Public Battles, Private Wars is one year old today and this small anniversary gives me an opportunity to show my gratitude to all those people who have read, talked about, shared and generally supported my novel. Thank you, it’s been an amazing journey and it’s thanks to you guys.
As authors, it’s easy to lose sight of why we do what we do when we are caught up in the creation of characters, stitching up plot holes and developing theme, and that’s all before we begin the sticky business of publicity and promotion. It is only when a book is out in the big wide reading world that we come out of our self-imposed solitude and make connections with the very people we do this for: that’s you, dear reader, yes, you. The story doesn’t belong to me, the writer, anymore, it belongs to you, to make of it what you will.
Accent Press and I want to show our gratitude and celebrate your involvement with a giveaway. There are two paperback copies of Public Battles, Private Wars up for grabs over at Goodreads, and I will send out one ebook and one signed paperback to readers who make a comment here on the blog before the end of play on the 31st. Please say if you would like an ebook or a paperback. Ginger2, my youngest son, will pull two names out of a hat – or sock, or beaker, or whatever we have handy – once I’ve written names on paper.
So that’s 3 paperbacks and one ebook available – two here, two at Goodsreads. You’ve got till the 31st March. Thank you and Good Luck!
