The 12 Deaths of Christmas.... brought to you by The Chainsaw Gang
Forget about a white Christmas, the next twelve days are going to be decidedly darker than usual, thanks to the gruesome antics of The Chainsaw Gang. What do you mean, you don't know what The Chainsaw Gang is? It is only a group of most of my favourite kids and YA authors of the moment! Authors whose names you will recognise from Book Zone book reviews and interviews from the past twelve months, and today they are embarking on a very special blog tour, morbidly (but very fittingly) entitled The 12 Deaths of Christmas.
A number of bloggers were invited to submit a few questions to The Gang, and over the next two weeks they will be stopping off at a number of blogs to provide those answers. The tour kicked off today at the brilliant My Favourite Books and you can read the answers to the questions that Liz posed to them here. You will also be able to see the first verse of the the brand new pre-Christmas song, The Twelve Deaths of Christmas, with a new verse being added daily thereafter. The rest of the tour schedule is as follows:
Tuesday 7th December - Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books
Wednesday 8th December - Narratively Speaking
Thursday 9th December - Wondrous Reads
Friday 10th December - here at The Book Zone
Saturday 11th December - Book Gazing
Sunday 12th December - Book Gazing
