(We had 47 donations across my various platforms and the random winner is Kenneth Bragg)
Simon MacHale had this "going spare" - he describes this as "reading copy" and "not perfect", but to my non-collector's eye it looks pretty much unblemished. Simon very generously sent it to me to find a new home for it.
It's the UK edition and signed in 2011 at a time when my signature was a lot further from a flat line than it is now.
Since it has a certain ££/$$ value and rarity I had a bit of a think about how to find a new owner.
I've collected a fair bit of money for Charlton Farm Hospice over the years but not recently. So I want to remedy that. Charlton Farm provide respite care and end of life care for severely disable children, and I've spent months there with my daughter Celyn having a great time. When Celyn was in hospital this January with septicemia and I stayed with her for the 9 day stay, Charlton Farm sent carers to give me a break.
So - to enter the random draw for this book all you have to do is comment here or on my social media and let me know that you've made a donation to Charlton Farm Hospice. It can be any amount, £1 is fine. And all you get for making a bigger donation is a bigger warm glow from knowing you've done a good thing. Everyone has the same chance of winning. And I'm going to trust everyone - because honestly, would any of my readers lie about doing it? Who wants that karma?
If you're commenting on this page remember comments need to be approved - so don't panic if it doesn't show for a day.
I'll make the draw for the winner on Friday night (19th of March).
