A week ago, I started a Twitter competition to give my readers the chance of winning a signed copy of my new novel, The Atholl Expedition. The competition has been even more successful than I had hoped, with 234 retweets in total (across two original tweets) and an estimated reach of over 40,000 users.

I’m happy to announce that the winner of the competition, selected at random, is @AngieHoneybun who will receive her winning copy shortly.

Thank you to everyone who entered. From my point of view the experiment has been a success. It has earned me over 200 new followers and massive exposure for the book. In fact, it has rather run away with itself and I have no idea how to stop people continuing to tweet and retweet the competition, even though I publically closed entries earlier today!

In other news, I received a fantastic new review for The Atholl Expedition today from Nick Bramhall on his excellent outdoor blog, The Mountain’s Silhouette. You can read Nick’s very thorough and insightful review here.

What survives in the record: a Glen Coe hill day from 15 years ago today

Every now and again, I dip into my Lightroom library and journals, curious to see what I was doing 10, 15, or 20 years ago on this day. On the 6th of April, 2009, my brother James had just arrived in Glen Coe and was keen to experience these mountains

Some phone pictures from a sunny hill weekend (and a few thoughts on photo note-taking)

And now for something completely different. If you want to understand my approach to photos as a working outdoor writer then 35mm film (which I gush about on this blog all the time) is only a third of the story. Another third is my full-frame digital camera – no surprises there.

Maybe the web used to be better than it is now

I am spending less time on Instagram and more time in the old-fashioned blogosphere (via my RSS reader) once again, because I increasingly dislike what Instagram does to my brain. And I increasingly wonder if the internet was actually better and more diverse when more of us posted updates regularly
