11 Days Without a Book! Countdown to Publication #5: A Monster Munch vs Doctor Who Christmas Cake Duel!

15 Days Without a Head will be in bookshops in 11 days time. By way of celebration, I will be publishing a new post here every day, leading up to publication on January 5th. The idea is to provide a few bonus items, such as you'd expect to find on the extras disc of a DVD – except these will be available before the main feature of course! 

But today is Christmas! So there will be no more talk of books … only cake! 

Last year, our Christmas cake was an homage to the wonderful Calvin and Hobbes. This time, in keeping with the countdown to publication of 15 Days, we made a Monster Munch cake. You'll have to read the book to find out why!

Monsters (l to r) Roast Beef, Pickled Onion and Smokey Bacon

A new festive flavour – Marzipan Monster Munch!

Monster Munch and chips – Jay's ideal Christmas cake topping!

Tasty …

And then we made a Doctor Who one … because, well … it is Christmas.

Cybermen, Daleks and The Doctor put aside their differences for a festive snowball fight!
Geroni…snow !!! (sorry)

As Christmas is a time for giving gifts, don't forget I'm giving away a signed (or unsigned, if you prefer) copy of 15 Days Without a Head. Click here for details.
