What is this all about? LYNN SHEPHERD & THE #AUSTENMURDERMATCHIt's about  ... a great fun event Lynn Shepherd, author of Murder at Mansfield Park and Tom-All-Alones (to be released on February 2012) has just launched on her site and on twitter.She’s going to pitch two Janeite murder mysteries (her Murder at Mansfield Park and P.D. James’s Death Comes to Pemberley ) together, head to head, and see which one we readers think comes out on top. She’s inviting anyone who’s read both books to write a short review comparing the two, andgiving them each a score. The #AustenMurderMatch will start on December 26th and run till Monday 9th January 2012, and at the end all the scores will be added up and the winner announced!Three of the reviewers who take part will also be chosen at random to receive a prize: 1.     One UK reviewer will receive a copy of my next book, Tom-All-Alone’s, a murder mystery inspired by Charles Dickens’ Bleak House2.       One US or Canada reviewer will receive a copy of my Dickens book under its North American title,            The Solitary House3.       And one reviewer from the rest of the world will receive a signed copy of Murder at Mansfield Park. I’ve already accepted the invitation and ... sharpened my quill! Do you want to know what you need to do to take part in the event? Send Lynn Shepherd an email at[email protected]before midnight UK time on Sunday 8th January. The email needs to contain: •            Your Twitter name•            A review, in English, comparing Death Comes to Pemberley and Murder at Mansfield Park. This                  should be no more than 150 words long. •            A score out of ten for each of the books.•         The country where you live (this will not be made public – it’s purely for the purpose of the prize draw). All reviews will be published in full on Lynn’s website (including your Twitter name), though of course she reserves the right not to publish anything I’m sent that’s inappropriate or offensive. Hopefully there will be enough reviews to allow her to publish them in batches, so we can keep a running score of which book is winning! And of course you can publish your own review on your blog or elsewhere if you want to as well. If you got any question, do not esitate to write Lynn Shepherd at the e-mail address given above.
