A few weeks ago I ran my first ever competition to promote Planetfall: All Fall Down. I put up two signed copies of the book.
Not to be falsely humble, but as a self published author with no commercial backing or significant public profile , I knew that there was a risk no one would enter.
I am, therefore, hugely pleased to say that I had four entries to the competition to win the two books. And because I was so relieved, and because the number of entries was just a couple more than the number of books available, I’ve decided to award all entrants with a signed copy.
So congratulations to:
- Martin in Neath
- Paul in Huddersfield
- Carolyn in Leicester, and
- Holly in Chingford.
They’ve all won a signed copy of the paperback, which *cough cough* is available from Lulu through my store with a 15% discount for the next few weeks. Well done to all of them.
The correct answers to the quiz questions were:
1. All Fall Down is set on a desert planet, where there are important minerals in the sand. Which famous science fiction book (and later film) was set on a desert planet devoid of water and full of giant worms? – DUNE by FRANK HERBERT
2. All Fall Down is available in paperback and as an e-book. Which platform/website is each available from? (Hint: check my Store.) – KINDLE and LULU.COM
3. The final question is actually just a question from you: what was your book of 2012? I’ll collate the competition entries and produce a list of favourite books from you all. There’s no right or wrong answer, I’m just looking to share reading tips!
The books recommended by our lucky winners are:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Walking Home by Simon Armitage
Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson, and
Will We Ever Speak Dolphin? by Mick O’Hare
I hope the winners enjoy the book!
