BECOMING BELLE - COVER REVEAL GIVEAWAY




UPDATE - The winner of the proof copy of Becoming Belle is Mary T. Bradford. Congrats, Mary!




*

Writing  - and life - busy-ness has kept me from here but I'm back with a cover reveal and a giveaway. These beauties arrived today  - proof copies of Becoming Belle, out August with GP Putnam in NY and Penguin Canada. Aren't they gorgeous?!?

Becoming Belle is described as 'a witty and inherently feminist novel about passion and marriage, based on a true story of an unstoppable woman ahead of her time in Victorian London.'

So, dear readers, if you like the sound of that, I want you to read it asap. Leave a comment to be in the draw - saying that you want to be in the hat - and I will pick one name this day next week, Friday the 12th. Please DO NOT leave comment as 'unknown' - I can't contact an unknown!

Worldwide giveaway. Good luck!

*PLEASE CHECK BACK NEXT FRIDAY FOR WINNER! I WILL DRAW A NEW WINNER IF PRIZE IS NOT CLAIMED BY FRIDAY 19th JAN.*

So exciting! I would love to have a copy to be an early reader. Also, I found a really interesting sounding podcast the other day that made think of you - it's all about fascinating bad ass women in history. I found it through Instagram and once I remember the name I will tag you on it. I haven't listened to it yet because I rarely make time to listen to podcasts (and I'm supposed to be writing) but I think it will be my new favourite thing to do while knitting.

Would love to be entered.

One of the first books I had ordered through the Book Depository (I live in the u.s.) was your novel "You." I was doing research for my own coming-of-age novel that, unfortunately, is still unwritten,yet still languishing in my imagination.

Oregon calling, yes please Belle Nuala.

This would be a welcome addition to my (nearly exclusively) Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian fiction - would look so good with this lovely cover next to my Georgette Heyers, Jane Austen’s and Edith Wharton! Can’t wait to read it Nuala Best wishes Vanessa Hyde, Lismore, Waterford

'an unstoppable woman ahead of her time in Victorian London' - I'm sold already just on that snippet! Please put my name into the hat as August is an awfully long time to wait before I can read it!
