Introducing Armadillo Magazine for those of you who don’t know it. Author Mary Hoffman obviously doesn’t have enough to do “just” writing very good books for children and teenagers. So, some years ago she started a magazine about children’s books, which now has turned into an online magazine. And it’s only £5, so everyone subscribe please! Mary’s good at networking, and if you take a closer look you’ll see that most of her book reviewers are other authors.
To tell the truth, until recently I had avoided Mary’s Stravaganza series, for the poor reason I didn’t feel the covers were my kind of covers. Once I ignored that ridiculous idea, I found some very enjoyable books. Even the Resident IT Consultant reads them and likes them.
As Mary won’t blow her own trumpet in Armadillo, I’ll just say that she has a new book out in early April called The Falconer’s Knot. It’s a romantic murder mystery for teenagers, set in medieval Italy. It’s great. Read it.
