TSTOS Competition – Final Week!

Official publication day of The Silent Touch of Shadows is getting closer, only a few days to go! Pre-launch celebrations continue here, on Twitter, FB and on the Choc Lit website, and as promised you’ll have a chance to win a Kindle loaded with some of Choc Lit’s fab novels.  So here’s what you have to do in order to enter the competition.

Simply answer the following questions (some research required):-

How many books has Christina Courtenay published with Choc Lit?

Highland Storms won which award?

Which century is The Silent Touch of Shadows partly set in?

Trade Winds is the prequel to which novel?

Who was abducted by a samurai warlord in 17th century Japan?

Save your answers, as there’s a catch – you need to email the answers to info@choc-lit.com on Publication Day – Saturday 7th July.  Emails must be received on the 7th July (GMT) to be eligible.  A winner with all correct answers will be selected randomly using random.org.  Emails received before or after the 7th July (GMT) will not be eligible.

GOOD LUCK!

TSTOS Competition – Week 2 – Entry Details

If you’d like to enter the second week’s The Silent Touch of Shadows competition and win one of these sweet little ghost charms, here are the details again:-

All you have to do is guess the ghost’s name, either here or on Twitter or Facebook and as before, I’ll give you five clues – look out for them at lunchtime (weekdays only)!

The ghost in The Silent Touch of Shadows is called Sir Roger, as he’s a medieval knight and warrior.  That was also the name of the real ghost he is based on, so I didn’t have much choice when it came to naming him.  However, there was another name I considered giving him and that’s the one you have to guess.

Clue number 1 – “It’s a very noble sort of name” (and he is a knight, so ‘Sir [name]’ of course)

Clue number 2 – “It was used by the Normans”

Clue number 3 – “It’s the name of a famous actor”

Clue number 4 – “Half of it is the first name of a UK singer”

Clue number 5 – “The actor’s surname is Ackland and the singer’s is Stone”

I’ll announce the winner tomorrow – good luck!

TSTOS Competition – 1st Winner!

So here he is, the prize for the first week of the competition, and Sharon Wilden guessed correctly – a little ghost charm!  Congratulations on winning, he’ll be on his way to you very soon, Sharon!  And thank you to everyone who entered!

Tara Chevrestt, you were the runner-up and as your very first guess was brilliant, you’ll be receiving a signed copy of The Silent Touch of Shadows in the post – congratulations!

Anyone who didn’t win this week, don’t despair though as there is another one of these cute little ghosts to be won next week.  All you have to do is guess his name either here or on Twitter or Facebook and as before, I’ll give you five clues – look out for them at lunchtime (weekdays only)!

The ghost in The Silent Touch of Shadows is called Sir Roger, as he’s a medieval knight and warrior.  That was also the name of the real ghost he is based on, so I didn’t have much choice when it came to naming him.  However, there was another name I considered giving him and that’s the one you have to guess.  Look out for clue number 1 on Twitter and FB today!

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)
