The sequel to Threads – Beads, Boys and Bangles – comes out in a month! One month! That’s no time at all.
So far, the lovely Rachel at Chicken House has sent me 2 copies to show me how gorgeous the cover is (it’s gorgeous, especially when you line it up beside book 1 – then it’s super-gorgeous) and I am going to give away one of those copies … that’s 50% of my total stock!!!! … to the winner of this competition.
The copy will, naturally, be signed to the winner. The other copy is already my husband’s. He always gets the first one. So that leaves me with, like zero copies for now, but that’s fine, because soon it will be ON THE SHELVES OF EVERY BOOKSHOP IN THE COUNTRY (I hope) and on Amazon (naturally) and I’ll be able to get my own. Plus I’ll get others, of course. Don’t worry about me. I’ll be fine. This is about you.
The deadline is 30 April, when I will pick a winner out of a hat. I’ll announce who it is on 1 May, which is two days before the official publication day of Beads, Boys and Bangles. Which is on 3 May. Don’t forget.
What you have to do is this:
- Write a comment on this blog, giving me your name and telling me three of your favourite books so far from 2009 and/or 2010. That’s a lot to choose from …
- Go to the threadsthebook website, check it out and email me from there – there’s a form in the back section. Just give me your name again, and mention this competition. It can be a short email. But that way, I’ll be able to email you back if you win and arrange practical stuff. Plus, you get to see my lovely, lovely website. Everyone’s a winner!
There are no right or wrong answers to part 1 (apart from your name, of course). I won’t be remotely judging your taste in literature, or at all offended if you don’t include Threads (let’s just assume you loved Threads). But I’m fascinated to know what’s good out there. I shall look, learn, go out and buy, based on your recommendations.
Thank you, everyone. I hope you enjoy this competition. OK, you have 30 days.
Ready … steady … go.
