This has been drawn – thank you for entering and the book will be on its way to Jackie as soon as she sends her address.

#NationalNorthernAuthorsDay is officially now on 1st July every year. We thought it would be nice to showcase people whose writing has a connection to the north or they are from the north themselves. We hope that readers will discover some new authors they haven’t tried and new authors will be encouraged to write about where they come from.  It’s totally inclusive – we hope ALL writers from the north will join in, and readers will find their perfect book match. So do follow hashtag #NationalNorthernWritersDay across all social media.

And to celebrate – I’m giving away one of my brand new (just opened them) hot from the press My One True North paperbacks. It’s the story of two young people who meet after their respective partners pass away. Are they meant to be together – or does life have other plans for them? One of these belongs to someone reading this no. Signed, sealed and delivered. All you have to do is tell me what your favourite book about the north is, or northern writer …and why (but it can’t be me, because that would be just too up myself, though I appreciate anyone saying it). I will announce the winner tomorrow – 2nd July. No need to send me your address – I’ll contact the winner to ask for that. Send your answer here  

Good luck!
