Webrid's Unlikely Heroes Giveaway!

Milo James Fowler kindly invited me to join a series of giveaways he's linking to from his blog, In Medias Res. Hop on over to see the other great authors raffling off books each Friday in December!

I thought it would be fun to offer both of the Webrid books (that is, one reader gets both Green Light Delivery  and Blue Diamond Delivery) in any ebook form preferred by the winner. The Giveaway is up and running, and the winner will be chosen on Friday, December 20. The theme of my giveaway is Unlikely Heroes.

Webrid never wanted to be the star of adventures, or risk his life, or get off his couch for that matter. Yet, time and again, fate swoops in and forces poor Webrid to fight the good fight.

Do you love unlikely heroes in literature? Who are your favorites? Please share them with us in the comments, and also enter the giveaway here:

Good luck!


  1. I adore the heroes in this series! Waiting with bated breath for Red Spawn Delivery! :)

  2. Unlikely heroes are great, which is why I keep writing them. I still have a massive soft spot for the hero of Diana Wynne Jones' 'Dogsbody'.

  3. Holden Caufield and Peter Lake (from a Mark Helprin novel) are my favourite unlikely heroes. I, too, root for the underdogs.

  4. Bilbo Baggins -- definitely an unlikely hero. Just finished reading THE HOBBIT for the 9th year in a row with my 8th graders. Never get tired of it. Thanks for joining the #Tismoreblessed throng, Anne!

  5. Katniss of Hunger Games fame is a cool underdog to root for, as was Frodo in LOTR.
