Happy World Tolkien Day everyone! Thanks to my good friend, and fellow book addict Ao Bibliophile for the head's up. I wanted to share one of my favourite Tolkien quotes:
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
I hope everyone's getting ready for their great escape tomorrow - when you can download your free copy of "The Griffin Cryer" and escape this world for spell or two with Frankie and her griffin!
Our facebook event is going great guns – I say 'our' rather than 'mine' as I've had so much support from friends old and new.
