THE WINNER OF THIS COMPETITION WAS DRAWN OUT AND IS A MRS ANNE-MARIE BIRD – the winner has been contacted and the prize is on the way to her!

It’s not long now until the paperback of The Woman In The Middle is out (March 3rd). Do check in at my appearances page for events where you can get your book signed in person and I’ve got a zillion matching pens to give out (sorry can’t sell them online). It is available for preorder from The Book Vault in Barnsley but please note you have to order directly with them to get a free pen – also available if they post the book out to you because they’re nice like that (FB, Insta, Twitter – @thebookvault07, website and contact details)

It’s a story about family, in particular MOTHERS so it’s an ideal story for your mum. And you can always send off for a free bookmark and signed bookplate to stick in to make it special if you can’t get to a signing. They’re free (for the price of an SAE) I can write a Mother’s Day message on it for her. Details here.

But you could win an early copy with a swanky notebook and pen and bookmark AND orange chocs (nothing beats a colour theme!) All you have to do is answer this very simple question before midnight on Saturday 26th February to be in with a chance.
