Frogkisser! Out Late February 2017

Poor Princess Anya. Forced to live with her evil stepmother’s new husband, her evil stepstepfather. Plagued with an unfortunate ability to break curses with a magic-assisted kiss. And forced to go on the run when her stepstepfather decides to make the kingdom entirely his own.

Aided by a loyal talking dog, a boy thief trapped in the body of a newt, and some extraordinarily mischievous wizards, Anya sets off on a Quest that, if she plays it right, will ultimately free her land-and teach her a thing or two about the use of power, the effectiveness of a well-placed pucker, and the finding of friends in places both high and low.

Frogkisser! Frogkisser!

“Nix . . . masterfully infuses the weight of first recognizing one’s privilege with humor. Great fun with heart.”

– Kirkus Reviews, starred review


“With wonderfully inventive creatures, challenging vocabulary, and a captivating story, this fantasy is recommended as a first purchase for YA collections.”

– School Library Journal, starred review


“Nix has stirred up an intoxicating brew in Frogkisser!”

GIVEAWAY Time! I have 3 x all twelve FROGKISSER! character cards by Kathleen Jennings plus 3 x two Abhorsen's Bell Charms to give away.

To be in the random giveaway, what you need to do:
1. Buy/borrow/finagle a copy of FROGKISSER! Read it and write a review somewhere: Amazon, Waterstones, Booktopia, other bookseller sites, your blog, your site, Facebook, a short one on Twitter, wherever.
2. Tell me you have done so in the comments here, on this post. Not anywhere else. Quote link if you can, but it's not necessary. Reviews can be very short. Only one comment per person will count for the random draw. If you aren't on Facebook you can get someone who is to comment for you if you like.

On April 30th, I'll randomly pick three people who have posted here in the comments and will contact them to send their cards and bell charms.

Daniella SciutoHere's my mini review from Twitter: queen platywitch‏ @iwasaplatypus Ever wondered what it's like to kiss loads and loads of frogs? Ever wanted to go on an adventure? Yes! Then you must read Frogkisser. Now.2 weeks ago

Jade HarrisPosted on goodreads, not sure if this is the correct link but: <a href="" style="float: left; padding-right: 20px"><img border="0" alt="Frogkisser!" src="" /></a><a href="">Frogkisser!</a> by <a href="">Garth Nix</a><br/> My rating: <a href="">5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br /> Vastly entertaining exploration of a fairy tale world with a princess finding herself being the frog-kissing heroine who saves the day even when all she wanted to do was kiss (and rescue) one frog. Easy to read and perfect if you are looking for some light-hearted fun. <br/><br/> <a href="">View all my reviews</a>2 weeks ago
