Every week we run a giveaway on Twitter. The giveaway usually gets somewhere between 500-1000 people entering. They are only open to UK residents.

If you would like your book to be part of the giveaway then read on.

– The giveaway is for physical books only.
You can add merchandise with it if you wish
You can either post your book to us, send it via Amazon, or another bookshop, or if you are outside the UK you can send us money via Paypal* to cover the cost of purchasing your book.
You also pay for half the postage costs via Paypal or in cash if you want to send it with your book (£1.60).

How it works-
You send us a copy of your book either in hardback or paperback (or we purchase it with funds sent)
You send us half the postage cost – £1.60 either in cash or via Paypal
