Penguin/Random House, my publisher, is running a sweepstakes contest from the last part of January, 2017, to February 17, in order to promote my new book, Someone to Hold, due out on February 7. It’s a fantastic prize:
–a Fortnum and Mason tea hamper
–a Royal Albert tea set for one
–copies of Someone to Hold, Someone to Love, Indiscreet, Unforgiven, and Irresistible
-a Mary Balogh tote bag
–oh, and five consolation prizes of copies of Someone to Hold, Book 2 of the new Westcott family series–Camille’s story.
There is–or there was–just one catch! The contest is open to U.S. citizens only. This is always a huge frustration to would-be entrants from everywhere else in the world. I know–I live in Canada and have been a victim of of other similar contests. However, when I had a word with the people at Penguin/Random House, they were understanding and sympathetic and very willing to furnish an identical prize for a contest to be run separately on my Facebook author page for people who are ineligible for the sweepstakes. A huge thank you to them for that!
So….. Here is how to enter:
–if you are an American citizen, enter the sweepstakes here: https://sweeps.penguinrandomhouse.com/enter/mary-balogh-sweepstakes
–if you are a citizen of anywhere else in the world except the U.S., enter on my FB page: www.facebook.com/AuthorMaryBalogh . The contest notice is pinned to the top of the page. Leave a comment there that includes your country.
The drawing for both major prizes plus the ten consolation prizes will be made on February 17. Check back here or on my FB page then to see if you are a winner. Good luck!
