Hello dragon fans - wait! Was that a bird? Was it a plane? Was it G'reth doing figures of eight around Bonnington's ears? No, it was the author TWEETING. Yes, fans of our hero can now follow his daily routines on Twitter (he is @chrisdlacey, whatever that means). We wait with bated snorts to see what pearls of wisdom will come off his phone. "Itch on my knee, just scratched it." "Run out of milk, popping to the shop." He's just seen me writing that and has assured me that he won't tweet anything banal. He will only use the service to say something interesting (what, we really have run out of milk???) or to keep fans (sorry FOLLOWERS) up to date with current book developments. He thinks I've got the hump because my blog might become redundant. No chance! Where else can you see pics of the covers or photos of events etc. By the way, we've just had the proper cover run outs for FIRE WORLD and they look AMAZING. Even though I say it myself, this is just the most fantastic book. Dare I say it, the best in the series. Hrrr! The author is currently reading through the American proofs, which means that will be in production soon. Very exciting. Then, of course, it's full puffle ahead for THE FIRE ASCENDING. More on that in the posts leading up to Christmas (47 shopping days to go).
