‘A Wartime Secret’ – Paperback Giveaway

Update: The winner of my book + chocolate (drawn this morning by random wheel name spinner thing) is Derek B. Well done, Derek. I have emailed him for his details. Thanks everyone for entering. I may have more giveaways coming up over the next few weeks.

Hello, here I am, better late than never, with my paperback giveaway!

Whee! Yes, today is the paperback launch of my novel ‘A Wartime Secret’ (I’ll shut up about it soon, I promise) and it’s also out on audio today too.

I would love to say that I’ve been swanning about today, signing copies in bookshops (!), drinking champagne and generally ‘living the dream’ but I have not.

I’ve been on a muddy dog walk on my own (with the dog, obvs!), have tried to write more of novel#2 (deadline was tomorrow but I’ve got a week’s extension) and stressed (a lot) about my elderly mother.

I’ve deleted that paragraph twice because I sound like a right Moaning Minnie but in the end I decided to leave it in because that’s the reality of getting published (at the start of one’s novel-writing career, at least!) 🙂

But anyway…..

If you’d like to win a signed copy of the book and a lovely bar of chocolate (someone on Twitter has already ‘admitted’ that they’re entering for the chocolate really. Erm, thanks..?!) just leave a comment below and you’ll be included in the draw.

I will pick the winner at random on Saturday morning at 10am. UK only sorry.

I’m running the same competition (there are 2 books and 2 bars of chocolate) over on Twitter, so feel free to enter that too, if you so wish!
