Garth Nix, is a legend, mostly because he's an excellent writer but also because he sent us the first three chapters of his new book Clariel, which isn't released until September 2014. Garth is my daughter's favourite author by a long way, so she's understandably over the moon. He also sent two bell charms which she's going to have made into a necklace. Soooo cool. Almost cool enough to inspire me to finish the last 15K words of my own latest manuscript. Haven't written anything since I started working full time again I suppose if I needed inspiration I should take it from this!
