Well, I’ve run the random number generator, and the lucky winners of the January giveaway are Tanja (“The First Five Pages”) and Em (“Slights”). Congratulations, and if you don’t get a confirmation email from me, do let me know! Commiseration to the losers, but there are plenty more books up for grabs!
Becoming a Writer by Dorothea Brande
This month’s “how to write” book is the inspirational classic by Dorothea Brande. With chapter titles such as “What Writers are Like”, “Harnessing the Unconscious” and “Writing on Schedule”, this slim but eloquent volume covers all the fundamental aspects of unleashing the writer within. Although written way back in 1934, the advice is just as relevant in the 21st century (well, apart from the bits about owning two typewriters!).
The Stormcaller (Book One of The Twilight Reign) by Tom Lloyd
“Isak is a white-eye, born bigger, more charismatic and more powerful than normal men…but with that power comes an unpredictable temper and an inner rage. Feared and despised by those around him, he dreams of a place in the army and a chance to live his own life, but the Gods have other plans for the intemperate teenager. Isak has been Chosen as heir elect to the brooding Lord Bahl, the white-eye Lord of the Farlan.”
Same rules as last month – UK/EU only, owing to postage. Leave a comment below, saying which book you’d like (or either, if so inclined!), before the first Saturday of March. Please use a valid email address in the comment form so I can contact you to get your snail-mail address if you win (don’t put either in your comments, for security reasons!).
