Hi everyone and a very happy Monday to you all. Today is the day when we pick the names of three hardworking blog readers from the hat (well, the random number generator) and make them very happy, with any luck.
Before we get to that, though - a Blog Tour update.
Saturday's post is about my most influential writers, and is on the Undercover Blog.
Sunday's post reveals the soundtrack of Shadows on the Moon and is at the lovely Emma's Book Angel's Booktopia.
Today's post will be on Writing From the Tub (I think it's going to be another sneak preview of the book - there might be a giveaway too).
And don't forget to check out Tuesday's at Sarah's Feeling Fictional.
In other news, the Shadows on the Moon ebook is now available for pre-order and it's only £2.49. That's nearly 500 pages for under three quid!
All right, onto the part which I know you're all really here for:
The first winner, who will receive the grand prize of an ARC of Shadows on the Moon, signed and personalised for them, a sparkly UK paperback of The Swan Kingdom, a gorgeous US hardcover of Daughter of the Flames, both also signed and personalised, and a one of a kind piece of artwork created by my own fair hand during the process of writing Shadows on the Moon is...
Which, given how many times Rebecca and her family entered, was probably inevitable. You really worked hard for this Rebecca - well done.
Now, the winner of the second prize, which is an ARC of Shadows on the Moon, a one of a kind piece of artwork from my Shadows on the Moon sketches, and a bag of swag, including signed bookplates, magnets and postcards is...
And again, I can't say I'm all that surprised, as I think Isabel entered nearly as many times as Rebecca. You were determined to win this one, Isabel, and you've never won anything from the blog before, which I know has been disappointing in the past. I'm really, really pleased for you. Congratulations!
Finally, the runner up, who will get a one of a kind piece of artwork and a bag of swag, including signed bookplates, magnets, postcards, fans, and anything else I have on hand, is...
*Heavenly chorus of angels*
Congratulations, Laura - I hope you'll be happy with your prize!
I'd like all the winners to get in touch with me via my email (zdmarriott at g mail dot com) as soon as possible to give me their postal addresses. I'm going to try to get all these prizes in the post by Friday of this week so that you get them pronto.
Congratulations again to all the winners. Commiserations to those of you who didn't win. I'm sure you're feeling a little depressed right now, but there will be other giveaways and maybe you'll be lucky another time.
See you all on Wednesday!
