I knew her before she was famous – a giveaway

15 10 2009

My ever-so-clever friend Cally has written a book. Today is the official publication date of her debut novel but as a good dutiful friend I had pre-ordered my copy from Amazon months ago and it turned up yesterday morning. I was hooked by page 27!

“ohh, that is a pretty cover,” I hear you cry “what is it all about?”

‘What would I do without you, Lucy Brown?’ he said, and kissed me softly. I held his face in my hands and kissed him back. I felt that life just couldn’t get any more perfect. And I was right, it wouldn’t. By the end of the next day, I’d be dead.

Lucy is about to marry the man of her dreams – kind, handsome, funny Dan – when she breaks her neck the night before their wedding. Unable to accept a lifetime’s separation from her soulmate, Lucy decides to become a ghost rather than go to heaven and be parted from Dan. But it turns out things aren’t quite as easy as that.

When Lucy discovers that Limbo is a grotty student-style house in North London she’s less than thrilled. Especially after meeting her new flatmates: grumpy, cider-swilling EMO-kid Claire; and Brian, a train-spotter with a Thomas the Tank Engine duvet and a big BO problem. But Lucy has a more major problem on her hands – if she wants to become a ghost and be with Dan she has to complete an almost impossible task. How the hell does a girl like Lucy find a girlfriend for the dorkiest man in England? IT geek Archie’s only passions are multi-player computer games and his Grandma. But Lucy only has twenty-one days to find him love. And when she discovers that her so-called friend Anna is determined to make a move on the heart-broken, vulnerable Dan, the pressure is really on…

Interested? Well I am here to let you know you can win your very own shiny copy. Not just any old copy. Oh No. A SIGNED COPY. No more, no less.

Winning could not be more simple. I was thinking of running a clever competition but I have zero free braincells (ahh baby brain) to think up something fancy so if you leave me a comment your name is in the proverbial hat!

Want to increase your chances? If you complete one or more of the following you will get extra entries:
1) Follow this blog (if you do already mention this in your comment)
2) Blog about this competition with a link to this post on your own blog (and let me know in the comments)
3) Tweet this competition including my twitter name (@Kellyfairy) so I know all about it!

So, a maximum of 4 entries per person. Closing date will be Wednesday 21st October at 5pm and Piran and I will pick the winner out of the hat shortly after.

Check out Cally’s website www.callytaylor.co.uk for further information on the lovely lady herself and more exciting competitions to co-incide with the publication of “Heaven Can Wait” on 15 October 2009, including the very special ‘Heaven Can Wait Short Story Competition’ (with prizes that money can’t buy!). The book is available from Amazon now.

Well good luck with the giveaway Kelly – I'm generally out of range for the giveaways, but it sounds like a great book. I've actually visited her website and I'm sort of considering entering the short story competition. Back with you – oh and I'm delighted you're visiting me again – I knew you before you were Kelly – Dancinfairy!!!!
