Troubadour giveaway

The paperback edition of my historical novel Troubadour comes out in the UK tomorrow with this rather gorgeous image on the jacket.

Bloomsbury are kindly offering ten free copies, which I shall sign, to the first ten people to comment on this blog. UK only I'm afraid and you do have to be a Follower.

If you don't score one, or even if you do, you can get a rather fine poster of the jacket, with all the Stravaganzas on the other side from susannah.nuckey@bloomsbury.com

Never one to turn down a freebie :)

Interesting blog yesterday btw - got me thinking about the books that have made a difference my life over the years, and wondering what I would have been without them. When time allows may well blog on it..

By the way, I am a follower, using my twitter account (my name is Ami Cattrall)

Marjorie said...

Ooh, free books. One of my favourite things!

And I've only read Troubadour from the library, so far, too! - I didn't know anything at all about the CAthars before, so found it very interesting.

Love that cover!

Sue Purkiss said...

It's a great cover, and I would love a copy! Interesting post yesterday, about book groups in prisons. I used to use books with young offenders - it must be a good deal to do with empathy, which reading promotes and offenders generally lack to some degree or another.

Zoë said...

Please can I have a copy? Love the Stravaganza series!

I am a follower! @caroliond The cover is spectacular :)

maryom said...

Ooh, never say 'no' to a free book. Love the cover. Think it's better than the hardback.

Ellen Renner said...

Oh, I would love one. Hope I've made it in time! I think it's a great marketing device, btw.

There's one left! Or two if madwippit isn't in the UK. Tell me madwippit.

And Sue, I'm glad you found yesterday's interesting. As I understand it the groups are not in prison but are instead of a prison sentence, which is what makes it even more remarkable.

That is a lovely cover. I'd love one if there's still one left.

Happy Squirrel said...

Oops, that happy--squirrel comment was from me, I keep signing in with the wrong thing today.

Sophie said...

That cover is brilliant! I hope I'm not too late here but is there one left?

Katherine Roberts said...

Don't need a book, since have already read it! But I just wanted to say if you win you're in for a treat, and that's a MUCH nicer cover than the hardback US one...

Dianne Hofmeyr said...

I'm too late Mary but oh what I'd give to have a fiery bosom!!! Brilliant cover!

boulderific said...

Email sent! I look forward to recieving my book! :D

Marjorie said...

Me too!
Thank you so much.

boulderific said...

I had to send a second email with my address from a different email account because the first one I used has been acting up and not sending some emails. So if you have two from me, that's why!

Mary Hoffman's Newsletter said...

Thanks, boulderific. They both arrived!

I'll be signing the books on Thursday so they should go out next week.

Caroline said...

This is exciting stuff! Yay :)Thanks!
