We’re running a treasure hunt with Swapit.co.uk from now until the 6th January 2013! There will be an image linking to the Swapit treasure hunt somewhere in the front page – right now it’s embedded somewhere a little hidden in the past…can you find it? You’ll need to be registered with Swapit before you can follow the link in the picture – get hunting!

Just a quick notice to let you know that the art and writing competitions held on The Clan since its beginning have returned this autumn in the form of the new Quarterly Competitions! Check out the announcement in the Quarterly Competitions forum by MidnightSWolf for more details, but in a nutshell, the new competitions combine the best of both the artistic and writing competitions with a new, totally open format – you can choose whatever medium you wish (whether painting, writing, sketching, sculpting, singing or anything else you can think of – we dare somebody to enter through the medium of interpretative dance!) as long as your entry fits the theme of this quarter’s competition. This time, the theme is Gods and Goddesses. For more info check out the announcement in the Quarterly Competitions forum!

As you may have seen on the Clan Events page, Michelle Paver, author of Gods and Warriors, will be visiting Gothenburg from the 27th until the 29th September at the Gothenburg Book Fair! Any Swedish readers – or anybody in Gothenburg around that time – if you’re a fan of Gods and Warriors, the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness or Dark Matter, get in touch for more details about Michelle’s visit! It’s Michelle’s last overseas trip before the end of October so if you’re in the area, be sure to get in touch!
August 27th, 2012
It’s the 27th August and that means one thing – GODS AND WARRIORS has been released in the UK! We hope you’re as excited as we are – we can’t wait to hear what you think about the first in Michelle’s brand new series set in the Bronze Age. If you haven’t already got a copy of Gods and Warriors, you can pick up a copy through Amazon (which will ship tomorrow) or your local bookstore. Don’t forget, you can also hear the entire first chapter FREE, here on The Clan.
Once you’ve started reading Gods and Warriors do swing by The Clan’s forums and tell everyone what you thought – we’d be very interested in hearing your opinions! Also, once you’re up to Chapter Four, you may be interested in a week-long competition we’re going to run here on The Clan – a multiple choice quiz on the events of the first four chapters which will be going live here tonight (UK time), the Gods and Warriors Wisdom Contest!
So check back tonight for the inaugural Gods and Warriors competition, and make sure to enter – the top eight entrants will be receiving signed copies of GODS AND WARRIORS from Michelle, making them highly valuable collector’s items!

Keep an eye on The Clan’s front page over the next two weeks – starting August 4th there will be audio snippets of the first chapter of GODS AND WARRIORS released over a week through a lucky few literary blogs across the internet! We’ll be publishing the exact details of the blogs closer to the time, but get excited now – you’ll be getting a chance to hear the first chapter of GODS AND WARRIORS very soon indeed!

Those of you who attended the Michelle Paver Superfan Event last Saturday will have been the first in the world to see the brand new GODS AND WARRIORS Trailer – and the first website to host it in all its glory is The Clan! For those of you who weren’t at the event – start watching now – it’s sure to get you excited for what promises to be an earthshaking new series!

It’s my pleasure to announce to you an exciting new competition being run here on The Clan to start the countdown to the fantastic new series by Michelle Paver, Gods and Warriors! Thanks to Puffin (the publishers of Gods and Warriors) we have some fantastic prizes to give away to those who pre-order their copy of Gods and Warriors.
The premise of this event is simple – we’re looking to reward Clanners for pre-ordering Gods and Warriors from 16th July until August 27th. All you have to do is pre-order your copy of Gods and Warriors through Amazon.co.uk, and send the confirmation code you receive as part of the pre-ordering process to Puffin at the following email address, and you will:
- receive a FREE poster of Gods and Warriors, signed by Michelle, which will be mailed to you the week following publication;
- be entered into a draw for four (4) tickets to Michelle’s event at the Bath festival on 7th October 2012 (note that travel and all other expenses will be the responsibility of the winner)
- be entered into a second draw for an exclusive sneak peek of the first chapter of Gods and Warriors!
There’s absolutely no catch – all you need to do is pre-order your copy of Gods and Warriors through Amazon.co.uk before the 27th August and send the confirmation code to firstname.lastname@example.org. Puffin will be monitoring the pre-orders very closely, so get cracking – these exclusive bonuses will only be available to members of The Clan until the 27th August!
If you have any queries regarding this event please send me a private message through The Clan’s interface and I’ll get back to you straight away. Gods and Warriors is on the horizon – the countdown begins now!
February 2nd, 2012
For those who have missed out on the big announcement in The Clan forum as well as the email sent out last week, we can now confirm that the first book in Gods and Warriors, Michelle’s latest series of novels set in the Bronze Age, will definitely be published this autumn!
The Clan has been looking forward to this for a long time, and we’ve been organising a series of events and activities to commemorate this very special year. Our first order of business is the Book Circle, where Clanners get to read a proof copy of Gods and Warriors before anyone else does.
There will also be competitions and lots of other activities (including online events with Michelle) that will run every single month, earning you great prizes as well as Nanuaks, The Clan’s virtual currency. Nanuaks are especially important this year, because the 50 Clanners who have scored the most Nanuaks will be invited to an exclusive launch event where they’ll get to meet Michelle face-to-face and everyone else connected with Gods and Warriors, too — how cool is that?
All of this is only available to members of The Clan. It’s free to join and is a fun, safe environment for all ages. If you haven’t yet joined The Clan, now’s a great time to get started!
