It’s time for me to give away some more crime fiction by Australian authors. This month I’m offering pre-loved (but fully functional) copies of
P D Martin’s Body Count. It’s the first in a series of 4 books featuring transplanted Aussie Sophie Anderson who works for the FBI as a profiler. Sophie is an interesting character, not least because she has some psychic abilities. I read the book before I started keeping review notes but I did rate it a 4.
Update 4 Oct: Thanks to the generous Ms Martin I have an extra copy of Body Count to give away (and a couple of her other books too which will feature in coming months).
Brian Kavanagh’s The Embroidered Corpse. It’s set in present day England but has a historical theme and is quite charming (click on the link for my review).
Rules of entry
1. To be in the running leave a comment below containing:
- your favourite thing to spread on toast/bread (we Aussies are known for our vegemite which is undergoing something of a revamp and marketing mess-up as I write)
- which book you’d like to win (it’s fine to say both)
- your email address (de-spam bot identifiable like this bsquaredinoz [at] gmail [dot] com is fine)
2. Everyone who manages to follow rule number one will have their name slotted onto spinning wheel of death which will be spun to select a random winner on the evening of 10 October 2009 (local time which is GMT +9.5) (you’ll know you’re too late to enter by the presence of a WINNERS ANNOUNCED comment below). There will be two separate draws in September and you may enter either or both. You may even win both.
3. The favourite spread thing has nothing to do with the outcome (I promise I’ll still include you in the draw even if you declare a life-long hatred of Vegemite).
4. I will contact the winner(s) via email to ask for a snail mail address to which I can send the book(s). I will happily post the book(s) to whatever far away part of the globe you inhabit BUT I will only use surface mail for those outside Australia. This is slow (takes up to 12 weeks) but cheap. As am I
***Please be careful typing your email address as one of last month’s winners doesn’t seem to be at their address so I’ve got a prize with no home***
