Who thought this day would come?
When I started this blog a year ago, it was mainly to give myself something to do while submitting my first novel to literary agents. There’s been some progress on that front, and while I still haven’t got an agent or publishing deal, I believe my book is better now than it was a year ago. In fact, I have a few more edits to make after receiving encouraging feedback from my reader in the Romantic Novelists’ Association (thank you, whoever you are) and then it’ll be back to submissions.
I told myself that I’d host a giveaway when I’d been blogging a year (this seemed unlikely last April) or had 500 followers (which seemed unthinkable). However, the stars have aligned and I’ve hit both milestones at the same time!
Thank you so much to all of you lovely people for following my ramblings and baking adventures. I put a lot of thought into what the greatest number of you might like to win for yourself or to pass on to someone else, and this is what I came up with… *insert drumroll*
I’m giving away one paperback copy of The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow and one paperback copy of The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth, both by Katherine Woodfine. If you haven’t seen my ramblings about these books before, these are fun mysteries, in the vein of Nancy Drew or Miss Marple, set in Edwardian London.
Obviously the above photo shows my copies and the giveaway is for new even shinier copies which will be shipped directly to the winner from The Book Depository. By using direct shipping I can open the giveaway internationally: you can all enter, so get going!
The giveaway will run until next Monday, 2nd May at midnight (GMT, London local time) and I’ll announce the winner here next week 🙂
Thank you all again for following my blog and good luck!
