So why not make a contest of it?

Book Cover Fun – the winners!

About 4 weeks ago we ran a competition to recreate one of our book covers using toys, people, posts of custard – whatever.

The reason we’ve waited until now to publish the winners is not because we forgot to check the email account that the entries were sent into, oh no! The reason is far more interesting than that, we’re sure – and when we’ve worked out what the reason actually is, we might post it here. (more…)

WIN STUFF: Friday 13th Giveaway

Not that I am in anyway superstitious (only when it comes to the order of which I put on my football gear. Oh, and magpies. And not putting new shoes on a table.

So how’s about Angry Robot make Friday 13th a lucky day? To win 13 of our titles, all you have to do is
