I’m pleased today to be taking part in a blog tour with Miles Kelly, for their Discover the Savage World book. This is the third in the Discover series, and focuses on the less fluffy parts of the world around us.
I got Small to review the book by using the cunning ploy of leaving it lying around the living room He told me he’d found it very interesting, he particularly likes the facts and the way you can dip in and out, but didn’t particularly like the layout. I think he found it a bit busy – he said it was all over the place, and I can see what he means. This encourages the dipping in and out aspect, as it’s quite difficult to sit down and focus on for terribly long, but I don’t think that’s of necessity a bad thing. It can be easier to absorb things in short bursts anyway, and a book with lots of information in will get picked up lots of times.
I hope you’re all going to play along with the photo challenge My #worldgonewild prompt is Machine. So I need you to go take a picture with that inspiration, and share it on Facebook or Twitter with the #worldgonewild hashtag.
What is a machine? I prowled the house looking for inspiration. There’s lots of it about. Or can you find anything outside? Can you guess what mine is?
The other bloggers taking part in the tour have their own prompts, and there are prizes – at the end of the tour, all photos will be added in to Facebook albums and the photo with the most likes wins a Miles Kelly book bundle with books of their choice worth £100. However, if you don’t win or can’t wait, you can get 10% off at MilesKelly.net using the code BLOGTOUR01.
While you’re hoping to win that particular prize, you’ll be pleased to learn that I’ve got 5 copies of the savage world book up for grabs. Leave me a comment telling me what part of our savage world you’d most like to visit to enter before midnight on 30th October. UK only I’m afraid, and address will be passed to the publisher for fulfilment. You can have an extra entry for tweeting, sharing on facebook, blog or otherwise, but you *must* leave an extra comment per entry or it doesn’t count. Prize winners must respond to me within 48 hours of notification, or I will redraw.
