Closed Book With Clasps On The Lap Of Robert I...Image by takomabibelot via Flickr

I wanted to do this earlier, but with Maya being sick I just had to postpone it until I saw I'd run out of time if I wouldsn't do it ...This is a project of mine, as I intend to have a few book giveaways this year and at the beginning of next year.
First giveaway is for FANTASY LITERATURE lovers, as the book is Russell Kirkpatrick's "Across the Face of the World" (the first book in the "Fire of Heaven" trilogy. You can read about the author and his books here:
Now, what do you have to do? Easy! To enter you have to:
1. Leave a comment about why you would like to win this book - 1 entry.
1. Follow my blog and you'll have 2 entries for the giveaway.
2. If you are already a follower, you have 3 entries.
3. Twitter about the giveaway and you have 3 entries.
4. Follow me on Twitter and you have 2 entries. My twitter name is Ramona2006
4. Read any of my blog posts and tell me something about it - 4 entries.
5. Blog about it (leave a link) - 5 entries.
So, do all of them and you have a serious chance of winning the book. The winner will be selected by my daughter Maya (you know, the classical "names written on bits of paper" method) on the 25th of December.
The contest is open WORLDWIDE and it runs until the 25th of December, of course.
And don't forget. This is the first giveaway from a series of a few...
Good luck and don't forget to leave your email!

Melissa, I read your blog on a regular basis and I think you are great! So it is a great honor for me to have you as a follower. Thank you!
Kirkpatrick is a promising writer and after a rough start - the first time I read his book I put it down after a few pages - I gave the book another try and I must say I wasn't dissapointed!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Wow, thank you! I am glad you enjoy the blog, some days I start to wonder if anyone really stops by - but I just keep going because I enjoy it.

I am going to have to keep an eye out for this book here after the new year and check it out.
