Well, the GODSGRAVE ARC competition has come to an end, winners have been notified by email (they have til Friday to get back to me with their mailing addies, or I’ll draw new winners). I’m very chuffed to say it was a HUGE success, and between us, we managed to raise over $2,700 for the mighty Sea Shepherd.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, each and every one of you, for donating to the cause. It doesn’t matter how much money you contributed, the point is, you contributed, and for that, you have my deepest appreciation.
If the oceans die, we die, and every little bit helps.
Thanks for making this contest a huge success, I’m definitely going to be doing this again in future!
Those who follow me on twitter and instagram will know my amazing publishers at Harper Voyager UK sent me a bunch of GODSGRAVE ARCs recently. After asking around on the twitters how I should give these things away, the awesome @AimeeGoodreads suggested:
Which is about the coolest fucking idea I’ve ever heard. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do:
THIS COMPETITION IS OPEN INTERNATIONALLY
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, I KNOW YOU CAN READ BECAUSE YOU’RE ENTERING TO WIN A GODDAMN BOOK.
In order to go into the running to win a signed, personalized and doodled-upon UK ARC of GODSGRAVE, you must:
- Click this link, and donate to my favorite charity in the entire world, the mighty Sea Shepherd.
- A donation of $1.00 will net you one entry into the draw.
- A donation of $5.00 will net you five entries into the draw.
- You can donate more than that if you like, but you’ll still only get five entries, max. But give more if you can because Sea Shepherd are basically Chaotic Good pirates and are fucking amazing.
- I will personally match all donations combined.
- Take a screenshot, with proof of your donation.
- Mail said screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header GODSGRAVE ARC ENTRY
If you want to spread the word about the giveaway, that’d be awesome too. Just tweet the following, and remember the hashtag:

I WILL GIVE ONE ARC AWAY TO ONE RANDOM TWEETER
THIS COMPETITION CLOSES FRIDAY, JULY 28.
Sea Shepherd are currently celebrating their 40th year of fighting on the frontline of marine conservation. From combating illegal whaling to cleaning up oceanic pollution to campaigning for greater governmental involvement in oceanic protection, there is no organization in the world doing more to safeguard the future of the world’s oceans.
IF THE OCEANS DIE, WE DIE.
You can read more about the Shepherd and their amazing work here.

UK and Aus Droogs!
You wonderful peeps have been very patient, and lo, that patience is about to be rewarded. At long last, thanks to amazing talents of Mr Kerby Rosanes and the amazing design crew at Harper Voyager UK/Aus, I get to reveal the UK/Aus GODSGRAVE COVER.
I’m not exactly sure what I did to make the cover gods love me so much. Maybe I saved a screaming bus-load of their demigod children in a past life or something. But holy shit, this thing is awesome 😀
GODSGRAVE is now available for preorder from the following amazing stores:
Full version of cover (with flaps and back copy) coming soon.
Un-animated version below.
Details about the Waterstones and Goldsboro special editions are coming soon, I promise. I know the wait is literally killing some of you, thank you for your patience!
