Here's the motivator:
Defaced by my doodles on the dedication page, signed on the author page & annotated with quotes from all three books of the Broken Empire trilogy! A collector's dream. A free book!
All you have to do to win is enter the draw. All you have to do to enter the draw is send a photo of you holding my book to be posted on the 'entries page'. But wait! There's bonuses...
i) picture of you holding my book = 1 entry into draw
ii) picture of you holding both my books = 2 entries into draw
iii) an interesting location or amusing shot wins 1 to 5 possible additional entries depending on how interesting/funny.
All entries go into a black bag. A winner is drawn. Simples.
Send entry photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
Competition is over. We have a winner! The debt clock selected #47 which is Will (in his tree stump) - congratulations.
Very many thanks to all entrants. As on previous occasions you've exceeded my expectations, and then some.
