-First up, here's my homepage: www.samenthoven.com. It's the central hub of my sinister ever-evolving internet empire, BWAHAHAHAHA! erm, sorry. There you'll find direct links to all the places on the web where I maintain a lurking presence. If you've got a profile or page on any of those sites yourself feel free to add me, send me messages (I try to check all the pages once a day) or simply take a look to see what I'm up to.
-Trapped By Monsters is a joint blog where I team up with a posse of (now) sixteen excellent authors and illustrators of thrilling books and stories for young people. News, reviews, stories, writing advice, competitions, illustrations, delirious ravings about dark caves and horrible monsters – if you want it (or even if you don't!) TBM has got the lot.
-Have you enjoyed My Name is O? Have you (ahem!) read my other books - Crawlers; Tim, Defender of the Earth and The Black Tattoo? [You have? That makes me very happy! :D] Well, would you like some ideas about what to read next? If so, my LibraryThing Profile could be a good place to look. There I've put together a list of FIVE HUNDRED FINE BOOKS – things that I've read and love that you might like, too. The list is constantly being tweaked and updated and it's a mish-mash of all sorts: novels, comics, biography, history, art, science, whatever. It's a personal selection of favourite things, with no artificial separations by subject matter or (woo!) so-called 'age appropriateness': the only criterion is, "Do I think it's fantastic?" The widget at the side of this page will pick something out for you at random, but on the profile page there are a bunch of different ways into the list – reviews, author cloud, etc [isn't LibraryThing awesome?] – as well, of course, as a link to the list itself. It's also another place where you can leave messages for me if you like. Be my guest!
-My ContactAnAuthor Page. Interested in me coming to talk at your school, bookshop or local library? I LOVE doing events and visits. If you're a teacher, librarian or bookseller check out my page at ContactAnAuthor here. And of course, if you're reading this and you're not a teacher, librarian or bookseller but you'd still like to see and hear me come and do my stuff, then please send your nearest teacher, librarian or bookseller to that page, too!
-Barrington Stoke. I wrote My Name is O especially for Barrington Stoke, hoping (but not knowing) they would publish it: the fact that they did makes me very happy! To find out more about Barrington Stoke and the amazing work they do, click here.
