Paris Mon Amour Competition – Win Signed Advance Copies

By Isabel Costello @isabelcostello

Paris Mon Amour competition – win signed advance copiesOn Monday I returned from a week staying in the 5th arrondissement in Paris, a very enjoyable mix of long walks (totalling 99km, no less), art exhibitions, inspiration for my next novel, seeing friends and spending Easter weekend with my family – most of it in glorious spring weather.

I’ve written many pieces about Paris and there are more in the pipeline; that’s not what today’s post is about, although I couldn’t resist a few pictures. I like the one above because the stone book bench reminds me of the logo I designed for the Literary Sofa imprint.

And that brings me to the matter in hand: tomorrow is going to be a big day, when I take delivery of my personal consignment of Paris Mon Amour paperbacks, a month ahead of the official release on 22 May. I’ve gone to great lengths to make this happen – with the help of some amazing people – but still it’s hard to believe I’m going to get to hold my novel, turn the pages and see it on a shelf!

To share some of the fun and excitement with you, I’m running a little competition today and tomorrow, mostly on Twitter, but also here so nobody has to miss out.

If you are on Twitter, please look out for this (below) on my timeline, share with your followers and tweet me your entry over there.  If not, you’re welcome to enter via the comments section on this post. Any help spreading the word is hugely appreciated – I much prefer shouting about other people’s books!

TERMS & CONDITIONS

  • One entry per person, open to anyone aged 18 or over.
  • To enter, name your favourite French ‘thing’ of any kind – a book, film, place, food, wine, perfume, keepsake…basically anything except a person. (You can attach an image, but this is optional.)
  • Five winners will receive a signed (and if you wish, dedicated) advance paperback edition of Paris Mon Amour: four will be picked by random number generator and one will go to the person who submitted the ‘best’ entry, in my opinion (it is my competition, after all).

The deadline for entries is Friday 21 April, 6pm UK time. The winners will be announced here on Saturday 22 April and will be contacted individually for their postal address. I will also list the entries for posterity.

Enjoy re-living your favorite French haunts and pleasures – I look forward to hearing about them! Meanwhile, here are some of mine from last week…
