Shadow of the Lantern Bearer is taking part in the 6th annual Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off (SPFBO) organized by grimdark fantasy author Mark Lawrence.

This is a fantastic competition designed to shine a light on excellent self-published fantasy books. Ten book blogs have very generously donated their time to consider the 300(!) entries over the following months. Each of the ten blogs will eventually put forward one book from their pool to form the 10 finalists who will battle it out for the grand prize of the Selfie Stick Award!

I’m thrilled (and a little nervous) to be taking part. If you’re interested in following along at home, you can join the SPFBO Facebook group or check out #SPFBO on Twitter.

And if you’re looking for some good books, check out the list of entries on Goodreads or have a gander at the previous winners and finalists on Mark Lawrence’s blog.
