US book giveaway: signed copies of The Alchemist of Souls

My patient North American fans will be glad to know I’m planning a US/Canada book giveaway this month!

3 personalised signed copies will be up for grabs – note that these will be the (slightly larger) UK edition, not the US mass market paperback.

All you have to do to be in with a chance is to leave a comment on this post. If you win, you will receive a brand new copy of the UK paperback edition of The Alchemist of Souls, signed by yours truly!

Please note that comments are moderated to reduce spam, so don’t panic if yours doesn’t appear right away.

Rules:

  1. You must live in the US or Canada to enter (sorry – worldwide postage gets expensive)
  2. One comment per entrant, please – multiple commenters will be disqualified.
  3. For security reasons, please don’t leave contact details in your comment – there’s a space in the comment form for your email address, I’ll use that to get hold of you.
  4. Closing date for entries is noon PST time on Tuesday 14th August. Any comments posted after that deadline will be deleted.
  5. I will be picking three separate winners (using a random number generator), to receive one copy of the book each.
  6. Selected winners must respond to the confirmation email by Sunday 26th August, so that I can pack the books and bring them with me to Chicago (saves on postage :) )
  7. If a winner does not respond by the stated deadline or cannot supply a US or Canadian postal address, I reserve the right to select a replacement.

Good luck!

I’d love to get a signed copy, and can’t wait for book 2 to come out in December. Hope it’s still going to come out in December!

That’s certainly the plan – I’m just waiting for copy-edits, then it goes off to the printer!

A good friend of mine in the UK told me your books were awesome and I should enter the give away contest! :D Even if I don’t win I will be looking for a copy when I can buy one. :3

I have this one on my Kindle and loved it; having a signed copy to shamelessly gaze at Mal to read would be perfection!

He is very drool-worthy heroic ;)

You’re coming to Chicago?! How’d I miss that? If I win I may be able to save you some shipping costs by driving down and picking it up from you. :D And congrats on publishing overseas.

I’m going to be attending WorldCon, along with a bunch of my buddies from Angry Robot Books :)

And thanks – one of the reasons I love AR is that they publish in the US and UK almost simultaneously (allowing for differences in distributors’ schedules), so my readers don’t have to wait…

From one Anne to another, I love your cover! Oh, how I’d love to go to the WorldCon this year….

I read the electronic version and would love to have a signed copy! I plan to attend Worldcon myself, so I, too, could save you the postage if I win. :)

Hi Anne:
I have been looking for good reads outside the genre that I write in. I saw the news about ‘The Merchant of Dreams’ on Holly’s boards. Congratulations on your success. Although I am just finding your work, reading from a signed copy ‘The Alchemist of Souls’ would be a great way to discover your work.

This looks like an interesting read. I like the cover. Will it be different for the US version? Thanks for the giveaway!

avatar
Anne

Only difference as far as I know is the size and (I think) the finish on the cover – I haven’t seen the US edition, though, so I can’t say for sure!

(The UK edition has a semi-matt cover with a glossy finish on the title lettering)
