    Ordered my ‘ordinary’ copy today, great news due down under 27th March, but would keep my ‘doodled copy’ behind glass so as not to be touched by ordinary people πŸ™‚

    Hey, Agnes. Mine is up and ready on – If I won, on a blank page perhaps – Nona has to fall in love sometime in the trilogy (doesn’t she?) – I would like her thoughts about this person and the potential lack of returning from battle emotions written down to a boy (or girl) she cared about in old school letter format before she knew she had to do some kick ass damage after walking the path! πŸ™‚ Although I have read it, I have entered about six of these competitions because I really want to win one….. πŸ™‚

  43. March 29, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    That is a pretty cool idea to get the cover spread around! Happy to join as I was lucky enough to get an arc and it is already one of my favorite fantasy books.

    I ordered the special numbered edition, but of I win this, I can get the US cover too, which I prefer for once! πŸ˜€

    Did you know that giraffes get struck by lightning more often than other animals? I’m guessing it’s because their coloring angers the lightning gods. You should pick me because I’m smarts, and I super love your bookz.

    This is great PR Mark! So many people will recognize your cover in the wild and not even know we have all been subliminally programmed. Changed my Twitter banner to Red Sister! Woot!
