A FREE Bumper Sack of Summer Reads
FREE books for your summer beach read!
I am taking part in a promotion with eight other novelists. We are offering book lovers the chance to win signed copies of our novels to enjoy beside the pool.
The promotion runs from 7 May to 11 June 2012.
Nine writers from Ireland, Britain, France and Spain have banded together to offer some lucky person a chance to win ‘A Bumper Sack of Summer Reads.’
Simply go to author Kristin Gleeson’s website, www.kristingleeson.com and leave a message that mentions ‘Bumper Sack of Summer Reads’ and you could be the lucky winner!
But hurry! This fabulous offer only runs between 7th May and 11th June 2012.
‘What better treat for book lovers than a FREE sack of books?’ says Kristin Gleeson, the offer’s coordinator. ‘It reminds me of going to the library when I was young, coming back with a pile of books and taking ages to decide which one to read first. It was like a feast for me.’ Her own book, Selkie Dreams, an historical novel set in 19th Century Belfast and Alaska is one of the books included.
The sack contains a wide variety of books and there should be something for everyone to enjoy. For a wet weekend or a day on the beach, the thriller, Mrs. Jones by B.A. Morton (second prize winner at the Yeovil Literary Festival) offers a gripping pacey read about a New York cop and an English woman who witnesses a murder.
For historical thriller lovers there’s Gallow’s Curse, by Karen Maitland, set in Medieval England. The year is 1210 and King John has seized control of the Church. In the village of Gastmere Elena, a servant girl, is dragged into a conspiracy to absolve the sins of the manor.
Or if political intrigue and romance ticks boxes for you, Jean Gill’s Song at Dawn, set in 12th Century Provence is just the ticket. Love, music and political intrigue surround Estela in the royal court of Narbonne.
Garden fans, especially tulip lovers, might enjoy The Chosen Man by J.G. Harlond, set against the backdrop of the great ‘tulip fever,’ in the 17th Century, when the price of tulip bulbs might fetch more than a rare gem.
Dave Evardson offers a book for fantasy lovers with The Fenwold Riddle. Brave young Marshal Dominic Bradley is charged with finding a way through the impenetrable wall that encloses the land of Fenwold.
Runner- up for the McKitterick Prize and BBC Radio 4 programme ‘A Good Read’ selection, Frances Kay’s gripping novel, Micka is about two boys who take a game to dangerous ends.
Those who like a bit of supernatural spice to their reading would love Moonyeen Blakey’s The Assassin’s Wife, a tale of a young woman seer whose vision of two princes in the tower leads her into danger.
And last but not least, check out my own historical novel Catching the Eagle, based on the true story of our regency ancestor who was at the centre of Northumberland’s most notorious miscarriage of justice.
