Announcement from Linda T. Smith (Fingersmith)
A book giveaway for anyone who is interested! This could be for many many reasons. One, it could be to celebrate the release of the new anthology from Ylva Unwrap These Presents. Two, it might be because I had completely forgotten to do a book giveaway for Still Life and also for Forget Me Not. The list could go on, but I don't think you will be interested in knowing the ins and outs. Grin.

Up for grabs:
Signed copy of Still Life
Ebook of Still Life
Three ebook copies of Forget Me Not
And one ebook copy of either Hearts and Flowers Border, Puppy Love or See Right Through Me.

What you have to do is simple. Let me know you are interested. So, either in a comment on my facebook page or to my email let me know two of your choices.

Closing date: 22 November at midnight.

Good luck.

Linda T Smith

Just a reminder that all proceeds from Forget Me Not go to the Alzheimer's Society.
