The Destruction of Kirill - Launch Day and Giveaway!

Today's the day my first published m/m novella, The Destruction of Kirill, is released!  It's been a bit of a headache all the way through its life, starting from the fact it took me about a year to even start writing it, to things accidentally going 'live' before they were supposed to (I'm looking at you, Amazon), but we've got here in the end.

If you're curious, missed the previous post, or you've not seen me freak out over Twitter yet, here's the synopsis:
Born in the workhouse and moulded into an obedient slave, Kirill expected his life to be simple: serve his wealthy owners until they grew bored and sold him, repeating the process again and again until the day he died. He never wanted his master's precious only son to take an unhealthy interest in him, and he didn't expect one single horrifying summer's day to plunge his life into ruin.

Now he has to adjust to another kind of life: one with a man who never wanted to own a slave and has no use for the one he now possesses. But just when Kirill thinks he's finally found normality it all comes crashing down again—and worse, this time it's all his own fault.

Hauled into a world of chaos and destruction by a charming stranger, Kirill struggles to manoeuvre his way without letting both his past and his grief overwhelm him, but is his rescuer all that he seems, or has Kirill walked from one hell straight into another?
If you'd like an excerpt, you can find one from Chapter 4 over at the announcement page.  And, if any of that whets your fancy, you can pick up an ebook copy at any of the usual suspects:

In addition, due to the fact that people were kind (or brave) enough to preorder TDoK on All Romance eBooks, the ARe Edition comes with an exclusive bonus chapter.  It's not something I'm likely to do again, so don't worry about that, but for a d├ębut release from a completely unknown author, that anyone would want to preorder it at all meant a lot to me.

I think I mentioned something about a giveaway before, didn't I?  Here it is: you can win an autographed paperback copy of The Destruction of Kirill, an antique brass style handmade necklace and a print and / or digital copy of the ARe Edition extra chapter (depending on whether you want both, or just one or the other).

It's easy to enter: you simply enter your email in the Rafflecopter box below.  After the contest has ended on the 26th July, I'll email you to get your physical mailing address and I'll post out the package on the 2nd August.  Please make sure it's a valid email address and one you actually check; if I email you and you've not replied before Thursday at the latest, I reserve the right to select another winner.

If you've got any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via one of the methods on the right, and good luck.
