Win Some Books For Christmas!

To launch my new Blog (yes, this!) I’m running a competition!

Just leave a comment anywhere on the site (it doesn’t even have to be full of praise but, in the words of Big Brother’s Davina McCall, “please, do not swear!”) any time from now until midnight, UK-time on 15th December 2010 and you will be entered into my free prize draw to win a bundle of brand new books* about writing. It would be really useful for me to know how you found my site – but it’s not a compulsory part of your comment!

The competition is open to anyone but only one entry per person and please no ‘anonymous’ comments – you can’t win if I don’t know who you are!

The winner will be drawn at my Christmas party on 16th December by my ‘impartial’ friend Sue who a) doesn’t write and b) doesn’t drink! (aagh – poor Sue!)

If you’re in the UK, I’ll aim to have the books with you in time for Christmas but if you’re overseas, please bear with me as it will take a little longer.  

*The books are:  

**just published, this one is definitely on my Christmas list AND there’s another competition inside this book to win a literary lunch!

So, what are you waiting for…? I look forward to reading your comments!

    Good luck with the blog. You can never have enough writer’s blogs. Books too, actually.

    Ooooh how exciting! I blog about writing too. I found out about your blog through the WriteInvite advert. Please put my name in the draw. I’ve added a link to your blog on the sidebar of mine so I can pop over for a catch up on your posts from time to time.

  3. Hi,
    I found your blog through a WriteInvite email. I’m always up for reading more writing blogs…a wonderful displacement from actually doing any writing ho ho.

    Hmmm…free books? We-e-ll there’s no such thing as a free lunch…but if you really insist, it would be churlish of me to refuse.

  4. I’ve enjoyed visiting your blog. Very informative. I found it through the Write Invite website. Good Luck with your new blog.

    Hi Helen,
    Really enjoyed reading your blog, especially the info about magazine stories. I latched onto it via WriteInvite. Good luck with the new venture!

    I cast my covetous eyes upon the books. Anything to improve my skill and my motivation is always extremely welcome.
    I got an invitation to comment and take part in the comp from WriteInvite. So here I am.
    I will be adding this site to my list of favourites.

    Hiya!!! Good luck with the blog. I found out from WriteInvite. I’m an aussie in London studying musical theatre. I was a newspaper journo back home but currently just blogging occassionally on and also trying to get on with a travel novel in my spare time!

    Best wishes

    I am entering on behalf of my daughter who is an avid reader and budding writer. I found your link whilst looking for the results of a writing competition she entered in Edinburgh (Green Pencil award). Unfortunately she was not successful this time round but perhaps your free books might help her in next year’s competition!

    Very interesting site,but how about some information on how to understand Haiku!

    • Derek
      Sorry to hear you’re struggling with the Haiku! They can be a bit tricky. but maybe you could write one about Rugby…?!
      Thanks for looking at the blog. You are now, of course, in the draw for the books!
