Huzzahhhhh for the spring has sprung… sort of! Frazzle here, yep, I survived the winter in the Land of Lorff (which is far worse than your winters of that I can assure you!) and now I’m looking forward to a time when the trees have leaves and the mad March hares are frolicking around the sunny meadows, why? Well, I eat them all, leaves, hares and meadows too, yummy!
I know winter means you human lot lock yourselves away and refuse to come out and spend any money on things like, I dunno, books and stuff like that. Now though get your purses, wallets out because it is the Year of the Dragon here in Lorff and I want you to know just how much YOU, yes, YOU can help the Opportunity Centre by buying your every own copy of our marvellous book!
So, let me know what got you through the winter, in England I believe it was canoes. Now to celebrate that spring thing we have a free book (of sorts) for you. It outlines all the hard work and its effects on local people that the Opportunity Centre does. You may have heard the due to Government cut backs the Centre has had its funding slashed and now they need to raise some serious money. The local newspaper has been getting on the issue and now lots of people are doing silly things like running and other sponsored activities to raise some money. I would like to say, dragon to human, well done everyone involved and a massive thanks for the support.
So yeah, what was I on about? Huh? The sponsors, no, before that! The free book is on that Worrow guys blog, www.darrenworrow.blogspot.com and here to read on Wattpad: http://www.wattpad.com/41003859-get-frazzled It gives the low down on all the work, hold on, said that bit haven’t I? Well it also gives a short extract of all the stories in the book and also details the making of the book from idea to masterpiece!
So get reading guys and spread the word for me, there’s a good human. If you want to read this on your kindle, because that Worrow bloke does go on a bit, please let the mortal know and he will send it to you on a MOBI format, the one that works on kindles.
So, we look forward to hearing from you all this spring, tell us more about yourself and what you are doing to spread the word of Frazzle! Big thanks go to Alan Waters of The Rowde Village Magazine for donating a full colour advert on the back on this month’s issue.
Huzzah, over and out!

Thanks to cuts by the Government the local Council have to slash funding for the Opportunity Centre, you can read about it all by clicking on these links. So it goes without saying, the Centre need YOUR help now more than ever, please buy a copy of our book from the sites on the homepage or our buying from our webstore means 100% of your money will go direct to the fund.
You can also donate some extra money on the homepage which will go directly to the centre if you wish, please give us what you can and help these kids get the suport they need.

So this portrait painter claiming to be the one Jake Woods wanders into the Castle Lorff today, the king gets all excited, like he's here to paint him! Huzzah, no chance, he's here to paint yours truly, do you think he got my best side?

Huzzah! Are you getting bored of me saying that yet? Too bad, its my catchphrase and if you read the book you'd know what I mean wouldn't you? Yes, Frazzle the Dragon here asking you the ravishing reader to check out some of this new stuff. First up is some interviews hosted on Cecily Magnon's blog. As you know Cecily wrote the amazzzzing story "The Storekeeper," for our lovely book and she has taken to interviewing the other authors. So here is the link to interviews with Holly Kothe and Graham Downs, check it out! http://books.iggylife.com/
(oh, I think that Worrow bloke is going to talking on there soon, and the much more lovely Richelle too!)
Next up show your love (I know, you've got a lot of it to give) to David at askdavid.com; he's given us some free promotion in which normal people have to pay for, I was going to threaten him with one of my fire-burps but he insisted before I got the chance to give him the old huzzah! http://askdavid.com/reviews/book/anthology/7627
Take a look, write a some nice words about us there....oh yeah and share it, shake it and like it; awl, thank you, Frazzle out!

Huzzah, do you think I might be getting bored of saying Huzzah? Never! It’s a call; a warning that fire will come bolting from my jaws any second now, so watch out because I set anything on fire, trees, soufflés, underpants, you name it. But, (and this is a big butt) if you have read the book you will know this wouldn’t you? Huh? What do you mean you haven’t read it because you have a Kobo eReader or you only download things on your iPad, show off! So for all of you with Kobo’s I am delighted to tell you that you can download it too: http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/i-am-not-frazzle
And all you flashy lot with your iPads, iPods, iRobots or whatever, you can download the book from iTunes too now: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/i-am-not-frazzle!/id785913922?mt=11
So what else has been going on I hear you ask, huh, you didn’t? Oh well I’m going to tell you anyway so there. Over of the Awesome Gang website they have been featuring the book:
See told you so, they are Awesome after all and they do have good taste. They even dragged me all the way from Lorff Castle for an interview, like I was a TV star or something; I blushed and went a bright yellow colour I swear! You can read the interview here: http://awesomegang.com/frazzle-the-dragon/
So what is next? Well, I’ve been rabbiting on about myself for far too long, I know, I know, because I’m worth it. But hey, it’s about time I waffled on about the other stories inside the book, so keep checking in and we will drag some of those authors away from their writing to have a chat with us, how about that?
