Thanks for entering the Magickal Agency contest and spreading the word, friends. In choosing a winner, I disqualified anyone who claimed not to like olives. Then I was consumed with pity for the misguided, olive-fearing people (because you can’t really claim to live a full and happy life without olives) and put you back in the contest. All right. So.
The randomly selected winner of the Stephanie Burgis prize pack, which includes the gorgeous UK edition of A Most Improper Magick and a set of bookmarks and postcards, is…
Shel! Congratulations! Please send me your mailing address and I’ll get the book in the post.
I imagine the rest of you are saddened by this. You should be, because Steph’s book is absolutely wonderful and won’t be published in North America until April 2011. But if more conversation and prizes are what you’re after, there is some consolation…
Come to my online launch party for The Body at the Tower on Tuesday, where there shall be all manner of bookish chatter and prizes, oh yes. The lovely people at Candlewick Press and Walker Books UK will be there, refilling your virtual wineglasses. I’ll be giving away Agency t-shirts and stickers, and my publishers will be giving away books! Yes, I said books! The details, again:
UK/Europe: Tuesday, 28 September at 16.00 BST
US/Canada: Tuesday, September 28 at 4pm EST
The hashtag is #bodytower.
(Of course, you can attend whichever party you like. They’re just meant to be at convenient times.)
And there’s a traditional launch party, of course:
Wednesday, September 29 at 7.00pm
Novel Idea Books, 156 Princess St, Kingston
See you next week, at some point! And remember to click over to Steph’s blog to see if you won her contest.
