Two competitions for book lovers:

1. Win either 1 hardcover or 2 paperbacks equal to $20 from the Book Depository: See here for the competition.

2. Six people will win one book, one of those winners will get a $15 TBD giftcard! See here for details.


Both competitions are international (though in the second, international winner pays shipping) and I have nothing to do with either, so please use the links to enter!


The Gentleman Bastard Competition WINNERS!

To re-cap, I am giving away two copies of The Lies of Locke Lamora, and two copies of Red Seas Under Red Skies – the first two books in Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastard Sequence – in preparation of his third book coming out in October.

The winners can choose whether they receive the book in paperback or eVersion, but they’re only receiving the first book straight away! Once they’ve read it, I’ll send along the second book. This is a little push to hope they get them read before the third book is out 🙂


But enough about that – onto the winners! I will be contacting them asap, but if you are the lucky winners and haven’t heard of me, check your spam box and/or email me to my username @ in order to sort out which address you’d like them sent to, and whether you prefer paperback or electronic.

I should drag this out a little more, shouldn’t I?

No? Righto – the winners!



Thank you everyone for entering. I’ll probably run another, perhaps for the third book alone, closer to October.

The Gentleman Bastards competition!

Scott Lynch is easily my favourite author. His series, The Gentleman Bastards, is the one I fling at others the most to read and nearly everyone who’s had the book pitched at their heads has loved it.

Now that the third book has a release date, it’s time for me to do another giveaway!

I will be giving away two copies each of ‘The Lies of Locke Lamora’, and ‘Red Seas Under Red Skies’ – the first two books in the series. The winner can choose whether they would like the paperback version, kindle version, or any other electronic version that has the same easy ‘gift this ebook via email’ option.

To make it a bit different though – the winner will only receive ‘The Lies of Locke Lamora’ to begin with. Whenever they have finished it (hopefully sometime this year!) I’ll then send through ‘Red Seas Under Red Skies’. Basically just to be a little push to edge this series up your reading pile, as we only have six months until the third is out!

Anyone in the world can enter my competition (if the winner chooses paperback, I’ll happily send them anywhere). All you have to do to enter is comment below stating why you’d love to win 🙂

Winners will be picked at random, only then will I contact requesting postage or email details.

Competition ends 29th of March (Australian time!), and the winners will be announced on the 30th March, 2013.

Scott Lynch’s 3rd book, ‘The Republic of Thieves’ will be released on October 10, 2013 in the UK and Commonwealth and October 8, 2013 in the US!
