One year to the day and a giveaway


Today is exactly one year since the reissue, in a new edition, of my novel The Birth Machine, and I'm celebrating with a giveaway of 5 signed copies of the book, plus two each of my other two Salt titles, the novel Too Many Magpies and the story collection, Balancing on the Edge of the World. If you'd like one, just leave your name in the comments below, saying which book or books you'd like to be put in the draw for. Deadline Saturday.

The Birth Machine. 'A damn good read. It’s a cliché to say this is a must-read, but still, I’m going to urge you all to read it. And I’m talking to you, too, boys.' - Valerie O'Riordan, Bookmunch -








Too Many Magpies. 'An appealing, bewitching read, one that feels slightly dangerous and a little bit thrilling.' - Kimbofo, Reading Matters blog
  
 







Balancing on the Edge of the Word. 'Quite swept me off my feet.' - Dovegreyreader

I'd like to be entered for The Birth Machine draw. I loved Balancing on the Edge of the World *crosses fingers* :)

Elizabeth Baines said...

Will do, Carys.

Oh thanks Elizabeth, I would like to be in the draw for either Balancing on the Edge of the World or the Birth Machine or both. Your Too Many Magpies was fantastic and remains one of my favourite books.

Elizabeth Baines said...

Consider it done, Alison, and thanks for that!

Claire King said...

I would love to be in the draw for the birth machine (my mum loved it!) or Too Many Magpies please!
Thanks!

Elizabeth Baines said...

Okey-doke, Claire!

Diane Becker said...

Congratulations :) I loved Too Many Magpies, would like to in the draw for either Balancing on the Edge of the World or The Birth Machine x

Julia Bohanna said...

I already have The Birth Machine so the possibility of Too Many Magpies please!

Elizabeth Baines said...

Done for both!

Sue Guiney said...

I've got them all already, so I don't need to be entered into the draw. I just popped by to say happy Book-day! I can't believe it's already been a year since the reissue. Yikes.

Elizabeth Baines said...

Thanks, Sue. Yes, it's ridiculous how quickly time flies!

Neil Fulwood said...

Could you please enter me in the draw for any of these titles?

Many thanks!

Kathleen Jones said...

Too many magpies please, because I love dangerous and a little bit thrilling, and - although declaring that I'm Absolutely Not - am superstitious enough to repeat the little rhyme every time I see a magpie!

Dan Holloway said...

I'd love to be entered for Balancing on the Edge of the World, please :)

Elizabeth Baines said...

All duly entered!

Claire Massey said...

I'd like to be entered for The Birth Machine and/or Too Many Magpies, please. Thank you!

Elizabeth Baines said...

Sure thing, Claire.

Samantha said...

I'd like to be entered in the draw; like to read either please if I'm lucky.

Elizabeth Baines said...

Done, Samantha.

Kathryn said...

Hi Elizabeth. I would love to be entered into the draw for "The Birth Machine". Thank you.

Elizabeth Baines said...

Done, Kathryn.

I happened to see your site by accident. I live in the U.S. so I checked Amazon for 'The Birth Machine" but they don't have it. Your book sounds so intriguing. I put it on wishlist in case they stock it later.

Elizabeth Baines said...

Carol, thank you so much for doing that. The Birth Machine IS available on Amazon.co.uk, but of course it's always more expensive to order it from abroad. Or it can be ordered from The Book Depository. http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/book/9781907773020/The-Birth-Machine?selectCurrency=USD
Would you like me to enter you for the draw?

Jo said...

Congratulations, Elizabeth! Please enter me for The Birth Machine, as I already have copies of the other two books.

Alan Beard said...

I'd like to be entered for The Birth Machine or Too Many Magpies. I liked Balancing.. a lot.
Alan

Elizabeth Baines said...

Thanks, both. Your names are entered.

Wrath Of God Herself said...

i've not read any of your fiction (i'm sorry, how have i missed it?) but would welcome a chance to catch up with any of your collections in order to rectify my omission

Elizabeth Baines said...

I'll put you in for all three, Susie.

Caroline M Davies said...

Gosh is it really a year since the re-issue of Birth Machine. I have two - the original and the re-issue but please could I be entered into the draw for Balancing on the edge of the world

Elizabeth Baines said...

Yes, I can't believe it's a year, either, Caroline. I've put you in for Balancing.
