Competition with Lovely Prizes!

For the next three weeks, in the run-up to the paperback publication of my new novel, The Silent Touch of Shadows, you will have a chance to win some fabulous prizes!  We (the Choc Lit team and I) decided to have some fun with weekly competitions rather than a launch party. So I do hope you’ll join in!

On publication day itself, Saturday 7th July, we’ll be giving away the top prize – a Kindle, pre-loaded with some of mine and the other Choc Lit authors’ award-winning novels! – to one lucky person who has entered the contest during the previous weeks and the final day.  To make it fair, we’ll put all the names in a hat and draw one at random.  It could be you!

Now for the first two weeks, we would like you to guess the answer to a question and we’ll be posting one clue a day to help you out.  During this time, there will also be random book giveaways to those folks that RT on Twitter, Share on Facebook and generally spread the word – so there’s a chance to win something every day.  What could be better?

So can you guess what this week’s prize is? Well, that’s the first question, and here’s the first clue – it’s something you can wear on your wrist (and it’s vaguely related to the book of course). We’ll be giving you four more clues – one each day, on Twitter, Facebook and here on my blog.  Once you know the answer, please leave a comment here.  The correct one, plus the week’s winner, will be revealed here in a week’s time, together with next week’s competition.

Please keep checking Twitter (@PiaCCourtenay), Facebook and my blog for clues and best of luck everyone!

(And if you don’t want to wait, The Silent Touch of Shadows is available now on Kindle)


  1. Sparkly fun instead of a blog tour … fab idea 🙂

    The first answer has to be a watch!

  7. I’m still gonna guess the same thing. I hope that’s okay. A silver bracelet that looks like a dragon eating its own tail. *fingers crossed*
