Good news at last. My copies of Destiny’s Path: Caradoc of the North Wind have finally arrived.

I am gong to start mailing the books out to the winners of the competition in the next few days, but remember that the books are coming from London, England, so if you live in another country, you may have to wait a couple of weeks before your book arrives.

Here is my list of people who have won:

Isabel from Germany, Amanda from Texas, Alexandria from Milford, Jamie from Australia, Ingrid from Champaign, Carolyn from Maple Grove, Brittany from Windsor, Emily from Singapore, Alyssa from Ashburn, Sarah from Marblehead, Celine from St Charles, Taylor from Olive Branch, Laura from Innisfil, Tayler from Southaven, Theresa from Houston, Sumayyah from Houston, Megan from West Seneca.

If you sent in answers and were told you had won, but you are not on the above list, please get in touch.

Otherwise, happy reading when your book arrives. It’s one of my favourites.

For anyone else, you should be able to find the book online somewhere even if it is not published in the country in which you live.

Caradoc Competition Closed

This is just a quick blog to let you know that the Destiny’s Path: Caradoc of the North Wind competition is now closed. The winners have all been notified - or they should have been. If you sent in an entry before the 14th of April, and you haven’t heard from me, please write again, otherwise, I’m sorry, but all my spare copies have now been won.

American readers of Warrior Princess - which is what the Destiny’s Path series was called in America - should be able to buy copies of the 4th book on import, or it is also available on as a kindle edition, for those who are up on the new tech.

There was some confusion in the book warehouse about my address - which is why I have not yet received my copies of the book. They were trying to deliver to a house four doors down the same road, but because they didn’t get an answer they sent the books back. This has all been sorted out now and I am expecting the books on Monday 16th or Tuesday 17th April. As soon as they arrive, I will begin signing and mailing them out to the winners, but please remember that the books are coming from London, England, so if you live in America or anyplace other than the UK, you should expect to have to wait two or three weeks for the book to arrive.

I’d just like to say thanks to all of you who sent in the answers - if I’d known you were all so knowledgeable on the series, I might have made the questions a little harder!

Warrior Princess Book 4/Destiny’s Path: Caradoc of the North Wind - COMPETITION!

First of all, let me apologise for not blogging recently. I’ve been crazy busy with new projects and there wasn’t a whole lot of new stuff to tell you about Faerie Path and Warrior Princess/Destiny’s Path.

As most of you will already know, the American Publishers decided they did not want to publish the 4th Warrior Princess book. The series was bought by a British publisher, and they decided to publish all four books - under the new series title of Destiny’s Path. The 4th book is called Destiny’s Path: Caradoc of the North Wind, and it was released in the UK and Canada and Australia and New Zealand etc on the 5th April 2012. I’m really pleased about this, as you can imagine, because at one point I thought this book might never see the light of day.

I’ve been told my copies of the new book are in the mail, so it’s time for me to set up the competition to allow a few of you to win signed copies. I’ve been getting regular mails about this for a while now, so I know people are eager to get their hands on a copy. With that in mind, I’m going to work the competition so that the winners will need to have read the first three books quite carefully.

As always with my competitions, there is no specific closing date, and I will send copies to winners in the order that the correct answers arrive with me - so, first come, first served, and I’ll blog to let you know when all my spare copies are gone.

Also, as before, don’t respond in the comments section of this blog - go to the contact page and write to me from there. Any answers given as comments will be ignored. So, write to me with your answers and I will get straight back to you to let you know if you’ve won. Then I’ll be asking for your home address. If you are under 14 years of age, you should really ask your parents or guardians before giving out your home address, although once I have sent the book, I will not be keeping the information.

So, here are the questions I’d like you to answer.

1. When Branwen arrives at Doeth Palas in book 1, she is given two servant women to help her get ready for the welcoming feast. (Chapter 13). What are the names of these two servants?

2. What is the full name of Iwan’s father?

3. When Branwen and Blodwedd enter Chester in disguise in Chapter 15 of The Emerald Flame/Merion of the Stones, they encounter a fishmonger. Name the six fish he tells them he sells.

There you are - as I told you, first come first served!

Good luck.
