Allison Awesome, thanks!


Alison Croggon Hi Allison - yes, a new book, Black Spring, is finished and forthcoming. But it will be a while before it's actually published.


Allison I loved your Pellinor series! Are you ever going to write anything new? Or do you already have a new book out and have I just missed it...?

Thanks! :)


Alison Croggon Hi Adrianja! Delighted to hear that you like the Pellinor books. Being a mod is above and beyond the call of duty.
