passed 100,000 ratings!



I have been very neglectful of the blog of late, and it's shown in plateauing traffic, but still ~30,000 hits a month isn't too shabby and this year it cruised past 3.5 million hits in total.



And my quest to conquer Twitter crawls on...



Well, that's my annual stock-take. Over & out, until next year.
