2ND MEGA EXCLUSIVE THE NIGHT ITSELF GIVEAWAY

Hello, my duckies! Welcome to Thursday and the second Mega Exclusive The Night Itself Giveaway! Wwwwooooooooooooooooooot!

Ahem.

So, just like last time, this is the run down of what is on offer to the single lucky winner:





These prizes are all completely exclusive to this giveaway. There's no way to own any of these things other than to win them from us. The posters and notebooks? I had them specially made for this - there are four of each in existence. One will stay with me, and the others are for you. The advanced reader's copies of this book are being so tightly controlled that I only own one myself. Lovely Lass has possession of the rest and will be sending yours out to you straight from Walker Books in London. That's how exclusive they are.

So! What can you do THIS time to get the chance to win all this?

I want you to spread the word, Dear Readers. I want you to spread the word about this book and this giveaway. Draw your friends and families and online acquaintances into our little fandom's happiness over the fact that The Night Itself is coming out on the 4th of July this year. Create a buzz. Get as many people as possible interested. As a bonus, this means you will hopefully have more people to talk to about this, which as a massive fangirl myself I know is fun!

Share the giveaway on Facebook and tell everyone why you think you ought to win these prizes. Share it on Twitter under the hashtag #TheNightItself and explain why you want to read this book. If you've added the book on Goodreads, put a comment in there about how you can't wait for it to come out. Start a Goodreads thread about why you're excited for The Night Itself to finally be released, or if you see that there's already one open, join in and comment about what you think might happen in the story. Talk about it on your blog, make a YouTube video, make a playlist on 8tracks or squee on Tumblr. Just be honest about your feelings! ANYTHING you want to do to share the excitement about The Name of the Blade: The Night Itself will count as an entry. All you have to go is comment here with a link.  

There is no limit on the amount of entries you can submit. But make sure that you put each link in a separate comment so that all your entries will be counted separately.

*WARNING* As always, you must be sensible. Spamming does not create a buzz, so don't try to put links in the comment trails on other people's blogs. They feel like they're being spammed, I feel like hiding in a dark hole, and anyone who hangs out there will be annoyed, not excited. Don't do it. I won't count those as entries, so it's pointless anyway! *END WARNING*

This giveaway is open to anyone in the UK or Europe (sorry non-Euro Dear Readers! My hands are tied on this one) and the winner will be picked when I feel like I've had a sufficient amount of entries, because I really want to get the word out there. If we get lots and lots of entries and buzz right away, I'll probably pick a winner next week, but if entries are a bit thin on the ground I'll leave the competition open longer.

I know how excited I am about the date when I can share this book with you getting closer, Dear Readers. Now show me how excited YOU are. Go forth and buzz!

I shared the link with my friends on facebook - The Night Itself comes out the day before my birthday, so you can guess what's on the wish-list :)

I also did a review of The Swan Kingdom and why I've loved your books since I found The Swan Kingdom (the only copy on a crammed shelf in the shop facing the wrong way) on the Waterstone's website. It won't be published for something like 72 hours, but it went like this:

'I stumbled upon The Swan Kingdom by accident a few years ago and I am so glad I did because it led me to Zoe Marriott and her subsequent novels Daughter of the Flames and Shadows on the Moon. She is a brilliant author for anyone who loves magic, illusions and characters who are stronger with their weaknesses than without them. I can’t wait for her next book (The Night Itself) to come out in July this year.'

Thank you so much for inspiring me to write and for being what led me to study Creative Writing and English at university. Your blog has been so helpful for the Fictional Writing module I did this year!

Kimberley: I was trying not to comment in this thread, since it makes it easier to use a random no. generator to pick a winner, but I just wanted to say how moved I was by your comment, and wish you the very best of luck with your studies at uni :) Thank you.

I drew a picture based on Japanese dragons and The Night Itself :) And water-coloured it then posted it on facebook https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=182917271859784&set=a.150339981784180.35550.100004245360653&type=1

Got immersed in learning about Japanese culture and had a go at drawing my own version of the girl on the front cover of The Night Itself. Posted on facebook to share with my friends :)

Still not that great at people, but I try :P

Tried a watercolour of London with some details from the cover of The Night Itself. Don't know how well it turned out, but...

I did another arty thing with a quote from the teaser you posted. Dunno if it's any better, though.
