Discover the Savage World – a gruesome blog tour and giveaway

The world can be a pretty cruel place.

I went in Marks and Spencer recently for example and they had sold out of Jaffa cakes. That’s the kind of savage situation I am faced with on a daily basis.

Believe it or not, there are other parts of the world, outside the yummy mummy Bishopston bubble, that face even trickier conditions, if you can even imagine such a thing. Belle and I have been learning all about it in our new book – ‘Discover the Savage World’ from Miles Kelly.

As someone who doesn’t really like to read the news, having to face up to the fact that the earth is blighted with war, fire, sandstorms and what not is pretty scary stuff, but also quite exciting. We do live in a pretty amazing place after all and a lot of the powerful forces at work are often more impressive than terrifying.

Discover the Savage World

Take the savage challenge!

To celebrate the launch of the book Miles Kelly are holding a savage photo challenge. Every day simply post your picture to Facebook or Twitter, inspired by the word of the day. Make sure you use the hashtag #worldgonewild so that Miles Kelly can find it. (You can tag them on Facebook and Twitter too if you want.) At the end of the challenge a winner will be chosen to win a bundle of books worth £100.

Discover the Savage World

The word prompt today is ‘the letter S’ and so I have a picture of a spooky sweeties and a spider. Share your picture today on the same theme to be in with a chance to win the prize bundle. To discover the word inspiration tomorrow you will need to pay a visit to Jenny at The Gingerbread House.

Wild World Challenge

In the meantime I also have a chance to win on of five copies of the book, so that you can discover some gruesome facts about the world for yourself. Plus, if you fancy this or any of the other great books from Miles Kelly then simply use the code BLOGTOUR01 for 10% off any Miles Kelly book from until 21st November.

    I find it both terrifying and exiting that we live on a small planet in a giant universe with no real idea of what might be out there (if anything) I don’t know what is more frightening that there may be other beings or not!
