Yeah, so it isn’t the Nobel prize, but I’m chuffed to bits! Plus I got a sweet shiny cup next to my name on the sub.
So, to celebrate I’m doing a giveaway!
What am I giving away?
An Audible audiobook! Any audible audiobook, the choice is up to the winner. You could get Brandon Sanderson’s recently released Firefight, or the great audiobook of The Stand (my review), or any other one you want. To be able to do this, I will of course be paying for it myself.
How to Enter?
Easy peasy. Just comment on the post saying that you’d like to enter, along with your email id.
How will the winner be decided?
I’ll be doing a random draw. One entry per email, all entries get equal weight. I’ll email the the winner, and they’ll have one day to respond. If they fail to do that, I’ll draw another one, and so on.
How long will the giveaway run?
One week. I’ll announce the winner next wednesday.
That’s it! So go ahead and enter!
