Justin Thyme Competition and Giveaway!

Today I am really pleased to bring you my blog entry in the Justin Thyme competition.

Full details can be found in this blog post but here, for your reading pleasure, is what this is all about!

To celebrate the publication of "Justin Thyme" in paperback, there will be a special competition open to ALL blog-readers. The competition will open on September 1st (publication day), running for one week - and many regular book-bloggers will be participating by hosting clues (LETTERS and NUMBERS). To win, simply find all the letters by visiting each of the participating blogs in turn (links will be posted at the Tartan of Thyme blog) and then rearrange them in numerical order!

First prize will be special hardback copies of both "Justin Thyme" and forthcoming sequel "Thyme Running Out". Each book will include original colour artwork added to the title page, along with a hand-written quote from the book and, of course, the customary author's signature.

Further prizes (of signed limited edition JT bookmarks) will also be available at this blog and at other participating book-blogs throughout the week.

NOW, I have my grubby paws on two of these limited edition bookmarks (one for me to keep and, excitingly, one to give away to my blog readers). Can I just say that they are GORGEOUS! In all honesty, I'm wishing that I could keep both of them and boo ya to the rest of you!

Here is my picture of the two bookmarks, with letters and numbers showing clearly so that you can note them down for the main competition:

Aren't they glorious?

To get your hands on one of these, just drop an email to magemanda AT gmail DOT com with the subject line "THYME". Give me your postal address so that I can ship out the prize as soon as the competition closes. This will be on 7th September. I am happy to open this internationally!

Good luck! And happy hunting with all the numbers and letters for the main Justin Thyme prize!
