If you've been following this blog and wondering why there have been no posts for a couple of years, it's because The Last Dragon Chronicles, of which Gadzooks the writing dragon was a major part, ended nearly six years ago. And yet, to this day, people still write to me about the Chronicles, much more than they do about my Erth Dragons series. This will probably be my last post on Zookie's pad, because like TLDC the Erth Dragons are also coming to an end. In April 2018, my final dragon novel, THE NEW AGE, will hit the UK book stores (a bit later in the year for the USA). It's a good book, I think, and there are several nods to the Chronicles in it. Indeed, if you go to my Erth Dragons blog at www.erthdragons.wordpress.com in approximately one week's time, you'll be able to read the prologue from The New Age, which features some of my favourite characters - the firebirds. And without giving too much away, there will be a guest appearance by a very popular Pennykettle dragon right at the end of The New Age. So there's something to look forward to, I hope. Have a great Christmas everyone. Happy reading. Hrrr!
