Hello - Happy Tuesday, my lovelies.

Today it's time to set up a new giveaway to replace the one I've decided to withdraw. Don't worry! If you already voted/commented on the last post, your entry will still be counted. But the new giveaway has new entry rules, and you can enter again if you want.

The prizes are also slightly different, so pay attention now!


A pre-order of the UK paperback of FrostFire sent directly from the Book Depository to you the moment the book is available (alternately, you might get one of my finished author copies, depending on which would reach you quicker).

A rare signed and personalised Advanced Readers Copy of the U.S. version of Shadows on the Moon, with the all-new versions of the haiku which I wrote especially to be more faithful to a Japanese aesthetic.

An extremely pretty signed and personalised U.S. hardcover of Daughter of the Flames (according to Amazon and the Book Depo these are no longer available from Candlewick Press, so you probably want to get your hands on this while you can).

FrostFire swag - full-colour postcards and magnets - and assorted Shadows on the Moon swag.

A special, super-secret, mysterious surprise.


Signed and personalised bookplates.

FrostFire and Shadows on the Moon swag.

That same special surprise. No, I'm not telling. Because it wouldn't be a surprise then, would it?!

What do you need to do to enter this new Just Because April Giveaway? Simplez! You spread the word about this giveaway so that as many people as possible will have a chance to win the goodies.

Tweet it. Facebook it. Put a link on your blog. Share it in whatever way you like (with the proviso that you do not hop onto other people's comment trails and post the details there, since that makes them feel like they are being spammed - and that's not what we want!).

When you've shared the contest's details, come back here and comment, including a link to the place where you have shared. You can share as many times as you like, but make sure you put each link in a separate comment (and obviously don't Tweet or FB the same thing over and over - again, that's spamming).

REMEMBER: One link per comment. Only comment if you are entering. No chitchat in the comments - this trail is just for the giveaway. Do not mess with the Random-Number-Generator-no-Jutsu.

Repeat after me:



Get it? Got it? Good.

Now, I know that my giveaways are normally all international. I do this because I want to always include my readers in other countries and let them know how much I appreciate them. I really do love you guys! But money's a bit tight for me right now. I just can't afford to send a big parcel by airmail. So while everyone is free to enter this giveaway, I'm afraid that I can only offer the grand prize to entrants who have a UK postal address. But the runners up prizes are open to everyone, which I hope makes it a little better. I'm hoping to be able to afford to do another big international giveaway later this year, too.

Since this has delayed everything a bit, I've picked a new closing date for the giveaway: April 25th, which gives you two weeks to enter. I'll pick the winners after midnight on the 25th and post their details on Thursday 26th.

I hope this is all clear and tickety-boo. If you've any questions, skip back to yesterday's post and pop them in the comment trail there. And that's all!

Well these are the best kinds of giveaways! :) Anyway, I tweeted here: https://twitter.com/#!/cc9309/status/192204034755665920

Congrats on scoring deals out of the UK (namely with Shadows on the Moon - such a devastatingly beautiful story)!

I'm so so SO happy! The fact that it's for UK only makes it more likely for me to win -- though I know it sucks for you non-UKians, but I'm just really happy :)
