So I’m having a little competition, and the prize is a free book! Because I’m being so incredibly, extravagantly generous I’ll ask you to bear with me while I tell you this little story:
I’m sure many of you already know that one of my hobbies is reviewing books, in fact I have a website dedicated to it. Because I do that, there are some publishers who give me free books in return for me reviewing them – the reviews aren’t required to be positive but as the saying goes, any publicity’s good publicity.
However due to the fact that the publishers are based in America there are occasionally difficulties in shipping the books over – they get lost while still in the States, halfway across the Atlantic, or stuck in some postal warehouse here in the UK. The publishers are great about this and will send a second copy if it gets lost.
Recently I accidentally received two copies of one book because the original copy hadn’t been lost, it was just delayed. I contacted the publishers, and they said I should just give the spare one to a worthy home.
Here’s where you come in.
The prize is A Conversation With God, by Alton Gansky, published by Thomas Nelson. And my review of it is over here.
As you may see, I wasn’t overawed by the book, but it’s certainly not the worst book I’ve ever read, and would make an interesting addition to a lot of people’s bookshelves.
If you’d like a copy, there are a bunch of ways you’re able to enter into the competition:
- if you know me personally, mention this post in a conversation
- leave a comment on this blog with a reason why I should give the book to you
- retweet or publicly share this post
- blog about this competition
The number of entries you get is equal to the number next to the action, so for example retweeting this blog post will earn you three entries.
I’ll keep entries open until the weekend so ACT NOW! The winner will be selected, and may be announced publicly. Or may not.
Tips on how to win
Flattery will get you everywhere.
I don’t anticipate many people entering so you’ll have a good chance of getting it if you ask.
The small print
All rules of this competition are owned and managed by me. I might change them at any time, at a moment’s notice, and that’s all fine. By ‘until the weekend’ I mean whatever I’m feeling like at the time that I close the competition – it could mean 5pm on Friday, or 9am next Monday. I’m not going to pay any P&P costs so only enter if you’re willing to meet me face-to-face or pay for it yourself.
