Winner Lian Tanner Book Give-away!

Lian says:

Such wonderful museum suggestions from everyone – which made it very hard to choose between them! I particularly loved Sean’s Museum of Lost Ideas, and I adored Thoraiya’s Museum of Bankrupt Theme Parks. But my favourite was Callum’s Museum of Lego People Come to Life – mainly because the lego people help you build other creations, and then one of them goes home with you, which would make life OUTSIDE the museum rather exciting.

So first prize to Callum, who can choose which he would like: either an audio book of ‘Museum of Thieves’ (Book 1 in the Keepers trilogy), or a paperback copy of the US edition of ‘Museum of Thieves’, or a hardback of the US edition of ‘City of Lies’ (Book 2).

But I’m going to give a second prize as well, to Thoraiya for her Bankrupt Theme Parks, because it’s a place I’d particularly love to visit. Once Callum has chosen his prize, Thoraiya can choose hers from the two remaining.

Thanks so much to everyone who sent in their suggestions. Callum and Thoraiya, please email me: lian (at) liantanner (dot) com to work out which prize you want and where I should send it.

Winner Gaie Sebold Book Give-away!

Gaie says:

There were some great answers.  Ani I thought was particularly interesting and well organised, Ian Golledge and graywaveraham Storrs made me laugh out loud, as did Greta van der Rol.

But for a combination of enthusiasm and practicality, I think it has to go to Cecilia Jansink.  Thanks so much to everyone for your responses!

Cecilia, you can email Gaie to organise your prize.

A question for fantasy lovers…

I’ve had someone ask –  if they liked King Rolen’s Kin, what should they read next.

It seemed like the perfect opportunity to ask readers for their opnion so I’m throwing it open to you.

What authors/fantasy trilogies would you recommend for someone who loved the KRK trilogy?

Nook offers 44% discount on KRK trilogy

Barnes and Noble Nook are offering a big discount on the KRK e-book bundle – 44% .

(I don’t know how they come up with figures like this, but I’m not complaining)

If you have an e-reader it looks like a good deal.
