I've been sent a bunch of the Road Brothers paperbacks! And I still have a few Red Sister paperbacks left. So it's competition time. I'll send signed copies (or possibly other of my books if I have them) to the winners (anywhere in the world).
There will be one winner per ten entries up to a maximum of 4 books.
Winners will be chosen randomly but you get more chances to be chosen if your entry ticks more of the boxes.
To enter send me a photo of you in a road (the pavement/sidewalk is fine - don't get run over!). Where you live would be good, but any road will do. And let's see some of the street, not just your face and a rooftop. (This gives one chance).
For an extra chance include one or more brothers in the photo. I'm not going to check your genealogical records. If these are guys you consider to be your Road Brothers that's fine.
For an extra chance include one or more sisters in the photo. Same deal as with the brothers.
For a final extra chance have all those in the photo wearing red (like a red top, scarf, or hat, not socks or underwear!).
So each entry (one per person) has between 1 and 4 chances of winning.
Send me your photo at firstname.lastname@example.org
(selected by random.org using the points to weight chances)
Many thanks for all the great entries. It was great to see you guys all over the world.
I always feel bad for the people who didn't win :/ But using random.org absolves me of guilt. Hooray!
