#Giveaway Two Signed Copies of All Hallows at Eyre Hall!

Paperback copies of All Hallows at Eyre Hall, have just arrived for my first book signing event, later this month (more news soon!). I’m so excited! Aren’t they beautiful?

I published the kindle version in May 2014. I wasn’t sure, at the time, if I’d ever publish it in paperback, but I was persuaded by some close family and friends who don’t read ebooks. Namely, my mother, Anna, Pam, Kumi, and Vivian, are partly responsible for this singular event! Thank you for pushing me into publishing it in print!

I know some people have already had it in their hands since it was published in paperback in July, 2015, just two months ago! More people will be holding my books and literally turning the pages very soon! What an overwhelming and motivating thought!

To celebrate this unique event, this week I’m giving away two signed copies of All Hallows at Eyre Hall, Book I of The Eyre Hall Trilogy, to two lucky blog followers.

This is what you have to do:

1- Click on ‘Read the First Chapter of ‘All Hallows at Eyre Hall’, top right on my blog. It will take you to chapter one on Amazon. As you probably know, Amazon has a ‘look inside’ feature, which enables you to read the first 10% of any book before deciding whether to buy.

Most of this first chapter, Mr. Mason’s Visit, is a tense conversation between Mr. Richard Mason and Mrs. Rochester.

2- To enter the draw, answer this question by commenting below:

Which do you think is the most dramatic sentence in the chapter?

There are plenty to choose from!

You have until Friday, 2nd October, to post your comments!

The winner will be chosen by my grandchild’s innocent hand! I’ll give each comment a number, and put the bingo balls in a jar. Elsa Luna, to whom the book is dedicated, will take out two.

Make sure you comment on my granny’s book!

Good luck!

I’m looking forward to reading your comments!

  1. The first chapter certainly was titillating and tense. You’re correct, there were many dramatic sentences, but the one that stood out for me was the thinly veiled insult of: “….I merely point out that by her death she opened many doors…for both of you.”. Ouch.
    I’d love to
    Hope this day is treating you kindly. 🙂

    1. Mmmm. I always wondered what Rochester was doing on the roof with his ‘mad’ wife, Mrs. Rochester, otherwise known as Bertha Mason. Would he really risk his own life to save Bertha and put her back inside a windowless attic? I also wonder why Charlotte Bronte didn’t tie her death up more clearly. Why did she leave those spaces in the narrative? Thank you for your comment 🙂

  2. Here is the sentence I chose… it gave me chills. “It’s not difficult to become a lunatic, if one is confined and tortured for ten years.”

    1. Thank you for sharing. I love that line, too. I always thought Bertha Mason, Rochester’s first wife was too easily dismissed as a lunatic. One of the reasons I wrote this novel was to build awareness and somehow revindicate Bertha and expose Rochester. Some readers are upset with the way Rochester is portrayed. I still think he loved Jane, madly, obsessively, but that doesn’t mean we should forgive him for locking up his first wife in the attic!
