Witch's Boy big giveaway (with caveat)
I really meant to have some sort of launch event for this, and then it turned out to be the week of the Livejournal DDOS attacks. Most of the people who comment on my posts do so on Livejournal, so I felt that doing anything while it was down was not a good time.
Then, when it started working again, I had mostly forgotten I ever intended to do anything. I really need to get a tweed jacket and a pipe because all my life I’ve been the model of an absent-minded professor. (Actually I was asked to do post-graduate work in Philosophy when I was at university, and I often think that saying “I’d rather do some research into the cult of the horse in early Anglo-Saxon England” was the wrong decision. I should have stayed in academia, pondering the meaning of the universe. I’m certainly temperamentally suited to the job.)
For example, just take the way that I’ve gone completely off the point there.
Dragging myself back to the point with some effort – I was meaning to have some kind of event to celebrate the relaunch of The Witch’s Boy. However, now that a fortnight has already passed, it seems a bit late. So what I’m going to do instead is give away a copy to the first ten people who ask for one.
However, there is a slight catch. As you can see from the page for the Kindle version of the book, it has no reviews at all. So, because there’s no such thing as a free lunch, I would ask that anyone who receives a copy review it on Amazon afterwards, please. It doesn’t have to be a long or complicated review – I’d be happy with a single sentence. It doesn’t have to be a good review – if you hated it, go ahead and say so. But if you could just put up a short summary of what you honestly thought of it, that would be excellent.
So, if you’d like a free copy and you’re willing to write a brief review afterwards and put it up on Amazon, just give me your name and I’ll send you a copy in an e-format of your choice 🙂
