I am having a party to celebrate Midsummer’s Eve and the publication of Raffie Island – the second book in the Portal Series. You can join the party on Facebook and interact with everyone else there until the 22nd June, or you can join the party here until the 30th June.

I will post a party activity or giveaway every day until the 22nd June (all of which are open to entries worldwide until the 30th June):

  3. your name in a draw for a giraffe coat pull

  5. send in a drawing of your favourite character from Realand  (book one of the Portal Series) and your drawing will be posted in the gallery.
  6. If you haven’t read Realand yet then you can ask for a free e-book until the 22nd June by emailing djkirkby AT gmail DOT com
